Beyond Self-Improvement

If one sees the Buddhadharma [Buddha’s teachings]
merely as a self-improvement method,
one misses its ultimate purpose —
for self-perfection, for realising selflessness.

  • But i guess the initial stage when we practice Buddha’s teachings, we can really only see it as a self-improvement method since we have a long way to improve before we can reach the stage of self-perfection and selflessness. But I believe that with continuous practice of Buddha’s teaching, both self-perfection and selflessness will come naturally. However, I guess when we finally really reach that stage, we won’t feel that we are perfect and selfless…otherwise, it will mean that the sense of “self” is still there.
