The Institute of Oriental Philosophy
Lotus Sutra Exhibition Held in Hong Kong
Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor So Kee Long felt that the spirit of the Lotus Sutra exhibition accords completely with the founding principles of CUHK in uniting the traditional and the contemporary, and integrating China and the West.
Jao Tsung-I, professor Emeritus of CUHK and one of China’s preeminent scholars and the Institute of Oriental Philosophy (IOP) founder Daisaku Ikeda sent messages. Professor Jao remarked on the rich literary merit of the Buddhist scriptures and observed that the Lotus Sutra manuscripts are the results of dedicated and painstaking efforts of countless unsung heroes.
The exhibition displays photographic panels of the renowned Dunhuang Murals, magnificent wall paintings of Buddhist stories discovered in the grattoes of Dunhuang, a town along the Silk Road with a major thoroughfare leading into China’s capital.
