Quote from movie "The Last monk" engraved on gourd:
"Wisdom In human history, insofar as it is a history of human institutions, whether religious or political in nature, is a tragic testimony to the simple fact that wisdom defies formalization, and formalization makes a mockery of wisdom. Wisdom is an outlook, an attitude, characterized by mindfulness, and impartiality, and freedom from prejudice and dogma. Wisdom is not doctrines or slogans, or adherence to any sort of orthodoxy, because wisdom can never successfully be codified or formalized, and because wisdom by it's very nature is expressed in openness, it follows that wisdom can never be the exclusive property of any one religious or philosophical system."
