sangha

A Quote by Shinjo Ito on buddhas, teachings, dharma bodies, spirits, sangha, and spiritual community

Buddhas continue to live on through their teachings as dharma bodies. Their spirits become manifest in the sangha (spiritual community) where their teachings are passed on.

A Quote by vow of the bodhisattva on bodhisattva vow, buddhahood, misery, wisdom, compassion, joyous effort, buddha, dharma, and sangha

With the wish to free all beings
until we reach full awakening
I will always go for refuge
To the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha

Today, in the presence of the enlightened ones
Inspired by Wisdom, Compassion and Joyous Effort
I generate the mind aspiring to full buddhahood
For the Well-being of all Sentient beings.

For as long as space endures
and as long as sentient beings remain
until then, may I too, abide
to dispel the misery of the world.
