I had a day out in London today. I visited the William Blake exhibition at Tate Britain. Well worth a look if you like Blake or are intrigued about one of the most talked about artists within the Triratna community.
The other exhibition I saw was simply called ‘Buddhism’ and is the one that Mandy has been suggesting people visit. It is at the British Library very close to King’s Cross. There are some gems in this exhibition. Many of the exhibits relate to themes we have recently explored at the class. For example a Pure Land Sutra, a representation of Padmasambhava and lots of traditional illustrations of the Life of the Buddha. There’s also a great ‘Wheel of Life’ and a very large ‘bowl style’ bell that you are free to try.
