Three Perspectives On the Practice of Spiritual Friendship

by Various

Three short talks on the theme of spiritual friendship that flow beautifully into one another: beginning with the Buddha and Kalyana Mitrata, moving on to our horizontal friendships and our working ground for self-transcendence, through to the arising of the Bodhicitta through collective spiritual practice.

Talk given at Aryaloka Buddhist Center, November 2010
