The Sweetness of Inner Solitude

The Sweetness of Inner Solitude

Having tasted the sweetness of inner solitude and calmness, the one who lives by the Law is free from fear and suffering. It is joy to see such awakened ones, and to live with them in happiness. To travel with the un—awakened makes the journey long and hard and is as painful as traveling with an enemy. But the company of the wise is as pleasant as meeting with friends. Follow the wise, the intelligent, and the awakened. Follow them as the moon follows the path of the stars.

— Dhamapada
