****************************************
  「唵嘛呢叭咪吽」,觀音菩薩的六字大明咒,在藏傳佛教傳播的地區,幾乎無人不知,無人不曉,是藏傳佛教的一個重要標誌。藏傳佛教形成於藏族地區,並以藏語文為主要施教、修學工具,與漢傳佛教並稱為大乘佛教的兩大支派。此派主張大小乘兼容,並以大乘為主,顯密結合,先顯後密,追求即身成佛。
  本展覽以藏文《龍藏經》為主要展件,搭配其他典籍、書畫、法器、金銅佛等文物,分為六單元展出,本院所藏藏傳佛教文物非常豐富珍貴,此次展出係擇其精尤作選樣陳列,希望觀眾能從中一覽其特色。

This exhibition centers on the Kangxi Kangyur (the Tibetan Dragon Canon), and includes such artifacts as Buddhist texts, paintings, ritual objects, and gilt-bronze statues. It comprises six sections. The first, “Unparalleled Treasure,” showcases the decorative and wrapping accessories of the Kangxi Kangyur, and the second, “Three Turns of the Dharma Wheel,” the contents of the Kangxi Kangyur. The third, “Beyond the Four Seas,” highlights the Buddhist classics from which Tibetan Buddhist texts were translated, along with Chinese, Tangut, Manchu, and Mongolian versions of translated Tibetan Buddhist classics. The fourth, “Tibetan Chants on Chinese Land,” covers Chinese-language books of Tibetan Buddhist mantras, and the fifth, “The Venerable Community,” images from the Kangxi Kangyur’s cover planks, ritual objects, and paintings, which are grouped into five categories, including buddhas, bodhisattvas, and guardians of the Dharma. The sixth section, “Preserved Treasury of Scriptures” is a situational presentation that features a library of Tibetan Buddhist texts based on the reproduced Co-ne version of the Kangyur.

The National Palace Museum boasts a rich and rare collection of Tibetan Buddhist artifacts. What is presented here is a fine selection of the crème de la crème of the holdings. It is hoped that the exhibition will offer the audience a glimpse into the distinctive features of these objects.
