Truth

Lose attachment to self

To attain nirvana, lose attachment to the false image of self.  Losing this attachment is freedom, freedom from fear;  with fear removed, peace and joy blossom.

“True self is non-self, the awareness that the self is made only of non-self elements. There’s no separation between self and other, and everything is interconnected. Once you are aware of that you are no longer caught in the idea that you are a separate entity.”
–Thay

Losing the attachment to false self is a main step towards enlightenment.
