EGO:: The most extensively used & abused word in English – as it is open to wild & varied interpretation.
Sanskrit resolves this problem with aplomb!
1. Aham Bhavam = Simple beingness! Awareness that one exists – which is essential for all lively actions.
2. Aham Karam = Jovially – “adding spice” to Aham. This is the opinion on self – far far higher than past demonstrated – or demonstrable now, or in future! In short it is “Arrogance”.
I am less than none = Mai Kisise Kam Nahee = Confidence!
There is none like me = Mera Jaisa Koi Nahee = Arrogance!
