Non-perception

Manjusuri 3463.jpg

There is a connection and relationship between our craving and conceit with the non-perception of this delusion of self. This, Buddha said, is our misconception regarding existence. To Kaccayana, Buddha explained it this way: "Now, Kaccayana, to one who with right wisdom sees the arising of the world as it is, the view of non-existence regarding the world does not occur. And to one who with right wisdom sees the cessation of the world as it really is, the view of existence regarding the world does not occur." By rejecting both extremes, Buddha leads us to a knowledge without concepts by which the world identifies itself. This is detachment without grasping or clinging to any position and avoids substituting one wrong view with another. One then has no views because he no longer has to contend with ' I ' and 'mine'.
