Cosmic

The Rubin Museum worked with the American Museum of Natural History to produce a quite amazing film. It comes at the end of an exhibition of cosmogonic bodies, maps, spheres and orbits from east and west, brilliantly put together to bring science and religion (especially of course Buddhism) into conversation. Enjoy!
The film's out-to-the-cosmos-and-back movement is one I recall being led through in an esoteric Buddhist meditation at a Shingon temple in Tokyo four years ago, though at the Rubin, of course, home is Tibet!
