View, meditation and action

We also speak about view, meditation and action. In order to cultivate transcendental knowledge or prajna we need to hear, study, and contemplate the teachings and then meditate on their meaning.

Correct view

Correct view is called the "noble view" and incorrect view the "ignoble view."The things that we believe in must come from having adopted the noble view (samma ditthi in Pali, samyha drsti in Sanskrit, yang dag pai lta ba in Tibetan).

Instead of thinking that we should not believe in anything at all, we need to learn the appropriate things to discard from our belief systems, even in relation to spirituality. Through the process of refining our views, we learn how to re-orient ourselves on the spiritual path, realizing that liberation and our belief systems are intimately related.
