If there’s any single part of Buddhism that baffles people it’s the concept of “No-self”, the belief that existentially we have no separate, permanent, identifiable self. Ask yourself this, “who is that person looking out into the world from behind those eyes?”
We just watched a program on NOVA about that enigmatic number — Zero — and how the idea of a symbol to represent “nothing” arose out of the Hindu and Buddhist philosophies of “nothingness,” as in emptying the self. And then your post arrived today. Coincidence?
