I made this image at the International Buddhist Temple in Richmond, BC. The International Buddhist Temple delivers the philosophies of Buddhism to the western world through meditation, traditional ceremonies, charitable giving, and the impeccable art of Chinese craftsmanship. It is well worth a visit and taking the time to discover the serenity to be found there.
This photograph may be included in Following the Silk Routes & Beyond in Vancouver exhibit. The purpose of the exhibit is to interest the public in knowing more about the exchange of goods, culture, ideas and philosophies through the ancient Silk Routes and how that has given shape to the world and city we live in now. The exhibit will run from April 16 to May 31 at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Vancouver. It is being organized by the Vancouver Asian Heritage Society as part of their annual explorASIAN festival.
