Reply To: Compilation of my thoughts


Sakkaya ditthi can also be analyzed as “sa + kaya” or “my + kaya.”

  • But it is neither mine nor someone else’s. It arises due to causes and conditions (Paticca Samuppada.)
  • Many suttas explain that “this body is not yours; not someone else’s either.” It is a “hetu/phala.”

    See, for example, “Natumha Sutta (SN 12.37).”
