Anam Cara, a Modern Prayer Flag


In his book Anam Cara, the Irish writer John O’Donohue writes: “The Celtic understanding of friendship finds its inspiration and culmination in the sublime notion of the anam cara. ‘Anam’ is the Gaelic word for soul; ‘cara’ is the word for friend. So ‘anam cara’ means soul friend. ... When you had an anam cara, your friendship cut across all convention and category. You were joined in an ancient and eternal way with the friend of your soul.”

"One's friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human." [George Santayana]
