Self

So, if everything is changing, how about yourself? You know, self is also changing. If so, even though Buddha says self, there's no such substantial being as self. As we learned last night, typically we call our function of mind and body self. But there is no such thing as self. So we emphasize as long as everything changes, self cannot be exception. -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-06-28 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC
