I read a book "Positive words, Powerful results" by Hal Urban.
It is about words.
Hal Urban is a school teacher,so he knows the power of words better than anyone else.
Words are very powerful.They are life changing.
Think before you talk,Once the words are out of your mouth, you don't have control over it.
Thiruvalluvar in Thirukkural (1330 kurals,each of two lines,a Great Litreray work in Tamil language) wrote about words:
1."Using harsh words when you are having nice and kind words is like
eating unriped ones instead of fruits".
2."The Wounds of fire will heal as time passes whereas
the wounds by Tounge won't heal ever".
My friends used to say,you have to be very choosy in what we are talking as the Angels are watching and they will say "Thathastu" means "SO IT BE".
The mantras in sanskrit when you recite them has a magnetic field of power over a radius of atleast 5 miles.They have vibrations.
One of the most powerful mantra is the Pranav mantra "OHM".
As parents,we have to be very careful in our usage of words as the kids will just follow us.
Teachers have huge responsibility of grooming the children,so they have to be very selective.
The book contains five parts.The chapter titles tell us all about the power of words:
Words make us human,
