Buddhist relic exhibit opens in Tucson

ARIZONA DAILY STAR, Dec 12, 2007

Tucson, Arizona (USA) -- A Tucson exhibit will showcase relics said to date back to Siddhartha Gautama, the historical founder of Buddhism who lived about 2,500 years ago.

The Heart Shrine Relic Tour's opened on Wednesday at the Anjali
Yoga Studio and Day Spa, 330 E. Seventh St.

The free exhibit continues through Saturday and Sunday, from 10
a.m. to 7 p.m., at Anjali.

More than 1,000 tiny pearl-like beads, venerated as the cremated
remains of Buddha and several of his disciples, are part of the
display.

Buddhists say the crystals, known by the Tibetan term ringsel, form
out of the remains of a cremated person who has achieved spiritual
purity, and being in their presence can result in spiritual
transformation.
