The Kadampa Temple for World Peace
Face coverings - It is no longer a requirement to wear face coverings when inside the Temple or other public buildings, however, we would like to ask our visitors to consider wearing one especially when in crowded indoor spaces.
Sanitisers - we continue to provide, and encourage the use of hand sanitiser throughout the site.
A host is always present to answer questions.
In 1997, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche opened the first Kadampa Temple for Word Peace at Manjushri KMC, which was constructed largely by Kadampa builders and volunteers according to Venerable Geshe-la's design.
Based on the mandala palace of Buddha Heruka, every aspect of the Temple teaches the spiritual path and encourages us to use our human life meaningfully.
Since then Venerable Geshe-la has overseen the design and construction of five more traditional-style Temples, More are planned for the future. All the Temples are dedicated to world peace.
You can visit the Temple daily between 11am and 5pm to:
- relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere
- take in the magnificent statues and other blessed objects
- join the 15-minute guided meditation at 12.30 and 2pm each day
In-person classes take place at the centre during term times, and all the classes are available online.
