[Summary: Note from Littlebang speaker and key member David Holmes on kinds of Friends (kalyanamitta in Pali) in Dhamma]
Things are, indeed, getting a little too quiet on the littlbang horizon and people stop looking if there is nothing new on the site to interest them, so what we need to do is encourage a few more on-going blogs to keep people interested and thinking:
One of the things I say almosy every day to someone is that there are four kinds of friends.
1.There are the kind of friends with whom you dine and drink and joke and talk nonsense and enjoy gossip, in the course of seeking sensual pleasures.
2. There are the kind of friends with whom you make profit for your own or other’s benefit.
3. There are the kind of friends whom you can trust under any circumstances.
4. There are the kind of friends with whom you talk Dhamma and only the benefits of Dhamma.
What kind of friend are you?
And with what kind of friends do you asscoiate?
