Community

A community of Buddhist practitioners is referred to as a "Sangha" (Sanskrit for inseparable). It can include both monastics and lay practitioners. As the third jewel of Buddhism, Sanghas offer a deep well of support and wisdom. As Thich Nhat Hanh cautioned: "If you are without a sangha you lose your practice very soon."

Order of Interbeing

The Order of Interbeing (Làng Mai in Vietnamese) is a community of both monastics and lay practitioners who have committed to living their lives in accordance with the Fourteen Mindfulness Trainings. It was established by Thich Nhat Hanh and his associates in the mid-1960s at a time when the Vietnam War was escalating and the teachings of the Buddha were desperately needed to combat the hatred, violence, and divisiveness enveloping his country.
