Self-illusion

Skepticism, and Attachment to mere Rule and Ritual.
But those disciples in whom these three fetters have vanished have “entered the Stream,” have forever escaped the states of woe, and are assured of final enlightenment. ( THE SOTAPAN, OR “STREAM-ENTERER” in http://www.sacred-texts.com/bud/buddha2.htm)

 

 

Sikhism The disciple who is unmindful of grief, Even when afflicted with grief;

Who is not attached to comfort and is free from fear;
To whom a lump of gold and clod of earth are the same,
Who talks evil of none, nor is elated by praise;
Free from greed, attachment, conceit,
Pleasure and pain, honour and dishonour,
Hope and fear, he desires nothing in the world;
He is no more affected by passion and anger,
On whom the Guru bestows His Grace,
He alone knoweth the way to this conduct,
Nanak, he becomes one with God,
As the water with water. Source

Confucianism The Master said, “If the scholar be not grave, he will not call forth any veneration, and his learning will not be solid. Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles. Have no friends not equal to yourself. When you have faults, do not fear to abandon them.” SOURCE : CONFUCIAN ANALECTS
