Photographs of eminent monks and nuns are regularly displayed and enshrined in temples and homes throughout the Chinese Buddhist world. This practice is connected with ideas about the special efficacy (ling 靈) of great persons and things associated with them. Drawing on recent scholarship on Buddhist relics, the present article investigates the production of relic-like objects related to the bodies of eminent Buddhist monks and their miraculous quality in the form of photographs.
