Definition Of:

Anatta

Pali Buddhist Dictionary
not self, Egolessness
Buddhism Dictionary
The Buddhist notion that there is no eternal soul, unlike in Hinduism. Instead, each living person is an association of five skandas , which fly apart at death. Linguistically, "atta" is Pali for "atman" while "an" is the negative. The term literally means "no soul."
