The Preciousness Of Our Lineage

What people are saying


Ruben Vilalta-Martinez


“My experience from this festival is going to give me more insight into the profound process of Tantra we have been learning about. I want to get better at my practice, and as part of this, to help my friends and family by my example and the changes I am making in my life bit by bit, day by day."


Ingrid Blain


“I want to practice the Buddha of purification. Before this festival he felt a bit distant. But now he feels more in my heart. I will begin slowly, but later it will be very established in my heart."


Mariko Fuji


"Coming to this festival is like charging a battery for me. I’m from Tokyo and I want to go back to Japan and share what I have learned here and help Dharma flourish. For me faith in Geshe-la is most important - he is the gateway to all the Buddhas. With strong faith we want to do our best, and if we do our best everything is okay."


Dao Thauvin


“This is my twenty-first consecutive Summer Festival. I’ve been coming with my parents since I was a baby. I have friends I’ve known here since I was little, so we have grown up together, like a family. It’s one of the places where I know the most people. I teach computer science, and when I go back home I will be re-energised and able to practice patience easily with my students."
