The first class of Gopal Sukhu’s Queens College course, East Asian Civilization, offered at the Rubin Museum of Art’s Education Center this Fall semester, got off to a lively start last Friday evening, August 26. During a fascinating three-hour class, Professor Sukhu skillfully guided fifteen Queens College students and five Rubin Museum of Art staff back in time, approximately 4,000 years, to the ancient peoples of the Indus Valley region. Referring to texts, such as the Vedas and the Upanishads, the group explored how the customs and belief systems of these ancient peoples provided the foundation for the future development of Hinduism and Buddhism.
