We must develop a firm conviction about the suffering of samsara, to the degree that we no longer harbor any desires for samsara and wholeheartedly seek liberation from it. At the same time, we must also cultivate the transcendent wisdom that is implicit in ultimate liberation. To seek liberation blindly without grasping inherent wisdom will not bring forth complete renunciation. The Four Noble Truths of the Hinayana tradition are a part of this wisdom; complete renunciation entails mastery of the Four Noble Truths.
