Symbols of Asara

Post by hipskic2 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:18 am

I'm looking for a traditional visual representations of the concept of Asara, or essence-less. In particular, I'm interested in this concept as it relates to the absence or non-existence of the self or "soul."

Is anyone aware of such a symbol?
