"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

Dear jhana.achariya

Thank you for your expansive responses.

'The Blessed One is the Teacher, I am a disciple. He is the one who knows, not I." -

DN1 would have been the first text I would have pointed, but at thisa point I do not have time to rumage through the suttas, but yours is an interesting question that is worth considering.
