PREVIEW: The Six Senses of Buddhism

This exhibit is currently in UMMA and will be there until June 30, way past the end of the school year.

What is meant by the sixth sense is the mind, which for those unfamiliar with Buddhism is closely represented as enlightenment. The mind of the Buddha is what Buddhists train so hard to obtain, through sutra’s, meditation, and basically every other practice.

If you want a more involved experience with this exhibit than simply strolling through and looking at the art, UMMA is hosting many events like conversations, demonstrations, and tours in this exhibit. Go to UMMA’s website to check it out.

I know Sat May 11th, 1:30-2:30pm there is a demonstration of a tea ceremony in the exhibit and right afterwards at 3pm-4pm there is a group conversation which will shed some light on the artwork.

I am a senior studying business and I have lots of travelling experience in Asia. I am very pessimistic and opinionated about life, but art brings me happiness and I hope my pessimism isn't apparent in my reviews, for the sake of the artists!
