Do not believe what you have heard.
Do not believe in tradition just because it is handed down from many generations.

Do not believe simply because the words come from some old sage.
Do not believe in conjecture.
Do not believe in authority or teachers or elders.
But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it.
