VIEWS AND NON-ATTACHMENT

I began this book by suggesting that there are two ways in which the notion of dihi is understood: the opposition and the no-views understandings. I have argued that neither of these gives a proper interpretation of the notion of views. By the term sammā-dihi is meant neither a correct view which stands in opposition to wrong-views, nor the rejection of all views, but a completely different order of seeing that transcends all views. In this concluding chapter I would like to consider some of the issues at stake in this understanding. To begin with, I would like to explore in more detail the issue I considered in the Introduction on whether rightview can express a teaching that advises complete non-attachment from all acts of cognition.
