The value of dhamma isn’t to be found in books. Those are just the external appearances of dhamma, they’re not the realization of dhamma as a personal experience. If you realize the dhamma you realize your own mind, you see the truth there. When the truth becomes apparent it cuts off the stream of delusion.
