Healthy Development of One’s Self through Lam-rim

It is very important to examine the issue of the self, of “me,” in order to gain a better understanding of what reality is, as, according to the Buddhist teachings, the actual obstacle to achieving the goals of our graded lam-rim motivations is our unawareness of how we actually exist. We have either a correct or an incorrect consideration of both the superficial, surface truth about ourselves and the deepest truth of how we exist. Nevertheless, whether it’s a conventional “me” or a false “me,” both are imputations on something that represents “me.”
