The Indianapolis Buddhist Meditation Group

Welcome to our Buddhist Meditation Group in English. We meet weekly on Saturday mornings at the An Lac Temple in Indianapolis. The address is 5249 E. 30th Indianapolis, IN 46218. The An Lac Sangha has been around many years but their temple building is very new and just seeing it is an event in itself.

Here is a link to a map and driving directions to the Temple: http://www.meetup.com/IndyBMG/venue/?...;...

The meditation is led by Quang Phap, otherwise known as Viet. Viet has been practicing with the An Lac Community for five years in mindfulness meditation.

Lunch was a part of the group practice, but due to a lack of regular attendance, it is no longer a part of the group practice.

Course Finances 

These courses are free of charge. The facilities are provided by the Vietnamese community and without their support we would be unable to hold these teachings. Therefore, donations are not required but are gratefully accepted.

Sitting cushions are provided.

Our practice consists of sitting meditation and walking meditation. The sitting meditation is usually fifteen minutes, followed by a walking mediation around the Buddha hall, and another fifteen minute sitting meditation. After meditation, I open the floor to discussion and questions people may have about Buddhism, the Temple itself, the practice of meditation, etc.

NOTE: Although there is no cost for these meetings and donations are not required or expected, they are greatly appreciated if you choose to make them. Donation boxes are in the front and rear of the Buddha Hall.

Any questions? Just use the "email me" link under my picture on the left and I'll answer as soon as possible. Viet

    Spiritual progress depends on the emergence of five cardinal virtues — faith, vigor, mindfulness, concentration and wisdom. The conduct of the ordinary worldling is governed by his sense-based instincts and impulses. As we progress, new spiritual forces gradually take over, until in the end the five cardinal virtues dominate and shape everything we do feel and think. These virtues are called, in Sanskrit and Pali, indriya, variously translated by faculties, controlling faculties, or spiritual faculties.[1] The same five virtues are called powers (bala) if emphasis is on the fact that they are "unshakable by their opposite.
