Premio Macael arquiectura templo de Málaga de la NKT

The new Temple for World Peace of the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT), inaugurated last year in Alhaurín el Grande (Málaga), is one of the projects in which the Can Cet Foundation has collaborated through an economic contribution, as part of his work for the psycho-emotional well-being of people and his holistic vision of personal development and growth.

The Temple is a place destined for meditation and spirituality in the modern world and it received, from the hand of the King of Spain, the Europa International Architecture Award at the Macael Awards. Received by the architect, it was a recognition of sacred architecture made with natural materials, which houses 100 national limestone columns; the same material used also for the four main entrances of the building.

The Temple of Malaga is the sixth temple in the world of this Buddhist union, an around 1,500 m2 building with a large octagonal dome. It offers courses and spiritual retreats and the space called Peace Cafe, located in the same enclosure. With the collaboration for the construction of the temple, the Can Cet Foundation consolidates its commitment to the New Kadampa Tradition (NKT).

The NKT-IKBU defines itself as the union of Kadampa Buddhist Centers established as an international association for the study and meditation of Mahayana Buddhism, founded by the venerable Buddhist teacher Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. The NKT – IKBU is an organization that currently has more than 1,200 centers and study groups that offer their teachings in more than 25 countries around the world. Specifically in Spain, there are more than 50 meditation centers and groups.
