Wise Speech

In Dewdrops on a Lotus Leaf, Zen Poems of Ryokan I came across an entry titled My Precepts.

Zen Master Ryokan lists around forty points to remember about right speech. Such points as, not speak of things of which you have no knowledge and not to use sugary speech. The whole list contains good reminders, which I’ll be keeping in mind during this coming week.

When and if I have the time I’ll write down the list in instalments, for readers to contemplate each day.
