as being empty, having no fixed identity. It’s void of intrinsic existence.

But people come to the study of Dharma to increase their self-view;

they don’t want to experience suffering or difficulty. They want everything to be cozy.

They may want to transcend suffering,

but if there is still a self, how can they ever do so?
—Ajahn Chah
