For two and half thousand years the teachings of the Buddha have been passed on from teacher to student, shared between friends and passed on from generation to generation. This has been done in community, out of enthusiasm, compassion and generosity. These teachings and their potential for profound transformation, both personal and collective, are now starting to take root globally.
At this pivotal moment, we are confronted with a choice: a choice between allowing these teachings to become another item in the spiritual marketplace or to keep with the traditions that have passed these teachings to us and ensure that they are taught with integrity, effectiveness and in a spirit of open hearted, enthusiastic generosity.
At Open Sangha Collective we are creating, nurturing and supporting a community of practitioners of Buddhadharma, students and teachers, who are committed to ensuring these teachings flourish in the 21st Century without succumbing to the market paradigm and the various hidden barriers built into that system.
