We do lot of things everyday varying from worship to routine activities, do you think proud display of any of these amounts to sin?

Thanks manatita, that sense of 'i' is the main thing in differentiating between pride and a selfless action, how do you do that?
It's needed in the beginning, but diminishes as we progress. Sadhana is paramount to enable us to leave the ego-mind; enter into the Heart. Selfless actions are inspired by the Heart, and for this, the inner Light has to be awakened.
What's is this Sadhana all about?
Worship.(Spiritual Practices) (Ibadu/ Salat) Life itself is an act of worship. Simply sit in Silence in the small hours of the morning and night. Let what ever you receive guide your days on the street; on buses; trains; at work; on the way home ...
You mean the process (Sadhana) is a source to receive guidance, it means the process must have all the prerequisites required, if yes what's that?
Ha ha. We started with a harmless question. But I like where we are going. My Mentor once said that Meditation is the answer to ALL life's questions.
My answer to you is 'hunger.' We call this Aspiration, and inner cry or longing. Cry as D child
Good insight Brandon. Thanks.
Eric I really appreciate the way you think. Excellent way of looking at the overall attitude. Yes, proud is something that praises the self & degrades others. If not this sort of a pride then it's a desirable, one should try his best to look good
That is what I am saying that is not pride that praises self and degrades others -- that is vanity. It is a false religion of praise for oneself. Kind of like making one's self a false idol. Pride is like pleased, glad and happy.
Very true Eric, thank you.
