Excerpted from the Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna p.148
The Master Said:
"If one analyses oneself, one doesn't find any such thing as 'I'.
Take an onion, for instance. First of all you peel off the red
outer skin; then you find thick white skins. Peel these
off one after the other, and you won't find anything inside.
In that state a man no longer finds the existence of his ego.
And who is there left to seek it?"
