PEACE

1. My life has been full of terrible misfortunes most of which never happened. – Michel de Montaigne

************************************************************************
No gods; no supernature, only thought and reasoning”
“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.” Shakyamuni Buddha
( Angutra Nikaya , vol 1, 188-193 )
तुम किसी बात को केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकार करो कि यह अनुश्रुत है, केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकारो कि यह हमारे धर्मग्रंथ के अनूकूल है या यह तर्क सम्मत है , केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकरो कि यह यह अनुमान सम्मत है , केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकारो कि इसके कारणॊं की सावधानी पूर्वक परीक्षा कर ली गई है , केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकरो कि इस पर हमने विचार कर अनुमोदन कर लिया है , केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकारो कि कहने वाले का व्यक्तित्व आकर्षक है, केवल इसलिये मत स्वीकारो कि कहने वाला श्रमण हमारा पूज्य है । जब तुम स्वानुभव से यह जानो कि यह बातें अकुशल हैं और इन बातों के चलने से अहित होता है , दुख होता है तब तुम उन बातों को छॊड दो ! शाक्यमुनि बुद्ध :अंगुत्तरनिकाय

My belief is that the various religious traditions have great potential to increase compassion, the sense of caring for one another, and the spirit of reconciliation. However, I believe that a human being, without religious faith, can be a very good person – sincere, a good heart, having a sense of concern for others – without belief in a particular religious faith.
Dalai Lama

*************************************************************************
“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” Dalai Lama
