He devotes a large portion of his book to explaining the anatta doctrine. He states that the Buddha sought the atta indirectly by removing from the atta all that isn’t the atta. This was the path that Buddha took so seriously and with such success that all that is cognizable became anatta. He said, “You teach the anatta but I teach the atta.” While you speak about the atta, I refer to anatta. In other words, you have the atta technique, the attavada, while I have the anatta approach, the anattavada.
