This paper argues that western instructors of public speaking courses, along with those in the forensics community, can benefit from the insights offered by the eastern tradition. Examining the Indian religious text, the "Bhagavad Gita," reveals insights that can change the way message construction, audience empathy, and speaker motivation are covered in western courses. The ideal use of public discourse ceases to be solely a success-related instrument, and instead becomes a means of sharing one's being with others. (Contains 23 references.) (Author/RS)
