Donald Rubin says that he is a better person because of art.
Question: How does art influence what you believe?
Rubin: It’s just not Buddhism. It’s Hinduism because we have Hindu works. We have Bon, B-O-N. We did a big show of Bon Art. We did a show comparing Chinese painting with Tibetan painting. So, it is my belief structure is that the art is really my belief, the spirituality coming out of the art. I think I’m a much better person for it. I think I’m a much more compassionate and understanding person, but I am not basically what I would consider a religious person. And I don’t consider myself a Buddhist. I feel like I have a Buddhist soul, but I don’t have a Buddhist Guru or a Lama Guru.
