 Buddha Vacana

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 speak.  If one speaks and kusala states grow, then one should speak of what one has seen, heard, sensed and understood.”

-- A.II,172

< akusala อกุศล wicked, evil;   kusala กุศล righteous, meritorious>

But please call me "sr". I am not อาจารย์ (of anything/anyone) and I do not wish to be (even called).

It is enough for me to be a fellow traveller -- going about this life as best as I can. And I think you are too.

  • Reading this diary recognized me the explanation of "ปิยวาจา": พูดในสิ่งที่เป็นจริง เป็นประโยชน์ และเป็นที่พอใจ
  • Thanks "khun sr" for this worthy diary.
