International Temples Project
Temples for World Peace
The proceeds from this Festival will be donated to the International Temples Fund (ITP), a global charitable project founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
The ITP aims to introduce the Buddhist faith and practice of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly, and to exemplify contemporary Buddhist practice through service to the public.
Its scope and activities are constantly evolving in response to the needs of the ever-changing demands of busy lives. It presently achieves its aim through developing and building traditional and non-traditional temples and meditation and retreat centres, and through the activities of World Peace Cafés and Tharpa Publications.
