Stroll around the Kadampa Buddhist World Peace Temple. Buddhists believe that walking around a Temple that houses a statue of Buddha brings great good fortune. It is called ‘circumambulating’ and is usually done in a clockwise direction.
The Temple is one of five Kadampa Temples around the world. The Temple’s unique design is based on the celestial palace of Heruka, the Buddha of Compassion.
The design also represents all the stages of the spiritual path.
Just seeing it reminds us that we have the potential to improve our human nature and qualities through developing the capacity of our mind.
