Permanent Buddhist Exposition in Ural


Chelyabinsk Oblast Regional Museum of Local Lore (Chelyabinsk, Russia) has been very inspired by cooperation with our Buddhist Center and it has suggested that we organize a permanent exhibition “Far East Culture”, which can show richness of Buddhist culture to local people and guests. It will be the first such exposition in South Ural; and it’s a big honor for us to participate in its creation. We are allotted 60 m² in the new modern museum with the best exhibition equipment in the country. If we cope with filling of exposition, the museum will probably give us more space.

Lama Ole gave us his blessing and made wishes for success of this exhibition. It is an important step for supporting Lama Ole’s activity in spreading Buddhism in Ural and strengthening positive image of Karma Kagyu tradition in the eyes of authorities, cultural and educational institutions. As arts critics and museum officials say, the preceding exhibition “Treasures of Buddhism” (taken place in 2011 in Chelyabinsk) was incredibly successful: 3308 people visited the exposition for 4 months. Due to citizens’ request the exhibition was prolonged four times.

Today the potential audience of the exhibition is not only interested in Buddhism people, but also pupils, their parents and teachers who are giving the course about religions in schools. Accuracy in teaching Buddhism in schools in many respects will depend on representativeness and authenticity of the displays.

It’s very important now to fill the exposition with the exhibits, which would represent Buddhist culture of such regions as Japan, China, Tibet, Nepal, Mongolia, and Buryatia. All of you who want to support this activity in Ural (by presenting items for the exhibition or in other ways), please, contact us.

Here is a poster about the exhibition.

Thank you!

The curator of the project is Lukanenkova Oksana lukanenkova@gmail.com
