Our head vs universe


I was reading the (though read several times in past) popular story of Vamana (one of the incarnation of Vishnu) seeking three steps from King Mahabali. In one step, Vamana covered the universe. Second step he covered heavens. Mahabali offered his head for third step.

I realised few things from this story.

  • I can give up anything and everything, but till I have not given up “my head” (EGO) I have not given up.
  • EGO is bigger than anything known in the universe and life.
  • When I decide to surrender my EGO, I would be celebrated. Mahabali is celebrated every year in Kerala as part of ONAM festival.
