The Root Cause of Suffering is Not Attachment But Ignorance.

It is not attachment that is the cause of all suffering in the world; it is ignorance that is the cause of suffering in the world*. It is the ignorance of knowing that the world is self and that self appears differentiated to itself so not to be by itself and this for the singular purpose of self-companionship, self-friendship, self-love. Knowing this is salvation. Knowing this is bliss. For indeed; the purpose of self - the meaning of life - is nothing else but love; sweet indelible love. (* self)
