绮语

◎ 什么叫“绮语”?

 

◎ WHAT IS LOOSE SPEECH?

所说的话非常不正当,有的说某某女人如何如何,或者说某家如何如何,绮语所说的话近于邪,不正当的话。

 

Loose speech is crude or lewd speech, such as talking about how women (or men) behave, or gossiping, and so forth.

 

“妄言”就是打妄语。

 

Lying means not telling the truth.

 

“恶口”就是骂人,骂人就是造口业。

 

Harsh speech refers to scolding people, which creates mouth karma.

 

“两舌”,一个人怎么会长两个舌头呢?这不是生了两个舌头,是这个人说两种话,对甲就说乙如何如何,再对乙说甲如何如何,互相挑拨离间,这就是两舌。

 

Divisive speech means being double-tongued in the sense that one back-bites and causes schisms. Such a person tells A about B and then B about A, trying to split them up. That is how divisive speech works.
