Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The spiritual knowledge spoken previously is further narrated here. Rituals mean sacrifices of worship and propitiation. True sacrifice means the renunciation of wealth by humbly offering it in the service of the Supreme Lord. It is also stated in the Vedic sciptures that in relationship to the Supreme Lord the renunciation of wealth is considered sacrifice.
