From “The Thirty Seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva“, verse 6, Relying on a Spiritual Friend.
“When in reliance on someone, your defects wane and your positive qualities grow like the waxing moon. To cherish such a spiritual friend even more than your own body is the practice of a bodhisattva.”
