Seeking Out

“Do not go by revelation or tradition,

do not go by rumor, or the sacred scriptures,

do not go by hearsay or mere logic,

do not go by bias towards a notion or

by another person’s seeming ability

and do not go by the idea ‘He is our teacher’.

 

But when you yourself know that a thing is good,

that it is not blamable,

that is praised by the wise

and when practiced and observed

that it leads to happiness,

then follow that thing.”

                                –Buddha
