Sample text

The listener, a Sa skya monk, wrote a letter to the Tibetan Cabinet in which he wondered if there was a political motive behind this statement. He referred them to a rare Tibetan history text, The History of sTag lung (sTag lung: 192195). It mentions four tooth relics, one of which was in Kalinka (modern Orissa). ) carried it to sTag lung in central Tibet, where his successor placed it in a stÒpa. In another late development (January of 1999) in the Tale of the Tooth, some Sa skya teachers now remember the monk Kunga.

Are the extras wisdom teeth? 5. During the time I was writing this paper, my boss—a lapsed Catholic like me, but also an avid collector of Asian antique art who cruises Internet auctions—told me that someone was offering for sale a “class one relic” (an actual part of the body, in the terminology of the Council of Trent) of Saint Thomas Aquinas. Did I want to make a bid? ”) We stared at the image on the screen, but all we could see was the reliquary, which was sealed. Papers of authenticity from the Holy See came with it, however.

He didn’t have any evidence that the tooth was genuine, but Hsing Yun has enormous political influence in Taiwan, so he didn’t really know what to say. However, he now had some more information about the monk who gave the tooth to Hsing Yun. He is a monk, a Sa skya monk, named Kunga. But he’s not a lama, not a rin po che. And he’s not from India, but from Nepal, where he has lived for decades. On the day of the handover of the tooth, this monk Kunga flew to Bangkok, not from New Delhi, but from Kathmandu, and he flew out of Taiwan almost immediately after the ceremony at Chiang Kai-shek Airport.
