Kalama Sutta or Kalama thoke or Buddha’s “charter of free inquiry.”

Kalama Sutta states:

  • Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing,
  • nor upon tradition,
  • nor upon rumor,
  • nor upon what is in a scripture,

Don’t believe the FB postings of Hmuu Zaw just because he is a director in President U Thein Sein’s office because he keeps on writing faulsr rumours to start and spread the HATE SPEECHES against Rohingya and Muslims of Myanmar.

  • nor upon surmise,
  • nor upon an axiom,
  • nor upon specious reasoning,
  • nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over,
  • nor upon another’s seeming ability,
  • nor upon the consideration, “The monk is our teacher.” [emphasis added]
  • Kalamas, when you yourselves know: “These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness,” enter on and abide in them.’
