Śarīras, also known as Buddhist relics, are small spherical objects that are believed to be the physical remains of Buddhist Masters and Saints.

 

According to Buddhist teachings, when a person dies, their physical body disintegrates but their spiritual essence remains. This essence is believed to be manifested in the form of small pearl-like objects. These relics are considered to be sacred and hold great spiritual significance in many Buddhist traditions.

 

Śarīras can take many forms, including crystals, pearls, and even small bones. They are often found in the ashes of cremated Buddhist Masters and Saints or in their remains.

 

Due to the holy nature of these objects, they are often housed in temples and shrines, where they are venerated and worshiped by Buddhist followers.

 

The belief in the power and significance of Śarīras has been an important aspect of Buddhist practice for centuries. It is believed that the presence of Śarīras can bring about spiritual benefits, including healing, protection and enlightenment. Many Buddhists also believe that Śarīras have the power to inspire devotion, and deepen one’s understanding of Buddhist teachings.

 

In some Buddhist Traditions, the practice of collecting and preserving Śarīras has become an important part of religious ritual and devotion. It is believed that by collecting and venerating Śarīras, one can cultivate spiritual merit and gain blessings from the Buddha and other enlightened beings.

 

The color of Śarīras vary from white to dark purples, both transparent and translucent. Śarīras have been known to mysteriously multiply grow or decrease in size while inside their containers, depending on the purity of the keeper’s thoughts.

 

One interested incurrence is a Tibetan Saint Chosyang Dorje Rinpoche, who spent the last 45 years of his life practicing strict meditation, and was believed to attain Enlightenment, while alive Śarīras began to form on his body. Following his death in 2010, over 2000 pearl-shaped Śarīras were found dangling from his hair and body.

 

Scientific analysis of Śarīras, or Buddhist relics, has been a topic of interest for many researchers over the years. The scientific analysis of Śarīras has yielded interesting findings that shed light on their origins and composition.

 

One of the most significant findings from scientific analysis is that Śarīras are made up of various minerals and elements including calcium, phosphorus, and iron. This suggests that the Śarīras may be composed of the ashes of cremated remains or the minerals and elements present in the body of the deceased.

 

Another interesting finding is that the Śarīras exhibit unique patterns and structures when viewed under a microscope. These patterns and structures suggested Śarīras may have been formed through natural processes such as crystallization or precipitation.

 

While scientific analysis has provided valuable insights into the composition, and origins of Śarīras, it is important to note that their spiritual significance cannot be fully explained by scientific means alone.

 

Śarīras holds great significance for many Buddhists and they are venerated as sacred objects that have the power to bring about spiritual benefits and deepen one understandings of Buddhist teachings.
