I have made another attempt to explain the truth in simple English in Plain Truths blog. Some of the readers suggested me to provide some scriptural statements supporting these posts. So, I have written Yoga Vedanta blog that gives references to the words of Lord.

I am currently studying Yoga VaasishTa and make few posts to the blog on wordpress.

Evolution of Ego

EGO is the first veil around the simple universal truth. Let us see what all the other traps along with EGO.

1. As the identification is in possessions, one needs a better quality possessions - Attachment
2. Attachment derives into DESIRE
3. Unfulfilled DESIRE causes ANGER
4. ANGER causes ANXIETY
5. ANXIETY causes FORGETFULNESS
6. FORGETFULNESS causes 'INABILITY TO THINK'
7. Once the capability of thinking is lost - it causes destruction.

The above causation is described in the 'Bhagavad Gita'.

By being aware of this EGO one can avoid the fall of destruction.
