Practical Exercises

Try to remember a past instance where you displayed arrogance or pride. What was the basis for your arrogance?

Now answer these questions:

1. Was the arrogance based on something you achieved all by yourself, or were there contributing factors? Did you have help from family members, friends, the government, conducive or lucky circumstances?
2. If you had help, is your arrogance or pride really justified if you cannot claim total ownership for your achievements?
3. Are you convinced that Anahankara is a value you would like to develop within yourself?
