coming at this from anther angle- buddhists are supposed to give up attachment to the teaching as well- so much so that enlightened being are called 'asaddaka' -meaning 'faithless'! This means that if someone berates your beliefs it doesnt cause you suffering. I remember a monk who was believed to be enlightened -he said that he was corresponding with a muslim professor -he said that if the professor managed to convince him he would convert (he said this quite seriously)!

Vision is Mind
Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss
