“Beings are owners of their actions, heirs of their actions; they originate from their actions, are bound to their actions, have their actions as their refuge. It is action that distinguishes beings as inferior and superior.”

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.
