In a stricter sense, sangha can mean the assembly of all beings possessing some high degree of realization, referred to as the arya-sangha or noble sangha.
The sangha of monks and the sangha of nuns were originally established by Gautama Buddha in the 5th century BCE, with the goal preserving the teachings, reinforcing discipline, and serving as an example for the laity.
Within Chinese society, as an example, members of the Sangha are expected to renounce family connections and accept the Sangha as their family.

 TEMPLE OF ZOROASTER   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Having received a vision from Ahura Mazda, the Wise Lord, who appointed him to preach the truth, Zoroaster apparently was opposed in his teachings by the civil and religious authorities in the area in which he preached.
It is not clear whether these authorities were from his native region or from Chorasmia prior to the conversion of Vishtaspa.
Confident in the truth revealed to him by Ahura Mazda, Zoroaster apparently did not try to overthrow belief in the older Iranian religion, which was polytheistic; he did, however, place Ahura Mazda at the centre of a kingdom of justice that promised immortality and bliss.

Originally, of course, the central land was considered to be the region near Bodhgaya and places, such as Kashmir and Tibet, were the outlying places.
So by taking ordination from a proper teacher, for example the Dalai Lama, and living purely as a member of the Sangha, there is great hope, indeed, of our becoming one of the direct followers of Maitreya when he turns the wheel of Dharma in our world, in fulfilment of that promise.
All Buddhists in this lifetime, lay people as well as Sangha, are, as it were, indirect followers of Shakyamuni Buddha because we are unable to meet him face to face.
