Re: Does Thanissaro Bhikkhu believe in a soul?

the Buddha
said those ascetics and brahmins who regard anything as self
all regard five aggregates of clinging or certain amongs them
regard form as self
self possessing form
form as in self
self as in form
same goes for other 4 aggregates.

spiritual friends

I have a question about spiritual Friends
does they need to be Buddhist too
or they might practice some other discipline
and can you make a out of someone who practice a different discipline
into a Buddhist if he interested.
