What was Jesus writing in the sand when the woman was caught in adultery? Was it the 10 commandments, or was he writing down all the sins of the Pharisees, and what is the symbolism in such

To understand these examples and avoid falling into the mistake of judging or condemning what we do not know, it is important that we understand that there are two laws:
  • The First Law: the instructions given directly to the Human Soul by the Innermost or Inner Buddha
  • The Second Law: the written law, the vows, commandments, and other guidelines in religions (the commandments are given in Deuteronomy, which comes from deutero, second)
The instructions given by God transcend the written law. The physical senses are not a reliable tool to measure the superior, first law. Thus, we cannot judge others based upon what we hear, are told, or even by what we see with our eyes. It is not our place to judge, but only to love others and have compassion for them.
- What is Adultery?

Thus Jesus was following The First Law. He is consciously listening to his Innermost and not condemn the adulterous woman. By writing in the sand he is symbolically indicating that they are basing their conclusion off of beliefs, theories, and dogmas.

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24
“And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.” Matthew 7:26
