Ego Destroyed By Grace Of God !

Devotee— Sir, why are we bound like this? Why can’t we see the Lord?

Sri Ramakrishna — The very ego of man is maya. This egotism has veiled everything. ‘All troubles cease when the I-ness dies.’ If by the grace of the Lord a man realizes, ‘I am not the doer,’ he becomes a jivanmukta(Liberated in this very life). He has nothing to fear then.

The maya or the I-ness is like a cloud. The sun becomes invisible even if there is a patch of cloud. As soon as the cloud passes away, one can see the sun. If by the grace of the God the feeling of I-ness vanishes, one realizes the Lord.
