Buddhism and Friendship
The author invites us to develop a wide and deep understanding of spiritual friendship, encompassing relationships not only with teachers but also with our peers. Buddhism and Friendship offers practical ways for us to cultivate, deepen and extend our friendships, so that they can inspire and shape our spiritual lives. Buddhism and Friendship explores the riches of intimacy, respect, trust and mutual support that friendship at its best can bestow. Developing our relationships with companions on the spiritual path, we can cultivate an other-regarding outlook that takes us beyond ourselves... and perhaps even to wisdom.
