International Temples: A beautiful gift for future generations
Its aim is to introduce the Buddhist Faith of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly and in particular to exemplify Buddhist practice through public service.
Pure Lands in our troubled world
Kadampa Buddhist Temples take many forms.
Some are custom built according to a special design developed by Geshe Kelsang based on traditional Buddhist architecture, such as the Mother Temple at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre in England and the Temples in New York, and São Paulo.
Others are adapted from existing buildings acquired for Kadampa Meditation Centers around the world, such as the Temples in Toronto, Le Mans, Berlin, Zurich, Texas, and Melbourne.
“Whenever anyone, Buddhist or not, sees a Temple or an image of Buddha they receive blessings.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
