।।17.15।। जो वाक्य (भाषण) उद्वेग उत्पन्न करने वाला नहीं है? जो प्रिय? हितकारक और सत्य है तथा वेदों का स्वाध्याय अभ्यास वाङ्मय (वाणी का) तप कहलाता है।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna states that what is known as austerity of speech is svadhaya or the recitation of Vedic mantras after first being duly initiated by the Vaisnava spiritual master. Words which consist totally of truth yet do not offend those spoken to and which are imbued with sweet and pleasing words that are inspiring and beneficial are austerities of speech in sattva guna the mode of goodness.
