I'm not able to see the pictures - there's a pink strip in dhamma follower's post which says : "You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post"

What permissions do I need ?

Nice picture.

By any chance you have a link to the original post & file? I'm wondering about the background of the photo...like under what occassion/condition it was taken, etc.

Thanks.

This really is amzing : Apparently there have been similar manifestations at a temple in China that houses the Buddha's relics. Thanks so much for sharing! :buddha1:

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be seeing :?:
Even if my body should be burnt to death
In the fires of hell,
I would endure it for myriad lifetimes
As your companion in practice

Greetings,

I suspect it's the blurry orange things that are allegedly devas?

If the monk took only one picture, I would be very sceptical. I would think the normal response on seeing anything unusual would be to take a number of pictures from various angles.

I tried finding the picture elsewhere, with or without the devas, but I just can't find it. With two million people going to Anuradhapura for Poson, it's just going to be impossible to find that photo.

From the skeptic's point-of-view, you'd think that it would have made more of a splash if that many people were around. But hey, you never know.
