The Mirror, Vol. 13, No. 599

As Monday, 9 February 2009, is a National Holiday, there are no translations from the press on this day.

There is a variety of interpretations of this important commemoration of Meakh Bochea: that Buddha, the Enlightened One, pronounced the principles of his teachings, summarized threefold: to do good, to abstain from doing bad, to keep a pure mind.

Some words of the Buddha:

Words of the Buddha

Words of the Buddha


Believe nothing on the face of traditions,
even though they have been held in honor
for many generation and in diverse places.
Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it.
Do not believe in the faith of the sages of the past.
Do not believe what you yourself have imagined,
persuading yourself that a God inspires you.
Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests.
After examination, believe what you yourself have tested
and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

Buddha
