BEING MINDFUL OF OUR SPEECH IS AS GOOD AS GUARDING OUR MINDS

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Most of our negative karma is derived from our speech.  There is a traditional Chinese saying, “misfortune finds its way out through the mouth; illness finds its way in through the mouth”.  Hence, being mindful of our speech is as good as guarding our minds. 

 

As Buddhist practitioners, 

When we do not know, do not speak irresponsibly 

When we do know, do not speak too much   

When we are troubled, do not speak hastily

When we have nothing to say, say nothing 

  

Guard our speech and diligently perform recitations – that is the way to achieve a healthy mind and body to follow the spiritual path of Amitabha Buddha.
