cooperation and dialogue between all people by hosting interfaith
workshops, seminars, and conferences. Programs will include
all of the world's major religious traditions. The Chamtse
Ling will be a refuge for everyone who believes in and supports
the goals of interfaith collaboration, acceptance, and respect
among all people.
will provide a residence for a small Buddhist monastic community
who will provide ongoing religious instruction to the public.
The temple's main hall will house a large traditional Tibetan
Altar and will be ringed by plaques of the Nobel Peace Prize
Cultural Center is the home of Thubten J. Norbu, elder brother
of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Located on 90 acres in
southeast Bloomington, the Tibetan Cultural Center was established
in 1979 by Norbu as an outpost of Tibetan Culture. Its
purpose is to create a refuge inclusive of people of all faiths
and backgrounds and to encourage awareness of the responsibility
that each of us has toward establishing a peaceful world community.
