When your conscience tells you that something is wrong, you should refrain from doing it. You betray your true humanness when you fail to act up to the dictates of your conscience. When one’s words are in accord with one’s thoughts, they become Sathya (truth). When the spoken word is translated into action, it becomes Dharma (right action). The basis for both truth and right action is the Antaratma(conscience), the Indwelling Spirit. The thoughts that emanate from the Antaratma or conscience should find expression in speech. If the inner feelings are different from what is spoken, can the words be treated as truth or untruth? Clearly, it is untruth. When one’s action is not in accordance with his words, it is adharma (unrighteous action). Truth and right action are expressions of the promptings from the depths of one’s conscience.
