When human beings entertain erroneous notions it causes our behavior to sink into depravity, caused by our confusion about the Three Truths of Non-Substantiality, Temporary Existence and the Middle Path. It is brought about by the blinding nature of our earthly desires. Shakyamuni only expounded Buddhism so that people could become emancipated through the principle of the Three Truths. However, the principle of the Three Truths is actually difficult to understand.
