"Monks, a statement endowed with five factors is well-spoken, not ill-spoken. It is blameless & unfaulted by knowledgeable people. Which five?

It is spoken at the right time. It is spoken in truth. It is spoken affectionately. It is spoken beneficially. It is spoken with a mind of good-will."


"Vaca Sutta: A Statement" (AN 5.198), translated from the Pali by Thanissaro Bhikkhu. Access to Insight (Legacy Edition), 3 July 2010, link

    In another video Thich Nhat Hanh explains that - as we listen to the chanting of the name of the Bodhisattva of compassion - we can concentrate on sending compassion to ourselves, then to the people around us, and then the world

    I am so free
    because I can be me
    look at the clouds at play
    passing over everyday
    inside the sky so blue
    immense, spacious and true
    I’ll be tall like the sky
    wide enough to embrace what’s inside
    just like the clouds passing by
    flying high in the grand open sky
    everything around me will be loved, embraced and peacefully free
    everything inside me will be loved, embraced and peacefully free
    I am so free
    because I can be me
    look at the clouds at play
    passing over everyday
    inside the sky so blue
    immense, spacious and true
    I’ll be tall like the sky<...See more
