Buddha (563?- 483?BC), Indian philosopher and the founder of Buddhism, born in Kapilavastu, India, just inside present-day Nepal. His name Gautama Buddha is a combination of the family name Gautama and the appellation Buddha, meaning “Enlightened One.” One day in 533, according to tradition, he encountered an aged man, a sick man, and a corpse, and he suddenly realized that suffering is the common lot of humankind. He then came upon a mendicant monk, calm and serene, whereupon he determined to adopt his way of life and forsake family, wealth, and power in the quest for truth. Accompanied by disciples, Buddha traveled through the valley of the Ganges River, teaching his doctrines, gathering followers, and establishing monastic communities that admitted anyone regardless of caste. Buddha’s teachings have influenced the lives of millions of people for nearly 2500 years.

Musical instruments such as percussion, strings, and flutes have always been a part of the Buddhist tradition. Of the many musical instruments that have played a role in Buddhism, perhaps percussion instruments are the most important. Traditional Buddhist temples, for example, all have a large Temple bell or gong found within the shrine area and smaller ‘sawari’ gongs, in the altar areas. At major gatherings, it is not unusual to hear gongs and cymbals used to introduce the Sutra (scriptural narrative).

Now the universal symbol for theatre or drama, these masks date back to ancient Greece to between 500 and 300 BC, a period known as the Golden Age of Greek drama. They were worn by actors to play different roles or to show different emotions, simply by switching masks.
Plays were performed in purpose built open air theatres to honor the god Dionysus and often before audiences of 10,000 or more. Greek theatre and plays have had a lasting influence on Western drama and culture.
