Wisdom of Buddha | a true sage, muni

Sleeping Buddha 2
Originally uploaded by Mystic Lens.
By quietude alone one does not become a sage (muni) if he is foolish and ignorant.

But he who, as if holding a pair of scales, takes the good and shuns the evil, is a wise man; he is indeed a muni by that very reason.

He who understands both good and evil as they really are, is called a true sage.
