2 Narendra whom I look upto ....
there is this thin line between being arrogant -- n -- having ' self pride ' or confidence in ones own self.
i learnt to walk that difficult line from papa . b confident but never be proud. .....to have self pride is healthy. don't let any one stop you from ' smiling ' or admiring flowers or singing when you are joyful.
My memories of him are my lessons by which I learn, every day so I do not forget them but cherish them & remember them often -- -- to learn some thing new, every day.== every time.
he was that rare specimen of almost perfect human being who by just being himself brought me closer to the divine energy whom we call --- GOD !
surely, every one is given some freedom --- to have handicaps ----

TIES to Ego are given up when one realises that I'm part of the Whole.
the thought that,
I'm part of something beyond & much bigger then what I' see or percieve with these senses.
The first realisation of this leads to Q.s that US human beings have asked since centuries --
Who am I ? Am I this Body ? Or Am I a Soul ?
From where have I come ?
What is the Source ?
Am I part of this source ?
Or is it beyond me ?
Only an Enlightened MASTER will show you the Light.
That we are part of the DIVINE.
We are but made up of STARS !
[ said the scientist Carl Sagan ]
