The Buddhist Secrets of Great Friends: 【親友がいない人必見】親友をもつことのメリットデメリット

A 24-year-old woman worries about not having best friends, and Osho Taigu questions “Do you really need best friends?” This woman has 5 or 6 good friends whom she hangs out with, but feels that she doesn’t have trusted best friends. She wants to have her so-called best friend who can give a speech at her wedding. Osho Taigu shares his childhood experience to tell us about comparing the pros and cons of having best friends. He came to his conclusion that “Having best friends could be bad!” Having BFF is a myth, so he suggests for us to have a “Shō yū (勝友 meaning a great friend)” from the Buddhist Scriptures. The “Great Friends” would teach you and give you courage or could be someone you can look up to. It is totally fine if only you consider them as your great friends. Osho’s prescription is to have as many “Shō yū” as possible. He also shares the practical solutions from Buddhist teachings called “Seven Practice of Giving” (無財の七施). You don’t need to have money or power to be able to give. Ask yourself, “What can I do for others? What can I give?” and choose to show your small kindness which can be like sunlight or energy to the people around you. If you try that every day, gradually you will see your great friends coming to you.

24歳の女性の「親友に関する悩み」に対して大愚和尚は、親友が本当に必要なのか、ということを提示されています。この女性は5、6人の友達はいても、心から信じられる親友がいないと感じています。結婚式の場でスピーチをしてくれるような、親友と呼べる人がいなくて悩んでいるのです。大愚和尚は自分の経験を通して、親友がいることのメリットとデメリットを考えたときに、親友がいたら逆に困るという結論に達したそうです。永遠の親友がいるということは親友神話であって、仏教の言葉である「勝友(しょうゆう):優れた友達」を持つことを勧められます。自分が一方的に思っているだけでも、勇気をもらえるような人、尊敬できる部分を持っている人を、勝友としてたくさん持つことが今回の処方箋です。さらに、仏教に基づいた誰にでもできる優れた友を持つための秘訣、「無財の七施」について学ぶことができます。お金や能力がなくても誰にでも与えられる、この七つの施しを実践するには、自分ができることの中で何を人に与えられるか、何ができるか、ということを、日々小さな気遣いとして周りの人に光やエネルギーとして与えていくことです。それを少しでも心がけると、自然に勝友が増えてくるはずです。
