PREf'ACE TO THE
E~GLISH
EDITION
Together with a replyletterfrom Suan Mokkhabalan'ima,Chaiya, Surat Thani, Than Achan Buddhadasa sent me abundle
of
his
Dhamma
books,
among
which there
is
one
entitled
t l , r [ ; l ( ; l 1 ! J t l ~ ' I ' I " j : ; Y j ' Y l 5 L ' ) 1 
(The
Buddha's
Doctrine
of
Anatta).He
expressed his wish for me
to consider translating
this
book
into
English
and
added
in his letter,
"if
you
are
able
to."
In
his letter, the
Than
Achan
also advised:
"This
book
will
make
people
understand better
the
word
'anatta'
(notself) as
meant
by the
Buddha,
since
there
have been
too
man}doctrines which
are
so
ambiguous
as
to
confuse
people ingeneral.
Or,
if
you
are
not ina positionto
translate
the
book,
I would suggest
that
youtry
to
study and
discuss
it
with
your
friends who
are
interested
in
this
toPIC."
Then
the
Than
Achan
explained the associated terms:
"Atta"
means fullyhavingself.
"Niratta"
means
having
nothing
whatsoever.
"Anatta"
means
"self"
that
is
not-self,which
is
righteous.Next, he
added:
"This
means
that
the
'self'
we
percei\e
is
a
borrowed
one,
but
we
must treat
it rightly in
order to
benefit from
it.
Otherwise,
itwill
bite
us.
Eventuall}, attachment
to
self
in
everything will
naturally
be eliminated. Sotry
your
best to have
'self'
that
is
not
self."
