Abstract

A dialogue, somewhat in the spirit of Samuel Becket’s Waiting for Godot, exploring early Buddhist attitudes to views, especially as in the M?gandiya-sutta of the Sutta-nip?ta (vv.835-847). Is the aim to have right view, or go beyond views; or is right view about not being attached to any view?
