Sentences Containing 'inveigh'

After the tragedy, the ancient comedy was brought in, which had the liberty to inveigh against personal vices; being therefore through this her freedom and liberty of speech of very good use and effect, to restrain men from pride and arrogancy.
The sutras which inveigh against meat-eating include the Mahayana version of the "Nirvana Sutra," the "Shurangama Sutra," the "Brahmajala Sutra," the "Angulimaliya Sutra," the "Mahamegha Sutra," and the "Lankavatara Sutra," as well as the Buddha's comments on the negative karmic effects of meat consumption in the "Karma Sutra".
