The International Temples Project (ITP)

Proceeds from the annual Festivals and Celebrations in the NKT-IKBU support the activities of the International Temples Project (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. It achieves this through developing and building traditional and non-traditional temples, meditation and retreat centers, and through the activities of World Peace Cafés and Tharpa Publications.

Menlha Center's REFRESH & REMODEL project was a huge success! We raised over $37,000 to make improvements, purchase new furniture, window signage, artwork, new meditation chairs and cushions, a state of the art sound system, a beautiful new shrine and revamped bookstore. Images here.

We are very optimistic about our future and the growth of our sangha. All of our classes, courses and events are now offered in-person. Join us in our remodeled meditation space that's open, light, and very conducive to meditating together. 

We believe the entire community will benefit from a remodeled Menlha Center that is ready to welcome all of you back.
