Destroy ego if you want to grow the highest; as by dissolving self into soil a seed manifests as grand tree.

Re: Ego

Every Guru here quotes destroy ego, kill ego, etc.
But no Guru gives an idea how to destroy it.
It is easy to say but difficult to destroy ego.
I doubt all those Gurus who said so really have their egos destroyed?

Guru is the one who has not

Guru is the one who has not false ego. And if he tells about destroying ego he tells also how to do it. Yes, it is difficult to destroy ego, but doesnt meant that it is not possible. All depends from efforts of a person. If disciple follows insturcions and practices given by Guru, then he can destroy his ego. If he tells: oh, no, it is so difficult, then it is not a problem of a Guru.

Re: Guru is the one who has not

There is nothing like false or true ego. Ego is ego. One has to kill all egos (according to you false or true) then only we can say one has killed his ego.
How can you say Guru has no ego? How can a disciple know that his Guru has killed his ego? If disciple judges it is again the work of ego.
Even if one says he has killed his ego then also it is work of ego.
Ego is so subtle that driven by ego we are posting blogs, comments, replies to comments, etc. but we don't know that we are driven by ego.
