Buddha Vacana (August 8, 2555)

The Brahmin Vassakara, an important man in Magadha, came to the Lord and said: “Good Gotama, for my part I say this, this is my opinion.  If anyone speaks of what he has seen, heard or sensed, there is no harm in him saying: ‘This is what I saw.  This is what I heard.  This is what I sensed.’ No harm can come from that.

The Lord then replied: “For my part, brahmin, I do not say that everything one has seen, heard or sensed should be spoken of, and nor I do not say it should not be spoken of.  If one speaks and "akusala" states grow, then one should not speakIf one speaks and "kusala" states grow, then one should speak of what one has seen, heard, sensed and understood.

-- A.II,172

Note. "akusal" อกุศล, unprofitable, unhealthy, ill - (aguṇa อคุณะ); "kusala" กุศล, profitable, healthy, well - (guṇa คุณะ)
