  • A Deep River Runs Far – Theravada Culture Exhibition

    Now Until 04/21
    Museum of World Religions
    Buddhism, which originated in India, enriches its native land with spiritually-fulfilling teachings, as the Ganges has lovingly nurtured the land of India with its great expanse. The religion moved eastward to the Chinese region of the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers, and even reached the Southeast Asia to the land of the Mekong, the Chao Phraya and the Irrawaddy Rivers.
    The Southeast Asian region has been under the influence of Buddhism since the 3rd- Century BC, when Emperor Askoka of India’s Maurya Empire began sending monks to the Jindi region (today Myanmar and Thailand) to preach Buddhism.
    Different schools of Buddhism started to emerge in the 11th Century, when the Theravada system from Sri Lanka spread into Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos. This movement created a religious community of Theravada that spans these countries, and distinguished them from other Buddhist religions in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
    This exhibition focuses on the Theravada school of Buddhism. It has three main categories, including 1) The cultural map of Theravada woven by rivers (multimedia interaction); 2) Style and Image, and; 3) A Life of Meditation and Faith. The exhibition will take the audience on a journey to explore the Theravadin religious culture, which is rooted in a land full of unrest and conflict and, as river does, integrated into every aspect of the life of people in this land.
