Removing the conceit of Ego - Part 2 of 5


Right now we are talking about the commonly understood ‘egotism’ (‘aham-bhAvaM’, in Tamil).

Usually the technical shAstra literature does not make a distinction between ahamkAraM and this aham-bhAvaM’.

I am making the distinction for clarity.

Egoism is the name given to the ego’s thought of ‘I’ and egotism is the name given to the conceit and vanity of a swelled head.
