The exhibition will take place on May 28th, 2011 at the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana. When the founder of the TMBCC, Thubten Jigme Norbu--the eldest brother of the Dalai Lama--had the dream to build an interfaith center that all religions could call home, people from many faiths donated land, money, building supplies, and labor. In 1979, the Cultural Building was constructed by Mennonites, Conservative and Liberal Christians, Muslims, and Jews.In 2003, the Dalai Lama dedicated the Kumbum Chamtse Ling as an Interfaith Temple to promotes interfaith peace and harmony.
In his most recent visit in May 2010, the Dalai Lama asked that the center be used as a hub for artistic and cultural events for people from all backgrounds. Hence TMBCC strives to be a temple not just for the religiously inclined, but also a temple for the mind of the intellectually and artistically inclined -- spirituals, seculars, pagans, atheists and agnostics alike.
