Casting a Life Size Statue of a Buddhist Monk in 1 Ton of Pure Gold

This is the video invitation for the casting of a statue of one the meditation masters of the Dhammakaya Foundation, the Venerable Sodh Cansaro the former abbot of Wat Paknam in 1 Ton of pure gold (about $60 million US at today's prices !).

Dhammkaya never do anything by halves and are dedicated to building ever bigger temples and eye-popping ceremonies which amaze and astound both friends and foes alike. Hence they are a potent source of staggering material for the Buddha's Face blog.

It is better to do nothing
Than to do what is wrong.
For whatever you do, you do to yourself.
