Ramana Maharshi : best way of killing the Ego

Question : What is the best way of killing the ego?
Ramana Maharshi : To each person that way is the best which appears easiest or appeals most. All the ways are equally good, as they lead to the same goal, which is the merging of the ego in the Self. What the bhakta [devotee] calls surrender, the man who does vichara calls jnana. Both are trying only to take the ego back to the source from which it sprang and make it merge there.
