To the Kalamas

When you know for yourselves that, ‘These ideas are unskillful; these ideas are blameworthy; these ideas are censured by the wise; these ideas, when adopted and carried out, lead to harm and to suffering’ — then you should abandon them.

And when you know for yourselves that other ideas are favorable and beneficial, then accept them and practice them.

—Buddha Shakyamuni
