    But that's psychology's definition. Buddhist definition portrays ego as the false self.

    I've seen ego as the spiritual blindfold that drives us to need physical eyes to see and physical brain in order to think. But I've been outside of these.

    Great answer. But beyond getting rid of pride, try humility in every aspect of your life. Give with unconditional generosity, but also anonymously. Help in a way that the other person feels no burden of debt

    Ego is duality -- all dichotomy. Ego is both perpetrator and victim, but not necessarily at the same time. Ego craves to be right and hurts when it is wrong.

    Ego is spiritual blindness.

    Could that be a trick of ego?

    When I've been without ego, I had no problem moving ahead. There was no need or selfish hunger, but also no impediment or lack of drive.

    Ego is the lie. It is the blindfold over our spiritual eyes.

    Sorry to use you. Why is this becoming a argument fest. "It means this, it means that". Obviously you's have no knowledge on it so stop.. Many Buddhists get rid of the ego, it's their main goal. All a ego is, is strive/selfishness/stubbornness etc.
