Buddhist relics touring world, stopping in Reno

Maitreya Loving Kindness Tour, a free exhibit of ancient and sacred relics of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni and 44 other Buddhist masters from India, Tibet and China, is visiting Reno on its tour around the world.

The display includes 3,000 relics, including those offered to the tour by the Dalai Lama, which are more than 2,600 years old, a collection from the Sakya Reliquary in Tibet and also from Meiktila Museum in Burma. Most of the relics resemble multi-colored pearl-like crystals that in Tibetan are called “ringsel” and in Sanskrit known as “Sarira.” It’s believed relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom and are deliberately produced by the master at his death. The crystal relics were found among the cremation ashes of these masters.

To see the display, go to Dharmakaya Buddhist Center, 501 W. First St., Suite A., Reno, from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 17, when an opening ceremony is also planned; or from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 18; or from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 19. The entrance to the center is on Ralston Street.
