“Sangha is the context of my life”
A panel discussion hosted by Parami (Glasgow, Scotland) with Aryaketu (Nagpur, India), Arthavadin (Liverpool, UK), Samacitta (Birmingham, UK) and Dhammakumara (Sydney, Australia) exploring how our communication can be sangha and what sangha at its best looks like.
We hear about the joy of connection – across the globe – and some of the many expressions of sangha: classes at local Buddhist Centres, right livelihood projects, Order chapter meetings as well as online gatherings. Grappling with issues like speaking the truth with kindness and ensuring that harmony and trust are cultivated, we hear about the importance of really investing in our sangha relationships. And while sangha is concerned with helping individuals to grow, we as developing individuals, in turn, can support the continuous work of transforming the actual, imperfect sangha we are in, to an ideal Sangha.
The panel discussion was part of International Sangha Day, 21st November 2021, an online Triratna festival.
