At the exhibition of Buddhist art in Kennington entitled “Space for Mind, Space for Art: treasures of Tibetan Buddhism, and contemporary responses“, on 29 May 2012, there was a great programme of events and talks about Buddhist art.
We were honoured to have as keynote speaker at the private view Lama Jampa Thaye, a scholar and meditation master trained in the Sakya and Karma Kagyu traditions of Buddhism, who found time in his busy schedule to visit the exhibition and give this wonderful welcoming speech:
The event, a display of some of the finest Buddhist statues ever exhibited in London, was hosted by Diamond Way Buddhism UK. As part of the exhibition, several striking pieces of contemporary art were shown next to the Tibetan Buddhist statues and thangkas. The exhibition was held at The Spring, on Vauxhall Walk in the Kennington area of SE11.
A full report of the event along with photographs will follow soon!
