sammā-ditthi; s. ditthi, magga 1, sacca IV.1. - For wrong view, s. ditthi.
Right Understanding means understanding the Buddhist view, which, as we saw, is the middle view between eternalism and nihilism. As the Buddha said, knowing how the world arises due to causes and conditions enables us not to fall into the extreme of nihilism. The other aspect of the middle view is knowing how everything ceases when causes and conditions cease. Therefore, we do not fall into the extreme of the substantialist, essentialist, or eternalist view, because we realize that, even though things come into being through causes and conditions, nothing that exists on the physical or mental plane endures when those causes and conditions are no longer present.
Sammâdiṭṭhi; lit: 'right views'; A knowledge of the four truths, and of such doctrines about personality and karma as are implied in them.
