Ego


Q.

When we are born do we not carry the Karma (Akaamika, Sanchita and Prarabdha) of the past lives. My question is, if everything is so very transitional and nothing attaches, why this suffering ? Is it not due to a very false notion that this is mine and he or she is mine. Is not the twins Raga and Dvesha responsible for all? It all appears so simple, but so very difficult to bring under constant Anubhava(experience)?

M.

You asked a pertinent question that when we come do we not bring in the ego with us. Do we bring the Ego?  No we only bring the samskāra with us and there is no ego in it, it is ego less for ego exists with the body Samskara is bodyless. So when the body finishes its role the ego finishes its role but samskara the role only starts after the finishing of the body. What we have received; what we have done and what we are doing all are nothing but part of the samskara but it does not have ego.

Even if a King dies he would have the same samskara as his servant or of a beggar but the ratio of the goodness or worthiness changes.

All the masters do spread the knowledge but who wants knowledge, people look at others only and say that knowledge is good but we donot need knowledge, people love to see a yogi, belly dancer or even visit prostitute but none will try to become one for once you try to become one the whole world of yours changes at different levels.

The future generations try to interpret the knowledge as per their needs and requirement and these may be transitional but truth shall remain one only. The knowledge that the masters received can be yours or of the world but then who wants the knowledge they want all to be spoon-fed with different version of the same truth but none wants the truth.

Due to variations in the truth the mask hides the true of the truth leading to the suffering and people believe this suffering to be the wish of the divine itself. Raga and dvesha(Attachment and Aversion) is like the day and night where the differences are lost when they merge.
