Sangha: A Path of Relationship

See all series | See all talks

Teacher: Rodney Smith
Date: 2002-12-06
Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center


Questions for personal inquiry: Do you experience most interpersonal relationships as growth opportunities or troubling?

Do you make space in your life for others?

Do you frequently feel isolated and lonely? How much of the isolation comes from assumptions about self and other?

Do you make the effort to attend gatherings of like-minded people?

Reflection: What was your life like before you knew the existence of “”a Path””? What is different now? How does the sangha support that Path and your growth on it? Would the Path be the same without the sangha? What efforts do you make to build cohesion in the sangha?

Exercise: Become active in your support of like-minded people. Befriend someone from the sangha, volunteer for a community activity, join a like-minded group or become socially engaged in meaningful action. The sangha like the dharma takes each one of us to make it complete.
