MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 28.17.

17. Pride :

Pride is a feeling of superiority over others. It is of nine kinds:

(i) physical pride (pride of possessing great physical strength),

(ii) intellectual pride (pride of great learning),

(iii) moral pride (pride of possessing great moral virtues),

(iv) psychic pride (pride of possessing great psychic powers or Siddhis),

(v) spiritual pride,

(vi) pride of noble birth,

(vii) pride of power, wealth and other possessions,

(viii) pride of being handsome and

(ix) Rajamada (pride of sovereignty).

All these varieties of pride should be completely overcome.

Get rid of pride through Viveka. Everything is Anitya. Why are you vainly puffed up with pride?

Arrogance is a form of pride. It is undue assumption of self-importance. It is claiming too much.

Swami Sivananda
