We also, sometimes have guest speakers from Triratna Centres or Sangha Groups who will lead the evening. (Program for our evenings will be available shortly but please still come along in the meantime).
So, what is Sangha?
Sangha is a Sanskrit word for community. Traditionally it referred to all the enlightened men and women who have come before us but more simply put means the community of monks and nuns in the Buddha's time. In the Triratna Buddhist Community, the sangha is our community of practitioners – the people with whom we practice and share our spiritual lives with. The guidance of more experienced friends and the support and friendship of others are especially important because Buddhism is an approach to life, not an abstract philosophy. The Buddha once said that spiritual friendship is the whole of the spiritual life, and we see friendship as the whole of the Triratna Buddhist Community.
