One of the most meaningful things we can do
With the recent opening of the Kadampa Temple for World Peace Grand Canyon the work of the International Temples Project became center stage for many people, inspiring them to want to contribute toward this auspicious project.
A few days ago we published some powerful testimony from people intending to donate to the Work a Day for World Peace Day project tomorrow Friday October 18, and today more people from all over the world share what has inspired them to contribute.
Such beautiful minds aligned with the wishes of the Venerable Spiritual Guide are themselves a true object of rejoicing.
Participating in this project means we dedicate a day’s wages, or whatever is a comfortable amount, to help with the work of the International Temples Project.
Every cent donated goes toward fulfilling the compassionate vision of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche to build a Kadampa Temple in every city of the world - both urban temples and larger, traditional World Peace Temples.

The best way to help living beings is through our spiritual practice. When we practice giving within the six perfections we accumulate merit, help those in need and also offer our dedication to our Spiritual Guide.

Having just returned from the opening of the 5th Temple for World Peace in Arizona, I am inspired to contribute to the Temples Project to help build more of these magnificent and meaningful structures. It's amazing to think how Kadampa Temples will outlive us all and continue benefiting so many living beings long after we have left this life.

I am donating this year because so many people benefit from the Temples. A Temple is a building dedicated to world peace, and everyone who sees them feels something special, which they often describe as a feeling of peace. There is no better way to help people in such times and I feel delighted to help my Spiritual Guide fulfill his own pure wishes.

Since I arrived in Lima, Kadampa Buddhism has helped me a lot. I am very grateful for this good fortune to have found these teachings. I am donating to the temples project because through it I will benefit many beings who will experience more inner peace through these temples, which will welcome millions of people in the future.

I am making this donation because I understand the commitment of our Spiritual Guide Gueshela to spread the Dharma, and for me it is important to make a small contribution while I have this human life. And I can also offer it to other living beings as a donation for them. It is a great opportunity for me to be able to help centers spread the Dharma in the way Gueshela is doing. Thank you very much Geshela for everything!

A temple is a mandala in a pure land - refuge for everyone. The more temples we build, the more living beings will achieve happiness and supreme inner peace.
