    The one Hundred and fouth of 108 Gates Of Dharma Illumination

    104) The One Hundred and Fourth Gate; Attainment of the state of unrestricted speech

    Attainment of the state of unrestricted speech is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we cause all living beings to rejoice. (Nishijima/Cross)

    Attaining unhindered understanding is a gate of realizing dharma; it causes all sentient beings to rejoice. (Tanahashi) — See Gate 101

    Gate Gatha:
    May we, together with all buddhas;
    Attain the state of unrestricted speech
    That we may cause all living beings to rejoice.

    Reflection Prompt:

    Having attained the state of unrestricted speech, what is it that causes all living beings to rejoice?

    Capping Verse:
    The right words spoken
    Or withheld
    May free all beings

        Thank you Shokai

        I think Aprati has it right.

        Knowing when to speak and knowing when to not speak. Sometimes silence is enough.
