Lama Zopa Rinpoche receives thousands of letters every year from people seeking guidance on a variety of issues. His advice is made available here, so it may be of benefit to others.
This topic contains advice on the benefits of the relics tour, which plays an important role in world peace. Rinpoche says that the relics are a manifestation of the Buddha's actions, to benefit sentient beings. By showing devotion to the relics we receive blessings, and from blessings we can receive all the realizations on the path to enlightenment. This is how the relics are bringing us to enlightenment.
