Via Daily Dharma / September 29, 2016: The Patchwork Self

The defining teaching of the Buddhist tradition, that of non-self, is merely pointing out the limitations of this reflexive view we hold of ourselves. It’s not that the self does not exist, but that it is as cobbled-together and transient as everything else.

—Andrew Olendzki, "Self as Verb"
