Don’t Believe !


Don’t believe in a news, just because you have heard it.
Don’t believe in a tradition, just because it has been done through generations.
Don’t believe in something, just because it has been talked about and rumored by many people.
Don’t believe in something, just because it has been written in holy books.
Don’t believe in something, just because it has been taught by teachers or elders.

But after making observations and in depth analyses,
you found out that the issues being talked about are in accordance with good and useful reason,
then it is not disgraceful if the things are continued which will bring forth happiness,
that is why, it is proper that you will receive it and live according to the said principles.

(Anguttara Nikaya, Vol.I, 188 – 193)
