Exhibition Details

Manjusri, possessing the strength to save mankind from miseries, is regarded as the apotheosis of transcendental wisdom. A legend about Qing Taizu Nurhaci (the founder of the Qing Dynasty) recounts that he believed he was a reincarnation of Manjusri, had inherited such wisdom, and had changed the name of his tribe from Jurchen to Manchu. For over two centuries of Manchu rule, Qing emperors claimed to be Manjusri transformed.

The exhibition is an extension of the "Peace and Harmony" series. The Manjusri theme aims to exemplify the Chinese nation's natural instinct to pursue peace and harmony. It allows the public to appreciate the essence of such a pursuit and to achieve purification through the spiritual experience.

The exclusive artifacts on display - gold thangkas, ivory, jade and porcelain carvings as well as gold and bronze castings - are the fruitful expressions of devotion and artistic talents of ancient craftsmen. Such artifacts also evidenced the significance of the Silk Road in the development of Buddhist arts. It is expected that the exhibition will help enhance the understanding of world history and heritage, and eventually bring peace and harmony.
