Which is more permanent our inner or outer selves?
Is who you are on the inside more important to you than who you seem to be to others from your exterior?
First of all...there are no degrees of permanence. Something is either permanent, or it's not.
However, I believe that our inner selves are permanent, and, therefore, longer lasting than our outer selves.
In other words, our souls are permanent and our bodies are merely temporary shells.
i completely agree with David99999 i could not have said it better!
One of the last known teachings the Buddha left was given on the evening of his paranibbana ...he declared..."Sabbe sankhara annica ti.....all conditioned/compounded things are transitory." Our selves are as impermanent as things can be....Being aware of this teaching, one eventually learns the futility of clinging/grasping to those things which arise and pass away, and we learn how to live in the NOW...And to the second part of the question...The self I maintain within me is my true self..it is not the self others assess and attempt to define, so I would say who I am on the inside is more important.

Why do we give so much importance to outer beauty than inner beauty i.e. more weightage to face...& body than heart?

Can insecurities actually make us see our physical selves differently?
