"Bones of the Buddha" (PBS TV)

Mara Schaeffer, Wisdom Quarterly; "Secrets of the Dead" (

Could these be a portion of the ashes?
The mystery surrounding the bones [cremation relics] of the Buddha dates back more than 100 years, when colonial estate manager William Peppe and his workers began digging at a mysterious hill in northern India. They found a reliquary jar with an inscription that appeared to say that these were the remains of the historical Buddha himself. Renowned historian Charles Allen sets out to solve this extraordinary mystery, once and for all. Also airs Saturday, July 27 at 11:00 pm on PBS Orange County.
