4/3/2020 - Online Events: Mon/Thurs Meditation on Zoom

Monday and Thursday meditation will now be held online using Zoom led by Bhante Sutadhara.

Please be sure to install zoom on your device at least 15 minutes before meeting. For computers: https://zoom.us/signup, for devices use the appropriate install tool (AppStore, PlayStore, etc.)

The free version of Zoom limits meetings to 40 minutes which is why we have scheduled two separate meetings. They will use the same meeting ID but you will have to join each meeting separately. We have scheduled them with a 5 minute break between the first and the second. Click the links below to join the meetings.

Donate or Volunteer

Donations

‘Dana’ (Donation/Generosity) is the first virtue of Buddhists.  Throughout the history of Buddhism, Institutions were supported by the donations of time and resources form the public. An Lac Mission is functional thanks to the support of  people who are kind enough to contribute their valuable time and materials to help our cause. The temple encourages  its members and well-wishers to donate and we greatly appreciate anything that is offered to our temple. For monetary or material contributions, we can offer a tax deductible receipt for your records. All proceeds go toward temple maintenance and operations, community improvement projects, and local/overseas relief efforts (during times of need, such as during a tsunami or earthquake aftermath). If you would like to donate money, you can use the Paypal button below (Paypal is the leading online payment system and is very fast and secure. You can use a credit/debit card or bank account), or you can send a check directly to An Lac Mission, 901 S. Saticoy, Ventura, California 93004.  Alternately you can donate in person at our temple. If you have other items do donate, such as electronics, food, working bicycles, etc, we will gratefully accept your usable contributions. Please contact us for more info.

Volunteers

During our special events, we often ask the community for help in coordinating individual projects to get the events executed on time.  We also offer other volunteer positions both short term and long term, during other periods. We are especially in need of special skills such as carpentry, construction, computer hardware / software / network maintenance, website design and programming, etc. Volunteer contributions greatly reduce our financial burdens. If you want to donate your time out of kindness, please call the temple to inquire about our current needs and ongoing projects.

A special thank you to all our past and present volunteers that have helped us in countless ways. We would not be here to serve our beautiful community without your help.
