Relics exhibition in Oregon

An exhibition of ancient and sacred Buddhist relics will be held in Oregon on 24 and 26 July when the Maithrieya loving Kindness Tour, a free to attend public exhibition of relics of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni and 44 other Buddhist masters from India, Tibet and China currently touring the world will visit Oregon USA.

"People are deeply moved when they come in contact with the relics. There are so many stories. The relics have incredible benefit to the world. People want them very much." Lama Zola, spiritual director said. In all there are 3000 relics in this collection including those offered to the tour by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, more than 2,600 years old; a collection from Reliquary in Tibet and also from Meiktila Museum in Burma.

Many of these relics resemble multi colored pearl like crystals that in Tibetan are called Ringsel and in Sanskrit they are known as Sarira. It is believed that these relics embody the spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom of a master and are deliberately produced at his death. The crystal relics were found among the cremation ashes of these masters. The tour was founded by Lama Zopa Rimpoche in 2001 and has visited 68 countries. 2.5 million people have viewed them to date.
