judge not lest ye be judged

August 28, 2010

The results of Karma cannot be known by thought and so should not be speculated about. Thus thinking, one would come to distraction and distress.

Therefore, Ananda, do not be the judge of people; do not make assumptions about others. A person is destroyed by holding judgments about others.

– From the Anguttara Nikaya
