Description

Do you remember that word, kalyanamitta? It means a special kind of friend who likes to help us practice the Supreme Buddha’s teachings. That’s what we’re going to do together today, practice the Supreme Buddha’s teachings. It’s hard to find people in the world to help us practice the Dhamma, so we can be happy knowing that we have found this rare opportunity. It’s so important to have friends like all of you so we can encourage each other to make the effort while we can to learn and live by the Supreme Buddha’s teachings.





You know, when the Supreme Buddha talked about kalyanamitta, he said that of all the people that can be a good friend, the Supreme Buddha is the best. Because without him, we wouldn’t know about the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path. We wouldn’t understand the reason that life is full of problems. Today, we’ll hear about two people. One person gave up the chance to have the Supreme Buddha as a good friend, and one person who took full advantage of her opportunity to learn from him.
