“The true value of a human being can be found in the degree to which he has attained liberation from the self.” ~ Albert Einstein
A human being is part of the whole, called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thought and feeling as something separtated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
