Re: Self-mind

I'm not really sure what it is referring to and how it fits in with Anatta and sunyata.

Self-mind

Hello, I'm reading an article that states the following: It is for these reasons that the Mahayana scriptures aregue that “nirvana is samsara.” Rather than view nirvana, the extinguishment of suffering, as some other realm beyond the world of cyclic existence of everyday life, rather than see nirvan...

I'm actually a little surprised that there has not been a single response.
