LUMBINI, Nepal, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Wencheng Gongzhu International Foundation and Rangrig Yeshe, Inc. are pleased to announce that the Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace website at www.peacesanctuary.org will be launched this coming Saturday, February 27, 2021 at 10:45 am Time in Nepal (NPT).
What is the Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace? In 2013, the Nepalese government entrusted His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche and his charitable organizations in the United States and Asia with the task of developing a "temple of peace" in Lumbini, Nepal, the birthplace of the Buddha.
His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche: "The Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace is currently under construction on the site adjacent to the Sacred Garden in Lumbini, the birthplace of Prince Siddhartha. It will serve as a radiant beacon, helping to inspire and guide individuals, communities, and nations towards peaceful co-existence and reconciliation. It would be my honor to have you join as a participant and stakeholder in this historic project for peace in Nepal. Together, let's make peace our priority."
How Can You Participate? As His Eminence travels around the world sharing his vision for the Mahasiddha Sanctuary, many are inspired and ask Rinpoche how they can contribute. Rinpoche responds by saying:
"I would like you to think of this as your project, not as Rinpoche's project. This is everyone's project! If you see something worthy here, if you feel inspired and would like to contribute to a more peaceful and compassionate world, feel free to use your creativity and see what you can do to support this project and inspire others."

Being here, I am reminded of his amazing life journey from sheltered prince to founder of one of the world's great religions.

Above all, as Secretary-General of the United Nations, I am all the more inspired to work for peace throughout the world."
