MERIDA, Yuc.- “The Great Maya World Museum” will host “Maitreya, tour of loving kindness” which includes an exhibition of ancient relics of historical “Siddartha Gautama Buddha” and other relics of Tibet, informed the coordinator of this event, Gabriel Cervantes.

At a press conference, Cervantes said that this is one of the most valuable collections of relics of the Buddha and his son Rahula (who also came to be considered an “enlightened”) and other Buddhist teachers who have already gone through more than 64 countries worldwide and Mérida will be the host.

“This is a unique opportunity to view these relics that were found among the cremation ashes of several teachers and shaped crystals resembling pearls” said to Notimex.

“Buddhists believe that these remains embody the spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom of the great masters and have been deliberately produced to share their blessings with people”.

The relics are inside transparent glass boxes and can be seen clearly; are placed around a golden life-size statue of Maitreya Buddha and can be seen from April 24 to May 4 at the premises of the “The Great Maya World Museum”
