ATI Glossary

sakkāya-diṭṭhi: Self-identification view. The view that mistakenly identifies any of the khandha as “self”; the first of the ten fetters (saṁyojana). Abandonment of sakkāya-diṭṭhi is one of the hallmarks of stream-entry (see sotāpanna). [ more ]


Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanatiloka Thera:

sakkāya-diṭṭhi: 'personality-belief', is the first of the 10 fetters (saṅyojana). It is entirely abandoned only on reaching the path of Stream-winning (Sotāpatti-magga; see ariya-puggala). There are 20 kinds of personality-belief, which are obtained by applying 4 types of that belief to each of the 5 groups of existence (see khandha): (1-5) the belief to be identical with corporeality, feeling, perception, mental formations or consciousness; (6-10) to be contained in them; (11-15) to be independent of them; (16-20) to be the owner of them (MN 44; SN 2II. 1). See precedent  section, diṭṭhi, upādāna 4.
