Sassatavāda (Pāli) or śāśvatavāda (Skt.). Eternalism, the doctrine of an immutable soul or self which survives death and continues everlastingly. Both eternalism and its opposite view, annihilationism, are versions of the so-called soul heresy (sakkāya-diṭṭhi) and represent, according to Buddhism, the two alternative directions which misrepresentations of reality take.
