“Journey Across the Himalayas” (online only)
Wed 27th January @ 7:30 pm
Lecture: “Journey Across the Himalayas”
by Zara Fleming
This lecture will focus on the Buddhist areas of the highest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. The once spiritual domain of Tibetan culture and religion, spanning 2000 miles from Ladakh in the west to Bhutan in the east. It will explore the kingdoms and principalities of Ladakh, Zanskar, Spiti, Lahoul, Nepal, Mustang, Sikkim, Bhutan and their spiritual heartland of Tibet. Many of these countries lay on the ancient trade routes connecting India with Central Asia, and although isolated became important centres of Buddhist art and culture, housing vast repositories of sacred art in their remote monasteries and temples.
