Title: Hiri Sutta: Conscience
Summary: url=index.html#snp.2.03.than What is a true friend.
PTS: Sn 253-257
Hiri Sutta: Conscience
translated from the Pali by
Alternate translation: Ireland
One who, flouting, despising a sense of conscience, saying, “I am your friend,” but not grasping what he could do [to help]:
know him as "Not my friend."
among friends, speaks endearing words to which he doesn't conform,
the wise recognize as speaking without doing.
He's not a friend who's always wary, suspecting a split, focusing just on your weakness. But him on whom you can depend, like a child on its parent's breast:
that's a true friend whom others can't split from you.
Carrying one's manly burden, the fruits & rewards develop the conditions that make for joy, the bliss that brings praise.
Drinking the nourishment,
of seclusion & calm, one is freed from evil, devoid
refreshed with the nourishment of rapture in the Dhamma.(1)
