Bhikkhus, in regard to external factors, I do not perceive another single factor so helpful as good friendship to a bhikkhu who is a learner, who has not attained perfection but lives aspiring for the supreme security from bondage. Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu who has a good friend abandons what is unwholesome and develops what is wholesome.

When a bhikkhu has good friends, And is reverential and respectful, Doing what his friends advise, Clearly comprehending and mindful, He may progressively attain The destruction of all fetters.
