BUDDHIST EXHIBITION 2017 : UNCOVERING THE LIGHT OF BUDDHISM

Buddhist Exhibition is an exhibition that  has been organised by the University of NSW Buddhist Society (UNIBUDS) to showcase Buddhist artefacts and artworks to the public.

In accordance with this year’s theme, “Uncovering the Light of Buddhism”,  the exhibition will explore the original purpose and meaning behind some Buddhist artefacts, by delving into the influence of time and culture in shaping the current perceptions of these artefacts.

How did Buddhism come about? What items did monks use back in the day of the Buddha? Who distilled the Buddha’s teachings from oral communication into written form and how were they recorded? Come and find out as you navigate your way through artefacts and exhibits as art, history and Buddhism intertwine.             Theme: Uncovering the Light of Buddhism
