‘It is not for everything to serve such a small thing.  There are many small things both in this world and in the realm of the Absolute.   These small things may either try to Lord it over one another, to co-operate with onen another in lording it over themselves or they may serve things that are greater than themselves.  In this world the small things pursue the first two methods.  This is ego-worship.  It is a very mean thing because the ego is so small.  These ego-worshippers are punished by being endowed with an abnormal vision which is incapable of perceiving any thing which is really greater than themselves’ – [Real And Apparent p.40, Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur]
