In the Commontology, we want to document relevant truths.

By the given time, we may carry together criteria for the good and the "not blamable" actions and thus knowledge. Then we may form circles of the wise beings in this field of knowledge and find a consensus, what leads to the bendfit and happieness of all beings on this world.

These our guidlines of critical inquiery are aligned on what was formulated by the Buddha in the Kalama Sutra:

  • Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing (anussava),
  • nor upon tradition (paramparā),
  • nor upon rumor (itikirā),
  • nor upon what is in a scripture (piṭaka-sampadāna)
  • nor upon surmise (takka-hetu),
  • nor upon an axiom (naya-hetu),
  • nor upon specious reasoning (ākāra-parivitakka),
  • nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over (diṭṭhi-nijjhān-akkh-antiyā),
  • nor upon another's seeming ability (bhabba-rūpatāya),
  • nor upon the consideration, The monk is our teacher (samaṇo no garū)
  • Kalamas, when you yourselves know: "These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness," enter on and abide in them." (Wikipedia/Kalama Sutra).
