When the Buddha explains these things using such concepts and ideas,
people should remember the unreality of all such concepts and ideas.
They should recall that in teaching spiritual truths the Buddha always uses these concepts and ideas in the way that a raft is used to cross a river.
Once the river has been crossed over,{ to attain
Enlightenment} the raft{ spiritual concepts and ideas } is of no more use, and should be discarded.
