The Shaolin Temple has successfully hosted an annual Shaolin Temple Day in California for nine consecutive years.  It is now preparing to stage its first cultural festival in the United States.  The temple has more than a million followers in North America alone.

“We’re working to build a platform to support exchanges between Shaolin disciples and kung fu lovers across the world,” according to Shi Yongxin, abbot of the Buddhist temple in the city of Dengfeng.
