6-17-2012 – non-self

Sam brought a talk by John Peacock on anatta, often translated non-self, which cast a backward glance toward the five aggregates, exploring how none of them constitute a self, and how clinging to identification with any of them leads to distress.  Peackock’s talk, given on July 6, 2011, is the second of three relating to Papanca, random mental proliferations, and is titled “Papanca Part Two:  The Tyranny of the Self,” and can be found on dharmaseed.com.
