No Mind. No Ego. No Self.

Please see this clip from the film Little Buddha. Here, Mara represents the human mind, ego, or self, and Siddhartha is the Buddha or the awakened one.


Mara: You go where no one else will dare. Will you be my guard?

Siddhartha: Architect, finally I have met you. You will not rebuild your house again.

Mara: But I am your house. And you live in me.

Siddhartha: Oh lord of my own ego. You are pure illusion. You do not exist. The earth is my witness.
