Mahamuni Buddha
Myanmar (Burma), Mandalay, March 2012

Large parts of the Mahamuni Buddha image are covered with gold leaves by the devotees. This image is deified in the Mahamuni Buddha Temple. It is highly venerated in Burma and central to many people's lives, as it is seen as an expression of representing the Buddha's life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahamuni_Buddha_Temple

Mario, I think every religion or life philosophy (like Buddishm) has it irrational aspects!

it is amazing how much energy, money and thought is spent on religion while very little is given to people in need
