The state of wrong view or belief (Skt. dṛṣṭi; Tib. ལྟ་བ་ཉོན་མོངས་ཅན་, Wyl. lta ba nyon mongs can), which is one among the fifty-one mental states, can be subdivided into five wrong views (Tib. ལྟ་བ་ལྔ་, Wyl. lta ba lnga):

  1. the view of the transitory collection (Skt. satkāyadṛṣṭi; Tib. འཇིག་ཚོགས་ལ་ལྟ་བ་, Wyl. 'jig tshogs la lta ba) which is the basis for the other four wrong views of beliefs
  2. extremist views (Skt. antagrāhadṛṣṭi; Tib. མཐར་འཛིན་པའི་ལྟ་བ་, Wyl. mthar 'dzin pa'i lta ba) such as eternalism and nihilism
  3. wrong views (Skt. mithyadṛṣṭi; Tib. ལོག་ལྟ་, Wyl. log lta), which cut the roots of virtue
  4. belief in ideological supremacy (Skt. dṛṣṭiparāmarśa; Tib. ལྟ་བ་མཆོག་འཛིན་, Wyl. lta ba mchog 'dzin)
  5. belief in ethical and ritual supremacy (Skt. śilavrataparāmarśa; Tib. ཚུལ་ཁྲིམས་དང་བརྟུལ་ཞུགས་མཆོག་འཛིན་, Wyl. tshul khrims dang brtul zhugs mchog 'dzin)
