'Buddhist Festival'

Delightful evening

The eighth edition of the ‘Buddhist Festival’, organised by the Ministry of Culture, will take place till December 4, at the Jnana Jyothi Auditorium on the Central College premises.

Held in coordination with the Central Institute of Himalayan Culture Studies and the Maha Bodhi Society, the festival will see artists from the Central Institute of Buddhist Studies, Leh-Ladakh and Jammu and Kashmir display Thangka paintings. These paintings are a medium through which Buddhist philosophy is explained.

Along with the painting exhibition, there will also be a host of other programmes such as the Lama dance, Bhikku chanting, Dharma talks, butter sculptures and sand mandala — created with wood, precious jewels, rice and flowers. There are stalls selling books, and food stalls serving many Himalayan delicacies.
