Bhagavad Gita Teachings On Egoism

Teachings from Bhagavad Gita on Egoism

All actions are performed, in all cases, merely by the Gunas (Qualities-in-Nature). He, whose mind is deluded by egoism, thinks "I am the doer. (3.27)

He who hates no creature, who is friendly and compassionate to all, who is free from attachment and egoism, balanced in pleasure and pain, and forgiving… Ever content, steady in meditation, self-controlled, possessed of firm conviction, with mind and intellect dedicated to Me, he, My devotee, is dear to me. (12.13 – 14)

Indifference to the objects of the sense, and also absence of egoism is knowledge (13.9)

Given to egoism, power, haughtiness, lust and anger, these malicious people hate Me in their own bodies, and in those of others. (16.18)

Having abandoned egoism, power, arrogance, desire, anger and aggrandisement, and freed from the notion of 'mine, ' and so peaceful --- he is fit to become Brahman. (18.53)
