No matter what your religious or spiritual beliefs are: If you believe in world peace and harmony, then this event is for you. This event is all about the loving kindness that naturally emanates from all of our hearts and souls.
 
Viewing these holy relics inspires us:
  • To develop our own hearts and minds
  • To develop love, kindness, and compassion
  • To understand spiritual teachings
“This is a rare opportunity in our history to create the ripples of love that the relics represent and to share that love and compassion.”  Kevin Thoren
