The five skhanda. Or the attachment to or identification of the five skhanda as self.Red Lotus wrote:-What definition have you got of "the ego"? (As a concept and abstract idea of a very real thing).
I thought that I had reached non-identification with my ego until I realised that "I" had reached it! But seriously. Non-identification with the ego is not so difficult, all one has to do is realise that this self is just the agglomeration of the five skhanda and lacks any real, solid, substantial core. It is that simple.-Have you got to the point of non-identification with your own ego?
