Everybody makes a judgement, acts as a judge, even where he seems not to do so at all; merely by accepting an organization's view, or a religion's creed, he actually judges the organization or religion and the view. He may seem to depend on authority, to submit to the hierarchy of the organization or religion with its supposedly superior knowledge or power, but in actuality he unwittingly pronounces judgement in its favour. In the end, the responsibility for this decision is primarily his own.
An ancient Sanskrit work, The Yoga Vasistha Ramayana by Valmiki, pertinently says: "Judgement is the sole resource of seekers; they have no other way for their intellect to shun evil and attain good. The state of spiritual release which is boundless freedom is brought about by the help of judgement."
