Spoken words


The value of every human being lies in their capability to purify their thoughts, words and deeds.

The three instruments you have – mind, tongue and hand, must be sanctified to raise you to the highest level.

A person is judged by their spoken words. The spoken word, though it may be short and appears to be only a sound, has in it, the power of an atom bomb.

When a word of hope is spoken to a person sunk in despair, it charges them with elephant’s strength.

When a word of calumny is uttered to a person who is extremely strong and happy, it can lead them to slump on the ground overcome by sorrow.

Words can confer strength; they can drain one’s energy too.

Words can win friends; words can turn friends into enemies as well; they can elevate or lower an individual.

You must learn the habit of making your words sweet, soft and pleasant.

-Adapted from a Satya Sai Baba discourse
