Friends

54feb966844cc-0112-bad-apple-spoils-bunch-xlThe friend who takes your wealth,

the friend who renders lip-service,

the friend that flatters,

the friend who brings ruin,

these four the wise behold as enemies,

and avoid them from afar as paths of peril. […]

The friend who is a helpmate, the friend in happiness and woe,

the friend who gives good counsel, the friend who understands

—these four the wise behold as friends and cherish them devotedly

as does a mother her own child.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Sigalovada Sutta

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero.
