On the Audacity of Ignorant Criticism

Ven. Master Hsuan Hua


Some people donít know Buddhist terms and have no understanding of Buddhist doctrines, and yet they have the audacity to criticize Buddhism, saying that Buddhism is wrong in this and that way. Actually, there is no way for them to recognize what is right and what is wrong. Living beings are so deluded that within their delusion, they continue to do deluded things; within confusion, they do confused things. This is really too pathetic.
