Difference Between Pride & Confidence
17th Gyalwang Karmappa
He tells that in order to become Buddha, accomplish the state of Buddhahood and bring ourselves happiness then there is no difference between Buddha and sanctioned beings. In terms of quality, material and benefits they all are same. He also discusses that people generally have a problem in differentiating the two terms i.e. pride and confidence. Confidence is something that we must have but pride is supposed to be eliminated.
