Sangha means a community of adherents; Since you mentioned "three" facts, my guess therefore is the TRIpitaka. The Tripitaka writings of early schools of Buddhism, which were originally memorized and recited orally by disciples, fall into three general categories and are traditionally classified in three baskets (tri-pitaka). The commonest order is the following. The first category, the Vinaya Pitaka, was the code of ethics to be obeyed by the early sangha, monks and nuns. According to the scriptural account, these were invented on a day-to-day basis as the Buddha encountered various behavior problems with the monks. The second category, the Sutra Pitaka (literally "basket of threads", Pali: Sutta Pitaka), consists primarily of accounts of the Buddha's teachings. The Sutra Pitaka has numerous subdivisions: it contains more than 10,000 sutras. The third category is the Abhidharma Pitaka. This is applied to very different collections in different versions of the Tripitaka. In the Pali Canon of the Theravada there is an Abhidhamma Pitaka consisting of seven books. An Abhidharma Pitaka of the Sarvastivada school survives, also in seven books, six in Chinese and one in Tibetan. These are different books from the Pali ones though there are some common material and ideas. Another work surviving in Chinese, the Sariputrabhidharmasastra, may be all or part of another Abhidharma Pitaka. At least some other early schools of Buddhism had Abhidharma Pitakas, which are now lost.

Why is the sangha important to Buddhists?

One View:Sangha is important to Buddhistst since sangha refers to our companions on the Buddhist path. These companions can be people that are on the path with us and it can also refer to the community of ordained monks and nuns.Sangha is also important in terms of the refuge practice, which is often described asthe entrance to Buddhism. In this practice, we take refuge to Buddha, Dharma and the Noble Sangha. This means that we accept the Buddha as our guide, we follow the Dharma (teachings of the Buddha) as the path, and accept the Sangha as our companions. According to the Mahayana, in this context Sangha refers to beings who are already very advanced on the Buddhist path, i.e. who are on the path of seeing and beyond, which means that they are already liberated from Samsara.Another View:Sangha Day is the second most important Buddhist festival. It is a celebration in honour of the Sangha, or the Buddhist community. For some Buddhists Sangha refers only to monks and nuns. It is a chance for people to reaffirm their commitment to Buddhist practices and traditions. So Sangha is important to Buddhists because it's a chance for people to commit to Buddhist practice and traditions.
