THE HUFFINGTON POST
By Steven Hopkins
Monks stand by monk Fuhou's body which was placed in a vat in 2012, then opened January 10, more than three years after his death at Puzhao temple on Zimao Mountain in Quanzhou, Fujian Province of China
A Chinese monk is to be made into a golden Buddha after remaining in the lotus position three and a half years after he was placed into a cylinder, following his death age 94. He had practiced Buddhism for 81 years. After being cleaned the monk will be covered in a gold substance and made Buddha statue. In February last year high level buddhists claimed that a 200-year-old monk found mummified in Mongolia, was not in fact dead, but rather he was in a deep state of meditation. [link]
