The Buddha denies the existence of any permanent entity either physical or mental. We call this theory about self as Anatmavada.

The Anatmavada Buddha Blog contains over 500 Buddhist quotes. You can select them by author, keyword or category.

Peace is the way

It is my conviction that there is no way to peace.

Peace is the way.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Conquer yourself

Greater in battle than the man who would conquer a thousand-thousand men,
is he who would conquer just one —

Better to conquer yourself than others.
When you’ve trained yourself,
living in constant self-control,
neither a deva nor gandhabba,
nor a Mara banded with Brahmas,
could turn that triumph
back into defeat.

Gautama Buddha

Following the path

We are not going in circles,
we are going upwards.

The path is a spiral;
we have already climbed many steps.

Hermann Hesse

When your study
Of Buddhism is through
You find
You haven’t anything new.
