The problems facing society at this point in our history cannot be successfully met with the same attitude that created them. The fundamental problem facing humanity is the attitude of egocentricity and the subsequent development of attachment. Attachment has a deleterious effect on one’s sense of autonomy and subjective well-being, as well as creating conflict with the environment. The ancient Indian principles known as the Vedantic tradition discussed the role of sacrifice in mediating human affairs. Sacrifice is the regulation of the mind’s egocentric activities, through circumventing them. This is done through the application of an ideal. Effects of attachment and the role of sacrifice in human life are discussed.
