    Buddha statue is a mummy


    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    Nice!

    This is how I want to be preserved.
    Cover me in brass and let me be.
    Tell my lovers they deserved their inscriptions.

    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    It seems the height of hypocrisy that a so-called "humble" Buddhist monk would want to be worshiped and remembered so much that he would have his remains hidden inside a statue of the Buddha.

    However, it's possible that his followers decided on his fate instead.

    From what little I've read about Eastern mummification practices, it's usually the students following the instructions of the 'master', given before self-mummification.
