September 2023 Relics Exhibit Slideshow
The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection Exhibit
This Labor Day weekend, Wei Mountain Temple and Dharma Treasury Temple will hold a public display of The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection. This free exhibit will be open Saturday to Monday, 10am-7pm. In addition, special times to meditate with the relics will be held Saturday to Monday, 9-10am & 7-8pm.
These additional times have been designated for meditation; the exhibit hall will maintain a quiet atmosphere conducive to meditation and prayer. Newcomers to meditation, as well as experienced meditators, are welcome to join. Meditation instruction will also be available on request.
The 10,000 Buddha Relics Collection features thousands of gem-like relics of Shakyamuni Buddha, the historical founder of Buddhism, as well as his family members and close disciples. These precious crystals are found in the ashes of enlightened sages after they are cremated. This special exhibit was featured in Season 5, Episode 10 of the History Channel series “The UnXplained” with William Shatner.
This is the largest collection of relics in the United States and has attracted thousands of visitors since 2013. Many report that they can sense the energy of the relics and feel peaceful and blissful when in their presence. The Buddha’s relics thus provide the ideal atmosphere for meditation. Meditation is a powerful tool for self-healing that allows us to recover from the stress that is so prevalent in our world today.

The 10,000 Relics Collection is intended for the benefit of all beings. Thus Bodhi Light International has launched the Maha Stupa Project to build a stupa complex for the protection and preservation of these sacred relics. The Maha Stupa will be a major monument to Mahayana Buddhism in Southern California.
