Kalachakra Peace Chapel

The following article is from the Winter, 1992 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

The 1991 Kalachakra Initiation in New York marked the beginning of the Tibet Center's program to establish and promote the teachings of the Kalachakra Tantra in America. In order to create a conducive environment for the practice and study of Kalachakra, Khyongla Rato Rinpoche and the members of the Tibet Center announce plans to establish a Kalachakra Peace Chapel in New York City.

The Kalachakra Peace Chapel will be an urban temple and teaching center. It will be open to all, Buddhist and non-Buddhist, for meditation and prayer. A three-dimensional Kalachakra Mandala and life-size image of the Kalachakra deity will be on display inside the Temple. Regularly scheduled teachings and rituals on Kalachakra, as well as all facets of Buddhism, will be given. Additionally, the chapel will feature a library, reading room and a residence for permanent monastic staff and visiting lamas.


You can participate in assisting us in our goal, the creation of the chapel. Your check to The Tibet Center is tax deductible. For more information please call or write to: The Tibet Center, 359 Broadway, New York, NY 10013. Tel: 212-966-8504.
