Your ego is alive and flourishing and is basking in its own nirvanic illusion.

The story goes some Tibetan monks did kill their ego

I found out myself the hard way, enlightening comes
with killing your ego first and then talk later with
your real Ego ( who knows all ). What a bliss to know
seperation is gone when uniting your Manas with the
light of your inside Buddha...
