images (7)The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak step-by-step.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak explaining the sequence of cause and effect.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak out of compassion.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak not for the purpose of material reward.’

The Dharma should be taught with the thought, ‘I will speak without disparaging myself or others.’

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Udayi Sutra
