Dang Piyasilo

After Thai Buddhist monk Loung Pordaeng died at the age of 79, his relatives and disciples placed his body in an upright position within the casket as requested in his written instructions to keep it as a symbol to encourage future generations to follow Buddhist teachings. The mummified body is displayed at Wat Khunaram on Samui Island.
