Neat little quotes from the Suttas that denounce a Self.

Postby Vajrahridaya » Mon Jun 13, 2011 4:31 am

Hi there,

I'm wondering if anyone can pull from the Suttas, neat little quotes that support the belief in Buddhism that there is no ultimate Self, or God of all.

I used to have a collection of quotes, but I don't know where I put it and I need a new collection for my reference.

Thanks scholar types for answering if you would?

I know there are other quotes from the Suttas though, so if anyone else knows of any direct quotes, that'd be great! There was one I kind of remember about there not being a self either individual, nor universal.

This? See this too...
(Sometimes I wish that the Agamas are also fully translated into vernacular languages from the Chinese, then we have alternatives and comparisons to the Pali Canon's Sutta Pitaka. Of course, if one knows Chinese, it would not be a problem at all.)
