Thanksgiving, Dharma & Spiritual Friends

As the thanksgiving weekend completes, a few thoughts on Dharma, Gratitude and Spiritual Friends ~ from our spiritual friends we receive the Dharma. We  have not discovered or invented the Dharma. We have received it as  a free gift from our spiritual friends, from the Buddha downwards.  In the Dhammapada the Buddha says, 'The greatest  of all gifts is the gift of the Dharma.' The greater the gift..., the greater the gratitude we should feel. We should not only  feel that gratitude in our hearts; we should give expression to it  in words and deeds. We can do this in three ways: by singing the praises  of our spiritual friends, by practising the Dharma they have given  us, and by passing on that Dharma to others to the best of our ability. ~~ I give thanks for my Spiritual Friends, love and peace
