Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, the founder of the NKT, has dedicated his life to helping the people of this world find true happiness by developing inner peace, or peace of mind, through meditation and other practices. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s compassionate intention is embodied in his establishing the International Temples Project (ITP), a unique international fund dedicated to public benefit. The ITP fosters the continuously evolving international development of a wide range of contemporary Buddhist institutions.
All the International and National Festivals and Dharma celebrations presented here are hosted by KMCs and KBCs and many are held in the Temples for World Peace. The New Kadampa Tradition – International Kadampa Buddhist Union is an international association of Mahayana Buddhist study and meditation centres that follow the Kadampa Buddhist tradition founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
He conducts regular seminars and classes as well as run periodical intensive meditation retreats at the temple. He has carried out his role of Abbot and as a Meditation Master, with finesse and has demonstrated great wisdom, patience and kindness to all. He was ordained as a monk at the age of 20 from which he began his studies and practises of Samatha and Vipassana Meditation at various monasteries within Thailand. He went onto reading Pali, Sanskrit and Buddhist Studies at The Mahachulalongkorn Buddhist University in Bangkok.
In 2003 he came to the UK and took residence at The Buddhapadipa Temple as a Dhammaduta monk where he gives Dhamma talks in Thai, leads Sunday evening chanting and scheduled meditation classes at the temple.
Phramaha Prasert Thitaguno is a resident monk who has lived at the Buddhapadipa temple for 5 years. I would like to visit the temple tomorrow sunday, but i need to know how it works, can i go there and add any meditation class? I was wondering for the children’s classes on Sunday, what’s the minimum age you expect children to have? A unique cultural performance taking place at various locations throughout Mardi Gras and this year’s Super Bowl XLVII parties, Grand Master Shi Deru and his world-famous “Shaolin Legacy” performance team have been invited to perform for celebratory events in New Orleans. The “Shaolin Legacy Show” has been presented to over a 300,000 audiences in the US since Master DeRu assembled his performance team in 1996. Once in a blue moon an opportunity presents itself for East and West to come together in celebration of culturally significant, time-honored events. From the start of Mardi Gras (January 21st ), through Super-Bowl weekend (February 1st through the 3rd), to the close of Mardi Gras (February 12th), Americans will be flocking to “The Big Easy” for traditional annual events and celebrations. Asians across America will be gathering for as many as 15 consecutive days in celebration of family and family unity and to usher in the “Year of the Snake” on the Chinese Zodiac calendar. It is unlike anything you have seen before; a show that has appeal and speaks to people of all ages.

Having been raised at the Shaolin Temple in China, Master DeRu brings to the West a life-long devotion to Shaolin, its mindset, and its way of life. The exceptional members of the “Shaolin Legacy” performance team are devoted students of Shaolin who have been trained and are led by the highly acclaimed Grand Master Shi DeRu, and who travel around the country and the world by request for repeat performances of this visually captivating, stunningly choreographed, martial arts show. These auspicious events have coalesced to bring East and West together in what will undoubtedly be a cultural exchange rarely ever seen on the national stage.

This had been a great dilemma of all meditators; as long as they are doing it, they feel good, elated, happy, enlightened, but moment they come out of the place where they meditate, one finds that one is back to square one. To meditate we need to understand two factors: evaluate the intricacies of the mind (how the mind works) and become familiar with awareness.
Mind functions on different levels; thoughts are propelled by mind due to certain conditions. Our mission is to promote individual peace of mind, compassion for all beings, spiritual growth, and an ethical way of life based on Buddhist principles. Through loving kindness meditation and the development of mindfulness, we strive to enlighten individuals as to the cause of suffering, the path leading to the cessation of suffering, and an understanding of the true nature of our existence. Whether it's your time at an event, funds for the temple or staples for the monks, we sincerely thank you. These presently include Temples for World Peace, Kadampa Meditation Centres (KMCs), International Retreat Centres (IRCs), Kadampa Buddhist Centres (KBCs), World Peace Cafes, the International Kadampa Schools Project, and Tharpa Publications. Some attend courses and retreats to learn how to develop inner peace through meditation, while others go to view the holy objects and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. All profits from all these courses are dedicated to public benefit through the ITP, so simply by attending them you are helping to bring peace into the hearts of this and future generations.
For years, he has introduced and encouraged people to develop knowledge and discover insight into the teachings and practices of Buddhism as well as guided them on their spiritual journey upon the Noble Eightfold Path.

Open International Martial Arts Championships, providing a center-stage for International Level Wushu Sanshou to grow as a sport in the western world, while working dedicated to further the advance of oriental cultural education throughout the world.

Things are same exactly same, people still bother you, you get offended often, jealousies and prejudices are very much intact there. A blind man needs a stick to walk safely, but if we can cure his blindness, then he can do without that stick. Once we know how a thought is formulated, what triggers thoughts, what are the conditions in which mind is prone to generate thoughts, only then we can take a leap beyond the cobweb of thoughts and experience the ever-flowing bliss. We expect certain responses from people, situations, and when they do not happen as we had planned, then the mind gets disturbed. But whatever their reason for visiting, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche has said that anyone who sees a Temple or the holy objects within will receive a special blessing that sow the seeds of future peace and happiness in their mind. He has dedicated the past twenty six years of his life perfecting his meditation skills and knowledge to gain his “Meditation Master” status. As a 31st generational descendent of the late Great Grand Master, Shaolin Temple Abbot and Chan Spiritual Leader, Shi SuXi - Grand Master Shi DeRu is uniquely qualified to carry the Shaolin torch. Company of like minded people gives joy, all adventure sports give a great kick, an adrenaline rush of blood and Wow- what an experience.
To understand all this, we need to cultivate and nurture attentiveness, alertness, vigilance and have a sharp microscopic vision a€“ as the Buddha said a€?Sharpen your vision like a bowman sharpens his arrowa€?. The agitations of the mind result in great turmoil, and this turmoil, this commotion generates several and varied thoughts. He has been active in helping many practitioners in their self development and guided them in their quest through the path of true Buddhism.
Even though he has lots of work to do concerning his position as the secretary of the temple, he still learns and practises the Buddha’s teachings and kindly shares his experiences in theory and practice to those who want to study Buddhism and practise Vipassana meditation. If you have been meditating for sake of getting relief or looking for joy, then you are really confused and dona€™t know what really meditation is. We pay great attention to the minutest activities, like the kind of clothes we wear, the fashion we follow, the place to hang out, membership of a particular club, and so on.
We need to open up our inner eyes a€“ the eyes of our mind and then wea€™ll be able to enjoy the every-flowing bliss of life. And then everything will be clear a€“ meditation gives pristine clarity towards our life. It is futile to clean the outside when your inside is blemished with numerous negativities.
