Hello Gena,

Are you referring to suicide, and or abortion, or to something else?

With metta,
Chris

Maybe ucchedavada... a denial of causal continuity over certain boundaries, e.g. death; else a positive claim that existent entities can perish.
    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting oneself one protects others? By the pursuit, development, and cultivation of the four establishments of mindfulness. It is in such a way that by protecting oneself one protects others.

    "And how is it, bhikkhus, that by protecting others one protects oneself? By patience, harmlessness, goodwill, and sympathy. It is in such a way that by protecting others one protects oneself.

i'm reading Samyutta Nykaya
the Book on five aggregates at page 905
the is 62(10) the pathway of language
there is a mention of Vassa and Banna of Ukkala proponents of noncausality and inefficacy of action and nihilism.
i was woundering of nihilism and teaching of it
is it same as termination.
i know that termination view is self view
and i'm trying to understand it.
please can some one shed some light on this.

Ajita Kesakambalin - See DN 2
Payasi - see DN 23
DN1 gives a list of 7 annihilation views.

The cessation is non self
the cessation does not rule over it own
were cessation self there would be termination
