Day four of Paryushan 2011 - 'MAUN DIWAS' alias - 'SPEECH RESTRAINT DAY' celeberated at South Kolkata Terapanth Bhawan in pious presence of Sadhvi Kanakshri Ji.

Addressing a large gathering of lay followers, Sadhvi Kanakshri Ji said- " a man has got a number of forms of power. the strength of speech is one important of them. One must be prudent in using this power. Limited, sweet and soft words are taken forgranted. So one must learn how to speak, when to speak and how to speak effectively. One must not speak lie, arrogantly and loose temper. One must learn to stay balanced and keep quiet in adverse circumstances. At the same time, restraint of speech helps protect inner strength and energy to move towards liberation." Sadhvi Madhulata Ji said - "restraint of speech is important for spiritual awakening as well as for daily behaviour and interaction with people. What is important is that when to speak and how much to speak."
