There is an old saying that the best way to get love is by giving love to others.
Similarly, if we want friends and companions, being a good friend to others is a good way to begin.
There is a mantra for producing the qualityy of friendship in oneself.
The mantra is one of the “twelve great qualities of the sun”.
Om Hraum Mitraya Namaha
The intention of this mantra is the creation of friendship in a very special sense: when you become friend to everyone, everyone will view you as a friend.
I took this picture as I was walking early in the morning along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
Those two friends were talking behind drying clothes, there was a nice game of light though the red fabric that I wanted to catch with my camera.
This picture is for my friends.
