Supression of One's Ego is the Real Skill

When man fails to use his attainments for the welfare of others, he becomes a Narakasura, hellish demon.  But, when in a competitive race for individual glory, he spends billions on getting to the moon and bringing rocks from its crust, instead of feeding millions who starve down below and promoting the prosperity of backward nations, he is only condemning himself.  Even the best of things can be misused by men.  Ravana, Sisupala, Kamsa, and other demonish persons mentioned in the Indian puranas and epics had vast scholarship, enormous economic and military power, and even immense yogic and occult skills won by years of austerity and disciplined living. But, they could not earn one skill, the skill to suppress the ego, and so they became so obstinate, to obstructive and too dangerous to be allowed to live and prosper.  The lesson taught by the careers of Naraka and of Bali is that man should be master of his ego if he is to succeed in the art of successful living.

- Baba -


O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
