Today begins the fourth and final installment of Vishvapani Blomfield’s retreat on Right Speech. In “Communicating with Harmony,” Vishvapani reflects on the importance of practicing speech that is conducive to harmony, and refraining from malicious, slanderous speech. With the election season upon us and the heated political discussion that that entails, bringing awareness to our communication takes on an even greater importance. Using our motivation as a touchstone, we should examine it repeatedly in order to communicate truthfully without engaging in unnecessarily divisive speech.
