The Arising Of The Sun

Just as the dawn is the forerunner, the herald of the arising of the sun - so too, friendship with the beautiful is the forerunner, the herald of the arising of the Noble Eightfold Path. When one is a friend of the beautiful, it may be expected that he will cultivate and develop the Noble Eightfold Path. (S.V.29)

Yes, I fully agreed. I realized some aspect of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Noble Truth due to my interaction with some friends.

1 person is especially important, she holds a special place in my heart and I am glad that I knew her.

May she be well and happy.
