Description in English: 
In today’s morning satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) expounds on the nature of annyakara. Mamakara is how one perceives oneself; ahamkara is how others perceive one; annyakara describes what others expect from one, based on one’s self-expression. It is the obligation of every human being to extend himself to meet the expectations of all he encounters and to willingly take up the responsibility of fulfilling those expectations. Always meeting the peak of one’s possibility in life completes the annyakara. It is best to take up this assignment voluntarily, because even if it is refused, life will force it upon each individual, so there is no escape! The work will be accomplished whether willingly or in resistance; and resistance brings suffering rather than the satisfaction of a job well done.
