Buddhism & Our Spiritual Successors

The ultimate and most glorious of human relationships is the relationship of the spiritual successors,

Even animals have a relationship of parent and child,

There are animals that share partnerships similar to marriage,

And even those that enjoy friendship,

However, the relationship of mentor and disciple, of spiritual successors, exists only among human beings.
