A Vision for World Peace –
The International Temples Project

The International Temples Project (ITP) is an international fund dedicated to public benefit. It was founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche with the aim to introduce the Buddhist faith and practice of the NKT publicly, and to exemplify Buddhist practice through public service – showing how individuals and society benefit through the practice of Buddhism in modern daily life.

Constantly adapting to meet the needs of modern society, the International Temples Project presently achieves its aim through creating traditional and non-traditional World Peace Temples, Kadampa Meditation Centres and International Retreat Centres and through the activities of Kadampa Schools, World Peace Cafes, and Tharpa publications.

All the books and other items sold on this website are published under the auspices of the ITP and the profit from all of these sales are dedicated to public benefit through this fund.

Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.”
