TOLERANCE – is the wisdom of not making judgements on fellow men since we can never be sure of their true motivations, trials and personal problems. Criticism of others’ beliefs, habits and personalities is unwarranted, self-righteous and inexcusable. The tolerant man does not measure others only by their errors, but rather he asks himself how he would have reacted under identical circumstances. In place of a critical, irritable attitude toward another, which can only add to the cross he must bear, the tolerant man is slow to speak and act lest he detract from his opportunity to spread happiness and peace into the lives of those with whom he comes in contact. To detract from the reputation of another by gossip and hearsay is karmically disastrous.
