To study the self is to forget the self

Larry Rosenberg, co-founder of the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center on the Challenge of Change:

Dogen the Japanese Zen Master put it beautifully. To study the Buddha dharma is to study the self. To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be awakened by all things. It means the mind is … no longer preoccupied with itself.
