Enjoy RAMM after hours in the company of a larger-than-life Burmese gold-laquered Buddha and hear a talk by a British-born Buddhist meditation master.

Over the last few decades, Buddhism has found a space - if not a home - in contemporary culture. Indeed, RAMM displays a number of fascinating artefacts related to Tibetan Buddhism in its World Cultures collection. Lama Jampa Thaye considers how we connect with these objects, without their wider context. How do the teachings of the Buddha translate into practice in today’s way of life? Does Buddhism lose its power when we reframe it for the modern day?

Lama Jampa studied with Karma Thinley Rinpoche and His Holiness 41st Sakya Trizin, Head of the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism. He has trained students in the Sakya and Kagyu traditions of Tibetan Buddhism for several decades, and has overseen the founding of Dechen community groups and centres nationally and internationally, including Exeter. He has written several books, and is a member of the international teaching faculty at the Karmapa International Buddhist Institute in Delhi, India.

Tickets are available online or from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum reception in person or by phone using a credit or debit card on 01392 265858 during opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.
