The conception of “I” ~ Nagarjuna

Just as it is known
That an image of one’s face is seen
Depending on a mirror
But does not really exist as a face,
So the conception of “I” exists
Dependent on mind and body,
But like the image of a face
The “I” does not at all exist as its own reality.


Nagarjuna

Ratnavali, 31-32
