The ego is the part of us that reincarnates...

''Questioner: The ego is the one which reincarnates?
Ramana: Yes. But what is reincarnation? The ego remains the same. New bodies appear and hold it. The ego does not change. It does not leave one body, seek and find another.
Just see what happens even to your gross body. Suppose you go to London. How do you do it? You take a conveyance, go to the docks, board the steamer and reach London in a few days. What has happened? The conveyances had moved, but not your body. Still you say that you travelled from one part of the globe to the other part. The movements of the conveyances have been superimposed on your body. Similarly also with your ego. The reincarnations are superimpositions.
For example, what happens in a dream? Do you go to the dream world or does it occur in you? Surely the latter. Just the same with incarnations. The ego remains changeless all along.
— Sri Ramana Maharshi, Talk 311''

Ron Alexander As long as we are in a body we need an ego as.a driver. If one manages to lose their ego, while still in the body, the we need a lot of sub. drivers, servants, nurses, maids, cooks, etc. A prison or a hospital or an ashram are the best places to be without one. One needs that supportive staff or to die and leave that body suit behind.

R.s. Mani Without ego, one will be a vegetable..

Ron Alexander I presume from this writing, that those who lose their ego while still alive do not reincarnate?

Pavel Yakovlev Progress is for the mind and not for the Self.
The Self is ever perfect.
– Ramana Maharshi

Pavel Yakovlev Reincarnation is a mental concept, one of many that humans like, and has no relation to what is...
