No Self

No self - July 3, 2010
The poem "Fellows!" by Bhuddadas Inthapanyo
The poem reads:
Fellows, "self" has no existence, [not a thing to hold or take serious]
but in the loss of consciousness "self" appears
by consciousness "self" disappears,
without "self" is good,
Fellow! Uproot your "self"
and uproot others' selves fully
Let it be only wisdom and kindness
Be no self of you and self of others at all
                                    Bhuddadas Inthapanyo
[This is a teaching to remind people to adhere to peace and good action by cutting one's feeling about what belongs to themselves or their emotional possessions.]
