We conclude our month-long celebration with a celebration of community and friendship. Friendship is central to the Buddhist conception of spiritual community, a community that reaches out to all people. Sangha Day is a celebration of the ideal of community based on friendship, shared values, empathy and courage. The day will conclude with Mitra ceremonies.
