Featuring an exceptional set of paintings in the intimate format of album leaves from 18th-century China that illustrate the meditation practice of Sarvavid Vairochana, a primordial Buddha central to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

The presentation at the Rubin is the first time that these important paintings are exhibited in the United States.
