A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on enlightenment, supreme enlightened mind, bodhisattva, ego, personality, living beings, reincarnation, and suffering

A virtuous man or woman who is determined to develop the Supreme Enlightened Mind, should thus develop it: I have to lead all living beings to put a stop to (reincarnation) and escape (suffering), and when they have been so led, not one of them in fact stops (reincarnating) or escapes suffering. Why? Because, if a Bodhisattva believes in the notion of an ego, a personality, or a living being, he is not a true Bodhisattva.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)
