Lower Your False Ego

Lower Your False Ego

False ego is mentioned in many verses of the Bhagavad-Gita.

A person with high false ego thinks as follows:

  • I am great and you are not
  • I am clean and everyone else is dirty
  • Only I am good and all others are bad
  • I know everything, others know nothing
  • I am better than others
  • I am sinless and others are all sinful
  • I am rich and all others are poor
  • I deserve the best and all others deserve the worst
  • I am best, and all others are the lowest
  • I am the best looking, and all others are ugly
  • My house is the best, and all others houses are bad
  • I am the most educated, all others are lowly educated
  • I am God
  • God is only close to me
  • Only I am a devotee and all others are not devotees
  • I am the greatest devotee
  • I am high and all others are low
  • I can do anything I like
  • I am in control of everything, all others have no control
  • I am the master and all others are my servants
  • My way is the best way
  • My way is the only way
  • I am the most intelligent, and all others are dumb


You and I, MUST give up all the above thoughts and think and behave like the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant of the servant… 

When we die, the mind, intelligence, and false ego, take us (the soul) to our next body. So in this life, develop a good mindset, develop higher spiritual intelligence, and lower your false ego. This will take you to a better life after this one. Then eventually back to the spiritual manifestation where everyone has ZERO false ego.  To go to the spiritual manifestation, one has to have ZERO false ego.

“Arrogance, pride, anger, conceit, harshness and ignorance-these qualities belong to those of demonic nature, O son of Prtha.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 16.4)

“One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor, who is free from false ego and equal both in happiness and distress, who is always satisfied and engaged in devotional service with determination and whose mind and intelligence are in agreement with Me-he is very dear to Me.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.13-14)

“A person who has given up all desires for sense gratification, who lives free from desires, who has given up all sense of proprietorship and is devoid of falseego—he alone can attain real peace.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.71)

“Humility, pridelessness, nonviolence, tolerance, simplicity, approaching a bona fide spiritual master, cleanliness, steadiness and self-control; renunciation of the objects of sense gratification, absence of false ego, the perception of the evil of birth, death, old age and disease; nonattachment to children, wife, home and the rest, and evenmindedness amid pleasant and unpleasant events; constant and unalloyed devotion to Me, resorting to solitary places, detachment from the general mass of people; accepting the importance of self-realization, and philosophical search for the Absolute Truth-all these I thus declare to be knowledge, and what is contrary to these is ignorance.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 13.8-12)
