The night of his re-cremation and funeral was the 19th June the monk was cremated properly so he could be buried, but something was left. By the end of the cremation his heart remained intact, refusing to burn. It was seen as a sign of his great compassion. To this day that heart is a holy relic, the heart of Thich Quang Duc in a Glass Chalice.
