In Buddhism, the sangha is the free association of developing individuals choosing to help each other along the path. In What is the Sangha? Sangharakshita suggests that to explore the nature of spiritual community is also to examine what makes us true individuals.
And finally, if you’re not attending a Sangha Day event at your local centre, you may be interested to know that The Buddhist Centre website is holding an online celebration, May Our Communication Be Sangha.
‘This year’s International Sangha Day celebration focuses on communication because communication is a crucial part of the practice and development of Sangha. At its worst, communication can cause conflict and confusion, polarisation and the undermining of what’s really true and of value. But at its best communication can elevate us, spark us off and delight us. Like the dakini, the mythic sky-dancer, we can break the bonds of greed, hatred and delusion and inspire others to do the same.’
