To understand what the Ego is, let’s refer to Chapter 18:14 of the Bhagavad Gita, in which Krsna explains to Arjuna the five factors needed for success:
From Chapter 18 Verse 14: Bhagavad Gita
adhishthanam tatha karta karanam cha prithag-vidham
vividhash cha prithak cheshta daivam chaivatra panchamam
O mighty-armed Arjuna, learn from Me of the five factors which bring about the accomplishment of all action.
These are declared in sankhya philosophy to be the place of action, the performer, the senses, the endeavor, and ultimately the Supersoul.
