True Friendship

HHKR-5x7MSooner or later, you will have to part from even your dearest friends. But one friend will never leave you, even though you may never be aware of its existence. It is the Buddha-nature, pure awareness.

You begin to discover it by listening to the teachings of a spiritual master. The ties will deepen as you cultivate sustained mental calm and profound insight into reality. In the end, you will discover that it has always been near you and will always be with you. This is the truest friendship you can ever cultivate.

—Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

    I always told “myself” – ‘Be your own best friend.” This is the friend I was referring to, always there, through all forms. Dilgo is such an inspiration to me. Thank you, Friend of all Friends! cc
