429. Swami Sivananda
"The beginning of saintliness is killing of egoism. A Vedantic student who does not combine Bhakti develops egoism and so he gets a downfall. He whose ego is dead. He and he alone is reborn in the life, that is immortal, endless, full of bliss. It is life in the eternal, fearless Brahman. The Jnani feels he is not the actor as he has no egoism and so he is not bound. An Ajnani feels he is the doer and so he is bound. Kill egoism. You will become the king of kings. Extinguish the Ego. Now God will dwell in your heart."
