Sedona Selected for Final Public Exhibit Dec 12th & 13th, 2015
After 14 years, the Worldwide, H.H. Dalai Lama-sponsored (2.3 million people, 68 country) "Maitreya Loving Kindness Tour" will end with the 886th and final public exhibition taking place at Yavapai College Center for Arts & technology in Sedona, Arizona on December 12th & 13th, 2015 from 11 AM to 6 PM on both days. Opening Ceremony Saturday 11am. Closing Ceremony Sunday 5 pm.
LOCAL & WORLDWIDE SIGNIFICANCE. This is an extremely newsworthy local event of major cultural, religious and spiritual significance. Held in temples for over 2500 years, The Sacred Relics have been on worldwide tour for the last 14 years. The Maitreya Tour leadership team recently made the decision to end the tour and deliver the Sacred Relics to their final destination in India where they will be located at both the place of The Buddha’s enlightenment as well as the place of his death. Sedona was the first place in North America to host the Holy Relics in 2002, and has been selected to host the final Relics exhibition this coming weekend of December 12 & 13th, 2015. It is significant that as many as possible are notified of this final opportunity to connect with the Holy Relics by being in the presence of the Sacred Relics at the event. Alternatively anyone throughout the world can tune into the Opening and Closing Ceremony, or contribute to the collective fields of Loving Kindness by meditating at any time this weekend while tuning in via a Global Live Video Youtube feed.
SIGNIFCANCE OF TOUR: (From official press page of the tour: www.maitreyarelictour.com/press)
- "Maitreya Loving Kindness Tour is a world-wide touring collection of sacred relics of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni and many other Buddhist masters from India Tibet, Korea & China. The relics were found among the cremation ashes of these Buddhist masters. They resemble beautiful, pearl-like crystals that Tibetans call ‘ringsel.’ Buddhists believe relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom and are deliberately produced by the master at his death.
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama has graciously offered to this collection, eight relics of the historical Buddha that are over 2,500 years old. The tour also features relics from forty other Buddhist masters from different parts of the world, in all there are over 1,000 relics in this collection, making it the largest touring relic collection of its kind.
- The tour was created in 2001 by the modern day Buddhist master Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Lama Zopa collected the relics from all over the world, over a period of many years. The tour has now visited 68 countries and over 2.3 million people have visited the relics.........
- This event is multi-faith, multi-cultural and free to attend. The exhibition is intended for all walks of life and faith, to learn about and to experience these historical relics."
