Follow The Wise

How joyful to look upon the awakened
And to keep the company with the wise

Follow then the shinning ones
The wise
The awakened
The loving
For they know how to work and forebear

But if you cannot find friend
or master to go with you
Travel on alone
Like a king who has given away his kingdom
Like an elephant in the forest

If the traveler can find
A Virtuous and Wise companion
Let him go with him joyfully
And overcome the dangers of the way

Follow them
As the moon follows the path of the stars

Holy Friendship
