Thai translation required (Buddhadasa Bhikkhu card)

Postby retrofuturist » Mon Jan 12, 2009 9:13 am

Greetings,

Just wondering if someone might be able to translate the following (I think it's Thai) for me?

I was at a second hand book shop a year or so flicking through the books and found this Buddhadasa Bhikkhu card inserted into one of the books there... so I transferred it into the book that I was buying.

:reading:

Metta,
Retro. :)

Interesting verse about worldly matters but contrary to the Buddha's view of true friendship & the kalyanamitta.
