Who is the doer? A story from the Mahabharata

When we constantly engage in activities, getting the feeling of “I am the one doing” is inevitable. Just as an industrial process has 2 outputs: the finished product and the waste, every action we do has 2 outputs: the result and the waste in the form of ahamkara mala. While Ahamkara is an extremely practical thing and brings a sense of involvement, it can be a huge barrier in moksha. Our tradition always encourage us to say “Naham Kartha, Hari Kartha hi Kevalam” and dedicate all our actions to divine.
