BUDDHISM AND BONES

THE INFLUENCE OF BUDDHISM ON COUNTRIES  ARE  DIFFERENT BASED ON THEIR HISTORY.

IN MOST OF THE RELIGIONS AFTER DEATH NO IMPORTANCE IS GIVEN TO BONES . DEATH RITUALS OF RELIGIONS DIFFER. HINDUS HAVE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antyesti

MUSLIMS  HAVE  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_funeral

CHRISTIANS  HAVE  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_burial

BUT IN CASE  OF BUDDHISM  ONE CAN SEE DIFFERENCE  OF INFLUENCE.

MANY BUDDHISH COUNTRIES WHO CRAVE FOR BONES OF BUDDHA HAVE A VERY DIFFERENT BEHAVIOUR.

I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY CRAVE FOR BONES OR BODY PARTS.OF BUDDHA.

AND MAYBE THIS MIGHT BE THE REASON WHY THEY GIVE IMPORTANCE TO BONES AND ANIMAL PARTS IN CHINA.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been increasingly practised in many countries of the world. Some recent textbooks of TCM still recommend formulas containing various animal tissues such as tiger bones, antelope, buffalo or rhino horns, deer antlers, testicles and os penis of the dog, bear or snake bile. Usually, animal tissues are combined with medical herbs. In most of the cases, the medical use of the preparations is justified in terms of the rules of TCM. So far, little research has been done to prove the claimed clinical efficacy of TCM animal products
