Egotheism is deification of the self, or the view that the idea of God is nothing more than a conception of the self. LaVeyan Satanism teaches self-deification.

Indian religionsEdit

Identification of the atman (self) with Brahman is a tenet of some sects of Hinduism.

In Jainism, one who extinguishes all of their karmas becomes a tirthankara with godlike knowledge and powers.
