Buddhadharma : Fall 2009
fall 2 00 9 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly news Culture news Culture news Culture Between the covers of Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind as part of its May events marking the fiftieth anni- versary of Suzuki Roshi’s arrival in America, San Fran- cisco Zen Center created a lively art installation celebrating his classic, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind. The installation grew out of the Page Project, which asked readers to send copies of pages of the book that included their under- lining, highlighting, asterisks, annotations, post-it notes, drawings, insertions, etc. The resulting display presented all of the first edition’s 148 surfaces (covers, jacket, and everything in between) drawn from forty copies of the book from individuals and libraries. About 250 people viewed the installation and were drawn into animated discussions about how the mark- ings said something about the myriad ways the book had affected readers, says genine lentine, co-curator of the show with Todd gilens. A number of people also sent in written accounts of how Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind influenced their life. The project has been such a suc- cess that Zen Center has decided to continue to collect pages and recollections in preparation for a celebration next year of the fortieth anniversary of the book itself. Scans, photocopies, or recollections may be sent to email@example.com or Page Project, c/o SFZC, 300 Page Street, San Francisco, CA 94102. news Culture news Culture news Culture arrival in America, San Fran- cisco Zen Center created a Zen .

The Robert H.N . Ho Family Foundation gallery brings together the museum’s world-class collection of Buddhist sculpture, which has never before been displayed in a unified way. “Because Buddhism spread to almost every Asian country,” says lead curator John Clarke, “this is an opportunity for us to show many of our sculptural masterpieces from across Asia, and to properly interpret and provide a framework for understand- ing Buddhist sculpture.” The pieces, dating from 200 to 1850 CE, include a rare shrine from the now- destroyed royal palace in Mandalay, Burma, and a monumental, gilt bronze seated Buddha from Tibet (below). For Clarke, it’s difficult to say which piece in the collection most resonates with him. “If forced to decide on one,” he says, “I’d choose the thirteenth-century sand- stone head from central Thailand [left]. The serenity and intense inner focus of the face wonderfully evokes states of Buddhist meditation and epitomizes the Buddha as a spiritual master.” The gallery was made possible by a lead donation from the Hong kong-based Ho foundation, which seeks to foster an understanding of Buddhist philosophy and values through arts, culture, and education. To coincide with the gallery opening, the foundation also sponsored a series of events in london titled “The Many Faces of Buddhism,” featuring the International Buddhist Film Festival, which was held in Britain for the first time. ©VICTORIAAlBERTMUSEUM
