Elephant sees his form mirrored in the lake, looks at it, and then goes away, taking it for the real body of another elephant…wiser than the man who beholds his face in the stream, and looking at it, says, “Here am I…I am I”
The “I,” his Self, is not in the world of the twelve Nidânas and mutability, but in that of Non-Being, the only world beyond the snares of Mâyâ.

The Universe of Nam-Kha says: “I am the world of Sien-Chan”; the four illusions laugh and reply, “Verily so.”
