Blurb: The author discusses Vitsiputriya and that espoused the theory that a pudgala (a sort of person) supported the 5 personal aggregates (skandha) and made possible the Intermediate State (antarribhava) between death and rebirth. This theory was developed to preserve the doctrine of insubstantiality.
