What to Say?

The Anhaya Sutra categorizes what a buddha does not say:

1. Words known to be unfactual, un-true, unbeneficial, unendearing, and disagreeable to others.

2. Words known to be factual and true, yet unbeneficial, unendearing, and disagreeable to others.

3.  Words known to be factual, true, and beneficial, yet unendearing and disagreeable to others, because it is not yet the proper time to say them.

4. Words known to be unfactual, untrue, and unbeneficial, yet endearing and agreeable to others.

5. Words known to be factual and true but unbeneficial, yet endearing and agreeable to others.
