SELF



"The reason Buddhists emphasize the lack of an independent self is to help each one of us get past the narcissistic devotion we normally feel toward our body.

"Attachment to the self produces anger and greed, and keeps us bound firmly to ignorance."

Nirvana is when we no longer experience things in a 'selfish' manner.
