Sangha

By

Definition:

Sangha is the Buddhist community. Sangha often refers to the community of Buddhist monks and nuns, but it can be used also to refer to all Buddhists past, present and future, or to the living members of one small Buddhist center.

This is similar to how Christians sometimes use the word "church" -- it might mean all of Christianity, or it might mean just one congregation.
