Superstition | by Ajahn Brahm

Even in this modern scientific era many people are still very superstitious. And superstition induces fear. But original Buddhism questions everything and doesn’t require blind faith in things that cannot be directly experienced. As Ajahn Brahm says, “We need to bend the faith to fit the facts, not bend the facts to fit the faith.” Superstition is only an obstacle to spiritual development.
