SN.23.17. Anattasutta ("Not-Self")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

At Sāvatthī.

Seated to one side, Venerable Rādha said to the Buddha:

“Sir, they speak of this thing called ‘not-self’. What is not-self?”

“Rādha, form, feeling, perception, choices, and consciousness are not-self.

Seeing this … They understand: ‘… there is no return to any state of existence.’”
