Sacred Buddhist Exhibit Comes To Missoula For The First Time

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

An exhibit featuring ancient relics of historical Buddhist masters from across Asia is in Missoula for the first time. The Loving Kindness Tour has stopped in 67 countries, and on Friday it kicked off at Missoula College.

Organizers said the goal is to give people of all walks life a look at these relics, which are said to bring peace and happiness to the communities they visit.

A local Buddhist center in Missoula has been working to bring the tour to the Garden City for years. It finally partnered with the University of Montana to find a venue for the exhibit.

"A lot of our centers in the organization have had the relic tour at their site, but this is the first time in Montana, and the first time in Missoula, more specifically, so it's very rare and very special," said Bob Jacobson, the Osel Shen Phen Ling Center's Missoula director.

The Loving Kindness exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
