Hi folks,
I've always found this a fascinating subject ever since a friend lent me her older version of the book,Healing With Whole Foods.
Sarira Pearls are said to be found in the ashes of the most highly evolved spiritual masters that have made the most advanced use of The Three Treasures,Jing, Qi and Shen, that human beings are capable of.

Here is a video of different Sarira pearls,


Stanford University researchers, had the opportunity to study the energy surrounding Sarira and is written about in, Epoch Times and Unexplained Mysteries
As always, thank you for visiting this thread.

This thread was inspired by DOCHOLIDAZE's thread We all know the name... was he super human?

it is my first time reading about that,
thanks for bringing this to ats!

it is really amazing what some people achieved during their lives and these pearls, if true, are a testament to mastery of human condition and nature.

Dissolving egoistic desires or transferring them into altruistic ones.

Perfect realization of the body, speech and action for the benefit of other sentient beings.

There are many fire rituals in eastern religions for burying the dead and many wondrous miracles around them but I have not read about these pearls till today.
But if any one is curious one can find a lot by googling about buddhism and their death rituals when Lama dies. (Lama = spiritual master = guru)

a reply to: UniFinity I'm glad you found this interesting. Buddha is said to have had around 10'000 of these, his were probably very lovely. I wondered about how in the video, some were more appealing to the eye than others... I wonder if it has to do with a Masters character because I've read about enlightened people that were gruff or rough around the edges.
Thank you for reading and your reply!😊

Yes, it is a very interesting thread for me, as I like to read all sorts of spiritual related stuff...it is a pity that these things are not more talked about here.

enlightenment is only the beginning of something new and truthful after a life of illusions so in this context...your intuition might be right on the spot and it makes a lot of sense to me also now that you mentioned it.

a reply to: UniFinity It's easy to skip by spiritual stuff when life gets in the way, speaking for myself anyway. Sometimes it is easier to go through the daily world without any self discovery. My perspective is that the more you can look within and uncover imbalances or buried emotion, the easier it is to let things go and move on into greater clarity. This is all hard stuff for me. The reason I bring all these things up is because I've always daydreamed about becoming a master or mastering myself at least... in all aspects like emotionally, mentally, physically... I'm not quiet sure what spiritual would be.
Hope you don't mind my going on and on... I really like what you said about enlightenment being the beginning of something new and truthful and I'm thinking a lot now.

no, i don't mind!
it is great that you are pondering that, we all should as often as we can in my opinion.
Death comes unexpectedly and for almost all but few (enlightened : ) ) , a bit too soon...we should keep that in mind once in awhile as we are wasting too much time in general in my contemplation.

I like your insight and from my experience it is a lot like it.
But It shouldn't be hard at all after a while, we need to accept that we don't know anything at ALL about real nature of reality and just go with the flow and practice with meditation and study about these things as there are many man or women in all religions who have been there and done that, we just need to find them, learn to filter them (use intuition if they are real/fake) and check what fits us and grow and learn. Simple, but it takes a bit of hard work and perseverance.

When we really think about it, we know only as much as we read and have no personal experiences of our being, for most people in our society, it is as shallow as waking, sleeping and death.

Spirituality is knowing about more subtle nature that is happening during all these three states "within and without" in my opinion.

a reply to: UniFinity Thank you! You've given me much food for thought about contemplation of Now and taking care of my being and action in this world because of it's fleeting nature. I often want to strive for longevity, but that is not guaranteed and longevity without well being is somewhat of an effort in futility(IMHO)... so thank you again for the thoughtful words, I am inspired and comforted.

and I am delighted.

If you learn to cultivate real pure faith in yourself (or a real Guru/Lama) than nothing should be impossible.
I wish you will find true inner happiness and peace in your life and those around you!

a reply to: Davg80 Yes, I believe they are very sacred and according to Kevin Lo's article on, Atlas Obscura he was not allowed to take a picture of them when he visited a museum in Hong Kong.
Thank you for reading this thread and your reply!😊

a reply to: Davg80Whoa! Just read your link. That is really interesting and I'm trying to figure out what the Monk's message was... something about life preserved even after death, maybe?

I've never heard of these before and religious cynic that I am, they strike me as a way of stratifying humans by order of piousness. But they're intriguing little things are they not?


Thanks for teaching me something new.


ETA - You've linked that article already, I'll take this one down.

a reply to: beansidhe I just read that article! Thank you for posting it. I really find these pearls fascinating in that they are said to either grow or diminish, depending on the keepers intentions.
Thank you for your reply.😊

maybee his own sarira pearl is still inside him preserving his body, maybee there life force is inside the pearl still, i also read how these monks can turn sexual energy into ki or chi or something through meditatin, some sort of life force, all fascinating stuff and something i hope to experience one day when i stop procrastinating my life away, i have some good books on meditation.

a reply to: Davg80 That's a good possibility... The monks positive intentions in life could of been in his very life force which kept the pearl in his body and in turn the pearls give his body life force even though his soul has passed on...? Really interesting stuff, I wonder if in preparing for his death, the monk knew about what was going to happen with his body staying so well preserved.

yes i think the whole idea of these pearls is really interesting you should perhaps repost with a different heading maybe unexplained pearls found in the ashes of monks or masters or something, people are more inclined to visit posts with unexplained in them as they think that they will be able to explain it, in my opinion of course, i just think this post deserves more attention

a reply to: Davg80 Yeah, it wasn't such a catchy title... too late for me to change it, oh well. I'll continue to look into these things and if I get a new insight in regards to the Sarira pearls maybe I'll post a new thread, but it would have to be a bit different than this thread.

a reply to: DOCHOLIDAZE1 Glad you stopped in!😊 I wouldn't have posted about these things if I hadn't read your thread. They are definitely not scary objects.
Cursed items are a very interesting subject too... if your feeling spooky. I'm gonna do a search here, I bet there are some good threads on cursed objects.
