Have you ever disagreed with someone because you perceived the same thing differently?
When you look at something, do you see the same as someone else? Or when you smell something and you like it, does that mean everyone will like it? Have you ever liked something one day and the next day you hated it? Have you ever disagreed with someone because you perceived the same thing differently? In Buddhism, it is said we should not always believe what we interpret from our sense perceptions. Everything in the world can be perceived in a multitude of ways, and there might not be one way of seeing that is completely truthful. Let’s examine the working of perception and interpretation.
