Kalama Sutta

November 17, 2010

Do not believe in anything (simply) because you have heard it

Do not believe in traditions because they have beeen handed down for many generations

Do not believe in anything 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

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
