Photographic exhibition on Avalokitesvara/Guanyin: Feminine symbolism in Buddhist Art.

Avalokitesvara is the most popular Mahayana Bodhisattva and his cult has played an important role in the growth of Mahayana Buddhism and art The images of Avalokitesvara in India are not feminine, although the body has a sensual form. The well known painting of Padmapani in Cave No.1 of Ajanta no doubt has a sensuous body, but taken as a whole, looks a male Bodhisattva. The paintings of the famous artist Ravi Varma, do not show Hindu Gods as strongly masculine. Essential features of manliness like muscles, broad shoulders are present but there is a touch of conspicuous feminine quality in the images.
It is not known exactly when the Guan-yin came to be regarded as female deity for the first time. Majority of the scholars are of the opinion that the transformation of Guan-yin into female deity took place about the 11th century A. D. But this seems to have been the product of a long process and this might have been influenced by many factors combined to bring the sexual transformation.

The exhibition will be inaugurated on 27th March, 2017 at 10.30am.

Venue : IGNCA Gallery No. 2 of Twin Art Galleries, C.V. Mess, Janpath, New Delhi

: Manmohan Chadha. National award winning film critic, author and screenwriting authority (FTII, Pune). A Cinematic Kaleidoscope: Writings of B.D. Garga

So Many Cinemas: The Motion Picture in India (1996) is a collector’s delight. In it, the kahanikaar B.D. Garga chronicles many cinematic milestones. The text and images point to a beautiful cinematic legacy but would’ve certainly been lost had it not been for Garga’s efforts. The concluding lecture of the series talks of how he constructs compelling film criticism from fragments of films. The narrative that frames the memorabilia in his collection is as important as the images themselves.

ACARYA ABHINAVAGUPTA MILLENIUM CELEBRATIONS the third national seminar organized by IGNCA on: Abhinavagupta: The Genius of Kashmir in collaboration with Kalakshetra Foundation, Chennai & Bharata-Ilango Foundation for Asian Culture, Chennai (BIFAC)

Abhinavagupta is a shining example among those Indian figures who though belonging to a regional tradition, profoundly impacted the whole subcontinent. While Abhinavagupta came from the particular tradition of Saivism that flourished in Kashmir even since his ancestors were brought from Central India and given agraharas to establish a line of scholarship and spiritual practice, he was honoured and respected even in his life time as virtually the greatest acharya of Saiva darsana by the whole country. The rigour with which his ideas on theatre, music, dance and tantra were studied all over the continent in the subsequent centuries, carries to this day the momentum of interest in his works and personality.

The successful beginning of the celebrations was marked by the first national seminar organised in J&K in collaboration with the Dept. of Philosophy and Culture, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University, Katra (J&K) on 4th-5th September, 2016. The second national seminar in the series was organised in collaboration with Bharat Bhavan at Bhopal from 4th to 6th November 2016. The three days main event of the international seminar along with an exhibition and performances dedicated to Acarya Abhinavagupta was organied in the premises of IGNCA from 15th to 17th December 2016.
