A state of being characterized by persistent delusions re: being relative to other beings. (See also, conceit. Compare, avidya.)

You seem to be quite proud of your lack of pride Dark Knight.

Pride is a manifestation of craving and clinging to fabricated concepts, i.e., the fundamental causes of dukkha. Pride arises when we become attached to our own perceived qualities, accomplishments, or possessions and believe that they make us superior to others. This attachment creates a false sense of self, through the process of dependent origination (paticcasammupāda), and leads to a desire to maintain or enhance this false sense of self through comparing ourselves to others, boasting, or seeking recognition and validation. Ultimately, the things we believe we own and control, including treasured components of our self-view, are fleeting, contingent, void, and serve as obstacles to seeing things as they truly are (yathā-bhūta-ñāṇa-dassana) and thus limit our capacity for further detachment from our delusions (virāga) and achieving freedom (vimutti).

I'm proud of the fact that I took a poopy this morning and wiped my bottom. All By Myself.
