kalama sutta

  • do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing
  • nor upon tradition
  • nor upon rumour
  • nor upon what is in a scripture
  • nor upon surmise
  • nor upon an axiom
  • nor upon specious reasoning
  • nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over
  • nor upon another’s seeming ability
  • nor upon the consideration, “The monk is our teacher.”
  • when you yourselves know: “these things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness,” enter on and abide in them

from kalama sutta.
