“When the ego directs the mind, it binds us to materiality and to a life in bondage. When the ego is fought and shackled, it helps the mind to become unbound and be free. He who is controlled by his ego becomes a slave (to his desire and attachments). He who strives to become egoless, begins to control the mind and thereby becomes the master of his destiny!”
-Dato’ Vijay Eswaran
