Kadampa Temples for World Peace
"Just seeing these precious Temples places on our mindstream powerful potentialities to meet holy Dharma and complete the path to liberation."
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
A Kadampa Temple for World Peace is a modern Temple designed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche based on a traditional design representing the
Pure Land of Buddha Heruka. Besides being active Temples for their local center and local community, they frequently host major events such as international and national festivals.
All these Temples are dedicated to world peace.
more temples to come
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche opened the first Kadampa Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC in the UK in 1997. It was constructed largely by Kadampa builders and volunteers according to Venerable Geshe-la's design. Based on the mandala palace of Buddha Heruka, every aspect of the Temple teaches the spiritual path and encourages us to use our human life meaningfully.
Since then Venerable Geshe-la has overseen the design and construction of five more traditional-style Temples, four of which are complete and one currently under construction. More are planned for the future.
