Using 300 million to buy a worn-out kashāya, the man was stunned by the secret hidden inside and the rare fate with the royal family.

In 2020, Mr. Tan both works and enjoys collecting antiques. Every weekend, Mr. Qin walks around the antique market. If there is an auction, he will certainly participate fully.

Although Mr. Qin is not rich to auction, he still wants to participate and learn about antiquities with the desire to broaden his knowledge and horizons. Gradually, Mr. Qin accumulated a wide knowledge of antiques. He read a lot of books about ancient documents and had a certain understanding of history.

Once, Mr. Qin participated in a very ordinary auction. Because the items at this auction were not attractive and of little value, the attendees were only amateur collectors.

During the auction, the staff introduced an old kashāya shirt, the starting price was 80,000 yuan (more than 280 million VND). But it is worth mentioning that no one bid to buy, so the kashāya was withdrawn. Only Mr. Tan felt very interested in this kashāya and thought that it was not so simple.

After the auction ended, Mr. Qin began to collect money, including his own 40,000 yuan (more than 140 million VND) and borrowed another 50,000 yuan (more than 176 million VND) from friends. The next morning, Mr. Qin went to the auction company.

It is a good thing for an auction company to have people come to buy the product, but the price for this kashāya is not the same as the starting price of 80,000 yuan (more than 280 million VND). After that, through negotiation from both sides, Mr. Qin spent all the money in the card of 90,000 yuan (more than 317 million VND) to own the old shirt.

Mr. Qin brought home his kashāya, his wife was furious and scolded him for doing something useless for spending all his money on rags. In contrast, Mr. Qin did not feel the same way and always believed that this shirt is not simply priced at 90,000 yuan (more than 317 million VND). However, that is just intuition.

During the research process, Mr. Tan discovered hidden inside the old kashāya layer was a golden cloth covered with scriptures. Because in order to clarify the origin of this golden cloth, Mr. Qin went to Master Hoang Dao of the Chinese Buddhist Association for assistance. Unexpectedly, the assessment results of Grandmaster Hoang Dao completely surprised Mr.

It turned out that this was not an ordinary cloth, it was the shroud that covered the body of the Qianlong Emperor. The text embroidered above is the “Dala Ni Sutra” or the Great Compassion Mantra.

When Empress Dowager Cixi died, she was also buried with this type of shroud embroidered with the Da La Ni Sutra. Even more surprising, Emperor Qian Long’s shroud was embroidered with a more complete version of the Da La Ni Sutra than Tu Hi’s shroud.

Just three years later, Mr. Qin auctioned off this embroidered Kinh Da La Ni shroud for a whopping 72 million yuan (more than VND 254 billion), far exceeding the amount he had bought for the original old cloth. Three years later, the Shroud with the embroidered Sutras of the Da La Ni was once again put up for auction. In the end, the shroud was sold for 130 million yuan (more than 458 billion VND).

So why is this valuable scarf so “lost in the world”?

It is known that this shroud was made by Tibetan Buddhists specifically for Emperor Qianlong. The shroud is called “Dala Ni Sutra Embroidered Blanket”, embroidered from precious silk material worth thousands of gold. In addition, the shroud is embroidered with scriptures and unique motifs. Accordingly, it takes a person three years to complete a complete scarf.

After Cixi and Qianlong died, they were both buried in Thanh Dong mausoleum along with countless precious jewels and ivory. But in the end, they were robbed by the infamous grave thief Ton Dien Anh.

But unfortunately, Ton Dien Anh has eyes like blind, only interested in things like emeralds, not paying attention to the shroud on Emperor Qianlong.

The grave robbers think that this is a “beautiful” doormat, not worth it. Moreover, for thieves, the shroud of the dead is an unlucky object, bringing bad luck.

After that, the shroud was lost until it suddenly appeared at a recent mediocre auction. The discovery of the Qianlong Emperor’s embroidered shroud is of great value in the archaeological world.
