In Buddhism, holy relics refer to the physical remains or the personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni preserved for the purposes of veneration. Relics embody the spiritual qualities, compassion and wisdom of the Buddha. Buddhists believe that by making offerings and prayers to Buddha’s sacred relics, they will be blessed and protected. At the same time this allows the fruitioning of beneficial karmic imprints from previous lives, especially those related to the Buddhas and holy beings.

Throughout history, relics have played an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Shamanism and other religions. For example, in Christianity, sites with the presence of holy relics are major pilgrimage destinations for adherents of the Christian faith because it is believed that the relics can bestow protection and the intercession of the sanctified deceased.

In Buddhism, relics are venerated for similar reasons. After Buddha Shakyamuni entered clear light and was cremated, his relics were highly sought after by the eight royal families of the period. Therefore, in order to avoid disharmony, Buddha Shakyamuni’s holy relics were divided into 10 parts: eight from the body relics, one from the ashes of the Buddha’s cremation pyre and the other one from the container used to divide the relics. These relics were distributed among the eight royal families who promised to enshrine them in stupas and worship them.

The enshrinement of Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relics in China started with the tooth relic which is now housed in Lingguang Temple, Beijing. The acquisition of Buddha’s relics reached their peak during the Tang Dynasty. Over a period of 200 years, eight emperors of the Tang Dynasty oversaw this acquisition. These were Emperor Gaozong, Emperor Wuhou, Emperor Zhongzong, Emperor Suzong, Emperor Dezong, Emperor Xianzong, Emperor Yizong and Emperor Xizong. According to the Tang Dynasty’s records, China had 19 holy sites since the time of the Indian King Ashoka. These sites housed various relics of Buddha Shakyamuni. Unfortunately, only a handful of these sites exist today.

Therefore, holy relic sites are rare. Many Buddhists make it their priority to visit these precious relic sites located on and off the beaten path across China. Most of the sites are made famous by the display of Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relics, while others are sites that highlight precious Buddhist artefacts and statues. Pilgrimage sites where the Buddha’s relics are venerated attract an increasing number of followers from all over the world. A total of 10 holy sites of China are listed here in this article:

  1. Tooth relic at Lingguang Temple, Beijing
  2. Grand True Relic Pagoda at Famen Temple, Shaanxi
  3. Red Buddha relic discovered at Yunju Temple, Fangshan, Beijing
  4. Rare skull relic enshrined in Foding Palace, Nanjing
  5. Buddha’s bone relic at Ayuwang Temple, Ningbo
  6. Relics unearthed below the Leifeng Pagoda, Hangzhou
  7. Relics at Tianmen Mountain Temple, Hunan
  8. Relics at Yunyan Temple, Huqiu, Suzhou
  9. Relics at Ganlusi Temple, Zhenjiang
  10. Relics at Tian Tan Big Buddha, Lantau Island, Hong Kong

By making pilgrimages to these holy sites, spiritual aspirants will be able to make a connection with the spiritual qualities of the Buddha and the Buddhist saints in order to further strengthen their spiritual conviction. So while planning for your next holiday, consider incorporating one or more of the places shared here to make the trip both enjoyable and spiritually enriching. It is with this thought in mind, I wish to offer my heartfelt gratitude to His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche for the precious opportunity to share this information about holy relic sites of China on his blog. I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to Valentina, Pastor Niral, Pastor Jean Ai and Pastor Adeline for their time, valuable advice, guidance, editing and uploading of this article.

1. Tooth Relic at Lingguang Temple

Buddha Shakyamuni’s tooth relic in Lingguang Temple

Lingguang Temple, or aptly known as the Temple of Divine Light, belongs to a group of eight Buddhist temples and monasteries scattered across the Cuiwei, Pingpo and Lushi hills at the foot of Beijing’s Western Hills. It houses one of the two precious Buddha Shakyamuni’s tooth relics found in modern times. The other tooth relic is enshrined in Sri Lanka. This 1,200-year-old Buddhist temple is situated in the famous Badachu (Eight Great Sites) at the foot of Beijing’s Western Hills and the place is praised as the most prominent among the eight, though it is not the largest.

According to written records, after Buddha Shakyamuni passed away, among the cremation ashes, four tooth relics were discovered, one of which was brought to Sri Lanka by the Buddha’s disciples. Another tooth relic was brought to Uddiyana (now known as Pakistan) and later to Yu Wen (today’s Hotan County in Xinjiang, China). In the middle of the 5th Century, the prominent monk Fa Xian traveled to Xinjiang and took the tooth relic back to the capital of the Southern Qi Dynasty, Jian Kang (now Nanjing).

After the Sui Dynasty was established, the tooth relic was sent to Chang’an and later moved to the capital (present-day Beijing) of the North Liao Dynasty (907 – 1125). Finally, it was preserved in the Zhao Xian Ta (Immortal-Solicited Pagoda) of Lingguang Temple in 1071.

The octagonal Immortal-Solicited Pagoda is approximately 51m high and has 13 layers. Its base was constructed with white marble, reaching 2.7m above the ground. Within the hall of the pagoda temple is a seven-story structure, and within this structure is another hall in which a vajra seat and painted screen is placed. It is in this second hall where the Buddha tooth relic is now preserved inside a one-meter-high pure gold pagoda.

Today, the Immortal-Solicited Pagoda has become a symbol of Badachu. Whenever someone mentions Badachu Park, people think of the pagoda.

Basic information for tourists
Lingguang Temple’s operating hours are 05:00 to 19:30. Visitors can get there by taking city buses no. 347, 389, 622, 972 or 958 and get off at the nearest terminal, or take no. 489 bus and get off at the Badachu Stop.

 

2. Grand True Relic Pagoda at Famen Temple

The Famen Temple is located 110 kilometres west of Xi’an in Shaanxi Province. It was originally built by Emperor Ling of the Eastern Han Dynasty and has a 1,700-year history. Famen Temple was originally constructed in the 3rd Century to enshrine Buddha Shakyamuni’s holy relics. During that era, King Ashoka, after uniting India, divided the Buddha’s relics into 84,000 parts and distributed them to different places in order to promote Buddhism. All the places that received the Buddha’s relics were instructed to build pagodas to enshrine them.

Buddhism later became very popular during the Tang Dynasty, and many devotees extolled artefacts of Buddhism from ancient times. It is at this time the knuckle of the Buddha’s middle finger came into the possession of the Tang Emperors and was kept at Famen Temple in Xi’an city Shaanxi province. Famen Temple naturally became a royal temple and a sacred place that is admired because of the prized holy relic enshrined inside the temple pagoda. As a matter of fact, the temple pagoda was known as “Grand True Relic Pagoda” because it enshrined the only piece of finger bone relic of Buddha Shakyamuni. The temple was rebuilt during the Tang Dynasty to its largest scale that comprised of 24 courtyards with a capacity of 1000 people.

Sadly, half of the pagoda collapsed in August 1981 and in 1986, the government decided to rebuild it. The reconstruction began in February 1987. By May 1987, four relics were found after the opening of an underground palace. The finger bone of Buddha Shakyamuni, two white jade relics and another relic from a famed monk, along with 2,499 national treasures buried during the Tang Dynasty were uncovered after being buried for 1,113 years. The three relics are called “ghost relics” as they were placed together with “true relic” in order to protect the latter. The true relic appeared to be yellow-coloured, with bone-like secretory granules. It was identified by experts to be the true Buddha’s relics.

These unearthed treasures are of great importance in the historical authenticity of early Buddhism. Famen Temple was officially reopened in 1988 and an international Buddhist meeting was held in the same year to pay respect to Buddha’s relics.

Basic information for tourists
The operating hours are adjusted based on the season: from 1st March to 30th November, the temple opens from 08:30 to 19:00; from 1st December to 28th / 29th February, the opening hours are from 09:00 to 18:00. Famen Temple is located in Famen town, 10 kilometres north of Fufeng County. Visitors may want to consider taking Tourist Bus no. 2 at Xi’an Railway Station and getting off at Famensi Museum station. The bus departs at 08:00 and returns at 15:00. Bus tickets cost RMB25. Another alternative is to take Long-distance Bus at Xi’an West Bus Station.

 

3. Red Buddha Relic Discovered at Yunju Temple

Also fondly known as Temple of Cloud Dwelling in the West, Yunju Temple was first built in the early 7th Century. It is located in Fangshan District in the southwest of Beijing and is famous for the stone sutras. The temple contains a total of 12 pagodas from the Tang and Liao Dynasties and three tomb pagodas from the Qing Dynasty. Having been reconstructed and enlarged several times, the site became an architectural complex that consisted of five courtyards and six main halls. During the Sino-Japan War, the temple suffered great damage but was restored to its original glory after the war ended.

The Buddha’s relics at Yunju Temple are one of the “three precious” in China and attract worldwide attention. The other two are the Buddha’s sacred relics in Famen Temple and the Buddha’s tooth relic in Lingguang Temple.

The Red Buddha’s body relics at Yunju Temple were discovered in Leiyin Cave in 1981 and are the only ones of their kind treasured in a cave as the reliquary (instead of in a pagoda). In addition to the Red Buddha’s relic, two bone fragments believed to belong to Buddha Shakyamuni are enshrined at the site. The two bone fragments were unearthed under the Tiankai Pagoda in Fangshan District of Beijing.

Additional information
The temple showcases an extensive collection of Buddhist texts, of which the best known are the stone sutras. Work to engrave the stone sutras was started by the monk Jing Wan. After Venerable Jing Wan’s death, his work was continued by his students. 1,122 books and 3,572 volumes of Buddhist sutras were inscribed on 14,278 stone tablets. Visitors can see these tablets through the windows of the closet. The stone sutras escaped damage from the Sino-Japan War because they were buried underground.

Yunju Temple also houses a significant collection of paper Buddhist sutras and wooden Buddhist sutras. The collection of paper Buddhist sutras were either printed or handwritten during the time of the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644), by Bhikshu Zu Hui. The sutras for which he used his tongue’s blood as ink are considered the most precious. The collection of wooden sutras named Long Zang (Dragon Tripitakas) date back to between 1733 to 1738.

Basic information for tourists
Yunju Temple operates from 08:30 to 17:00 in the summer and from 08:30 to 16:30 in the winter. Visitors can get there by bus no. 836 from Tianqiao in south of Beijing. Entrance tickets are priced at RMB40.

A rare piece of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni’s skull has been permanently enshrined at Foding Palace in Niushou Mountain in China’s eastern Jiangsu province. The relic was unearthed in 2008 when archaeologists found a mausoleum among the ruins of Changgan Temple, which was built in the former Song Dynasty (420 – 479). The holy relic was enshrined at Qixia Temple before finally being moved to Foding Palace on 27th October 2015.

The reliquary, which is almost four feet high and one-and-a-half feet wide, matches the description of the reliquaries commissioned by King Ashoka to house the holy remains of Buddha Shakyamuni. According to written records, King Ashoka collected all the holy relics of Lord Buddha and stored them in pagoda-shaped reliquaries before distributing them to different parts of the world.

Basic information for tourists
Foding Palace is located in Niushou Mountain, Dongshanqiao Town, Jiangning District, Nanjing, China. There is an entrance fee of RMB10 per person to access the Niushou Mountain Forestry Park. It is open daily from 07:00.

 

5. Buddha’s Bone Relic at Ayuwang Temple

The Ayuwang (Ashoka) temple is located east of Ningbo in Zhejiang Province. The temple sits near the Luhua Peak of the Taibai mountains, one of China’s five important Buddhist mountains. It is the only remaining temple in China named after the Indian king and Buddhist proselytiser. The original temple was apparently built during the Taikang period of the Western Jin Dynasty in 282 CE, though traces of it have long disappeared. Its prized possession is a parietal bone of Buddha Shakyamuni. It is one of the reported 84,000 reliquaries made by King Ashoka, India’s major Buddhist patron. The reliquary is a seven-step stone stupa, about 20 inches high, placed in the Hall of Stupa.

According to historical records, King Ashoka, or the ‘King of Zhouli’ as he was known among the Chinese, reportedly considered the area of Ningbo as a place of peace and harmony. Soon Hui Lian, a senior monk, while searching for a place for a temple, heard a sound from the ground. On closer inspection, he found a hot spring and the temple miraculously appeared. The temple began to expand in the following centuries. Finally, during the reign of Emperor Liang Wudi (502 – 549), he renamed it “a yu wang”. Ayuwang Temple still carries the many ‘layers’ today characterised by expansion over the centuries.

In 1993, when the eastern part of Ayuwang Temple was refurbished, calligraphy from the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties were also discovered. The temple also has a unique calligraphy collection, including from Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty – a most prolific calligrapher and writer – who visited the site in the 18th Century.

6. Relics unearthed underneath the Leifeng Pagoda

Leifeng Pagoda is an octagonal five-story tower on Sunset Hill south of the West Lake in Hangzhou, China. Originally constructed in the year 975 CE during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period under the instruction of King Qian Chu of Wuyue Kingdom to celebrate the birth of his son. The structure collapsed in 1924 but was rebuilt in 2002.

During the Ming Dynasty, Japanese pirates attacked Hangzhou. Suspecting the pagoda contained weapons, they burned its wooden elements, leaving only the brick skeleton, as can be seen from West Lake paintings of Ming Dynasty period.

The disrepair of Leifeng Pagoda in the 1920s

Leifeng Pagoda was one of the 10 sites of the West Lake because of the Legend of the White Snake. Due to superstition that the bricks from the tower could repel illness or prevent miscarriage, many people stole the bricks to be ground into powder, further weakening the structure. Hence, on the afternoon of 25th September 1924, the pagoda finally collapsed.

In October 1999, the provincial and municipal governments decided to rebuild Leifeng Pagoda on top of the ruins of the old one. Since it was rumored for years that there was a mausoleum below the structure, a radar was used to investigate and validate its existence. On 11th March 2001, the mausoleum was excavated and many artefacts were found, most notably the gold- and silver-coated hair of the Buddha.

The new pagoda was opened on 25th October 2002, and it became a place of veneration because of the precious relics discovered in the underground chamber.

8. Relics at Yunyan Temple

Tiger Hill, also known as Surging Sea Hill, is a large hillock covering about 3.5 acres (14,100m sq) and only 118 feet (36m) in height. One of the highlights of Tiger Hill is the pagoda that stands on the hill’s summit. It is famously known as the Pagoda of the Yunyan Temple. As the oldest pagoda in the vicinity of Suzhou, it has come to be a symbol of the city and has the distinction of being China’s Leaning Tower.

Built during the Northern Song Dynasty (959 – 961), it is a seven-story octagonal tower following the style of the timber pagodas built during the early period of Tang Dynasty (618 – 907). It is 158 feet (48m) high and for the past 400 years, it has leaned 3.59 degrees to the northwest. In this temple, the legendary ‘secret-coloured ceramic’ artefacts were discovered.

The ‘secret-coloured ceramic’ is a very fine porcelain vessel from the ancient kingdom of Yue which was located in today’s Zhejiang province. It was made for imperial use only. The vessel is 8.9 cm high, sitting on a saucer of 6.6 cm high. The diametre of the upper rim is 14.9 cm, and the bottom is 9.3 cm. Lotus petals were carved on the outer surface of the bowl and the saucer. From the unglazed bottom, one can see the piece is made from very fine clay, and this gives the ware a very pure and even texture. The olive-green glaze brings out a warm lustre similar to jade.

Unfortunately, the recipe to make the ceramic was lost during Tang Dynasty. A poem by Lu Guimeng suggests that this type of ceramic has a green glaze like the “essence of trees from a thousand hills”. It is said to be coloured in a “similar way to Yue celadon, but brighter and lighter”.

    Dear friends, there is also a Buddha tooth relic in Singapore, very beautifully enshrined, respected and appreciated by the people and the government of Singapore. It’s very near to us, so it’s a great blessing!

  2. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 29, 2016 at 12:27 am

    The amount of Buddha relics in China is a staggering indication of how this land China had been pervaded by Buddhism. China was a land that was heavily influenced by the Buddha Dharma, across all stations and levels of society.

    May Buddhism once again be infused by the Buddha Dharma and produce dharma teachers for the benefit of the Chinese.

    Thank you Stella for writing this informative article. An eye opener for me to learn about the meaning of holy relics preservation and it’s interesting to get to know more about the various holy relics sites located within China.

  5. Alice Tay on Aug 30, 2016 at 2:43 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Stella for this sharing about 10 holy sites of China having the Buddha Shakyamuni’s sacred relic.

    From this post, 2 places stood out to me :
    1. Relics at Tian Tan Big Buddha, Lantau Island, Hong Kong
    2. Relics unearthed below the Leifeng Pagoda

    The 2 places as mentioned above become more famous because of many of the films and televisions’ producers especially from Hong Kong and China like to choose these 2 places as the shooting location. Therefore, the exposure for these 2 places are become more as compared to the others.

    Everyone is encouraged to follow the guidelines from this post to visit these holy places. Through the visit to make offerings and prayers to Buddha’s sacred relics, may everyone be blessed and protected by the Buddha and have the opportunity to plant the karmic seeds to learn and practice dharma in order to achieve the qualities as Buddha.

  6. Pastor KH Ng on Aug 25, 2016 at 2:46 pm

    What I noticed is that China is really preserving the Buddhist sites very well. More and more of these sites are preserved, promoted and maintained very well. This is unique because of the abundance and rich Buddhist traditions in China.

    I rejoice and every time I think of China I think of these magnificent sites in my mind’s eye.

  7. Pastor Adeline on Aug 25, 2016 at 5:59 am

    China was once a Buddhist country that gives rise to erudite masters and eminent monks who taught and preached the dharma well. As a result, the emperors also took on Buddhism and preserve the dharma by supporting the monastic educations and system. Realizing that the Buddhadharma was taught by Buddha Shakyamuni and the significance of the Buddha’s relics, historically, many emperors of China started to invite the Buddha’s and His disciples’ relics, while others maintained them. Without their efforts, we wouldn’t be able to bless by any of them today!

    As we are in the kaliyuga where dharma is less appreciated by many, those who come across dharma or practice it are mostly superficial and minimum. By going to pilgrimage sites with the Buddha’s relics, we received the powerful blessings and purification for dharma to take effects in our mindstream.

    While visiting the holy sites is beneficial, the best pilgrimage is the home of our spiritual guide where the living Buddha resides. When we are around our spiritual guide, we receive teachings directly that expedite our purification and transformation process. We should make use of such rare opportunities to learn and improve. Personally, I prefer to venerate my teacher when He is alive than to venerate His relics after He passed.

  8. Paul Yap on Aug 24, 2016 at 10:47 pm

    These holy sites are such a wonderful place to make pilgrimage to, receiving blessing and purify immense karma. The pilgrimage is about much more then just the destination however, the journey itself is actually the most important part of the practice. Pilgrimage is traditionally done on foot and often takes weeks or months to complete. The pilgrimage, like the practice of meditation, is an opportunity to spend a significant amount of time concentrating on self purification.

  9. sweekeong on Aug 24, 2016 at 2:47 pm

    Thank you for the wealth of well researched information. I didn’t know China has such abundance of holy relics for everyone to visit and make prayers to. I am never a tourist myself but this one of the good reason to travel.

  10. sonny tan on Aug 24, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    Thank you Stella for this article on relics, it is well known to all Buddhist that relics are found during cremation of very high masters, enlightened beings, Rinpoche and high lamas.
    When I was with my previous religious order they held a relic ceremony where close to five thousand attended. I cannot remember which religious person’s relic it was but it was said to be very old and very precious. The relic was encased in a stupa and it was up on the stage beyond the reach of the attendees.
    During the ceremony the head abbot recited some prayers and the necessary Buddhist salutation and after a while the relics began to dance up and down in the stupa. The whole dancing was captured in live telecast in the auditorium, it lasted a few seconds, it is really stupendous and defies human logic how this lifeless thing dances.
    I have also seen many displays of Buddhist relics of the famous masters where some of the cremated parts of the bone have turned into white shinning crystal like substances.

  11. Sofi on Aug 24, 2016 at 6:29 am

    Thank you Stella for this informative article on the relics at the various sites in China. You provided very good details right down to the opening times and how to reach the place of interest. I wish I was able to read your article soon as I was at the foot of Tianmen Mountain temple and did not make the effort to climb the steps up to the temple. I thought that the attraction was the hole in the mountain that jet planes could fly through. The tour guide mentioned that the steps were steep and he also said a man from Singapore fell to his death due to the slight drizzle that made the steps slippery. As it was drizzling, majority of us decided that view the hole from a far is good enough. Had I known that the temple up the steps had Buddha’s relic, I would most certainly attempted the climb. Would be worth it for the blessings!

    Now with these knowledge of where some of the relics are located, I will be able to visit the temples holding such precious blessings when I next have the chance to visit China. May the Buddha’s relics holding such potent energy bless those viewing by triggering of their imprints for the Dharma.

  12. Jason on Aug 22, 2016 at 2:18 am

    This is a very informative write up which will inspire more people to know about Buddhism especially in Buddha Relic field. There were so many temples in China which enshrined Buddha’s relic.I think is the time to do pilgrimage on these temples.
    I hope can visit all these temples in my coming trip.
    Thanks Stella for this inspiring write up.

  13. Sock Wan on Aug 21, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    Thank you Stella for this compilation on the locations of the Buddha’s relics. It’s so interesting that so many relics are now in China, and it is no wonder that Chinese culture has so much Buddhism influence.

    To pay homage to a holy site or relic is not a guarantee to enlightenment, because we still have to put in effort to put Buddha’s teachings in practice in order to gain realisation. However paying homage to a holy site or relic is to remind us of how much difficulties Buddha had gone through in the process of gaining realisation of how we can be liberated from sufferings. Thus, we should not give up easily no matter how tough the journey to liberation is. In addition, we also get positive vibes from these holy sites or items so that we can gain more and deeper realisation on Buddha’s teachings.

    • Pastor David Lai on Aug 22, 2016 at 10:47 pm

      Dear Sock Wan,
      It’s more than just positive vibes. Haha! We gain a powerful blessing of the Buddha at the site of his relics and powerful purification as well. The blessing plants seeds for the Dharma to open in our mindstream and especially if we make powerful Dharmic aspirations at these sites and they will open at a later time when the karma is ripe.

      Since most of our Dharma practice is very little or superficial, going for pilgrimage will be a powerful blessing for us. However, in the end, the most powerful place of pilgrimage is not these temple relics but the home of our spiritual teacher. If our devotion is stable and strong enough, our guru’s abode has the most powerful blessings on our mindstream.

      • Wei Theng on Aug 25, 2016 at 8:38 pm

        Thank you Pastor David for sharing the advantages of getting the blessings from holy relics and pilgrimage so that it will plant the seeds for us to get closed to Dharma or help us to open up our Dharma seeds soonest as well as purification.

        When I went to pilgrimage at Nepal early this year, I was asked to make strong aspirations & motivation and do a lot of offerings while I was at the pilgrimage sites, whether it is for ourselves or others.

        You brought up a very important point that wherever our Guru is, that’s the most powerful place of pilgrimage. I am so blessed that I am at our Guru’s mandala at Kechara Forest Retreat that has a lot of holy relics and healing energy as well as blessings for me to advance spiritually.

        Last but not least, would like to thank Stella and Rinpoche for this article that has very complete information about the temples with holy relics in China. Hope I can be there one day too.

  14. JP on Aug 21, 2016 at 4:51 pm

    Dear Stella,

    Thank you for the interesting article. I didn’t realise China has so many holy relics! What I noticed is that China is very good in keeping track of history and has a culture of restoring historical buildings. China is very blessed to have possession of Lord Buddha’s holy relics.

    For those who like to travel, it’ll be even more beneficial if they include visiting these holy places so that seeds of enlightenment are planted in their mind stream.

    Best regards,
    JP

  15. Echeah on Aug 21, 2016 at 4:04 pm

    Thanks Stella for the comprehensive research on this. Certainly, they will be wonderful places to visit in future. Even the remains of the bodies of enlightened beings can continue to bless and benefit long after they had entered clear light.

  16. William Chua on Aug 21, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    China is a place where Buddhism spread after the passing of Buddha. It is a place with many holy places like Mount Wu Tai, Mount Emei etc. However, the temples listed here are also very holy as it contains holy relics of the Buddha. This article provides information that is insightful to travellers who wants to go on a pilgrimage. Before this, I have not heard or know any of these temples.

    I hope to visit these 10 temples in the near future.

  17. Fong on Aug 21, 2016 at 1:05 am

    Tianmen Mountain Temple houses three relics of Buddha Shakyamuni, and his heart disciples, Venerable Shariputra and Venerable Maudgalyayana. I loved the pictures of Tianmen mountains from the first moment i saw it. And, to know that there are these precious relics there is amazing. This is the one place to visit if unable to visit all the sites mentioned above.

    But, I guess, all these places that house the various holy relics make great pilgrimage sites and places that we should aspire to visit.

    Thanks for the wonderful information contained in this article.

  18. Edwin Tan on Aug 20, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Dear Stella and Rinpoche,

    Thank you for such informative article about the holy, relic sites throughout China.

    China is a vast country and I am sure there are many more temples that house precious relics from Lord Buddha.

    I will definitely want to visit all the sites mentioned.

    Thank you.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this interesting post to bless our minds and creating the causes for us to visit the holy relic sites of China. Thank you Stella Cheang for putting the effort and time to compose the rich facts of Buddha Shakyamuni’s relics and other enlightened beings’ relics located at the 10 holy sites in China. These 10 holy relic sites of China has gone through many revolutions during the Chinese Kingdoms and yet, the Buddha Shakyamuni’s relics as well as other enlightened beings’ relic can be found, restored and maintained until today to benefit and bless many sentient beings of our current age with the compassion and kindness from the Buddha since more than 2500 years ago. All the transportation details provided are very beneficial for those travelers who seek for spiritual wisdom and blessings. I am always drawn to the history of ancient China and would like to create the causes and opportunities to visit the holy relic sites in China or other parts of the world. May many people able to visit and pay homage to these holy relics for blessings and protection in spiritual practice.

    Thank you with folded hands,

      Hi Rei,
      It is very beneficial to venerate these holy relics sites not just for leisure sightseeing but also to get blessing for yourself and your family members too.

      • Rei on Aug 18, 2016 at 9:56 pm

        Yes. We went to Hongfa Temple in shenzhen and Guiyuan Temple in Wuhan.

        I make a wish and pray for guidance of my life from Buddha. 🙂

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

    John is so brave and compassionate. He risk his life to save the rabbit and that shows he appreciate live very much despite it is an animal. Eventhough he lives in the street to beg for food but he never forgets his 2 pets a dog and a rabbit. He takes care of his pets with whatever he begs. Inspiring to all of us to never take things for granted and not abuse animals.

    I am also proud with the Ireland government in taking action to punish the 18 year old man who abuse and tried to kill the rabbit. This will create the awareness to all that this is a cruel action and that laws will be imposed against these people.

    Geshe Thupten Lama was one of the pioneers who founded Tibetan schools in exile and served as a school teacher from 1963 to 1994 for which he received high commendations from the Tibetan exile government. Shocking what they did to this old erudite master Geshe Thupten Lama after serving them for years.

    >>>Who is Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen?<<<
    Dear sincere dharma students around the world and friends, After the great master, meditator, teacher, logician, yogi, siddha and erudite scholar Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was ‘eliminated’ by the government of the 5th Dalai Lama over three hundred years ago in Tibet, his reincarnation line was banned. That does not mean he stopped reincarnating as he continued in a string of high and beneficial lamas until present day, although he was not allowed to use his title and name. He has his main mind incarnation and many of his body, speech and activity incarnations also. His reincarnations certainly continued as confirmed by great beings such as Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Panchen Rinpoche, Scholar Lobsang Tamdin, etc. Read more… http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/who-is-tulku-drakpa-gyeltsen

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

I am in the process of creating beautiful Dorje Shugden and Kechara Forest Retreat watches at this time. So we can take precious protector and Kechara Forest Retreat wherever we go and be blessed everytime we see what time it is. I am perfecting the designs with a great team and will update when done but these are just some samples that arrived. Feast your eyes! Tsem Rinpoche
                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately. Choose to practice Vajra Yogini now with the preliminaries. You can start right now: http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/inspiration-worthy-words/starting-on-vajra-yogini-now.html  Much care, Tsem Rinpoche

Wow this meditator in his cave in front of a painting of Yamantaka draped with a white khata of respect. He sits among bones to remind him of impermanence and our future. The bones inspire him strongly to let go of all attachments in this life and focus on dharma, meditation and liberation and he is doing so. Very beautiful and inspirational. Tsem Rinpoche

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

    ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་བཀའ་སློབ་དོན་སྙིང་དེ།།གང་གི་རྣ་བར་བདུད་རྩི་མོད།།འོན་ཀྱང་འགའ་ཡི་རྣ་ལམ་དུ།། བྲག་ཆ་བཞིན་དུ་འགྱུར་སྲིད་མོད།། ཚང་མས་ཚར་རེ་གཟིགས་རོགས།། Kyabje Denma Gonsa Rinpoche telling people that it is important to have guru samaya. It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama on Propitiating Protectors & Oracles
    This was on FB and I came across it. His Holiness said in Tibetan institutions there is a lot of propitiating protector/oracles and this is not what Buddhism is about. So they are putting Nechung/Tema oracles within the video to say what is he talking about when he does it himself. This is confusing is the message to his people. TR
