Perfect elimination of Ego エゴの完全滅却

"The ego-self does not exist at all!" Ramana Maharshi

"I was free from the IDEA of an ego-entity, a personality, a being, and a separated individuality." THE BUDDHA: Diamond Sutra, XIV.

I understand that both Ramana Maharshi and Buddha reached the same Nirvana. Methods are different but the goal is the same. Realizing altruistic and interdependent self is the solution to free from Ego (self-centered and independent self).

Now I am convinced that Ego can be entirely eliminated. But survival instincts should not be included in Ego. Survival instincts must be allowed as the right to life.

“Enlightenment, for a wave in the ocean, is the moment the wave realizes it is water. When we realize we are not separate, but a part of the huge ocean of everything, we become enlightened. We realize this through practice, and we remain awake and aware of this through more practice.” —Thich Nhat Hanh

「エゴ(利己)の自我は全く存在しません!」 ラマナ·マハリシ

「私は、エゴの独立体、人格、生命、別格の個性という考えから解放されました。」 仏陀:ダイヤモンドスートラXIV



「大海の波にとっての悟りとは、波が自らを水であると実感した瞬間です。自分は別格ではなく、全てである巨大な大海の一部分でしかないと実感した時、私たちは悟りを開きます。私たちは修行を通してこのことを実感し、更に修行を積むことを通して継続的に目覚め、それに気付きます。」 - ティック・ニャット・ハン
