The Lay Saṅgha: Its Meaning and Implication

From a past Tisarana Residential Retreat: Ajahn Vīradhammo speaks about what it means to be part of the Lay Buddhist Saṅgha. This requires a deep commitment, responsibility, and aspiration to follow the path laid out by the Buddha for the full realization of enlightenment. This entails the duty of living by the 5 precepts, creating a foundation of generosity, developing a formal meditation practice, and developing a life of inner contemplation.
