“Don’t believe anything only by hearsay. Don’t believe according to traditions only because they’ve been honouring them for generations. Don’t believe anything because general opinion thinks it is true, or because they often talked of it. Don’t believe anything on the only witnessing on an antique wise man. Don’t believe anything because probabilities or habits lead you to think it is true.

Don’t believe what comes from your own imagination, taking it for a Superior Power ‘s revealing. Don’t believe anything founded on the only authority of your masters and priests. What you really feel by yourself, what you experienced and saw that is true, what is profitable for you and others, in this, believe and adapt your acts”.

– Gautama Buddha
