A monk in Thailand chopped off his own head using a guillotine as an offering to Buddha.
The monk who is identified as Thammakorn Wangpreecha commited suicide in the hope he would be reincarnated as a ‘higher spiritual being’.
According to reports, the 68-year-old had reportedly been planning the bizarre ritual sacrifice for more than five years.
The monk believed that making the offering to the deity would bring him good luck in the afterlife – a belief known in Buddhism as ‘making merit’.
The monk was found dead on April 15 at the Wat Phu Hin temple in Nong Bua Lamphu province, in north-eastern Thailand.
His nephew Booncherd Boonrod discovered the body and said that a slab of marble had also been inscribed with his uncle’s plans.
“In the letter it was stated that chopping his head off was his way of praising Buddha. In the letter he said that he had been planning this for five years now.
His wish was to offer his head and his soul so that the Lord could help him reincarnate as a higher spiritual being in the next life.”
The monk allegedly used a makeshift guillotine next to a Buddhist God statue so that the religious figure would appear to be holding his head after it had been cut off.
