The concept of "right speech"


"And what, monks, is Right Speech? Refraining from lying, refraining from slander, refraining from harsh speech, refraining from frivolous speech. This is called Right Speech."

--Mahasatipatthana Sutta: The Greater Discourse on the Foundations of Mindfulness

So in a sense "Right speech" is more than just "no lying"...

May the force be with you
