Selflessness and selfless service is not the same as self-sacrifice

Selflessness and perform selfless service is the main part of yoga practice. It's about performing action without egoism. There is no ego or 'I', and hence, there's no attachment or identification with the actions and the fruit of actions. Selflessness and selfless service is not about self-sacrifice. It's not about sacrifice 'myself' to put other beings before 'I'. They are two different things.

One can be performing many actions including yoga practice, rituals and self-sacrificed actions, but one isn't practicing yoga if one doesn't know what is performing action without egoism.

Be free from the idea of 'I' sacrifice 'myself' to put other beings and their benefits in front of 'I' and 'my benefits'. But there's no 'I' or 'my benefits' to be sacrificed for other beings. There's no separation. There's no this being and other beings. Be kind to others is being kind to oneself, and be kind to oneself is being kind to others.

There's no sacrifice.

Om shanti.

About Yoga

Know thyself. Everything is impermanent and selfless. There is no 'I'. There is no 'I am selfless'/'I am not selfless'. There is no 'I am hurt'/'I need to be healed from hurt'. Non-blind believing, non-blind following, non-blind practicing and non-blind propagating, but be open-minded to inquire the truth of everything. Be free. Be peaceful. Be happy.
