We have come to practice together as a community or “sangha”. We do not encourage isolated practices or solo retreats. We are part of a body- the Sangha body, the practice community. Our practice is that of Interbeing. Our joy and our sorrow contribute to the collective joy and sorrow of the community. Our transformation and realization on the path can nourish us all. The community can also be of great support if our heart is open. Our insight and development must be realised in the community. There is no individual, separated happiness.
