English term or phrase: order of bhikkus
What is the appropriate Japanese equivalent of 'order' in the following context?

The Buddha himself, when admitting women to his order of bhikkhus, foresaw the inherent danger of having both men and women in the order.

Explanation:
僧伽(サンガ)means exactly the order of bhikkus (比丘, followers of Buddha). So probably you can use this word for the first part (his order of bhikkhus), and use 教団 for the second part (in the order).
