Bodhisattvas’ (Compassion) Practices -34

 34

Because harsh words disturb others’ minds and cause the Bodhisattva’s conduct to deteriorate, abandoning harsh speech which is unpleasant to others is the Bodhisattvas’ practice.

Modern Translation 

A Bodhisattva’s Daily Practice

(34) 

A bodhisattva’s practice is to rid ourselves of harsh language
Displeasing to the minds of others,
Because harsh words disturb others’ minds
And cause our bodhisattva ways of behavior to decline.

 – The Berzin Archives Thirty-seven Bodhisattva Practices 
(Bodhisattva  — In Tibetan Buddhism, a Bodhisattva is anyone who is motivated by compassion and seeks enlightenment not only for him/herself but also for everyone…)
