李木源居士的舍利子The Relics of Mr Lee Bock Guan
Headline of Shin Min Daily on 4/9/2015:
Gold and silver-coloured relics appeared in the ashes of Mr Lee Bock Guan, a great philanthropist. Reverend Guang Pin said it was his first time sighting silver-coloured relics in Singapore.
This news report established the truth that the teachings of Buddha are valid.
Mr Lee Bock Guan dedicated his entire life to the Dharma, and diligently performed virtuous deeds. He was resolute and consistent in his pursuit, thus these relics appeared after his cremation.
Relics, also known as Śarīra, are formed from the body of a spiritual practitioner who had cultivated well the Buddhist Threefold Training of Morality, Meditative concentration and Wisdom. This serves as a strong reminder that we can really attain the fruits of our spiritual practice, and that in the midst of benefiting others, we also bring benefit to ourselves as well. Even after the person may have passed on, he left behind, for us all, a strong testament that hard work and effort in spiritual training is not some fairy tale or mirage．
My dear readers and fans, this is the crystallization of one’s spiritual practice.
