Mongolia getting ready to display relics of Lord Buddha from India

New Delhi: The Ganden Tegchenling Monastery, the centre of Mongolian Buddhists in Ulaanbaatar city, is planning to display the relics of Lord Buddha to be brought from India by a delegation led by Union Law and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday.

The relics are currently present in New Delhi's National Museum.

The Holy relics of Lord Buddha which are returning to Mongolia after 29 years will be made available for devotees to pay respects and seek blessings starting Vesak Day on June 14 until June 24, reports ANI.

Meanwhile, Rijiju tweeted: "Bodhi sapling presented by hon'ble PM
@narendramodi Ji in 2015 has grown up this big at Gandan Monastery in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia."

In another tweet, where the flight in which he travelled to the country is seen, Rijiju wrote: "Left for #Mongolia with the ceremonial casket of Buddhist holy relics for an 11-day exposition on occasion of Mongolia’s Buddha Purnima on 14th June 2022. After Hon’ble PM
ji visited Mongolia in 2015, the bond between both countries has become very strong."

Mongolians have expressed happiness over the initiative taken by the Indian government.

Munkhbaatar Batchuluun, administrative board member at Ganden Tegchenling Monastery, told ANI, “It is the rarest event in history, the most precious opportunity for Mongolians to witness, to get boundless blessings from it.”

Indian ambassador to Mongolia M P Singh told ANI, “The shared heritage of Buddhism has connected us and this connection has actually now become a connection of hearts. For an average, India looks Mongolia as its spiritual neighbor and that spiritual connection translates into his goodwill for India and in recent times, especially in the last 7 years, since the historic visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Mongolia this relationship with Mongolia has traversed much beyond cultural realms”.
