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/ ?...;...
Lunch (Mindful Eating) is served at 12:00 p.m. and attendance is part of the teaching. Usually class will be over by 12:30.
These courses are free of charge. The noon meal is a shared project of the members who always provide a nutritious, vegetarian meal as part of our meditation practice. 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 broken up into three ten minute blocks, with discussion dispersed between them. This is usually followed by a luncheon prepared by the Western members of the An Lac Temple and is provided free of charge.
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.
PLEASE RSVP SO WE KNOW HOW MANY WILL BE STAYING FOR LUNCH. THANK YOU.
We have gone to a pot luck style lunch. Please notify Joann Bush (Quang An) what dish you are bringing. Vegetarian dishes please so as to keep with the tradition of a Vegetarian diet practiced here at An Lac Temple.
Any questions? Just use the "email me" link under my picture on the left and I'll answer as soon as possible. Viet
