Kalyana Mitta



Kalyana Mitta is a word in the Pali language meaning "spiritual friend." One of the Buddha's disciples once said to him: "It seems, venerable sir, that half the holy life is having good spiritual friends." The Buddha replied: "In fact, the whole of the holy life is having good spiritual friends."
