Loung Por Daeng

The remains of this monk are displayed in Thailand at Kunaram on Koh Samui island on his request 30 years after his death. He requested his body be displayed, still in a meditation stance, and shown to the world. He wanted the world to follow the teachings of Buddhism.

He said he knew his death was imminent and spent the last seven days of his life without food, water, or company. He focused only on his meditation.

As for the neat sun-glasses you see, they were placed on him by his students after his eyes dried up and fell back in his head.
