Scientific Principles of Siddharth Gautam Buddha for Peace and Harmony

Jugal Kishore


In world history, Socrates and Aristotle are considered the first great philosophers and thinkers. However, the Siddharth Guatam Buddha is first original thinker and scientist in the world. According to Kalama Sutta, Buddha said, “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
