Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory "Doorway to an Enlightened World: The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Collection"
Free admission to the museum with Emory ID!
The reception hall is on the top floor with a separate entrance.

Tuesday, April 19
7:30 pm, Reception Hall
A significant Buddhist form, the stupa is a container of sacred relics—first of the historical Buddha, then of later significant Buddhist figures — while simultaneously a representation of the ordering of the universe, a connection between the earth and the heavens, and a symbol of the enlightened mind. Not only are stupa an important component of Tibetan- Buddhist altars—both private domestic altars as well as more public temple altars—but they also range from small votive offerings measuring less than one square inch to massive architectural structures to be circumambulated that are found throughout the world.

In an illustrated lecture titled Stupa & Sacred Geography in Private & Public Settings, Katherine Anne Paul, curator of the Arts of Asia at the Newark Museum, will map the sacred geography of stupa—large and small, personal and public—that connect to Tibetan-Buddhist practice.

Thursday, April 21
4 pm, Reception Hall
Enjoy Himalayan ginger, lemon, honey tea as Daniel McNamara, PhD candidate in Emory’s Department of Religion, discusses an 18th-century thangka painting of Chakrasamvara on display in the exhibition Doorway to an Enlightened World: The Tibetan Shrine from the Alice S. Kandell Collection. He will explore the various ways that Buddhists might interact with the image: as an object of devotion, as a map for transformation into an enlightened being through tantric practice, and as an illustration of the results of that practice.
