Reply To: Infinity & the rebirth process


I grew up in a Hindu family and had absolute faith in the basic teachings but had a problem with
some technicalities about the ultimate goal.
I got exposed to the teaching of the Buddha after attending a vipassana course. I started investigating the teachings and have developed a lot of faith in it, and have come to the conclusion that the Buddha’s teachings are very scientific and one can experience the results immediately on putting it into practice.
I am happy with my progress in following the 8 fold noble path, but in the back of my mind there is always one question, which I have put on the back burner and have not paid much attention.
The common understanding is that the Buddha said that there is no self, but the question is
what gets liberated? I can very clearly understand that we are not the body or the mind and
all the problems are due to our misidentification, but what are we and what part of us is
seeking nirvana?
I hope I will find a satisfying answer on this forum and want to thank the participants in advance.
