Qualities of the sangha[edit]

Erikdr (talk) 07:49, 24 May 2017 (UTC) Next polishing-up round. Found at least one more reference (Bhikkhu Bodhi again) for this section, hope that the tag about lack-of-sources at some point can go away. The current section was IMHO too much Theravada-focused; even the new source (Bodhi) clearly states that the Monastic sangha is NOT the Third Refuge, that solely applies to the Arya Sangha. Made the text such that it tries to say that what is seen as Sangha-refuge (at wider scale, all schools agree that for smaller-scale it's Ariya sangha but it's soooo hard to find a living Arya) is related to what a school sees as Sangha. A discussion shown at a few other places in the article, e.g. the four links to Mayahana schools at bottom showing that these four include 'Upasakas' in their Sangha definition and hence also define the Sangha-refuge wider. But more suggestions/polishing up welcome - I did not remove any of the old text, only repositioned some sentences.

"Move page" to make new title = "Sangha (Buddhism)"[edit]

Please "Move page" to make new title = "Sangha (Buddhism)" As this Sanskrit Language term exists in several religions originating from India. See :

Agree with mrigthrishna. Can’t understand why preference is being giving to Buddhism when we find the exact same concept with the same name in other religions as well.-Nimit (talk) 13:55, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
I prefer "Sangha (Buddhism)". JimRenge (talk) 17:13, 17 March 2018 (UTC)
