IMS Turns 45: Join the Online Party, February 14!

Ananda said to the Blessed One, “This is half of the holy life, lord:
admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie.”

“Don’t say that, Ananda. Don’t say that.
Admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is actually the WHOLE of the holy life.”
– The Buddha
(45th verse of the Samyutta Nikaya)
