Sangha Day Festival
Through meditation, ritual, reflection and talks we will deepen our understanding of how Sangha (spiritual community) is the living context in which we can realise our ideals and practice the Dharma.
"I believe that humanity is basically one. I believe that it is possible for any human being to communicate with any other human being, to feel for any other human being, to be friends with any other human being. This is what I truly and deeply believe." - Sangharakshita.
