Meaning of ANATMAN/ANATTA in English


The Buddhist notion that there is no eternal soul, unlike in Hinduism. Instead, each living person is an association of five skandas , which fly apart at death. Linguistically, "atta" is Pali for "atman" while "an" is the negative. The term literally means "no soul."
