Dhp 256 157 Judgmental v Judicious
2021-06-13 Dhp 256 157 Judgmental v Judicious 17:56
Bhante Bodhidhamma
These two verses are about the process of judging. It is something we are doing all the time whether of people, political parties, other countries and so on. So it is as well to remnd ourselves how we come to a just and correct judgements especially with all the fake news about. I made a mistake at the end quoting the Pali Dhammassa gutto which means Protector of the Dhamma/Law. I ought to have quoted Dhammattho, Standing in the Dhamma - Righteous.
