MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 17-4.2.
Chapter -17. Avidya And Ahankara-4.
4. How To Eradicate Ahankara-2.
Ahankara is like a thread.
It connects or links all the Indriyas on itself.
When the thread is broken, all the pearls fall down.
Even so, when the thread of Ahankara is broken by 'Aham Brahma Asmi' Bhavana or Sakshi Bhava or self-surrender method by taking the Nimitta Bhava (instrument-in-the-hands-of-the-Lord attitude),
all the Indriyas will be broken down or destroyed. The connection with Indriyas will be severed.
Even if you identify yourself with a subtle body inside,
it will help you in your Self-realisation.
It is only the identification with the fleshy physical body that brings all sorts of troubles through gross Ahankara and 'mineness'.
The physical 'I' is a very great menace.
