Hello there, I'm looking for a way to restate or summarize the concept of anatta in Pali, just in a simple phrase. Is there a possible way to say something along the lines of "I am free from self," "There is no I," or "This is not me?" Almost like a bumper-sticker phrase to sum up what anatta means without using the term to define itself, you know?
Any help would be appreciated!
Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.
Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.
His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
