Friendship with the Lovely

[1][bodh] THUS have I heard:

Once the Exalted One was staying near Sāvatthī.

Then the Exalted One addressed the monks,
saying:

"Monks."

"Yes, lord," replied those monks to the Exalted One.

The Exalted One said:

"There is one condition, monks, that is most useful for the arising of the Ariyan eightfold way.

What is that condition?

It is friendship with the lovely.

Of the monk who is a friend of the lovely, monks,
it may be expected that he will cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way.

And how, monks, does a monk
who is a friend of the lovely
cultivate
and make much of
the Ariyan eightfold way?

Herein a monk cultivates right view,
that is based on seclusion,
that is based on dispassion,
on cessation,
that ends in self-surrender.

He cultivates right aim,
that is based on seclusion,

the Ariyan eightfold way.
