Science of Speech
Pujya Niruma describes the qualities required for powerful and persuasive speech, explaining that the quality of ego behind one's speech is of utmost importance.
Words have a tremendous impact in this world and they are a necessary medium to carry out worldly interactions with ease. As long as the spoken language remains in normality, only then is it beneficial. If it goes above or below normality, then such speech becomes harmful to others and to the self.
Param Pujya Dadashri has unfolded the science that explains the basis on which and the reason for sweet and bitter speech. When does bitter speech against any person come forth? Bitter speech or hurtful words come forth because one has negative opinions for that person. When the underlying opinions are washed and cleared, the speech improves and becomes sweet.
At times you may even think that not saying anything or suppressing your speech is a good idea, but that is not a solution. It is the same as compressing a spring, when the pressure that is built is released it can create an explosion. Instead you should try to reach an amicable solution. At the same time keep the inner intent that you do not want to hurt anybody with your words. You should say things that you would like to hear yourself. Project on to the world, as you would like. Whatever words you throw at others will eventually come back at you. You should speak such that when the words are returned to you, they are not harmful.
