Kids Welcome, Dogs Welcome, Everyone Welcome!
The Walk for World Peace is a community fundraiser which serves to help us develop our own inner peace and share that peace within the community we live. We begin with a meditation at the Center and proceed to Griffith Park for a picnic lunch.

How does this temple build world peace?
All funds raised go to support KMC LA's efforts to help people in the LA area develop peaceful minds, thereby increasing inner peace and world peace. As our founder Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (Geshe-la) says, “Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible.”
Funds raised will also go to the International Temples Project (ITP), established by Geshe-la with the aim of creating meditation centers worldwide, places where people can develop inner peace through the practice of meditation. The ITP serves the people of Los Angeles and we, in turn, are part of a global community dedicated to creating world peace.
