Support the Expansion Project of the Chan Meditation Center. The late Master Sheng Yen founded his first temple, the Chan Meditation Center, in New York, 1979, with the vow of “spreading Chinese Chan Buddhism in the West.” It is the birthplace of his unique approach to Chan Buddhist teaching that later paved the way for the founding of Dharma Drum Mountain in Taiwan.

Master Sheng Yen’s vision carries on as CMC grows from its humble beginning into a spacious center of practice. We want more people to benefit from Chinese Chan Buddhism. Therefore, we need your continuous support to bring the expansion project to completion. Your contribution is essential and much appreciated.
