ROSEMEAD, CA – The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection [1] is returning to WeiMountain Temple, from Saturday, February 2nd to Sunday, February 10th, 2019. Free showings will be open daily for 9 days, from 10am-7pm. In addition,special times to meditate with the relics will be held 9-10am & 7-8pm,every day. Wei Mountain Temple is located at 7732 Emerson Place, Rosemead, CA.

Special events to commemorate the NewYear includes chanting at 9am on February 2nd, the colorful Lion’s Dance on the first and last days of the exhibit, and special relic blessings throughout each day.

Since the Relics exhibits began in 2013,Bodhi Light International has received additional donations of Shakyamuni Buddha’s relics, the historical founder of Buddhism, which feature sacred teeth and several bones of the Buddha. In addition, The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection also includes thousands of gem-like relics of the Buddha, as well as his family members and close disciples. These precious crystals are found in the ashes of enlightened sages after they are cremated. Most of the relics in the collection come from Asian countries such as Myanmar, Thailand,Sri Lanka, Vietnam and India. This is the largest collection of relics in the United States and has attracted thousands of visitors since 2013.

All are welcome to come and receive blessings for the New Year and to meditate in the presence of the relics. The peaceful energy of the Buddha’s relics can counterbalance the stress that is prevalent in our society, as anxieties and fears about the future increase. The Buddha taught that we each have incredible goodness and wisdom within ourselves, but this goodness is obscured by our worries and attachments. The powerful energy of the relics can help us quiet our mind, experience peace, and return to this inner goodness that we all possess. Meditation instruction will be available on request.

Lu Mountain Temple is home to Bodhi LightInternational, Inc. (BLI), a non-profit organization dedicated to presentingMahayana Buddhism to an international audience. Dharma Master YongHua is the abbot of Lu Mountain Temple and founder of BLI, and has been teaching free Chan meditation classes since 2005.
