Traditions

Quote of the day:

Do not believe in any traditions just because they have been valid for long years in many countries.  Do not believe in something just because people constantly repeat it.  Accept nothing because someone else has said it, because it is based on the authority of a wise man, or because it is written in the holy writings.  Do not believe anything just because it seems probable.  Do not believe in the fantasies and visions which you consider given to you by God.  Believe nothing just because the authority of a teacher or priest stands behind it.  Believe in that which you perceive to be right through a lengthy examination of your own, in that which let’s itself be reconciled with your own good and that of others.
