Peepal Tree which the convenor brought from Nalanda University.

Quotes by the Convenor, Mr.Benoy K.Behl-“I am really thankful to

IGNCA and Tibet House to be a part of this effort. In this country we

have a vision of life. As a matter of fact, in ancient history there was

no religion in ancient India. The concept of religion is a modern thing

and a vision of life is a reality. We see the logic in Buddhism tradition,

the use of logic is not in any other tradition. I hope this event will be a

marker and make the world understand that we are not divided place

and there is comparison and logic in it.”

About the exhibition: This exhibition is to present the Buddhist Culture

from 19 countries. It is amazing to see how the heritage is travelled.

These are ideas travelled without the sword of political and economical

means. These are ideas that held so calmly about journey of life.

Quotes by H.H Dalai Lama-“I would like to say thanks to Benoy K Behl

to promote Buddhism in whole Asia. If we talk about this institution

Nalanda University, it has immense potential. Nalanda remains the top

institution not in religious teachings but in academics also. Its heritage

which followed Nalanda tradition has travelled later from India to

Tibet, China, korea, Mangolia , some republics in Russia etc.. Over

1000 years Nalanda knowledge is intact. All my followers, monks should

not accept my teachings out of faith or respect rather they should

understand it and then follow my teachings. “

The Dalai Lama – “Nalanda is very important Tradition which existed.

Nalanda’s structure is very beautiful and most importantly what has

been taught there. From 13th

he proclaimed the legacy of Nalanda University. Nalanda University

is very important because of the physiology, astrology, psychology,

cosmology etc. which makes Nalanda a different thing.”
