AnLac Temple – Vietnamese American Buddhist Association 5249 E. 30th St. Indianapolis, IN 46218 USA. Fax/Tel: (317)[masked] [masked], web: www.anlactemple.org “A Lotus to you, a Buddha to be” Announcing a 6-days Intensive Practice Retreat at - ANLAC TEMPLE'S CLUB ZEN – After the Buddha achieved enlightenment, he realized that all sentient beings have what is called a Buddha Nature or a nature of perfect understanding of the true realities of life. This Buddha Nature exists before one is born and remains after one’s death. The majority of us do not realize our Buddha Nature because of the delusions created by our minds, “minds of duality” that discriminate between good and bad, and right and wrong. It is the discriminating mind that gives rise to all the kinds of suffering that we experience in life. A Zen practice (meditation) helps us calm our bodies and minds and to eventually achieve a mind of complete non-duality! This is it! We are “Home!” An Lac Temple will host a 6 day intensive retreat from May 17 – 22, 2010.. This might be your chance to find your True Self, True Happiness and be free, forever and ever. Attendance is limited to 50 participants ages 18 years old and up. So please register ahead of time by calling[masked], sending an email response to [masked], or by visiting
