What happens to the ego, after the body dies?
Ramana Maharishi: EGO is the ‘I’ thought. In its subtle form, it remains a thought, whereas, in its gross aspect, it embraces the mind, senses, and body. They disappear in deep sleep but still, the Self remains. It will be the same in death. Ego is not an entity, independent of the Self, in order that it might be created or destroyed by itself. It functions as an instrument of the Self and periodically ceases to function, i.e. it appears and disappears as birth and death.
May the Almighty, working through Lord Krishna and Arjuna, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you and remove your troubles.
With Love and Blessings to you. Humbly,
