News from True Cultivators

The News from True Cultivators exhibition features photographs, newspaper articles, and correspondence from the 800-mile, three steps, one bow pilgrimage undertaken by DRBA President Rev. Heng Sure and DRBU Dean of Academics Martin Verhoeven in 1977.

The Source of Gratitude

The Source of Gratitude exhibition features more than 90 pieces of exquisite art by Japanese women artists Kuniko Sasaki, Waguri Kawaguchi, and Haruko Tsuji. Their work is an aesthetic homage to kami, a belief that all things and beings possess an indwelling sacredness. Through their art, they hope to evoke an understanding of ikei, a renewed respect and love of nature and a spiritual appreciation of our common cosmic harmony.
