Blurb: The meaning of Buddhist texts is not clear in literal translations. Consider this statement. 'The Buddha taught that living beings have no self; what we think of as self consists of 5 aggregates.' It appears to be so obscure as to be meaningless. The author stresses the Buddha’s capacity for abstraction.
