The Most Profound View

 Among all of the proponents of all the different philosophical tenets, there is no one who thinks that their view is inferior to somebody else's. Any specific follower of any tenet is always going to say that their view is the most profound, because if one thinks that one's own view is inferior to someone else's, one will not be very enthusiastic about listening to teachings about it and meditating on it. Therefore, when we hear any presentation of the philosophical views, it is really up to us to decide what we think is the most profound view. When the Buddha made these presentations of the different philosophical views, the point was to allow people to investigate the various teachings with their own intelligence, and in that way, to become skilled in the different philosophical views and to be able to learn how to analyze things for themselves.
