Dharma Talk: No-Self in Buddhism and Our Daily Lives @ PMT.1930~2130.Sat 31 Mar 2012

The teaching on “No-self”, anatta, is uniquely found in the Buddha’s teaching.  The Buddha discovered that in the midst of our lives, there is no “I” that exist.  But yet, our conventional language and our own experience says otherwise.  If there is no-self, then who is reading this very line?

The talk and sharing will focus on two aspects:

  1. What is “No-self” and how it is evident in our life.
  2. The impact or implication of this in our life.

In the discussion that ensues, we will also explore together how our usual “self-ful” mode of relating to people around us has shaped our lives so far.

This Dharma talk will require attendees to talk as well.  So come learn and share together. 🙂
