This exhibition was installed in three sections:

  • Religious — with a recreated altar;
  • Monastic — including ritual instruments;
  • Nomadic — with costumes and a traditional appliqued tent.

Tibetan monks from the Namgyal Monastery in Dharamsala created a Kalachakra sand mandala within the museum. Illustrated lectures, a Tibetan film festival and a performance by a Tibetan dance and opera troupe accompanied the exhibition.
