Dear Dharma Friends,
Preceding the 16th European Shin Conference (August 31st to September 2nd, 2012) we would like to invite you to the Jodo Shinshu Center Anjin-Do in Mönchengladbach/Germany. Quite a few friends have expressed their wish to come and visit the newly established Main Centre in Germany. As the program of the ESC16 does not leave much time in between, we would be happy to welcome you on Thursday afternoon the 30th August 2012.
On this occasion we will use the time to openly discuss the European Sangha issues and make plans for the future. All European Shinshu friends are invited to contribute to this discussion with their ideas, thoughts and wishes.
Mönchengladbach/Rheydt is easily accessible by train from Düsseldorf Railway station within thirty Minutes. From Mönchengladbach/Rheydt Station it is only a few minutes walk to the Center.

14:00 h welcome and service (Sambutsuge)
14:30 h – 15:30 h discussion
15:30 h Coffee / Tee time
