"Paradoxical though it may sound. There is a path to walk on, there is walking being done. But there is no traveller. There are deeds being done but there is no doer. There is a blowing in the air but there is no wind that does the blowing. The thought of Self is an error and all existences are as hollow as the plaintain tree and as empty as twirling water bubbles.

Therefore, oh Bhikkhus, as there is no self there is no transmigration of a Self; but there are deeds and the continued effects of deeds. There is a re-birth of Karma, there is re-incarnation. This Rebirth, this re-incarnation, this re-appearance of the conformed is continuous and depends upon the Law of Cause and Effect. Just as a seal is impressed upon the wax reproducing the configurations of it’s device, so the thoughts of men, their characters, their aspirations are impressed upon others in continuous transference and continue their Karma. Good deeds will continue in blessings while bad deeds will continue in curses.

There is no entity here that migrates, no Self is transferred from one place to another. But there is a voice uttered here and the echo of it comes back."
