Question: What is humility?
Answer: Humility is manifested in different ways at various stages of
one’s development. For instance, humility of shudra is obedience. Humility of vaishya
and kshatriya is to stay away from unneeded conflicts, not to give way to anger,
and if a battle is lost — to be able to accept one’s own destiny. For a brahman
humility is renunciation of the personal desires (except essential needs of the
body), that is surrender to God’s will and non-attachment to the fruits of one’s
own actions and to the action itself. In a great detail this subject is covered
in the Bhagavad Gita.
