A Quote by Chandrakirti on self, attachment, clinging, compassion, and buddhism

First we conceive the "I" and grasp onto it.
Then we conceive the "mine" and clink to the material world.
Like water trapped on the water wheel, we spin in circles, powerless.
I praise the compassion that embraces all beings.

Chandrakirti
