Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:


               
Unique Unity:
            Friendship is really the GREATEST!
            Friendship motivates the entire Noble Life! 
            Friendship is a Synergistic Social
Symbiosis:

 

            Buddha once said:
            Follow only the Good and Pure Ones,
            Associate only with the Clever Ones,
            To learn the Truth from these Nobles
            gives an advantage like nothing else!

            To follow the fools and thereby
            copy & choose the wrong ways,
            to not know any Good Friends,
            is causing only sad Misery!

            As if one strings rotten fish on a
grass straw,
            this very same grass will soon smell putrid too...
            Exactly so with anyone, who follows a fool!

            Or as if one wraps up perfume in a common leaf,
            this same simple leaf will soon smell sweet too!
            Exactly so with anybody, who follows a Noble...
