Ego, Mind, and Desire


“The three Great Siddhas have represented to mankind

 the three principal dharmas 

as they have been understood to this time. 

Jesus represented the dharma of the sacrifice of self,

 Krishna the dharma of the sacrifice of mind,

 and Gautama the dharma of the sacrifice of desire. 

Separated self (or ego), limited mind, and limiting desire are 

the three principal conditions of suffering or contraction in man. 

Thus, the three principal dharmas that have been known among men 

have been attempts to undo these forms of contraction

 through the deliberate or motivated sacrifice of these three: 

ego, mind, and desire.”
