Javi -Doctrine is less important, (even if 'ultimate') than the motive & effects of our thoughts, words and deeds
When I was much younger doctrines were far more important to me. Then I discovered, over the decades, that 80% (or some very large percentage) of Theosophists, Xtians, Muslims, HIndus, Buddhists etc. are not that well versed in, much less wedded to, such conceptual realms.Well, this is true to an extent, but we must remember that attachment to eternalistic doctrines is an extreme, and thus an obstacle to awakening according to the dhamma.
And truth be told, the percentage of those fully dedicated & vowed for many future lives to Bodhi or whatever ultimate spiritual goal, is small and always will be.
