A Stranger Who Uplifts

A stranger whose company uplifts you is as good as family.  On the other hand, a near and dear one whose company demeans you is no better than a stranger.  A disease though it is born in our own body is unpleasant.  But a medicine that grows in a forest is beneficial.

परोऽपि हितवान् बन्धु: बन्धुरप्यहित: परः /  अहितो देहजो व्याधिः हितम् आरण्यम् औषधम् //
