Sīlabbata-parāmāsa (Pāli) or śīlavrata-paramārśa (Skt., ‘cleaving to rules and rites’). According to Buddhism, the mistaken view that adherence to rules and rites is sufficient to bring about holiness and purity. The view is rejected as one of the four kinds of clinging (upādāna) to existence and one of the ten fetters (saṃyojanas).
