Consideration

When young, rejoice in the tranquility of the old.

However great your glory, be patient and considerate.

Boast not of what you know, even when learned.

However high you may rise, be not proud.

—Arya Nagarjuna, The Staff of Wisdom

    Ego is root of most of our suffering.We are told to subdue ego but however,we try, we are not able to get rid of it totally.We may succeed partly and subdue some of our ego habits -but still remain in ego clutch to the varying extent.Most of our karma may be blamed to our ego,past or present.I wonder why the human is born with ego-what is the neccessity of ego being the part of human-when most of time,ego merely adds up the pain to the life.

      The ego has a function: the preservation of the physical integrity of an embodied sentient being. Problems arise when we identify with it and expand its field of activity beyond this very limited scope.
