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.
