Is the word ‘self’ meaningless?

What you’ll hear

From a Mindsprings meditation Zoom class discussion. Buddhists take aim at the fixed nature of our sense of selves. They believe suffering is caused when we try to keep ourselves in a fixed state. Alistair says at Mindsprings we are exploring if there really is an unchanging person within us, a ‘self.’ Perhaps we will find out the Buddhists are wrong.
