Community is essential to effective Buddhist practice. It’s not only a source of support, friendship and the pleasure of the company of positive, like-minded people. In its highest form, it’s one of the three refuges at the very heart of Buddhism, alongside the Buddha and the Dharma. And – as the Buddha himself explains in the Meghiya Sutta – spiritual friendship, the lifeblood of sangha, supports and nourishes every aspect of the Dharma life.

We’ll be drawing on this text as a source of inspiration for the day, alongside opportunities to share more personal reflections on what sangha means for us in practice. Join us to explore, enjoy and celebrate the sangha at WLBC and beyond. All welcome.
