Jade Buddha in Worcester, Mass., for only New England Appearance in World Tour
WORCESTER – The Jade Buddha for Universal Peace, a four-ton statue carved from an 18-ton boulder of translucent jade, will be exhibited in Worcester, its only New England appearance, from May 22 through June 5, at the Linh Son Temple, 16 Ruthven Avenue.  To be in the presence of the Jade Buddha for Universal Peace, which has been personally blessed by the Dalai Lama, promises to be an incredibly moving experience for all.”

The tour began in Vietnam in March 2009. Eventually the Jade Buddha will go to its home at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.
The tour of the Jade Buddha is dedicated to universal peace. It is hoped that the Buddha’s presence will inspire everyone who sees it to find peace in their home, their schools and work, their family, and in their own hearts.

Activities during the exhibition of the Jade Buddha include a dedication together with many other activities on May 22, dharma talks throughout the week, opportunities to experience the chanting of the monks accompanying the statue, exhibition of relics, vegetarian meals and ceremonies to honor those who have passed on.
What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

The bodhi resolve is like empty space, this because its marvelous qualities are boundlessly vast.  Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 39
