Driving out ego in us should be our primary mottoEgo in us dragging us into a deep sea of sorrow. Without knowing this point, we all of us possessing ego in us and wandering in this world.
Being a human being, the name, education, income, respect are given to us by others only and even the first and last bath, first and last feeding are done by others, why, the funeral services and burial also done by others. In such circumstances, we possess ego and offer nothing others from
our side. How fool we are as deriving help from others in our entire life, we are offers nothing.
Once upon a time, a Rishi was having his parnasala cum patasala in a den and having many disciples learning from him by construing him as Guru. However the ego among them was not went away or even diminished. Often they fought themselves that 'I am the senior'. This made the Guru very much worried and he wanted to remove the ego in them. One day, another Rishi from Nothern part of the country came there to see the Guru as he went to Himalayas and other places. After discussion on many things each other, one fine morning on his leaving the visitor Rishi gave a speech to the students. He, during his speech, narrated many things about the
divine and he told that ,'the main purpose of visiting this parnasala that as it was told by Lord Shiva in divine voice that He, Lord Shiva is in this parnasala in the guise of one student. I do not know Lord Shiva is in which student, so, I worship all of you in the form of Shiva'. With this he saluted all the students by asking them to stand before him and went out. Since then, there was a change among the students and they act every moment by keeping in mind that the other may be Lord Shiva. They drive away all their ego and act uniformly. The Rishi felt happy.
This may be a story read by me and narrated here but in the real sense the Lord is in us only so, we should keep in our mind that we should not err on any situation as He is watching us every moment. We should leave ego from us.
