Selves & Not-Self, Part III
2010-03-18 Selves & Not-Self, Part III 39:37
Thanissaro Bhikkhu
One in a series of 3 talks: The Buddha viewed perceptions of self and not-self as a form of karma, or action. Thus the question is not, “Do I have a self?” or “What is my true self?” Instead, it is “When is it skillful to perceive a self, and when is it more skillful to perceive not-self?” This series of three talks will explore this last question. Part III explores the function of the perception of not-self as a means to true happiness.
