Amitabha Buddhist Library in Chicago


It was established in 2003, by Director Li-Su L. Tan, who was very moved when she first listened to a Pure Land Buddhism lecture given by Master Venerable Chin Kung on a television channel she unintentionally tuned in to. From that moment, the deep affinity she had with Buddha Amitabha and the Western Pure Land began to grow stronger. The library is operated solely by volunteers. It opens from 12:00–5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 12:00–3:00 p.m. on Sunday. Sunday morning chanting is from 10:00–11:30 a.m. and is followed by a vegetarian lunch. All services are provided free of charge. In addition, some free programs are offered on a regular basis: 1)Sunday Dharma Talk. The talk is given by Director Li-Su L. Tan every Sunday after lunch unless otherwise announced. Co-Director Bert Tan provides the simultaneous translation. 2)The children’s class is taught by Ms. Hui-Chuan Weng, and is coordinated with school calendars. The class meets every other Saturday afternoon.
