Buddhist Monk 'Still Smiling' After His Death
These incredible images show a deceased Buddhist monk, apparently smiling two months after his death.
Revered monk Luang Phor Pian died aged 92 on November 16 after succumbing to illness in a hospital in Thailand’s capital of Bangkok.
Originally from Cambodia, Pian spent the majority of his life serving as a well-known spiritual and Buddhist guru in the central Thai province of Lopburi, where his body was returned to following death.
This week when his followers removed his body from his coffin, which had been kept at the temple where he served, they were shocked to find his body that his body had not decayed.

Pian’s peaceful state has been described as a sign that the monk has truly reached nirvana.
The monk’s followers will continue to pray for him until a final resting ceremony is held on the 100th day of his death.
