The passage stikes me since it seems to be teaching that views and thoughts about past and future are either


Not important for understanding Dhamma at all

or

Not important for some


Its also interesting since its teaching D.O. happening in the present, as in right now, and not over lives since past and future are waved aside in this passage


Just my two cents

No :jumping:


I was showing that having no views is the final goal and is part of the path and not "eel wriggling"


as i said i still have some views

However Dhamma is a gradual process of letting go bit by bit, including views one by one
