The Problem with Self
Wherever there is self, there's a sense of other too;
With self and other, anger and attachment follow too.
And, through complete involvement in everything like this,
All the problematic states in all their guises manifest.
Verse from the Commentary on Valid Cognition (Pramanavartika) by Dharmakirti.
