Maitreya Project Heart Shrine Relics Tour Coming to Victoria

Please Share this Information with other. This is a rare opportunity for people to view the precious Buddhist relics in our community and it is the goal of the Maitreya Project that as many people as possible can share the blessing energy of the Relics.

From loving kindness then you can achieve freedom!
By consciously having a good heart, we experience peace in ourselves and in our world.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of the Maitreya Project


A precious collection of sacred relics of the Buddha and many other Buddhist masters is currently touring the world. These relics were found among the cremation ashes of Buddhist masters. They resemble beautiful, pearl-like crystals. Buddhists believe relics embody the master’s spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom and are deliberately produced by the master at his death.
