First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words; Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher; Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation; And fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.
~ Traditional Buddhist teaching ~
“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies. That is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.”
~ Jiddu Krishnamurti ~
