Talking disturbs the stillness of the mind.
If talking is not required, then do not talk.
If it is required then only use the minimum of words, and all said must be absolutely true.
Lying leads to an influx of Bad Karma.
Consider the person who lies and lives in fear of being exposed.
To support one lie he has to utter a hundred more.
He becomes caught up in a tangled web of lies
And is seen as untrustworthy and unreliable.
Think before you speak and remember the old saying…
A smart person knows what to say,
A wise person knows whether or not to say it!
