Thailand

Wax image of the venerated monk Man Phoorithattoh, who is usually referred to as Phra Ajaan Man. He was born in Ubon Ratchathani on 20 January 1870 AD and passed away on 11 November 1949 in Sakon Nakhon. He preferred a solitary life in the forest and is credited with establishing the Thai Forest Tradition, in which practitioners dwell in so-called forest temples called wat pah.
