The REAL Kalama Sutta, in response to FAKE BUDDHA QUOTES
This may be hard to read, but the Kalama Sutta is available to read with a single Google. It’s rather brief.
FAKE BUDDHA QUOTES are, in my estimation, somewhere between 1/4 & 1/2 of ALL the Quotes sited on Facebook & Twitter. It has become DETRIMENTAL to the Public’s understanding of the Buddha Dharma. My friend has a website completely dedicated to this, and clarifying how and where the FAKE BUDDHA QUOTES come into public commonplace. WWW.FAKEBUDDHAQUOTES.COM
But my point in this is to shed light on one of the MANY, MANY FAKE BUDDHA QUOTES, and this one is one of, IF NOT THE MOST common. It is OFTEN so gravely misquoted that it falls under FAKE BUDDHA FAKE, it reads: ‘No Matter where you have read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own common sense.’ ~ NOT THE BUDDHA
