The Self in Vedanta and Its Buddhist Critique

“A formative voice sinks back into mind; mind sinks back into vital breath; vital breath to radiance; and radiance to the higher divinity. This is the soul; the Self of all that exists; this is the Real Self; You Are That…” – Chandogya Upanishad IV.8

“How transient are all component things! It is their nature to arise and fall. As soon as they have been formed, they start to decay again … [so] tend to your state of mind with diligence.” – The Buddha’s Final Nirvana VI.7
