    WHAT ARE THE "PEARLS" FOUND IN MONKS' ASHES AFTER CREMATION? It has long been held in Buddhist tradition that accomplished monks accumulate a substance in their bodies that ordinary people do not. This substance is left behind in a monk’s ashes when he is cremated, appearing as pearl-like beads or gems.
