About this Article
Dharma Master YongHua's modest Lu Mountain Temple became a repository for the thousands of colorful crystals, two teeth and a single hair that are believed to have come from the body of the Buddha himself. A congregant offered up the collection that he’d painstakingly gathered for years. Since the shariras’ arrival, there have been quite a few people around. Hundreds from around the country arrived earlier this year when the monks put the relics on display.
