Pure Land Buddhist Teachings for Today's World
Global Sangha is an international virtual network that formed in early 2020 as a response to the pandemic. It is centered on the Buddhist teachings of Dharmavidya David Brazier and associated Dharma teachers.
Global Sangha is a fellowship of practitioners of the Nembutsu Pure Land Way, as a path of discipleship and of faith in the saving power of Buddha Amitabha (Amida).
At the simplest level it is the formation of a community of faithful practitioners reaching out and supporting one another.
At a deeper level, Global Sangha speaks of a commitment to universal goodwill, firstly to each other as a sangha going through the difficulties of contemporary life together, then extending compassion to all as the expression of the Unimpeded Light of Amida Buddha.
Ultimately, it is True Refuge – the eternal amidst the ephemeral - the Dharmakaya present for us now.
To uphold the spirit of Global Sangha is to turn to the Light and let it be reflected in all that one does.
