Opening the door to Buddha’s Pure Land in Edinburgh - Opening the door to Buddha’s Pure Land in EdinburghThis weekend saw the opening of KMC Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong the General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU.Since acquiring the building, which previously was home to a bespoke supplier of paints, the community have worked extremely hard to transform it into a beautiful City Temple.In her opening talk, Gen-la explained how beneficial the center will be for the local people, and how fortunate they are to have the opportunity to meet modern Kadampa Buddhism in their town.And she encouraged everyone to help with the running of the center and explained the great benefits we receive from such work. Even if we don't have much time for study and meditation, cherishing our center is the same as cherishing others and causes the liberating path to open in our mind.For more information on the center and its program visit www.meditateinedinburgh.org

Welcome to the 5th tier!Watch this amazing video from IKRC Arizona as the structure for the fifth tier of the Temple is put in place.Even though the various elements were manufactured off-site, when they were assembled and lowered into place it was a perfect fit! A powerful testimony to the great skill of the architect, project manager, steel fabricators and everyone else involved in the process!The new Temple in Arizona is the first of a new design of five-tier temples to be built (see diagram), and the structures for all five tiers are now in place.On top of the fifth tier, the lantern base will be installed, which was constructed at Manjushri KMC and shipped to to Arizona a few weeks ago, where it is currently being gilded (see photos).Then on this the actual lantern canopy will assembled with the components also manufactured at Manjushri KMC and delivered to Arizona in the last shipment (see photos).Stand by for further updates.To view the photos referred to in the text, visit https://kadampa.org/2018/11/welcome-to-the-5th-tier
