Chan Master Sheng Yen

‘I emphasize that prajna is wisdom, and wisdom is the attitude of no self. This means not having an attitude that is based on a self-centered perspective. Please do not misunderstand that this attitude of no self means that there is nothing out there. The self of wisdom is there to solve problems; the self of compassion is there to benefit people.  One applies both the self of wisdom and the self of compassion to develop and cultivate a self that is pure and happy.’
