Thank you ishara_lk,

I visited some Buddha relics while in Myanmar at the beginning of the year inc. the Buddha's colar-bone relic at a monastery at the base of Mandalay Hill, the hair relic at Bautatong Paya and the hair relic buried within Shwedagon Paya. And according to legend, Shwedagon Paya contains relics of the last four Buddhas.
I also saw the relics of many arahants at the main temple on Mandalay Hill.
Thanks again for sharing,

Ben

I was offered a 'Buddha relic' on my birthday fa few weeks ago, it looks something like a bone with a black dot on it, apparently this type is known to multiply, when I get back to the monastery I will take a photo of it to show you all.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Here in Taiwan, there are traffic jams every weekend because so many people want to pay their respects to the Budda tooth relic in Foguangshan:
