The Temple of Great Love is a Project conceived by Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, inspired in the Temple of Heaven on Earth in the Albagnano Healing Meditation Center, in Italy, opened in 2012.

The 1,000 m2 circular construction is located in the city of Campos do Jordão, at 1,400 meters above sea level, in middle of the Mantiqueira mountain range nature.

The Temple of Great Love was conceived in a mandala form. To transform it into a sacred space, following the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, 108 circular mandalas and a square central mandala of the Five Supreme Healers will be placed on the temple ceiling. The walls will receive traditional paintings as in the Tibetan monasteries and in the Albagnano temple.

The temple basic structure was built four years ago. In October 2014, while visiting Brazil, Lama Gangchen Rinpoche launched both the project to complete the temple in every detail and the fundraising campaign.

To complete the Temple of Great Love the project considers the ceiling thermo-acoustic protection, drywall lining, floor with thermal insulation, light and sound system, and general infrastructure of bathrooms, reception, etc.

The estimated budget for completion of the work is R$ 560.000,00 (some bids remaining to be closed).

Under the supervision of Lama Michel Rinpoche, the work shall start in March and our commitment with Lama Gangchen Rinpoche is to conclude the Temple before his next visit to Brazil.

Join this Project sponsoring the ceiling mandalas and the central channel, dedicating the merit to someone or something important.

In the first stage of the fundraising campaign, initiated by Lama Gangchen in October 2014, the total of R$ 102,736.00 were raised, and now the second stage was launched: The Ocean of Mandalas.

The Temple of Great Love belongs to all of us and many people will benefit from this holy space, both Dharma practitioners and the general public. The temple will be a legacy that Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, with the collaboration of all of us, offers to Brazil. A sacred landmark of peace, harmony, joy, love and wisdom.

In the name of Lama Gangchen Rinpoche, Lama Michel Rinpoche, Lama Caroline and all the spiritual community we thank you for your kind and generous support and for participating in the development of Dharma in Brazil.
