All profits go to the International Temples Project, founded by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, with the aim to introduce the Buddhist faith and practice of the New Kadampa Tradition publicly, and to exemplify contemporary Buddhist practice through public service. It achieves this through building traditional and non-traditional temples, meditation and retreat centers, and through the activities in Kadampa  Schools, World Peace Cafés, and Tharpa Publications.
