Buddhist ritual implements are essential equipment for solemnly adorning the Buddha, holding memorial services, and mastering the Buddhist teachings. Their range is wide and diverse: from temple ornaments to priests’ daily necessities. These ritual implements’ forms are designed to be suitable for practicing Buddhism, but in them we can also discover aesthetic qualities. This exhibition introduces ritual implements, primarily from our collection, used in a variety of settings and explores the relationships between the Buddhist teachings and Buddhist ritual implements’ sculptural beauty.
Through the forms of Buddhist implements, visitors will become aware of the spirit of adorning and holding services for the Buddha, of seeking to ascertain the truth and of giving, the spirit that bestows all that is good and beautiful. We hope this exhibition will be an opportunity to give thought to the ideas that people put into practice through the Buddhist teachings, in many ways.
