Mesirut nefesh -- Hebrew term for self sacrifice -- means both "giving of life" and "giving of will." Self sacrifice is not just the willingness to die for one's beliefs; it is the way in which one lives for them. It is the willingness to sacrifice one's "self" -- one's desires, one's preconceptions, one's most basic inclinations.
