The Assurance of Free Inquiry
The Kalama Sutta (Anguttara-Nikaya III, 65)
Do not believe in 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 rumoured by many.
Do not believe in anything (simply) because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
When you yourself know:
''These things are profitable; these things are not profitable; these things are praised by ..the wise and cultivated by the wise, then accept and practise only what leads to welfare ..and happiness of both yourself and others.''
According to the Basic Protective Measures Ordinance, all previous protective regulations will cease to apply from 01 April. Since the incidence of infection is nevertheless very high, we recommend wearing a mask in areas of the main building such as the temple where the minimum distance cannot be maintained. A hygiene and protection concept is available for all events and is binding for all participants. Please inquire about this with the respective event organizers.
The Sunday lecture series will resume from May 8, 2022.
