buddha says: on belief

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – even if I have said it – unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddharta Gautama Buddha

He who was Shakyamuni was born in what is now known as Nepal, around 563 BCE. He spent the early part of his life as a prince, but later renounced his life of power and wealth to seek spiritual enlightenment through the practice of extreme austerities; when he almost died from starvation, he meditated, and realized that the proper path was through the Middle Way – moderation.
