The Buddhist Diaspora in India Photo Exhibit
"The Buddhist Diaspora in India" is a photography exhibition organized by Atreyee Phukan (English) and Dominik Huber (photographer) that offers a visual portal into the life and landscape of Buddhists and Buddhism in northern and north-east India. The artist gives articulation to a diverse and candid range of pilgrims and architecture in this presentation of the full-life of a people and faith His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama has spent his life serving. These photographic media join with other multidisciplinary activities across the university campus as USD prepares for the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama on April 18.
The date and time for the formal opening reception will be announced soon. This project was made possible through generous funds from the Offices of Community Service Learning and the Vice Provost. For more information contact Atreyee Phukan, ext. 7634, email@example.com.

Hurt is the collapse of an illusion. Do you trust? Do you come from a place of fear or faith?
