Why Practice with a Sangha?
"In order for the practice to be easy and successful, it is very helpful to practice with a community, called a Sangha... With a Sangha, we get support whenever we need it, and we profit from the experience and insight of its members and also from their advice and guidance. A teacher is a treasure, but without a SAngha, the practice can still be difficult.
Therefore getting in touch with an existing Sangha or setting up a small SAngha around us is a very important step."
