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

Hi pegembara,

I'm not clear what the "target" of your quotation is:

1. The criticisms of Bhikkhu Bodhi, Ven Nyanaponika and/or the commentaries on the thread Tiltbillings linked to?
2. Ven Nanananda's criticisms of the commentaries, Ven Nyanaponika, Bhikkhu Bodhi, and others?
3. Ven Nanananda's criticisms of Ven Nanavira and his followers?
4. Bhikkhu Yogananda's comments?
5. Tiltbilling's posting of Bhikkhu Yogananda's comments?

Can someone provide some examples of things that are right but not true?

Examples of things that are true but not right -?from the Theravada viewpoint.

Lin Chi Zen Master said, “If you meet the Buddha, kill the Buddha. If you meet a Patriarch, kill the Patriarch.” Zen Master Seung Sahn says that in this life we must all kill three things: First we must kill our parents. Second, we must kill the Buddha. And lastly, we must kill him! http://www.kwanumzen.org/1997/kill-the-buddha/

One freezing winter day, Tan-hsia took the wooden Buddha statue from the altar in the temple in which he was staying, and used it to make a fire. The resident priest came by and saw him doing it. "How can you burn up my Buddha?" he asked. "To get at the sacred remains," Tan-hsia answered and poked at the coals with a stick. "How could there be any sacred remains in my wooden Buddha?" the resident priest asked. "Then let's burn the two others too," said Tan-hsia. http://primejunta.blogspot.com/2011/02/ ... uddha.html
