Fasting Buddha

Fasting Buddha @ Wat U-Mong temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand

The young prince Siddharatha left his palace in search of enlightenment and practised for six years such severe austerities and intense mental concentration that his beautiful body withered away to skin and bones. Ultimately he attained enlightenment at the age of thirty five and became known as the Buddha "The enlightened one".
