“Just as the dawn is the forerunner

of the arising of the sun,

so true friendship is

the forerunner of the arising

of the noble eightfold path.”

~~ The Buddha

This is dedicated to some very loving and loyal friends who have been standing by me and supporting me during difficult times.  Thank you for reminding me of what is important… right speech, right mindfulness, right intentions, right livelihood, etc…

May the light of friendship and true compassion stand steadfast in Mara’s presence.

With each breath, I am grateful to you and the interbeing of our existence.  To:  AM, KS, JH, MM, DS, EH, and the Dharma teachers and my breath, constant companions in all weather and all times.

Metta, Jennifer
