EC Statue Exhibition 2015

Every year in June, the Europe Center opens the villa’s doors to everyone interested in Tibetan Art with its precious Buddha statues and scroll paintings (tib. thangka). Each Sunday afternoon, guided tours around the monument-protected art nouveau building attract many visitors from the Allgäu region and beyond.

After learning a lot about Buddhism and its ancient discipline of Asian art now also practiced and supported by the Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation in the West, the visitors took the opportunity also to have a look at the new meditation hall in the rebuilt barn of Gut Hochreute. Here, many also participated in a short guided meditation, before enjoying home-made cake and coffee in the garden or the cafeteria.

If you would like to know more about the art and deep meaning of thangka painting and Buddhist statues, the full-color book “The Life of Buddha” offers deeper insight and is available online.
