Do not have opinions on other people’s actions.

“Do not have opinions on other people’s actions. When we see defects in others, people in general but particularly those who have entered the Dharma… we should understand that it is the impurity of our perception which is at fault. When we look in a mirror, we see a dirty face because our own face is dirty. In the same way, the defects of others are nothing but our impure way of seeing them. By thinking in this way, we should try and ride ourselves of this perception of the faults of others and cultivate the attitude whereby the whole of existence, all appearances are experienced as pure.”

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
