About the Temple
How does this temple build world peace?
Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood was created by Kadampa Buddhist Teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso for the purpose of world peace, and as an offering to future generations.
Just seeing the Temple reminds us that we all have the potential to experience lasting peace and happiness, and to achieve the highest spiritual goals imaginable.
As Venerable Geshe-la says, “Without inner peace outer peace is impossible.” We have the power to change by understanding and transforming our mind, thereby creating our own inner peace. The impact of learning to develop inner peace is universal, from our local to global communities. This Temple serves our mission to bring more peace and happiness to the people of Los Angeles through meditation and modern Buddhism. This is our form of public service.
Everyone is welcome.
Kadampa Meditation Center Hollywood is a Temple dedicated to bringing peace and happiness to the world, and to removing suffering, through offering the methods of meditation and modern Buddhism.
