A Buddhist Temple is a unique place, a blessed and holy place
It is a place that will have a positive influence on millions of people now and in the future, a perfect environment for the growth of true human qualities such as love, compassion and wisdom
A Temple is a source of peace for everyone – a focus of world peace
As Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says,
"Just looking at a Temple with a happy mind places good imprints on our mind and brings inner peace.
Through the power of this special object, problems such as anger and attachment are reduced."
The International Temples Project
The International Temples Project was established by Venerable Geshe Kelsang in the early nineties
The vision is to build a Kadampa Temple for World Peace in every major city in the world
The project is funded entirely by voluntary donations and revenue from International Buddhist Festivals
