No Ego


Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche 


Quote of the Week
May 20, 2011 


No Ego

Because fixation on a self is the root of samsara
As well as the root of karma and mental afflictions,
And since fixation on a self is the root of all suffering,
Its opposite, selflessness, must be ascertained.


Because the observed objects of self-fixation are devoid of inherent nature,
Because the mind of self-fixation is also devoid of nature

And because the self of past and future lives is like a water moon,
Certainty in selflessness, the true nature, must be stabilized.
