At such a significant moment in Buddhist history, it seems important to consider how Buddhists of different traditions should relate to one another. Here, Sangharakshita homes in on the central principles of such communication.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
The Buddha
