Humility (Vinaya) is a deceptively cloaked virtue that when present gives one true greatness while eliminating the perils of pride and arrogance. At its core, humility is the fundamental respect towards all living beings, and the acknowledgment that in our essence we are all divine beings with the inherent capacity for greatness. Practicing humility dispels our egoic mind, purifies our soul and produces true knowledge and wisdom.
