The exhibition playfully reveals practices with which people commemorate important moments in life, but quickly also forget about them again. From birth to death, significant events are passed down by word of mouth, chiselled in stone, or, as the case may be, kept secret.
We invite you to a meditation session amidst a host of Buddhas. Starting point of the contemplation is a Buddha image and the qualities it represents. Set out on a journey to inner peace in a guided meditation session.
