The Buddha never denied or affirmed the existence of a self. He merely noted that when we relate to the body, feeling, perception, formations and consciousness with attachment, we suffer. Non-identification with the body and mind frees us.
This talk examines popular strategies for behavior change such as willing ourselves into compliance and analyzing our history. And it contrasts these "old ways" with the strategies of Buddhist practices.
Here we look at fourth satipatthana and its specific instructions on what to see and how to see it—the five hindrances, the five aggregates, the six sense bases, the seven factors of awakening, and the four noble truths—with an eye to realizing how this practice helps us overcome self-view.
