We are all judgemental

| |

“Ānanda, those who are judgmental will pass such judgment on them: ‘This one has the same qualities as the other. Why should one be inferior and the other superior? That [judgement] of theirs will indeed lead to their harm and suffering for a long time.

Therefore, Ānanda, do not be judgmental regarding people. Do not pass judgment on people. Those who pass judgment on people harm themselves. I alone, or one like me, may pass judgement on people.”

Aṅguttara Nikaya 6:43

“Don’t be judgmental,”  we often say silently or explicitly. The Buddha says to his disciple not to judge others unless he can see through everything like the Buddha.

How can I stop being judgmental?
