Reflections on Anattā ('Not-Self') - Ajahn Dhammasiha

Description

The only possible foundation for the delusion of Self, me and mine is the five groups of clinging ('pañcupādānakkhandhā'):

  1. Form (Rūpaṃ)
  2. Feeling (Vedanā)
  3. Perception (Saññā)
  4. Intention/volition (Sankhārā)
  5. Consciousness (Viññāṇa)

If we contemplate these five as not me, not mine and not Self, we undermine and weaken the delusion. Once we can clearly see with proper wisdom as it truly is that they are not me, not mine and not Self, the delusion will be abandoned, and the heart is freed in the experience of Nibbāna.
