No-self?

Postby nrose619 » Sat Dec 08, 2012 12:26 am

What is the meaning of no-self in Buddhism? Is it the idea that instead of independent beings, there is a collaborative "we" in all life forms? or is it a more nihilistic view that the self is not real and that nothing is real?

Much Love,
Nick

the lake's surface does not try
to hold on to the image of the bird."
