Abandon misleading friends

When seeing your master or teacher perform services with respect.
Towards a person having the eye of doctrine and towards sentient beings who are beginners develop the recognition of them as teachers.
When seeing any sentient beings, develop the recognition of them as parents and children. Abandon misleading friends and rely on virtuous spiritual companions.
