Buddhism across Asia Gallery
IMAGES and Sacred Texts – Buddhism across Asia, an exhibition of sacred texts, painted scrolls and sculptures from Sri Lanka to Japan, is on display at the British Museum until April 3, 2011.
The exhibition features depictions of the ‘three gems’ from across Asia. The ‘three gems’ consist of the Buddha himself, his teachings (dharma), and the Buddhist community (sangha).
