The Chicago Buddhist Vihara is a Therevada Buddhist temple offering religious services and teachings of the Dhamma. We also welcome members of any faith interested in learning about meditation.
Our Mission is to help you realize inner peace and happiness through the application of meditation and Buddhist philosophy. With a consistent Meditation practice focusing on mindfulness and other techniques, one can train the mind to be in the present moment and achieve clarity by letting go of past regrets and future anxieties. With support and study, a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Buddhist Way of Life may be achieved.
