Reflections on Sangha

"Admirable friendship, admirable companionship, admirable camaraderie is actually the whole of the holy life." β€”The Buddha, Upaddha Sutta

Please share your reflections ...


Sangha β€” initially referring to nuns and monks in the monastic order but today encompassing the larger community of Buddhist practitioners β€” is a central pillar of Buddhism.  One of the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha), Sangha has been responsible for sharing and propagating the teachings, initially in oral form, in an uninterrupted fashion to the present day.

At a higher level, Sangha is the community that supports our practice β€” our teachers, benefactors, and spiritual friends as well as the institutions that support us on our spiritual path.

In this evening's guided meditation and talk, we are invited to reflect on what Sangha means to each of us.


There will be full meditation instructions offered, making this session suitable for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners.
