Guru: And there is another point about ego.
Tom: What is the point?
Guru: Suppose you are good in singing.
Tom: So, I am good in singing.
Guru: Is it egotistic to say you are good in singing?
Tom: Many people think it is.
Guru: So, what would they say?
Tom: They’ll be humble and say they are not good in singing.
Guru: But actually they are stating a falsehood.
Tom: So, they are telling a lie.
Guru: So, they think they are humble and non-egotistic but actually they become liars.
Tom: So, what should they say?
Guru: Just state the truth.
Tom: So, just say I am good in singing.
Tom: So you mean saying I am good at something is not egotistic?
Guru: Stating the truth is not egotistic.
Tom: So we can all say we are good?
Guru: Only when you are really good.
