“Sakkaya ditthi is the false belief that the consequent pleasure from having raga can be meaningful in some way.”

 

  • To be more precise Sakkaya ditthi is the belief in personality. It can take two forms: Sassatta ditthi the belief in an eternal self that will end in a higher or lower realm forever. Present in most religions. The other is uccheda ditthi the belief in a self that is annihilated at death. Sakkaya ditthi can take many forms.
