How to build a pure world

The first Saturday in November is International Temples Day, a special day on which we celebrate the International Temples Project (ITP) and remember the inconceivable kindness of its founder, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. On this day, special events are held at various centers throughout the world to support the project. Prayers are made for the project to flourish and to dedicate it to world peace.
