The Gyalwang Karmapa Pays Homage to the Buddha’s relics



February 3, 2017 – Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India




The Gyalwang Karmapa traveled to the Jayshree Mahabodhi Vihara today to be blessed by and to bless the relics of the Lord Buddha, which were brought to the Society’s temple so that the local people and visitors from abroad could worship them. The Karmapa offered prayers inside the main temple and received the blessing of the relics, enshrined in a lustrous golden stupa. He then walked outside in a procession to a brightly decorated platform raised above the road. A beautifully caparisoned elephant passed by him with the relics, which were offered to the Karmapa to bless. The occasion was marked by a joyous feeling that these precious relics had returned once more to this site of his enlightenment.
