Spiritual friendship – La compañía espiritual


 
Amida Buddha

One day Ananda, who had been thinking deeply about things for a while, turned to the Buddha and exclaimed: "Lord, I’ve been thinking- spiritual friendship is at least half of the spiritual life!" The Buddha replied: "Say not so, Ananda, say not so. Spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life!" – Samyutta Nikaya, Verse 2

Un día, Ananda, que había estado sumido en la meditación sobre varias cosas, se dirigió a Buda y exclamó: "Señor, he estado pensando que la compañía espiritual debe ser al menos la mitad de la vida espiritual". El Buda respondió: "No hables así, Ananda, no hables así. La compañía espiritual es el todo de la vida espiritual." – Samyutta Nikaya, verso 2
