In our pursuit of happiness and to achieve a feeling of well being there are are just three letters – EGO! The second obstacle being our Wants and desires. To reduce our ego we need to be be aware constantly on how we react to situations. Our ego has deep roots and just when we think we have risen above our ego it springs up silently. And our mind gets disturbed and uneasy.
If only we can surrender our ego all other weaknesses disappear effortlessly. Surrendering ego does not make us timid and meek on the other hand it makes us invincible. So to be joyful and tranquil in our mind we need to test our capacity to remain unaffected and peacful whatever be the situation
Lets get inspired by Lord Buddha’s wisdom:
My good friend Biswadip in his comment below added this video in which the Holy Panchen Lama explains “Beyond Ego”! I have uploaded it in the post itself as it is indeed very powerful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA-2_W7GrL4
A special thanks to Biswadip.
