Buddhist Relics World Tour

Hiroshima, Japan. Los Angeles. Even little towns in rural northern California like Arcata. Sacred relics of Buddhism are on the road and coming to a town near you.

The Maitreya Project Relic Tour brings holy relics of the Buddha (the Buddha?) and Buddhist masters to cities worldwide in order to share loving kindness:
A unique and precious collection of more than 1,000 sacred Buddhist relics will be permanently displayed in the Heart Shrine of the completed Maitreya Buddha statue in Kushinagar. Meanwhile, it is the wish of the Spiritual Director of the Maitreya Project, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, that the collection should travel throughout the world to bring the blessings of the relics and the message of loving-kindness to people everywhere.

The relics will be in Arcata, Calif., April 27-29, 2012, at the Veteran's Memorial Building 1425 J Street. Opening ceremony is Friday from 6-8 p.m. Blessings will be offered all day and admission is free.

Buddhist holy relics may stop in your town! Visit maitreyaproject.org and click on "Relic Tour" for more information.
