Title: False ego
User: Gouranga dasa Date: 2007-04-08 16:07:22
Our body has senses; touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight. These five senses are grouped around the mind. Higher than the mind is the intelligence, and higher than the intelligence is the consciousness, which is us. We wrongly identify ourself with the intelligence, mind and senses, and this is known as false ego.
When the body dies, the consciousness moves onto another body with senses grouped around the mind, and we again identify with that body, mind and senses, be it human or animal or any other species.
When we resume our original ego through Mantra meditation, we no longer suffer the fears and anxieties of identifying with a temporaray material body, and all the miseries asssociated with the false ego.
