The Sydney city office of The Buddhist Federation of Australia and 60TH Dhammachai Education Foundation at the corner of Castlereagh St. and Hay St. will soon turn to be a holly place. The Foundation was granted permission from a collector in Queensland to display her enormous private collection of the Buddha’s Relics and the relics of his disciples.
This exhibition was held at Brisbane Meditation Centre in Wooloowin, Qld last September for the Buddhists to pay respect and for interested general public to see and learned more about the Buddha’s relics. The exhibition was very impressed by all, of the many different relics as it is rare to see such a large collection of this kind.
The Buddhist Federation of Australia and 60th Dhammachai Education Foundation would like to share this special occasion – the New Year, with the Buddhists and people in Sydney to pay respect to the relics, make the New Year resolutions and get blessing for a Happy New Year.
The Exhibition will be held from 24th December 2011 to 1st January 2012 with the Grand opening on 24th December at 10.00am. The normal open hour is 10.00am to 6.00pm.

Mr Ninlapong on behalf of 60th Dhammachai Education Foundation told the reporter that the admission fees of $20 will be partly contributed to the Brisbane Meditation Centre, the primary guardian of the relics to assist the building of a new temple in Brisbane for its community assistance and partly contribute to the building of the centre in Thailand to facilitate the propagating of the righteous knowledge and practice in creating peace around the world. So, to the audiences of this Exhibition, not only that they can gain merit by paying respect to the Buddha’s relics, they will also accumulate the merit in helping establish peace in the world. It is a good start of the New Year 2012.
