Do you know what a view is? You may hear people use that word when they look out a window of a very tall building and say, “Wow, that’s a great view! You can see so many things from up here!” Well, that’s one kind of view. Another kind of view is a view about how the world works. Just like when you go up a tall building and look out you have a good view, the Supreme Buddha, with his wisdom, was able to have a perfect view about how the world works. He called that Right View. In Pali we say Sammā Diṭṭhi. Today we’ll learn about the type of Right View that the Buddha wanted us to develop on the path to enlightenment.
