The being who does an action is anatta. When he experiences the results, he is still anatta. Right now when you decide to put your hand in the fire, you are anatta. When the fire burns your hand and you experience the pain, you are still anatta.

Hello mahaviro,

For a start in considering your question - Scroll down to:

Thank you for your prompt response. I read it already.
I have become a monk in Thailand for 6 years. I want to learn Dhamma more and more.
Best wishes,

In SN 12.17, the wanderer Kassapa asked the Buddha a similar question..
