Buddha’s words – Las palabras de Buda

Rely not on the teacher/person, but on the teaching. Rely not on the words of the teaching, but on the spirit of the words.

Rely not on theory, but on experience. 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 anything because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.

But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and the benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

There is only one teacher; may you find him now.


No fíes del maestro o la persona, sino de la enseñanza. No fíes de las palabras de la enseñanza, sino del espíritu de las palabras. No creas nada por el mero hecho de haberlo oído. No creas en las tradiciones porque se hayan transmitido por generaciones.

No creas en lo que sea por el hecho de que mucha gente lo haya rumoreado. No creas en lo que sea por el hecho de estar escrito en tus libros religiosos. No creas en lo que sea debido a la autoridad de tus maestros y ancianos.

Mas cuando por medio de la observación y la investigación encuentres que alguna cosa concuerda con la razón y conduce al bien y al beneficio de uno y de todos, acéptalo y vive de acuerdo con ello.

Hay solamente un maestro. Que lo encuentres sin demora.  /library/niftyplayer/niftyplayer.swf?file=/library/music/note04.mp3&as=1
