Mirror of Buddhism

Harcharan Singh Sobti (Author)
Synopsis The Buddha in one of his discourses, Kesaputta Sutta, included in Anguttara Nikaya (A.ii.190), has expressed his views in respect of reading, listening and believing The Buddha was of the view that any idea is not true because one has read it in some Scriptures. It is not true either since one has heard it like that. Neither it is true because it has been believed to be true. The Buddha did not spare even himself and stated that it is not true because he has said it. The Buddha, infact, wanted that a person should learn to listen to his/her own experiences instead of listening to the Scriptures and others. What matters is one’s own experience. The Buddha discovered the Nibbanic state through this single device of Experience. This collection, besides providing informations, aims as to help those who wish to arrive at the state of Nibbana.
