New Temple for World Peace Opening in Hollywood
By: Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood
Opening festivities throughout the Thanksgiving weekend include public talks by internationally renowned Buddhist teacher Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong on the subjects of compassion and wisdom, the practical methods for improving the quality of the mind, and how to improve relationships with others.
Resident teacher and American Buddhist Monk, Gen Rigpa, says the teaching and tools that will be offered at the Temple “can help everyone, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, occupation, religion, philosophy, way of life or background. Everyone can benefit from these teachings without exception, and everyone is welcome.”
Administrative Director Erica Shiefersetein describes the temple’s Los Feliz location as “ideal,” selected specifically “to benefit thousands of people, on a busy east-west street through a popular, beautiful section of Los Angeles.”
The Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood is a non-profit organization that is part of the New Kadampa Tradition-International Kadampa Buddhist Union (NKT-IKBU), an association of Mahayana Buddhist study and meditation centers founded in 1991 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Locally, the NKT-IKBU has eight centers in California with over 30 affiliated branches, and 54 centers with hundreds of branches throughout the United States.
