The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collectionone of the largest collections of its kind in the world, is at the Dharma Treasury Temple Saturday, Sept. 3 to Monday, Sept. 5.

The core of The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection came to Bodhi Light International Inc. (BLI) in 2013 through the generosity of 2 devout Buddhists. Since then, the collection has been exhibited to the public twice yearly in Southern California. Thousands of visitors have come, some traveling from around the world, to be in their presence. Now with the opening of Dharma Treasury Temple in Northern California, BLI is bringing this sacred collection to San Francisco for the first time. A portion will remain in Northern California. Dharma Master YongHua, Founder of BLI, states that the relics will bring peace, prosperity and safety to this country.

The collection features sacred teeth and bones of Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical founder of Buddhism and also includes thousands of gem-like relics found in the Buddha’s ashes after his cremation. There are also relics of his family and closest disciples.

All are welcome to come and receive blessings and to meditate in the presence of the relics. Their powerful energy can help us quiet our minds, experience peace, and return to the inner goodness that we all possess. Meditation instruction will be available on request. Buddha Relic blessings are given daily.

BLI, a non-profit organization founded by Dharma Master YongHua, established temples and meditation centers, in Southern California, South Korea, and Northern California. BLI is dedicated to presenting American Mahayana Buddhism to an international audience, and sharing the benefits of practicing Chan Meditation with all.
