"What makes the Festival a unique experience is that it is a real demonstration of Dharma in action.

"People attending the Festival do all the work of running it. We create the Festival ourselves."

- Kelsang Chodzom, Festival Coordinator

"Where I work people don’t get along and there are a lot of arguments, but at Summer Festival hundreds of people work happily together – without any monetary reward! It was amazing to be a part of that."

- Hannah Kim, Baltimore, Maryland
