Over the past weeks, a MA study group has been formed to do our master synopsis and studies together. Only 3 of us doing the MA and yet was supported by another two noble friends in the process. Awesome!
To me, it is not just having fun learning together and helping each other but also endorsing Buddha’s “…. Admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is actually the whole of the holy life. When a monk has admirable people as friends, companions, & comrades, he can be expected to develop & pursue the noble eightfold path….” This statement is found in the Upaddha Sutta, SN 45.2.
I am really appreciative and thankful to all my noble friends. I believe that if not for them, I may not be where I am now. To repay all their encouragement, support, guidance, patience and company, I will continue to strive harder! We may separate or part somewhere along the path, but I shall always remember all of you…. yes, anicca and anatta… but my gratitude will carry on till end of this lifetime. For all you know, it was brought forward from previous lifetimes ya…. ☺️
To all my dear, dear noble friends ~ may you be well, happy and peaceful always…
