|Bhuumija||Majjhima||Uparipa.n.naasa, Su~n~nata Vagga||MN.126||M.iii.138ff.||23/099||desire, false view||To Bhumija. Does the desire for Awakening get in the way of Awakening? According to this discourse, the question of desiring or not desiring is irrelevant as long as one develops the appropriate qualities that constitute the path to Awakening. The discourse is also very clear on the point that there are right and wrong paths of practice: as a geographer might say, not every river flows to the sea. [TB] Just as it is impossible to get oil out of sand or milk from a cows horn, it is impossible to obtain the fruits of higher life with a wrong view.|
