Fulfilling a special vision

An increasing number of people around the world are relocating to live close to a Kadampa Temple or Center. 
Their wish is to be able to help the center more and, of course, take a fuller part in the spiritual program. 

Meditation retreat in Israel

Previously we reported on the nascent Israeli Sangha forming in Tel Aviv under the leadership of Daniel Koren. The group has thrived during the lockdown period and recently gathered for their second in-person retreat. Here is their update.

Prayers for world peace

Prayers for World Peace is a practice introduced by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. It gives members of the public an opportunity to visit a Temple or center and join in prayers and meditation for world peace once a week, often on a Sunday.
Recently, encouraged by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, a new recording of the payers was made and is proving very popular.
