For Global Peace with Social Justice in a Sustainable Environment

Vol. 2 in the series: Discovering the Penance of Speech examines the use of speech as a tapas. India has a highly evolved treasure chest of metaphysical terms and expressions. Penance was the closest word we could find to tapas, the Sanskrit word that encapsulates the joyous, determined, and willing sacrifice of selfish interests in the pursuit of truth. Beginning with a personal and candid view on speech, Gandhi's restoration of the power of the word in the political sphere, and Holy Mother Amma's teachings for the use of speech, it moves into a look at some of the different contributions of the world's great faiths, and new discoveries in modern science regarding speech.
