IMG started out when an American lawyer living in Taipei met Master Sheng Yen
in 1994 and asked him for a retreat for her and some of her friends. At that time she
had no idea what she was asking because she did not have a lesson in meditation in

groups of foreigners to come to the Nung Chan Temple in Beitou for beginners’
lessons and an one-day retreat, which was, eventually, held at the old DDM temple
in Jinshan (before any new construction started there). After that, sometime in 1995,
a regular sitting group of foreigners in Taipei was set up, which continued to meet

In a world of great uncertainties and alienation, in a life full of challenges and difficulties,
we need an anchor, a compass, and a lighthouse to help us cross the choppy sea of life.

The key lies in our mind, in how much we know about our own mind andwhether we
can be the master of our own mind.

IMG shares with you the why and how of life as taught by Chan Buddhism, through which
we can find true peace and wisdom, as well as the delight of life and the warmth in the world.

Come and join us in the meditation practice conducted regularly on Saturday morning.
Settle your mind.
Free your heart.
Be with yourself.
