What is the real meaning of true and untrue?

That which is helpful to others is true.

—Kambala, Alokamala v 37

A statement endowed with five factors is well-spoken, not ill-spoken.

It is blameless and  not faulted by knowledgeable people. Which five?

It is spoken at the right time. It is spoken in truth.

It is spoken affectionately. It is spoken beneficially.

It is spoken with a mind of good-will.

—Buddha Shakyamuni
