Four Things that Shouldn’t be Despised

Four things should not be looked down upon and despised because they are young. They are –

  1. A serpent
  2. A fire
  3. A prince
  4. A novice monk

The bite of even a small snake may kill. A little fire may become a huge inferno that destroys building and forests. An enraged young prince may ruthlessly cause harm to others. Even a young monk may be a saint.

What Buddhism is Not

What Buddhism is not –

Buddhists are not idol-worshipers. Buddhists pay homage to what the image represents.

The Buddha image symbolizes the wisdom, loving-kindness, and compassion of the great Teacher.

They try to live according to their teacher’s high standard of wisdom, loving-kindness, and compassion.
