Ego: True Ego vs. False Ego

                                                                  Q. Our BG discussion group has been rambling for lack of our ability to grapple with the meaning of 'ego'. All of us generally agree that spirituality is about surrendering the ego or getting rid of 'I consciousness'. But understanding it conceptually itself seems a challenge. We discussed 'I am not the body, I am the soul', and 'I am the eternal servant of the lord' aspects. We also cited the example of sage Valmiki - he must have lost consciousness of body altogether. We would appreciate hearing from you about this topic.
