Wisdom Tradition

Wisdom is the thing for evidencing.  The evidence of your wisdom is in my making others wise after becoming wise from you.  This is the way wisdom flows into human tradition from generation to generation.   That which is not wisdom cannot flow into tradition or get transferred to next generation.  The content of wisdom has no variation among different individuals.  Wisdom would be same for all (wise) human beings.  The variation would only be in its presentation.  Therefore tradition of wisdom shall become stronger and more precise with every next generation.  With every new generation it would become easier to do the right (live wisely).  All human beings have this need.  Therefore one with wisdom alone becomes contented by offering their wisdom to next generation, and next generation also becomes contented this way.
