Time Out says

Learn about the many ways that Tibetan Buddhist artworks and practices have served as roadmaps to well-being. This new exhibition juxtaposes objects from the Rubin Museum’s collection with stories from Himalayan Americans that show various ways these living traditions are transformed and adopted for today’s world, especially in times of crisis. Organized around the central themes of "prevent," "heal" and "longevity," over 25 objects from the Rubin Museum’s collection will highlight traditional and contemporary Himalayan practices—such as rituals, visualization techniques, physical exercises, prayers, meditation, and medicinal treatments—for healing physical, mental, and emotional ailments. Artworks will be paired with stories and ephemera from Himalayan Americans who will share their own experiences with healing, both spiritual and secular, over the last two years.
