Emptiness: Dhamma talk with the Theravada Buddhist monks from Wat Buddharangsi of Miami

Wednesday, September 9th 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

The practice of meditation and the study of the Dhamma (Buddha’s teachings) have been important influences in artist Glexis Novoa’s recent work. Both have informed his approach to the observation of phenomena in space and the nature of ephemeral actions.

As part of the exhibition Glexis Novoa: Emptiness, Novoa and the Lowe Museum will host the venerable monks from the Theravada Buddhism Temple Wat Buddharangsi of Miami, who will give a Dhamma talk on the Buddhist concept of emptiness.

During the event, the monks will offer a Dhamma talk along with chanting, and the audience will be invited to participate in a brief guided meditation.

11:30 Offering lunch to the monks at the UM campus cafeteria.

12:30 Monks visit the Art of Asia gallery, Lowe Museum.
