The International Maitreya Project has been created to increase loving-kindness and compassion within our hearts and throughout the world. It is also an opportunity to bring local Buddhist communities together to build relationships, and to increase the awareness of our innate goodness and wisdom. This is a rare opportunity to view these relics, which were found among the cremation ashes of Buddhist masters. They resemble beautiful, pearl-like crystals. Some Buddhists believe relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom.   Come be a part of this very special event.
