Friendship with virtuous people.

From Prasnottara Ratna Malika book

When one is associated with a Saadhu or Mahatmas, automatically without our knowledge our mind cultivates humility which eventually leads to positive changes in our life. Hence Saadhu sangha (association of Sadhus) is extremely important to keep our Ego in control. Unfortunately, what is more prevalent today is that people want to associate with others who are of the same level of wealth and fame. In these kinds of congregations, there is only mutual praising of people for no reason, similar to how a Camel would praise a Donkey for its voice and the Donkey in return will praise the Camel for its beauty. Such a fragile relationship or association lasts only as long as the praising lasts. There could be a time in our life, when we may not have anyone or be ignored. It is in these kinds of situations, how we handle or carry ourselves. This directly relates to the level of our self-estimation.
