BELIEVE IN NOT
(Words of Wisdom from the Buddha)
Do Not Believe in the strength of Tradition
Even if they have been held
In honor for many Generations and many Places
Do not Believe Anything because many people speak of it
Do not Believe in the strength of the Sages of old times
Do not Believe that which You yourself have imagined
Thinking that a God has inspired you.
Believe nothing which depends only on Authority of
Your Master or of Priests
After Investigation, Believe That Which
You yourself have Tested and found Reasonable,
And which is for Your Good and that of Others.
