What is self-awareness?

Question: What does it mean to be self-aware?

Acharya Prashant: What does it mean to be self-aware? For this, we have to go first into self-knowledge. Knowledge of the ‘self’ and awareness of the ‘self.’ We will have to take these two together. What is ‘self?’ Simple, the ‘self’ that which we call as ‘me,’ ‘I.’
