Description

This exhibition showcases Buddhist manuscripts and prints held at the Cantor and in Stanford libraries, ranging in dates from around the 11th century to the early 20th century, and coming from various parts of the traditional Buddhist world, from Sri Lanka to Japan. "Buddha's Word" highlights the written word not simply as the visual counterpart to speech but as a thing of beauty and sacredness in and of itself. IMAGE: Artist unknown (Nepal, 12th C.), Pages from a Manuscript of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra (Prajnaparamita), detail, 12th century. Ink and color on palm leaf. Museum Purchase Fund, 1964.115.a
