GIVING YOU THE TOOLS
FOR GREATER PEACE OF MIND
The Meditation Center of Chicago was founded by a small Thai Buddhist community who believe a more harmonious and peaceful world can be brought about through teaching meditation. Our goals are to spread the many benefits of mindfulness meditation, offer information on Buddhist tradition, and provide an environment for anyone interested in exploring the richness of Thai culture. The center welcomes people of all backgrounds and beliefs. We furnish a quiet space where anyone can come and meditate in a group setting. Our mission — to promote world peace through teaching inner peace.
A LONG TRADITION OF PROMOTING PEACE
THROUGH INNER PEACE
Our meditation center is one of many around the world branching from one of the biggest Buddhist temples in Thailand. The headquarters was established on February 20th, 1970 by Luang Por Dhammajayo and Master Nun Chandra Khonnokyoong. The founders and their disciples bulit the foundation on the teachings and research of Master Phra Monkolthepmuni, who rediscovered the ways of meditation. The belief of temple members is that world peace begins with inner peace, and with this, the temple has looked to teach meditation around the world.
