The Locus of Control within Buddhism

January 10, 2009

Notice that it is your thoughts, attitudes and actions that are the concern, not those of others. We are responsible for the world that we see around us. The imperative is ‘do not judge but be just’.

Care of Thomas:

Do not be concerned with the faults of other persons. Do not see others faults with a hateful mind. There is an old saying that if you stop seeing others faults, then naturally seniors are venerated and juniors are revered. Do not imitate other’s faults; just cultivate virtue. Buddha prohibited unwholesome actions, but did not tell us to hate those who practice unwholesome actions.
