SILA (ETHICS) / SAMMA VACA (WISE SPEECH)
“Harsh speech will disturb others’ minds and cause the practice of those who wish to be bodhisattvas to decline. So to abandon harsh speech, which is disagreeable to others – this is the practice of the bodhisattva.”~ Source: #34 – The Thirty-Seven Practices of the Bodhisattva by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo (commentary by His Holiness the Dalai Lama)
“The practice of all the bodhisattvas is to avoid harsh words,~ Source: #34 – The Thirty-Seven Practices of All the Bodhisattvas by Gyalse Tokme Zangpo
Which others might find unpleasant or distasteful,
Since abusive language upsets the minds of others,
And thereby undermines a bodhisattva’s conduct.”
