Self defined: me or I; Selfishness defined: devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one’s own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others.

 

Christianity

At the root of every problem is selfishness. JAMES 3:16

Sikhism [1] O my mind, the family members, friends and brothers, Whom we see around us meet us for selfish motives; The day when their self-interests is not served, They will desert you. – Guru IV, Gond Rag

[2] Everyone is engrossed in his own gain,
None sacrifices himself for the sake of others,
Nanak, do not contract company with such men,
Who think only of their own gains. – Guru V, Gauri Rag

Sikhism Give up your selfishness, and you shall find peace; like water mingling with water, you shall merge in absorption. Sri Guru Granth Sahib
