Symbols of the world's religions

Unless we are stripped of all egoistic tendencies and desires, and unless our soul attains its original naked state, we cannot embrace God the Beloved Who is eternally naked in His infinity.

The Ego Becomes Very Thin And Weak
Just as the body feeds on food, so the mind feeds on desires, and indulgence in these desires feeds the mind and the ego.

All things and forms, individually as well as collectively, derive their existence as well as value from God.
He Remembers Who, In Reality, He Is

Any thought, feeling or action which savors of the separative ego springs from unqualified ignorance.

When the false ego is effaced, God manifests and plurality is merged in Unity forever.
What Is Meant By The Annihilation Of The Ego?
It means to be fully conscious in sound sleep — fully conscious in the fully unconscious state!
Whether They Are Good Or Bad
Actions continue whether they are good or bad, and therefore the Masters have said, "Act in such a way that the actions do not bind you and impressions are not created."
Lust, Greed And Anger
Lust, greed, and anger respectively have body, heart, and mind as their vehicles of expression.
Very Few Indeed
Every second, one suffers the poignant pain of ego elimination, culminating in utter resignation to the Divine Will.
What Else Would There Be To Know?

It is not what the world thinks of us that matters, but what God knows about us that matters.

You were left with the exhilarating knowledge that you had actually triumphed over your formidable ego.
The Real Aspiration
The only experience which makes for the slimming down of the ego is the experience of love.
Deeper Surrender To The Beloved's Will
It [ego] struggles in the quagmire of existence, but each act of ego-affirmation invites a reaction of deeper surrender to the beloved's will.
The Tricks Of The Ego
The Ego is activated by the principle of self-perpetuation and has a tendency to live and grow through each and any means which is not closed to it.
Become An Ant
In the world, everyone wants to become an elephant.
All Such Moods Feed The Ego-Life
I do not like moods and therefore, to please Me, which is one of the best ways of showing your love for Me, try your best to overcome them.
Bit By Bit You Have To Go!
The less you think of yourself and the more you think of Baba, the sooner the ego goes and Baba remains.
Seeking God through the ego-mind is like trying to overtake your own shadow.
Extinguishing The Ego
After Bhauji finished his talk on the phone, he turned to us and said, "Only when you throw out the ego, then He will manifest in you and then you will have real poise.

Sense Of Self-Determination Annihilated
Sooner or later, each human being must be willing to annihilate for a time his own sense of self-determination in a sense of absolute trust of another.
Dr. Asthana's Deceit
"At the Agha Khan Palace," he answered, and I was impressed as it was a very expensive hotel.
Only Love Counts
When you say, "I am so and so," it is the false ego asserting the false self.

Existence is eternal, whereas life is perishable.
