Verses [On What] Can [Be] Spoken
[What] departs [from a] sūtra [by] one word, can become [what] Māra says. [The] Buddha’s words [and the] Patriarchs’ teachings, must not [be] mistakenly spoken.
[If] having doubts, [they] can [be] asked, [but there] should not [be] slanderous speak. [With the] Dharma’s principles yet [to be] clarified, [there] must not [be] careless speak.
