Comes from the Chinese character 言 (언) [eon] and is translated as a word, speech.
The Word has the power to create, to guide the whole nation and states. The Word of the Bible, the Koran, the Bhagavad Gita, the Torah, the Mahabharata have guided humanity and shaped cultural spheres for centuries.
If a person is confident and knows that Heaven will be with him wherever he goes, his heart will have the power to directly influence those who listen to him.
History has shown that those who diligently pass on the Word will eventually reap the rewards of their work. That is why the Word is important!
Every culture attributes an essential role to the Word, and this can be seen in folk proverbs.
For example, the Korean proverb “발 없는 말이 천리 간다” [pal omneun mari cheolli kanda] translated as “the word without feet will pass a thousand li.” The approximate English equivalent of the proverb is “A word spoken is past recalling.”
There are many other proverbs about the Word:
“Many words hurt more than swords”
“The pen is mightier than the sword.”
So, let’s be careful with our words!
