【The Varieties of Karma】 – Offensive speech
"Offensive speech," another term for it is evil speech, evil speech. That is, the words are very coarse, very coarse, very boorish. So this “offensive” means you have an offensive mindset and you intend to harm others, to harm others. Therefore, when you are doing this, not only are your words boorish, they also harm others. Hence, this [i.e. the basis of offensive speech] is a "living being in whom you can engender hostility." This is something that can make others feel uncomfortable or even hostile, something that can make them feel upset, just like that. "Attitude" [意乐] is our mental state. This is the same as before. Perception and afflictions [i.e. 2 of the 3 aspects of “attitude”] have been explained earlier. "Motivation" [i.e. 等起, 3rd aspect of “attitude”], motivation is such that when you are in a situation like this, why do you do it? [Due to the] "desire to speak in an offensive manner." That is, your mind just enjoys doing this, enjoys doing this. Sometimes it might be intentional, sometimes it might be unintentional. It's more difficult to avoid the unintentional ones. Once you've successfully nurtured this habit, it's very terrible. As soon as you open your mouth, [your speech] will be like this.
