Event Description:
Featuring finely cut prints of Tibetan Buddha, protective deities and tara from the Derge Parkhang (/deh-gay par-kahng/), the Pearl of the Snowlands exhibition introduces Derge Parkhang, one of the foremost cultural, social, religious and historical institutions in Tibet. Derge Parkhang was founded in 1729 by Denba Tseren and still remains an active center for publication and distribution of Buddhist texts. The exhibition opens a window into the fascinating beliefs, symbols and learning of Tibetan Buddhism. Photographs and video introduce the people of Derge who have preserved and revived the Parkhang's position as one of the most precious pearls of Tibet's living culture.

This is the first authorized exhibition of works from the Derge Parkhang in the US.
