Maitreya Heart Shrine Relic Tour: A 10-day touring display of ancient and sacred relics of Buddha Shakyamuni and other Buddhist masters from India, Tibet, Korea and China will stop by the home decor shop Living in Art (3200 N. Miami Ave., Miami) starting Friday. On view until Nov. 17, the 1,000-plus artifacts resemble pearllike crystals that Tibetans call "ringsel," and are believed to hold the spiritual qualities of compassion and wisdom. Eight of those artifacts, rescued from Tibet in 1959, are on loan from the current Dalai Lama. An opening reception will run 6-8 p.m. Friday. 866-718-5773 or
