Dear Sankar,  Bhagavan said two things, one is vichara and another
is surrender.  In both, the ego has to be annihilated.  In vichara, you
enquire within, with no thoughts, ego et all and merge in the Self.
In surender, He meant a total surrender and a conditional surrender.
When someone came to Bhagavan saying that he is a great sinner,
Bhagavan said, 'then give all your sins to me and surrender without
any qualms'.  If this can happen, then it is total surrender, where also
the ego is totally destroyed.  In sum the purpose of life is to kill the
mind and the ego either way, vichara or saranagati.  Arunachala Siva.

Dear sir

HOW TO IDENTIFY THIS IS EGO?

QUARELLSOME IS EGO; SILENCE IS PEACE

ARGUMENT IS EGO; DISCUSSION IS PEACE

QUARREL, ARGUMENT, ANGER, SUPERIOR FEELING, PARTIALITY, DIFFERENTIATION.


EGOLESS STATE

SILENCE, EQUALITY, SUBMISSIVE, SELF CONTROLLING

When the basic form of exclusive self consciousness is mixed with adjuncts a seemingly compound consciousness appear which imagines itself to be a body so distorts the
self conscious being "I am" to a limited object knowing consciousness which we commonly call as the mind or ego.The act of directing our consciousness towards something that appears other than ourself is what we call thinking.All objects come into existence only because of act of knowing them.Thoughts and images arise in our mind,they are formed by action of thinking or imagining them,an action that can  occur only when we allow our attention to move seemingly away from ourself.
Self-enquiry directs our attention selfwards and there no oscillation of attention and consciousness is concentrated in the core of our being as self consciousness.In this state of being ego is found to be nonexistent and the question of killing a nonexistent entity does not arise.

i'm not guilty for having no verdicts
my discourses rivers are flowing upwards
my temples and libraries as if made of cards
suddenly burst into laughing at once
i'm not guilty, not afraid anymore
a lie does not trouble my soul as before
i'm no longer ironic to Love
let It break down, let It blow up
whatever - i used to believe – was decent
whatever – i thought – was my realization
whatever i – i thought -- was exactly myself
no comment – just ego annihilation

All the best. Try your hard practice of self enquiry with deep devotion and dedication with purity of heart.
Dont forget the trio PATIENCE, PERSISTENT, TOLERANCE

I’d like to try --
But why, but why?
You tell me how –
I’m happy now.

Can ego kill the ego? No.
My Lord just smiled and let it go.

Dear,

As thorn is removed by another thorn. Ego needs to be annihilated with the ego.
Ego as a thought is the doership
I am egoful is the thought; and this thought is sprouting from the I thought, so enquiring with other thought whom this all arising is to that I. Who is that I. I am that I is the only I.

In the presence of Lord no ego exist as He is egoless but I am not. This is what happens in front of the Lord that can not be expressed but to experienced.

Kindly correct me, please

Dera SANKAR,

Can a thorn be removed not by another thorn but by itself?

are you really ready to remove a thorn by the same thorn
when you might get a splinter in your foot?

yes. it is a proverb in tamil.

If a thorn stitches it needs to be removed by a sharp pin. But how it was done before pin was discovered.
That is the way.

I humbly said what I know. please tell me if any better and easy way.

thanks

with love sankar

Are you sure you have a thorn in your foot? May be it's just an imaginary thorn?

Dear Vladimir and everyone,  all these thorn discussions are
futile.  There is no thorn.  We 'think' that there is a thorn,
and we 'think' some other thorn will remove it.
