I'm not sure if this is the right board to pose this question but here it is.
When you see with discernment,
'All phenomena are not-self' —
you grow disenchanted with stress.
This is the path
to purity. -- Dhp 279
There is also:
"'I am the owner of my actions, heir to my actions, born of my actions, related through my actions, and have my actions as my arbitrator. Whatever I do, for good or for evil, to that will I fall heir.' ... AN 5.57
"Now, what is impermanent, unsatisfactory, subject to change, is it proper to regard it as: 'This is mine, this I am, this is my self'?" -- SN 22.59
Now I know the last excerpt is specifically talking about the five aggregates of clinging. But one of those aggregates is mental formations. Kamma is directly related to mental formations. So it would seem to be saying that Kamma is (also) not self.
Yet AN 5.57 seems to imply that Kamma is self.
Can someone here give me some insight as to how these three excerpts relate to one another?
Thank you for your consideration of this question.
