No self, no problem

When I talk about no-self, I don’t mean selflessness. Your selflessness still has a self. No self. All Buddhism practice is for cutting off yourself. When you practice Buddhism, practice putting everything down, including that selfless self. Don’t practice in a way that keeps affirming yourself.

Knowledge is for people who have problems. If you have no self, there are no problems. Then you don’t need to know.
