SengKiat :”For this question, the meaning of attā and anattā is clearly incorrect in the sense of “self” or “not self” but should be “in-control” or “not in-control“.”
I’m acquainted with the meaning of “self” and “not self” as per puredhamma: “Self”: “in-control” as you said (or the opposite of helpless).
“Not-self”: helplessness.
Which brings us back to “gandhabba” and “gathi” that is to say, to what we call nowadays a specific (but evolving) “psychological entity” susceptible of improvement – according pure dhamma path – dwelling in a specific (but transient) body.
