A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on philosophy, belief, doctrine, criteria, buddhism, judgment, tradition, imagine, teacher, examine, analysis, analyze, welfare, beings, and guide
Believe nothing, O monks, just because you have been told it, or it is commonly believed, or because it is traditional or because you yourselves have imagined it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to and take as your guide.
