The Ego, Karma and Maya
« on: October 24, 2009, 01:55:24 PM »
The Ego, Karma and Maya are said to be the three impurities
of living beings.  Ego is ofccurse, is the sternest. They exist together.  It is like my wearing a banian, a shirt and then a coat.  But when we remove them, we remove the last worn item first.  There is no first come, first served basis.  Thus, the banian,
is removed last.  In the same manner, ego has to be vanquished
last.  The karma and maya can be removed by good karmas and
understanding the illusory world through devotion.  But ego will
not give up its fight easily.  It can be removed only through self
enquiry, of course, with Guru's grace in abundance.
