Chicago Zhengjue Temple · History
In 1992, the overseas Chinese Buddhist faith in Vietnam was deepened. The Vietnamese overseas Chinese group donated funds to build the temple and established the Chicago Zhengjue Temple. It was originally located in North Chinatown, near the Chicago Argyle where Vietnamese Chinese gathered. . In 2000, quit old and die. Belief groups, donate money, have flawless management, and it is not easy to maintain development. The believers decided that the Buddhist monasteries should be managed by the monks most appropriately, and they invited the monks once again. This coincides with Master Ji Rufa’s popularity in Mei Hongfa. He sincerely invited Master Ji Ru as the abbot. Following the succession of Master Ru, his heart was boundless, and he cherished the world. It is suggested that the original site of this temple is very limited, and it should be found. The believer group reached a consensus, sold the original building (near Argyle, Chicago), bought the current site of South Chinatown Chinatown (2249 S. Wentworth Ave, Chicago, IL 60616 USA), and transferred the monastic management to the monks. At that time, there was no Zhengxin Buddhist temple in the Chinatown of South Chinatown. This move was just for the convenience of attracting the believers, cultivate Zhengxin Buddhism, and better promote Falun Gong. Since moving to South Chinatown Chinatown in 2004, Chicago’s Zhengjue Temple has a history of decades. It has deep roots with the Chinese believers in Vietnam and is currently favored and respected by the majority of Chinese.
