The Buddhist Community

Through practicing and learning together, and through supporting each other, one's practice becomes all the more exponentially fruitful.


"Those who gathered and listened to the Buddha were the first Sangha, the assembly of disciples who practiced what he taught. Without them, there would have been no teaching. The importance of the Sangha cannot be emphasized enough."
― Lama Karma Chotso

"The jewel of community, the Sangha, is to be held equal to the Buddha and the Dharma. Indeed, the whole of the holy life is fulfilled through spiritual friendship." — Buddha Shakyamuni
