There are many different kinds of Buddha statues in Thailand. One that you see frequently is the reclining Buddha. It represents the Buddha as he reclines and gives his final talk before he left his body. The images remind us that no matter what our position, standing, sitting, walking or lying down, we can remain mindful and present to the truth of the way things are.

Kasma took this picture at Wat Phra Phuttabaht Bua Bok in Udon Thani province.
