Living Being.—The Buddha taught that there is no soul, no essential and permanent core to a living being. Instead, that which we call a living being, human or other, can be seen to be but a temporary coming together of many activities and parts - when complete it is called a living being, but after the parts separate and the activities cease it is not called a living being anymore.
