Make prayers and dedications

Through Kadampa Temples flourishing throughout the world more and more people will receive the blessings of inner peace, and through the development of inner peace in the hearts of individuals, outer peace will naturally arise within society. May everything we do to help and support the development of these Temples be the cause of lasting peace in this world for this and all future generations.

The main function of a Temple is that those who see it or develop faith in it will receive special blessings.

Whoever sees a Temple or an image of Buddha will receive the blessings of Buddha. There is no difference with regard to Buddhists and non-Buddhists – anyone, whenever they see an image of Buddha, or a Temple, will receive blessings.

Therefore I can say that from my side, or from our side, this is the best public benefit or public service. – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
