The Sakyamuni tooth sarira returned to China on Saturday after concluding its fourth trip to Myanmar for 48-day public obeisance in the country. It was later carried to the Lingguang Temple in Beijing, the relic's permanent residence. During the past 48 days, the relic was worshipped by over 4 million people in Myanmar's Yangon, Nay Pyi Taw and Mandalay.
