Global Sangha Directory
Thich Nhat Hanh has stated that "The next Buddha will be a Sangha." A sangha, or local community, is a group of mindfulness practitioners who gather to meditate and to support each other on the path. We offer this global Sangha directory with the hope that it will help you to connect with a local community and nourish your practice. If there are no local communities near you, there are resources for joining an online community or for helping you start a Sangha.
We are fortunate to have many practices and teachings made available to us from Thay and the fourfold Mahasangha. Here you'll find some featured books and online teachings from our beloved community.
