International Conference on Buddhist Manuscript Cultures, January 2017

Friday afternoon some of the participants of the International Conference on Buddhist Manuscript Cultures visited our department and Martin Heijdra, Director of The East Asian Library and the Gest Collection, introduced them to a few treasures at Princeton University Library. The conference, which continues through Sunday, is sponsored by the Henry Luce Foundation, the Mount Kuaiji Buddhist Association, GS Charity Foundation, and Princeton University’s Buddhist Studies Workshop, Tang Center for East Asian Art, Program in East Asian Studies, and Department of Religion.

Here is a taste of what they saw. For more information, see the website:
