The Sangha is a vital element in the practice of Mindfulness. To quote Thich Nhat Hanh:

“Sangha building is crucial. If you are without a sangha you lose your practice very soon. In our tradition we say that without the Sangha you are like a tiger that has left his mountain and gone to the lowlands – he will be caught and killed by humans. If you practise without a Sangha you are abandoning your practice”

If you are surrounded by Sangha, you have the chance to sit together, to learn together, and you won’t lose your practice.
