IT IS TIME FOR A PILGRIMAGE!

The Rubin Museum of Art in New York presents a unique exhibition 
 PILGRIMAGE AND FAITH, BUDDHISM, CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM, July 1st through October 24, 22011.  http://rmanyc.org
 
The Rubin always has the most interesting and challenging exhibits accompanied by films, lectures and seminars. 
 
 
Pilgrimage and Faith explores these important spiritual journeys in three of the world’s largest religious traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. While reflecting on the shared goals of personal development and communal solidarity evident in each tradition, the exhibition also highlights their particular ritual practices and artistic expressions.
 
The exhibition features diverse examples of objects from each faith, including a Chinese Buddhist pilgrimage map, a Tibetan Buddhist hand prayer wheel, a twelfth-century Christian reliquary casket, Muslim clay prayer tablets.
