Ditthupadana

From Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia

Ditthupadana means the attachment to the view which rejects future life and kamma. Hence ucchedaditthi which insists on annihilation after death is a kind of ditthupadana. A person who holds such a belief will have no need to do good or avoid evil. He will do nothing for other worldly welfare and seek to enjoy life as much as possible by fair means or foul. As he has no moral scruples, most of his acts are unwholesome kammas that create death-bed visions and lead him to, the lower worlds. This is evident in the story of Nandaka peta.
