Teachings Of the Buddha

The Buddha said:

“We must not believe in a thing said merely because it is said; nor traditions because they have been handed down from Buddha”antiquity; nor rumors, as such; nor writings by sages because sages wrote them nor fancies that we may suspect to have been inspired in us by a Deva; nor from inferences drawn from some haphazard assumption we may have made; nor of what seems an analogical necessity; nor on the mere authority of our teachers or masters. But we are to believe when the writing, doctrine, or saying is corroborated by our own reason and consiousness.” 


“I taught you not to believe merely because you have heard, but when you believed of your consciousness, then to act accordingly and abundantly.”

Secret Doctrine 111.401
