A reminder…

Buddha

Do not believe anything (simply) because you have heard it.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.

Do not believe in anything because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in anything (simply) because it is in your religious books.

Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conductive to the good of and benefit of one and all then accept it and live up to it.

– Gautama Buddha, Anguttara Nikaya vol I

  1. My website wasn’t being added to as the guy who set up the new version didn’t have time to do it so I cancelled the site, which cost, and have gone back to the old version http://www.johnpowerweb.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ which is free, and I put updates on my Facebook page. The version of Sahasrara Devi Tantra on there is presented as Vajrayana Buddhism, as Hindus tell us you have to be born one, but Hindu dialects are included.
