In Buddhism and most faiths, humility – feeling that we all share common
ground, feeling neither superior or inferior to others – is both a prerequisite
to awakening and an expression of mature spirituality. This talk explores
how our conditioning and culture reinforce a swing from ego-inflation (self-
importance, feeling special, better than others) to ego-deflation (feeling

unworthy). We then look at how a wise and kind attention opens us to who
we are beyond these confining egoic states, and enables us to live with
humility and grace.
