Hey guys, really good to have you here. If you have a moment, I'd like to show you something very cool. A temple in Thailand in the city of Bangkok called Wat Pho… or sometimes referred to as the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.
As you enter Wat Pho, you immediately notice some beautifully decorated triangular shaped structures, these are referred to as a Chedi in Thailand and are constructed to be a shrine for holy relics. At Wat Pho, these currently hold the ashes of Thailand's earliest kings and family and some of the relics of Buddha himself.
What I think that impressed me the most about our time spent at Wat Pho…. and even temples throughout Thailand was the beautifully decorated nature that these temples had. When you walk into a temple in Thailand, you are impressed upon immediately by the majesty and the creativeness of the colors and the stonework. It comes across as a place that is very special to the people who created it and it feels as if they wanted to share with us that same sense of specialness. You really can't help but not notice that when you're there.
Wat Pho is known throughout the world for its history but also for a very famous statue a statue called the Reclining Buddha. The statue is a representation of Buddha just before his death. It was created by his followers and represents his peacefulness as he goes into Paranirvana. This statue has been recreated a number of times throughout Asia and is a wonderful representation and remembrance of mindfulness and peacefulness.
