“We are all gathered annually to celebrate the Peace Garden’s creation. In the future, the Garden will remain open to all to come to pray with expanded minds. Ultimately our collective hope and prayer is that all sentient beings’ happiness is increased, that their sufferings are reduced, and that all the obstacles are removed and that everyone finds a path towards liberation. So let us all join in this effort!” -Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche.


Since 2005, The Ewam Sangha and the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas hosts a Festival of Peace. A FREE event, this special gathering invites thousands of visitors to enjoy a day on the grounds together. People gather to sing, to dance, to share stories, and to cultivate community in our unique times.  


Peace festival friends relax at The Garden during the event.
