Students of Budo are encouraged to reflect on the power of their words.
Speech, when used carelessly, tends to promulgate suffering.
Students work to eradicate exaggerations, lies, detrimental comments and frivolity in speech.
We are taught to listen with awareness when we speak, mindful of the weight that our words carry.
The more you talk and think about it,
The further away you wander from the truth.
3rd patriarch of zen Sengtau.
Think twice and say nothing.
Most people point a finger when they should be lending a hand.
At the point where you want to judge and criticize, focus inside.
