Judging Others is Your Downfall-by Gharwang Rinpoche

Judging Others is Your Downfall.

by Zurmang Gharwang on Thursday, March 31, 2011 at 5:27am

It seems to me that many of us, when we see or meet someone, we pretend to know everything about others and we simply start judging without any knowledge. Frankly speaking, we are just inviting unwanted consequences and your judgment may lead to further complication.

There is a saying,” The Tiger’s pattern is outside and the human’s pattern is inside.” Similarly, Buddha also said, “You don’t judge others, who judges others will bring downfall. What this means to us is that there is a great lesson to be learnt. I see many problems arising when we say something about others when we don’t know. For instance, to say or even think about someone without any fact or logical conclusion is wrong. Such act builds division within family and friends. To save our meaningful days and to keep up our friendship with family and friends, we should be wise not just intelligent. It is always wise to say if it is meaningful or purposeful, otherwise, just be sensible and wise to judge yourself before anyone else. Because to see your own short coming is more difficult than you might think. Moreover, we need to address our own faults, rather than accusing others. Finally, We need to improve our own driving skill rather than saying how others are such bad drivers which  in any case is not going to help us . Let the truth judge others! We just follow the fact and wisdom! Let us judge ourselves because we know better than anyone else!

With love
