Among all stone sutra sites in China, Mount Gangshan stands out because of the visuality it creates and the experience it affords. This paper explores the way in which the carving and subsequent placement of the Lakāvatāra Sutra across many rocks on the mountain create an immersive experience that prompts visitors to contemplate the sutra doctrine of the absence of an independent, permanent nature in everything. It shows that the design intentionally confuses spectators, making them fuse the images of Lakā and Mount Gang in their minds. This mental process makes one realize that all phenomena are but mental projections. Once he realizes this, he obtains the key to the Unattainable Country of Lakā.

Prior to joining the faculty of NYU, she taught at the University of Edinburgh, U.K. She also held several curatorial positions in the U.K., U.S., and Taiwan. Shen received her Ph.D. in Archaeology at the University of Oxford and M.A. in Art History at National Taiwan University.

A Closer Look:

Buddhist Art in Sixth-Century Shandong

2021 Sammy Lee Virtual Lecture by Hsueh-man Shen

The sixth century CE saw Buddhism and Buddhist art flourish in China despite political instability. New forms and mediums were exploited to depict Buddhist stories and doctrines. In the coastal province of Shandong, sutra texts were carved in large scale on cliffs and boulders. Meanwhile, numerous bronze statuettes were cast and subsequently buried in caches. While cave-temples and stone sutras are concentrated in the western part of Shandong, bronze and stone sculptures come mostly from central Shandong. Taking advantage of new discoveries in the region, this lecture explores the history of Buddhist art in Shandong, where distinctive approaches were developed in response to stimuli arriving from India and other parts of the Buddhist world via land and maritime trade routes during the period in concern.

Textbook Call for Judges

SIMIODE Challenge Using Differential Equations Modeling

SCUDEM VI 2021 is going on right now with hundreds of students from around the world preparing a ten minute video of their modeling efforts in response to three problems offered this year. See complete information on SCUDEM VI 2021.

We are asking for your help as a judge of three student produced ten minute videos in order to make awards of Outstanding, Meritorious, and Successful submissions. Please sign up to judge here. We will assign you three team videos on one of the three problems, but you may venture out and judge more and address other problems the students worked on. We welcome that! Last year each team received on average 8 judge reports, quite a lot of meaningful feedback! All Outstanding award teams will have their video published in our SIMIODE YouTube. See the Outstanding videos from SCUDEM V 2020 here. The judging period will run from 20 November – 5 December 2021. Total time should be a little over an hour for each judge and will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Join us and support these students in their efforts to apply the mathematics they learn and address realistic problems with quality modeling using differential equations. Thank.
