The origination of IMG

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 that point and did not meditate, but wanted to. Thereafter, she arranged for various 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 on a regular basis. The group started holding events and sittings in downtown Taipei and in the annex of Nung Chan Temple in Beitou with an increasing involvement of monastics.
