NO SELF?

...

Is there an unchanging 'self'?

Is there an unchanging soul or spirit?

In Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam, there is a belief that something survives death.

But, that 'something' may not be 'unchanging'.

"Buddha criticized the materialistic annihilationism view that denied rebirth and karma."[47] 

The Buddha criticized the idea of an unchanging soul.

Jesus said that we must be 'born again'.

Buddhists and Christians teach that we should be 'selfless' rather than 'selfish'.

There is a belief that Heaven and Nirvana are achieved when one becomes selfless and becomes part of the divine soul.
