In Conversation: The Six Senses of Buddhism

Buddhist practices engage the senses. Incense wafts through the air: smell. Sculptures and paintings dazzle your eyes: sight. The ringing of a bell calls to you: sound. The stimulating flavor of tea passes over your tongue: taste. Silk brocade slides against your skin: touch. And all of this is brought together in your mind: thought—the essential sixth sense in Buddhism. Join Susan Dine, 2017-18 Mellon Curatorial Fellow and curator of the exhibition The Six Senses of Buddhism for a  conversation about the complex roles of the senses in the Buddhist journey towards enlightenment through objects on display.    

Lead support for The Six Senses of Buddhism is provided by the Japan Business Society of Detroit Foundation and the University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies.
