In What Way is spiritual friendship the whole of the spiritual life? How does it support our spiritual growth? Why do so many discussions of Buddhism overlook it? In Buddhism and Friendship Subhuti considers these questions by delving into teachings and stories from the Buddhist scriptures as well as by drawing on Western thinkers and personal experience of friendship on the Buddhist path. The author invites us to develop a wide and deep understanding of spiritual friendship, encompassing relationships not only with teachers but also with our peers. Buddhism and Friendship offers practical ways for us to cultivate, deepen and extend our friendships, so that they can inspire and shape our spiritual lives. Buddhism and Friendship explores the riches of intimacy, respect, trust and mutual support that friendship at its best can bestow. Developing our relationships with companions on the spiritual path, we can cultivate an other-regarding outlook that takes us beyond ourselves...and perhaps even to wisdom.

Subhuti joined the Western Buddhist Order (WBO) in 1973 and has since devoted himself to the practice and teaching of Buddhism. Since 2000, he has been Chairman of the College of Public Preceptors, to which the founder of the WBO, Sangharakshita, handed on his responsibilities. Subhuti spends part of each year in India, leading retreats and giving lectures and is the author of five other books, including Bringing Buddhism to the West. Subhamati has worked as a university administrator in London until becoming involved in Buddhism. He currently works as an assistant to Subhuti.
