And what is right speech? Abstaining from lying, from divisive speech, from abusive speech, & from idle chatter: This is called right speech.

The benefit of not having an original canon is that it makes the results of the practice, rather than its "sacredness" or "holiness", the determining factor of its validity, and offsets the tendency to worship or develop strong emotional attachments to a practice that was intended to be just a tool to be picked up, used, and let go of.
"Silence gives answers"
