' Realization '
DOES ANY KIND OF SELF EXIST AFTER ENLIGHTENMENT ?
In order to have the continuity of something, you have to have somebody constantly watching this continuity happening. If you have ego continuing, you also have to have the observer observing that ego is continuing. This is because the whole thing is based on a mirage. If there's no watched, there's no mirage. If there's a watcher to acknowledge that the mirage exists, there will be a mirage. After Enlightenment, there's no watched anymore; therefore the watcher's object does not exist anymore.
