Perfection

There is nothing is perfect. Nothing is perfect is meant by the teaching of selflessness. We think, you know, it is possible to attain or to get contact with something, yeah, to understand or to grasp something perfect. But to attain some stage of perfection according to Buddhism that is not possible. [laughs] It is not possible. When you understand that is not possible, that understanding is perfect understanding and that is [laughs] enlightenment.
