This story goes back to my early twenties. A friend of mine came back from Nepal. At the time, many of my friends, were travelling to India and Nepal. He had brought some small stuff with him. Little buddhas, some gems and the odd piece of jewelery.
In this friend’s house, a youngster was hanging around. Suddenly the friend took out some bowls. They were made of human skulls. These were very nicely decorated with some gemstones. I believe it might have been lapis lazuli and turquoise embedded in silver. Personally, I firmly oppose the smuggling or trading in these holy relics. Let them stay in the culture they belong. Let them remain holy.
