In Thailand, a Buddhist monk cut off his head with a sword and offered it to Mahatma Buddha. This monk began to feel that he would be reborn as a high-level spiritual person through rebirth. The deceased monk has been identified as 68-year-old Thammakorn Wangprecha. Local people said that this monk had been planning a bizarre ritual for renunciation for more than five years.
The entire plan was written on marble
Police said the monk’s death was reported on April 15 at Wat Phu Hin Temple in Nong Bua Lamphu
Were planning for five years
Thamkorn Wangprecha believed that offering to the deity would bring him good fortune in life. This belief is known as Making Marits in Buddhism. This Buddhist monk had been planning it for the last five years. The nephew said that he wished to offer his head and his soul so that the lord could help him reborn as a higher spiritual being in the next life.
Sacrifice right in front of Buddha statue
This monk cut off his head with a sharpened sword just in front of the Buddha statue. This sword was set in such a place that the sliced neck fell directly at the feet of the Buddha. This monk, who served in this temple for 11 years, had never told anything about this sword to his fellow priests. They used to say that I will release the nun, but will not tell anything about the sword.
Police sent dead body for postmortem
After receiving the death notice, the police took possession of the monk’s body and sent it for postmortem. The police wanted that the real cause of death could be ascertained before handing over the dead body to the family. After the monk’s death, over 300 local devotees reached the temple to perform the last rites of his body. The monk’s body was placed inside a coffin, while his head was placed in a jar in front of his followers and family members.
Government is trying to convince the residents
Thailand’s National Office of Buddhism has asked local government to convince residents in the area. The office said that religion cannot be encouraged by such work. Buddhists believe that doing good deeds is a way of praising Lord Buddha, who brings them into good deeds that make them believe that they will have a next life.
