“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.”
– SN 45.2, Upaddha Sutta
While this sutta verse was addressed to the monks, the same holds true to lay people. In Buddhism, a spiritual friend is known as Kalyanamitta and when translated, means ‘Friendship with the Lovely’. It is not just having spiritual friends that is the whole of the Holy Life, but our affiliation, our intimacy with those who practise to realise the Ultimate Truth.
Like-minded companions support our efforts in the spiritual to be freed from grief and to experience sustainable happiness. At Buddhist Fellowship, we recognise the importance of community.
Apart from the privilege of attending exclusive retreats and Dhamma courses, get discounts for merchandises, the benefits of becoming a member of Buddhist Fellowship goes beyond the tangibles. Here you can be more intimate with other fellow members, the culture, the ad hoc gatherings, making the practice a lot more enjoyable!
Why only attend Sunday talks when you can be part of something more fulfilling? 🙂
