This is penance as far as talking is concerned. Besides that, one should not talk nonsense. When speaking in spiritual circles, one's statements must be upheld by the scriptures. One should at once quote from scriptural authority to back up what he is saying. At the same time, such talk should be very pleasurable to the ear. By such discussions, one may derive the highest benefit and elevate human society. There is a limitless stock of Vedic literature, and one should study this. This is called penance of speech. #/p# #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_15"#TEXT 15#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#अनुद्वेगकरं वाक्यं सत्यं प्रियहितं च यत् ।#/dd# #dd#स्वाध्यायाभ्यसनं चैव वाङ्मयं तप उच्यते ॥१५॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#anudvega-karaṁ vākyaṁ#/dd# #dd#satyaṁ priya-hitaṁ ca yat#/dd# #dd#svādhyāyābhyasanaṁ caiva#/dd# #dd#vāṅ-mayaṁ tapa ucyate#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#anudvega-karam#/i#—not agitating; #i#vākyam#/i#—words; #i#satyam#/i#—truthful; #i#priya#/i#—dear; #i#hitam#/i#—beneficial; #i#ca#/i#—also; #i#yat#/i#—which; #i#svādhyāya#/i#—of Vedic study; #i#abhyasanam#/i#—practice; #i#ca#/i#—also; #i#eva#/i#—certainly; #i#vāk-mayam#/i#—of the voice; #i#tapaḥ#/i#—austerity; #i#ucyate#/i#—is said to be. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#Austerity of speech consists in speaking words that are truthful, pleasing, beneficial, and not agitating to others, and also in regularly reciting Vedic literature. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# #p#One should not speak in such a way as to agitate the minds of others.
