Saliva Relics

An old Buddha head (from a statue) was dug up in Pakistan. No, it wasn't cut off by the Taliban, but rather dates way way back, maybe all the way to Bactrian Greek times when the first Budda statues were made, since a coin from that era was also found in the vicinity.

And this exhibition of Buddha relics in Malaysia includes saliva relics. Excellent.

And nine Buddhist leaders including Bob Thurman speak out on issues of the day. Buddhist leaders don't have to be calm and polite all the time, and they're always engaged.
