satyaṃ brūyāt

satyaṃ brūyāt priyaṃ brūyāt na brūyāt satyamapriyam |

priyaṃ ca nānṛtaṃ brūyād eṣa dharmaḥ sanātanaḥ ||

 

Speak the truth, speak what is pleasant to others. Do not tell truth which is not pleasant (which is harmful) (similarly) even though pleasant, don’t speak falsehood, this is Dharma.
