An Account of the Buddha part 8 – extract from The Hallowed Book of Man


Yet you love self and will not abandon self-love. So be it; but then, verily, you should learn to distinguish between the false self and the true self. The ego, with all its egotism, is the false self. It is an unreal illusion and a perishable combination. He only who identifies his self with the truth will attain nirvana; and he who has entered nirvana has attained Buddhahood; he has acquired the highest good; he has become eternal and immortal.
