The Sangha, Buddhism’s third jewel of refuge, is the community. It is the community of those originally formed around the Buddha, and those beings who are trying themselves to implement the dharma and realize reality – who are trying themselves to become Buddhas. We are infinitely connected with all beings through all time, since the beginning of the world. It is an alternative social world, founded on enlightenment, detachment and love.

I hadn't known of this gentleman until I found him here on Gaia. I've recently embraced Buddhism and his various episodes on this site have been invaluable to me. Thank you so very much... not just entertain.... life altering information.
