Ego & Embodiment....

I don't believe that ego has so much to do with
embodiment as it does with an experience of individual
The finest layer of ego (Ahamkara) is necessary to
keep even a Master Sage in his body to pass on the
teachings, but even this can be likened to a wisp of
smoke after a blazing fire has been extinguished. It's
just the faintest memory, and does not effect the
overwhelming experience of his or her Enlightenment.
Jai Isham Ishvaram....
