  8. "When you do not know yourself and you try to know others, that is the state of the causal body. Ignorance, or Tamoguna, is its quality. It is also called Akash (the space from which the world appears). That which describes it is called the mind. That which thinks about it is called the intellect. To be proud of it is called 'ego,' or Ahankar."
