“This is the entire spiritual life, Ananda, that is, good friendship, good companionship, good comradeship. When a monk has a good friend, a good companion, a good comrade, it is to be expected that he will develop and cultivate the Noble Eightfold Path.”

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.
