according to buddhism/hinduism, that all depends upon your karma, or your 'destiny'. basically.

Relying on self -- which, if defined as the individual effort -- I believe is the true way, based upon the experience of Gautama Buddha. But it conflicts with the (now) ubiquitous recommendation that a teacher is necessary.

As pedestrian as this question may seem: is the self, in this incarnation, enough to realize true nature?
