Even one encounter with righteous persons is the most desirable thing and it is well known that friendship with such persons is even better. An encounter with a righteous person will never be fruitless and so one should try and stay in places where the righteous dwell.

– Savitri, Mahabharata

It is commonly understood that you will become like the people you surround yourself with, if you want to be a basketball player, or an actor, the wise choice would be to surround oneself with people in those particular professions. Savitri, the wise woman speaking to Yama in the Mahabharata explains that those who desire righteousness should seek out others who want the same and form friendships.

Look at the people in your life who stand for values such as integrity, honesty, goodwill, honesty, compassion and honour them. By working with and helping these people, they can help so many others.
