The Worst of Wrong Views

10247251_301763966641723_8106996463809295512_nIf one thinks that one has realized emptiness

and becomes attached to emptiness,

then one regresses in the pursuit of the Dharma.

It is better for one to hold a wrong view of the self

as massive as Mount Sumeru

Why? Because all views can be eliminated by emptiness,

but the view of emptiness cannot be eradicated.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Maharatnakuta Sutra
