Buddha quotes


  • Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. 
  • Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. 
  • Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious  books. 
  • Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. 
  • Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many  generations. 
  • But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees  with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept   it and live up to it. 

~Buddha

    The Kalama Sutta, one of the landmarks that set the Buddha’s teaching apart from almost all of the rest of the world’s traditions in setting testing and verification, and individual responsibility above all else. Great post. Kind Regards, dn
