Ahankar (also called ego or vanity) is a natural characteristic of the human mind. There is nothing wrong with having it, because it remains in everyone’s mind up until God realization. The only way to overcome it is first of all by acknowledging that you have it – you are already doing this. Just be aware how it affects you. This will develop humbleness. The second thing to do is keep doing sadhana. Only by doing sadhana can we purify our mind, and as the mind purifies, the vanity is gradually suppressed and more humbleness is developed. The gist is that there is no easy way or short cut. We simply have to keep practicing devotion and gradually the ahankar will be reduced.
