Join us for the opening of the Kadampa World Peace Temple in Arizona

A magnificent Kadampa World Peace Temple is currently under construction in Arizona. This will be only the fifth traditional Kadampa Temple in the world! Temples are an important part of the New Kadampa Tradition, one of the primary reasons being the benefit they bring to everyone who sees them. Geshe Kelsang has said "Whoever sees a Temple or an image of Buddha will receive the blessings of Buddha. There is no difference with regard to Buddhists and non-Buddhists – anyone, whenever they see an image of Buddha, or a Temple, will receive blessings. Therefore I can say that from my side, or from our side, this is the best public benefit or public service." Given that the Temple will be visible from Route 66 - the gateway to the Grand Canyon, millions of passersby will see it every year. This means that countless beings for many generations will stand to benefit. The opening of this Temple will take place at the beginning of the Fall Festival in late September. Thousands of Kadampas from around the world will come together to be part of this historical moment. We hope you'll join us. For more information, visit the
