It is hard to think of a more meaningful use to which we can put our precious human life than building and adorning Temples - providing pure, holy places where people in this and future generations can find true inner peace and freedom from all problems and suffering.
In this video we see not just the great diversity and quality of the work at the Studio to provide these statues and adornments but also the sheer joy when new objects are produced.
The video opens with, for the first time ever, a plaque of one of the Five Buddha Families being demolded for adorning a Kadampa Temple. Such an occasion for rejoicing!
