Please visit the Walter Havighurst Special Collections Exhibit Room (321 King Library) to see our exhibit in honor of the Dalai Lama’s visit to Miami University. The exhibit has several related themes. The teachings of the Buddha are illustrated with images and books from the Library’s Instructional Materials Center. The section on the Dalai Lama features selected books by His Holiness from King Library’s circulating collection. Buddhism in North American and Southwestern Ohio include newsletters, photographs, and popular magazines with a Western perspective on Buddhism. Thai Fortune Telling is the theme for three manuscript books from Special Collections. On display are folding books from Thailand. These are the sort of books that would be found in Buddhist monasteries. One book is a dream book; another is a manuscript on astrology. The third book is devoted to fortune telling. Also on display is an ancient Thai palm leaf manuscript book. This exhibit runs through the end of December.
