Hinduism - Who Was Pakudha Kacchayana?

 

Pakudha Kacchayana - Early Indian atomist philosopher whose ideas are cited in Buddhist texts.

Pakudha thought that seven things were eternal, immovable, and unchangeable, according to the scriptures: the four elements, ease, suffering, and the soul.

According to Pakudha, when a sword slashes a person's skull in half, no one loses their life; rather, the blade only enters the space between two basic sub stances (probably the soul and the physical body).

This case seems to indicate an antisocial mentality, but nothing more is known about him.
