About Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre:
The modern Temple for World Peace is a place for spiritual inspiration and quiet reflection. Every day, it is used for meditation and prayer.
The design depicts Buddha’s Pure Land and includes holy precious objects that reveal the path to liberation and enlightenment. A large statue of Buddha Shakyamuni serves as the focal point. Thousands of people visit the temple each year to admire its artistic and architectural features and to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso says, “Just looking at the temple with a happy mind brings inner peace.”
