No events to show

Description

Take part in a one-off experience:

Tour the British Library's new exhibition of Buddhist manuscripts, artifacts and art with Stephen Batchelor himself. This is the largest exhibition of its kind ever held at the British Library.

Stephen, a former Buddhist monk, author, Bodhi College teacher and leader of Buddhist historical tours in India and Nepal, will lead a small group around the exhibition the day before Bodhi College’s Celebration event. This is a unique opportunity to see and experience these vivid pieces of history in person, with Stephen bringing them to life with explanations of content and historical context alongside Buddhist stories and parables.
