Buddhism has a simple but profound message:
Since all problems in the world originate in the mind, the solutions to these problems and the causes of lasting peace and happiness are also found within the mind.

It is only by developing inner peace that we can solve our own problems and help others do the same, and in this way create world peace.

The International Temples Project


The internal scientific methods to accomplish inner peace are now available to everyone in the modern world, through the books, teachings and living example of the contemporary Buddhist Master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

By establishing the NKT-IKBU International Temples Project (ITP), Venerable Geshe-la makes world peace an attainable goal right now and for future generations.

This non-profit organization has brought Kadampa Buddhism to the modern world, providing everything – courses, Teachers, books, places of meditation, World Peace Temples and exemplary Buddhist communities – that enable countless people of our troubled world to establish lasting peace within their own mind.


The ITP exemplifies Buddhist practice through service to the public.


Everyone – Buddhist and non-Buddhist – is welcome to attend Kadampa Centres and courses.


The ITP introduces the Buddhist faith of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly.


Just by contemplating a few words from books by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso you are contributing to this vision for world peace.
