…NOT BLIND FAITH

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it. ” – The Buddha

“Mind precedes all things: mind is their chief, mind is their maker.” – The Buddha

‘’In this very one-fathom-long body, along with its perceptions and thoughts, do I proclaim the world, the origin of the world, the cessation of the world, and the path leading to the cessation of the world.’’ – The Buddha

“Mind is the very nearest to us, because through mind alone are we aware of the so-called external world including our own body.‘If mind is comprehended, all things are comprehended’…" – the Buddha

In the Buddha’s teaching, it is the direct experience of “reality as it is”—before a mind conditions it—by using one’s own mind as the laboratory—and not through mere attachment to rites, rituals and ceremonies—that one begins to dispel the darkness of ‘ignorance’—which may otherwise envelop oneself and others, through attachment, division, conflict and suffering—and tread the path towards liberation. – Kanages Ramesh
