Letting go of self is Buddha.
I might also add letting go of non-self. :112:
You're not adding much.

A monk asked Master Zhao Zhou, "Does a dog have Buddha Nature?"
Zhao Zhou replied, "Yes."

And then the monk said, "Since it has, how did it get into that bag of skin?"

Zhao Zhou said, "Because knowingly, he purposefully offends."
