Ego detachment does not reduce our self-awareness, but expands it beyond measure. This state of awareness cannot be achieved through ritual alone, but by subtle attunement to the inner flows of energy, attunement to the Guru's grace, and relaxing away from our attachments and wrong thinking. The guru acts without karma, as he is without ego bondage. Thus, the Guru's karma goes to his disciples, helping hurry them towards their divine end. All ceremonies are symbols of this ego transcendence, and though they possess no magic power, they offer us a channel to attune ourselves more deeply to the subtle realities of life.
