Self Observation

  • Hindu – Bhagavadgita 3:39
Enveloped is wisdom, O son of Kunti,
by this insatiable fire of desire,
which is the constant foe of the wise.
The senses, the mind and the intelligence are said to be its seat.
Veiling wisdom by these,
it deludes the embodied soul.
  • Buddhist – Sutra Spoken by the Sixth Patriarch
May we, disciples be always free from the taint of ignorance and delusion.
We repent of all our past, present and future sins and evil deeds committed under delusion or in ignorance.
May their karma be expiated at once and may they never rise again.
May we, disciples be always free from the taint of arrogance and dishonesty.
We repent of all our past, present and future evil deeds done in arrogant or dishonest spirit.
May their karma be expiated at once and may they never rise again.
May we disciples be always free from taint of envy and jealousy.
We repent of all our past, present and future evil deeds done in an envious or jealous spirit.
May their karma be expiated at once and may they never rise again.
  • Zoroastrian – The Avestic Creation
The fourth of the good kingdoms which I, Ahura Mazda, created was the Ahura of Wisdom.
Thereupon came Angra Mainyu, who is all death, and he counter-created the deva of ignorance.
  • Jewish – Isaiah 42:18
Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye,
but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Will ye not understand?
