Buddhism in Asia. Art and Devotion

Buddhism, a spiritual discipline aimed to purify and transform the mind, was conceived toward the year 566 BC in the south of Nepal, then territory of India, by Siddhartha Gautama, Prince of the Shakya clan, whom they called the Buddha Shakyamuni.

The exhibition Buddhism in Asia. Art and Devotion provides an overview of this doctrine, born more than 2500 years and with more than 500 million followers, and is composed of half a hundred pieces, sculptures, paintings, musical instruments, platters, lamps and an altar, some of which belong to the collection of the venue and others were provided by the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

It includes a section of musical instruments used in the rites and considered vehicles of the word of Buddha, their sound keeps away to the spirits of the area devoted to ritual practices and dominates the energy of the wind. Among the pieces to be displayed are Tibetan horns and drums, drum handle from India and a pair of cymbals (dishes) from Nepal.
