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