      Pali - Every few days - [B107]
      Gair/Karunatillake - Chapter 6 �Readings
      Ex. 5 (Part 1 of 1)

      Tameva vaaca.m bhaaseyya - yaay�attaana.m na taapaye;
      pare ca na vihi.mseyya - saa ve vaacaa subhaasitaa.
      Such speech should be spoken � that does not torment
      oneself;
      And does not harm others � this indeed is well-spoken
      speech.

      Piyavaacameva bhaaseyya - yaa vaacaa pa.tinanditaa;
      ya.m anaadaaya paapaani - paresa.m bhaasate piya.m.
      Thus pleasant speech should be spoken � words that are
      welcomed;
      That do not bear evil � that is pleasant speech for
      others.

      �Sacca.m ve amataa vaacaa� - esa dhammo sanantano;
      �sacce atthe ca dhamme ca� - aahu, �santo
      pati.t.thitaa.�
      �Truthful speech is deathless� � this is the eternal
      law;
      �In truth, welfare and doctrine� � they say �good
      people are established�.
