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
In 1997, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche opened the first Kadampa Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC in the UK, which 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, three of which are complete and two under construction. More are planned for the future. All the Temples are dedicated to world peace.
