During the 2004 Summer Festival, Geshe Kelsang encouraged the Brazilian Kadampas to build a national Kadampa Temple in Brazil. It will be known as Centro de Meditação Kadampa do Brasil (KMCB).
The funds for the Temple will be provided by the International Temples Fund.
The Brazilians wasted no time in launching the project. They acquired a large tract of land just outside of São Paulo and construction work is already very advanced. Use the photo newsletters above to watch the work progressing..
Besides the Temple there will also be a bookshop, camping facilities, and residents accommodation.
