Children of the French Buddhist community march before the installation of the relics of Buddha Sakyamuni offered by Thailand, at the Great Pagoda (Grande Pagode de Vincennes) in the Vincennes forest, in Paris, on May 17, 2009. The relics were offered by Thailand to the West as predicted by a prophety to symbolize, after 25 centuries, the passover of buddhism from the Orient to the West. The Vincennes Pagoda becomes the 'greatest buddhism center' in France. AFP PHOTO MIGUEL MEDINA (Photo credit should read MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images)
