The Buddha's Words  Reply with quote  

Just before Shakyamuni Buddha died, he told his disciples...

“Do not believe something will get through airport security simply because you have heard it will . Do not believe something will get through airport security simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe something will get through airport security simply because it says so in your religious books. Do not believe something will get through airport security merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions about what will get through airport security 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, realizing that this will get through airport security.

Unless the airport security people are having a really bad day, in which case that will probably still not get through airport security."
