Comment by Benoy K Behl : The year was 1995 and the National Museum commissioned me to produce an exhibition of my photographs of ‘Buddhist Sites and Art Heritage in India’. The exhibition was to be held in November that year, as part of the ‘Festival of India’ in Thailand.     
In December, 2018 my exhibition on 'Buddhist Heritage of India and of the World' is being held in December, as a part of the Festival of India in Russia. Also in December this year, the Rietberg Museum in Zurich are exhibiting my photographs of Buddhist heritage. Between 1995 & 2018 my photographs of Buddhist heritage have been held in 59 countries, by around 200 major cultural institutions and Buddhist temples. 
It has been a lifetime of documenting Buddhist heritage and showing it before the world. I have the good fortune of being known to be the one photographer who has researched and photographed the Buddhist heritage of the world, in 17 countries. 

The Publications Division of the Govt. of India have published a beautiful book of my writing and photographs on Buddhist heritage. It is entitled 'Buddhism: The Path of Compassion'.
