This is a rare opportunity to view these sacred relics, which were found among the cremation ashes of these Buddhist masters. They resemble beautiful, pearl-like crystals that in Tibetan are called 'ringsel.'Buddhists believe relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom and are deliberately produced by the master at his death. His Holiness the Dalia Lama has graciously offered 8 relics of the historical Buddha that are over 2,500 years old to the collection. The tour also features relics from 44 other Buddhist masters from different parts of the world, in all there are over 4,000 relics in this collection. This Tour is the largest touring relic collection of its kind.
Visitors often report experiences of inspiration and healing when in the presence of the relics. While some are inspired to pray for world peace and to develop their inner wisdom, others are overcome by emotion as the powerful effects of the relics open their hearts to compassion and loving-kindness.
You, your family-members and friends are invited to this event. Please spread the good news.
