(RENO) - Actual remains of Buddhism founder Gautama Buddha (died around 486 BCE) will be touring Reno (Nevada, USA) from January 25 to 27.

These relics, which resemble pearl-like crystals, were found from among the cremation ashes of Gautama and other Buddhist masters, according to co-host Matthew Fisher. These include eight relics of Buddha from Dalai Lama’s personal collection. This exhibit of precious collection of sacred relics, to be held at Reno Buddhist Center (RBC), is sponsored by Dharmakaya Buddhist Study Group of Reno and RBC.

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has been invited to be part of the invocation ceremony on January 25. Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, says that Buddha’s “middle way” has lead large populace of the world towards the path to truth. We heartily welcome the relics of this great and enlightened soul to Nevada.

After Nevada, this Maitreya Heart Shrine Relic Tour will visit Mexico, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, Indonesia, etc. Collected by Lama Zopa Rinpoche over many years, eventually these relics will be enshrined in a 150-foot bronze statue of Buddha to be built in Bodhgaya (India), the town where Buddha gained enlightenment:

“Visitors often report experiences of inspiration and healing when in the presence of the relics…the powerful effects of the relics open their hearts to compassion and loving-kindness”, event announcement points out. “The purpose of the Relic Tour is to inspire people of all spiritual traditions and paths to come together to experience the blessings of the relics”, it adds.
