So where is the problem with the bones being from Christian graves? Here in Greece people are only buried for five years and then the remains are dug up, cleaned and either placed in boxes and stored (for a fee) at the cemetery grounds or thrown into a hole along with other unclaimed remains (or the remains of those whose family cannot afford tht "rent" to have them stored). If one was to use these bones would the offerings be disgusting? I mean, really, the chodpa of old would just find the bones scattered in charnel grounds anyway. How would they know who the bones came from and if they were a Buddhist or not?Nemo wrote:An average male femur is 19 inches and a female is 17. The femurs being sold are as short as 8 inches long. They are neither from condemned criminals or 16 year old Brahmin girls. They are not authentic. Most were robbed from Christian graves. Some are obviously from children.
I doubt She will be pleased with your disgusting offerings.
