7/1/2011-10/24/2011: For millennia people of all faiths have embarked on the practice of pilgrimage, journeying to a sacred place or shrine of special religious significance, while proceeding at the same time on an inner, spiritual journey. Objects associated with pilgrimage—whether works of high artistic skill or those intended for everyday use—often reveal deep human needs that transcend particular faiths.

Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam explores these important spiritual journeys in three of the world's largest religious traditions: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. While reflecting on the shared goals of personal development and communal solidarity evident in each tradition, the exhibition also highlights their particular ritual practices and artistic expressions.

This audio tour features exclusive commentary from curators Beth Citron, Karl Debreczeny, and Elena Pakhoutova, as well as original music composed and performed by Aaron Ryuko Shragge.

Along with the selected audio tour are Podcast discussions further exploring the idea of pilgrimage with Virginia Raguin, Ph.D and Frank E. Peters Ph.D.

Nice short review

All praises to Almaighty Allah. A small note is that every Muslim who has the ability physically and financially has to do so once a life.
