Geshe Kelsang’s compassionate intention is embodied in the International Temples Project (ITP), a unique international fund dedicated to public benefit.
The ITP has the aim of introducing the Buddhist faith and practice of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly and to exemplify contemporary Buddhist practice through public service. It achieves this through building traditional and non-traditional styled Temples, meditation and retreat centres, and through the activities of temples for World Peace, World Peace Cafes, the International Kadampa Schools Project, and Tharpa Publications.
The money that comes from Dharma is used only for developing Dharma. This should be maintained continually from generation to generation. – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
