FPMT News Around the World
The Heart Shrine Relic Tour displays dozens of relics from Buddhist masters, from Shakyamuni Buddha and his disciples up to 20th-century accomplished masters familiar to FPMT students. According to the tour’s website, “The purpose of the Relic Tour is to inspire people of all spiritual traditions and paths to come together to experience the blessings of the relics.”
On Friday, October 5, the North American tour visits Plymouth, New Hampshire, for three days while the European Tour is in Manchester, UK, for three days. The relics recently visited Israel for the first time, making stops in three cities. They were also on view earlier this year in Australia and Mexico as well as several other locations in the Western and Midwestern United States.
The relics have been touring the world since 2001 and have been seen by 1.6 million people. You can see photos from recent event’s on the Relic Tour’s Facebook page.
