Happy Friendship Day!
Saturday August 2, 2014
Friendship Day is celebrated on the first Sunday of August, which falls on 3rd August this year. Let us find out what Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan and Pujya Niruma had to say about the special bond of Friendship.
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to say that, “What should friends be like? The kind who live amicably (having a spirit of friendliness).” For example, if one friend is doing his lessons then the other will finish that friend’s chores. If one person is doing a chore, then the other will do the next chore. No-one would have to direct a person, they live in harmony.
Pujya Niruma also used to say that, “If [you] want the friendship to last then friends have to mutually take adjustments. Friendship lasts only if both friends let go of certain things that they dislike about each other. But if we insist that our friend should only do things the way we like, then gradually the friendship will break.”
So if we do not want our friendship to break we should become the kind of friend that we would like to have.
