The Self

                                           "Who thinks the Self may kill, who thinks the Self
                                            Itself be killed, has missed the mark of truth.
                                            Self is not born, nor does it ever die:
                                            It does not come to life, not having been,
                                            Nor, having been, does it thereafter cease.
                                            Eternal, ancient, ever-present Self,
                                            Though bodies are cut down, lives on intact."
                                                 (Bhagavad Gita, 11, 19-20)
                                            "For my part, when I enter most intimately into what I
                                             call 'myself', I always stumble on some particular per-
                                             ception or other, of heat or cold, light or shade, love
                                             or hatred, pain or pleasure.  I never catch 'myself' at
                                             any time without a perception, and never can observe
                                             anything but the perception."
