Using architecture and art, this program studies the birth of Buddhism in India and its spread to other lands where it has flourished. The Mahabodhi Temple, in Bodh Gaya; the Great Stupa at Sanchi, India; the Borobudur Temple—the largest Buddhist shrine in the world—in Indonesia; and the Chuang Yen Monastery in New York state, with its 37-foot-tall marble statue of The Enlightened One surrounded by 10,000 smaller statues, are featured.
