“Just as a line drawn on water with a stick will quickly vanish and will not last long; even so, brahmins, is human life like a line drawn on water. It is short, limited, and brief; it is full of suffering. One should do good and live a pure life; for none who is born can escape death.”
~ The Buddha

Kalama Sutta Part II

Bhante Gunaratana

When asked by the Kalama people the best way to determine right and wrong, the Buddha advises not to follow tradition, one’s own inclinations, pure reason or reports but to observe the results of holding a particular belief. One should use appropriate attention to test a belief and, further, one should inquire about the belief with those one considers wise.
