14 ~ A Temple arisen from Festivals
As we marvel at the tremendous progress with the Kadampa Temple for World Peace in Málaga Spain, it is worth pausing to think about where these extraordinary buildings come from.
This is now the sixth such Temple designed and overseen by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, who has said that we are building them not for our own benefit but for the benefit of future generations.
These Temples will last for hundreds of years and Venerable Geshe-la says that anyone who contributes to the development of such a Temple is truly a 'benefactor of future generations'.
These Temples are constructed under the auspices of the International Temples Project, a charitable entity whose principal source of income is the proceeds from the International Kadampa Festivals.
So every time you take part in one of these Festivals you contribute to the developments of these precious Temples.
The next chance to contribute is to take part in the 2021 International Spring Festival. Don't waste this precious opportunity.
