      Speak Up for the Truth



      If he does not speak up, others know him not;

      he is just a wise man mixed up with fools.
      But if he speaks about and teaches the immortal (timeless truth), others will know him.
      So let him light up the Dharma, let him lift the sage's banner high.

      -The Buddha (Anguttara Nikaya II:51)
       
      Commentary (1): The Buddha wished his Dhamma to be as widespread as possible so that all could learn to live in happiness and peace, and he expected all of his disciples to share with others what he had shared with them. -Ven. Dhammika
       
      Commentary (2): One would expect one who lifts the banner of the truth of the Dhamma to first and foremost speak up for the truths of everyday life. For how can one be expected to deliver the ultimate truth if one cannot be truthful over the trivial? -Shen Shi'an
