Buddha’s Teaching of laying our life for other friends

Besides the Jataka later cult Buddha did first say that.

It seems letting go of attachment was his earliest teaching.

In suttas there also Husbands that either want to be a monk or stay celibate laypersons and offers the wife(s) , the possibility to get another husband or looks for a husband for them.

I don’t know of a situation that I would have to be brave enough to lay down my life for other friends.

Would you?

This makes me remember what Jesus said :joy:
