A: See if it has come about. Q: One has to sublimate the ego-self into the true Self. A: The ego-self does not exist at all. Q: Why does it give us trouble? A: To whom is the trouble? The trouble also is imagined. Trouble and pleasure are only for the ego. Q: Why is the world so wrapped up in ignorance? A: Take care of yourself. Let the world take care of itself. See your Self.

It is something like a man being at Ramanasramam asking how many ways there are to reach Ramanasramam and which is the best way for him. 7 Q: What is the ego-self? How is it related to the real Self?
