To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

Hi clw_Uk,

I wondered whether the inclusion of the words 'right view with effluents' suggested an interpretation of a 'tainted' right view to you? In many ways you would be correct to say that.. (if you did). However even though it might be 'tainted' it is nevertheless Right View of some sort- that is to say it is not Wrong view- as in the idea that there is no rebirth would be wrong view. Keeping the idea of rebirth aside because you dont believe in it without any stronger evidence is also acceptable IMO... if you accept that the underlying foundation that removing lobha, dosa and moha leads to nibbana (it also leads to stopping rebirth).

It is also important to note that there isnt evidence to disprove rebirth either. There was a time when I just kept it in the 'don't know either way' box for a while.
