Freedom from Egohood

Book coverThe dictators of the world are egomaniacal people, obviously. But more ordinary people also function in that way, including ourselves. We would like to possess our world, and so we act in such a way that whatever we see around us is completely in order, according to our desire to maintain the security of “me,” “myself”—which is egohood. Inspired by means of discipline, meditation, and discriminating awareness, we have freedom from egomaniac-ness, freedom from egohood.

From The Heart of the Buddha: Entering the Tibetan Buddhist Path by Chögyam Trungpa, page 4

    we bengalis have won pretty much every award in the world stage you name it we have it and we are damn proud of what we have 🙂

    its the only country in the world which took rebellion because it couldn’t speak its mother tongue and it won! and won so hard that the UN had to adopt that day as the international language day, which celebrates languages from all over the world.
