Monk: “I have achieved an incredible level of detachment from myself—so much so that I only think of others, and never of myself.”
Nasruddin: “Well, I have reached a more advanced state than that.”
Monk: “How so?”
Nasruddin: “I am so objective that I can actually look at another person as if he were me, and by doing so, I can think of myself!“


One can never leave one's own Self. If you really love others then Nasruddin's is the way. One should be this way utmost selfish like Nasruddin here, the days of teachings of selflessness are gone. Utmost selfishness is the best selflessness.
