The Seer According to Patanjali

Asmita is one of the Kleshas.  In Sutra 2.6 Patanjali describes what Ego is: “I-am-ness (asmita) is as it were the unification of the powers of the ‘Seer’ and ‘seeing’.”  In this video we also discuss the necessity of the ego for living in this world but remaining unattached to the identities of Asmita.
