Michael C. Carlos Museum says
In an illustrated lecture titled "Stupa & Sacred Geography in Private & Public Settings", Katherine Anne Paul, curator of the Arts of Asia at the Newark Museum, will map the sacred geography of stupa—large and small, personal and public—that connect to Tibetan-Buddhist practice.

More Info:

A significant Buddhist form, the stupa is a container of sacred relics—first of the historical Buddha, then of later significant Buddhist figures — while simultaneously a representation of the ordering of the universe, a connection between the earth and the heavens, and a symbol of the enlightened mind. Not only are stupa an important component of Tibetan- Buddhist altars—both private domestic altars as well as more public temple altars—but they also range from small votive offerings measuring less than one square inch to massive architectural structures to be circumambulated that are found throughout the world.

Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters- Atlanta will serve locally roasted, freshly ground and brewed coffee at this event.
