Shide Peace Project
THE SHIDE PROJECT
Lelung Rinpoche's intention IS to create a space:
- that is open to all
- contributes towards world peace by sharing ancient Buddhist inner science, ethics and philosophy
- to learn and have dialogue between all faiths and backgrounds in order to find the best solutions to modern problems that exist between people and within people's own minds
1. STUDY CENTRE / TEMPLE
A PLACE OF LEARNING
A centre for the study and progression of the inner sciences of Buddhism, integrating with modern science.
There will be ongoing dialogue and collaboration with leading Western scientists, bridging the gap between East and West.
There will be residences for monks and space for lay practitioners to stay for retreats etc.
2. WORLD PEACE CENTRE
A PLACE FOR DIALOGUE
This centre will be dedicated to the promotion of world peace, education, open dialogue and reconciliation, from the individual to government level.
An open space which will be for people of all religions and backgrounds and will feature a hall which seats 500 people.
Talks, meetings, lectures and screenings will bring people together.
3. WORLD PEACE STUPA
A SYMBOL OF PEACE
A nine storey stupa will be constructed and consecrated as a symbol of world peace.
Open to the public to visit, it will be a calm and peaceful place with lots of open space, where people can relax.
Regular workshops and events will be held to help develop harmony and peace of mind.
Shide will provide a space and methods for people from different groups, backgrounds and belief systems to come together to discuss and resolve any issues and conflicts.
We will create a space designed specifically for this purpose for many generations to come, so people can truly find peace within themselves and with their fellow human beings.
