In a conventional sense, it’s a community of people who share, tradition, practice, intention and aim.
I also find it’s every situation and person, since everyone and everything is a support and invitation for me to heal, mature and wake up. The world is a mirror for me. The world is my sangha.
And really, everything is a community of spirit. It’s all happening within and as awareness, and within and as capacity for it all.
This is a good example of how any thought – including the idea of sangha – is a question, an invitation for inquiry. When I explore it for myself, what do I find?
I also find that an initial sense of reality or solidity of the thought “sangha” dissolve as it’s explored further.

- also, everything/one is an invitation to heal, mature, wake up – invitation for truth – if there is receptivity
- and everything is a community of spirit
