The Buddha has encouraged us to associate with, learn the dhamma from, and emulate our noble friends. But who is a noble friend? He or she is one who will lead us towards the noble eight-fold path and support us all the way. Such a person would have wisdom and compassion, both anchored by faith in the triple gem. Do you have such a noble friend? How would you know if you did? What are the marks of a noble friend?
