What day of the week where you born? Monday, Tuesday or maybe Friday?
Today’s CV theme is the number 7. I’m not being very creative here. I’m doing the days of the week but of course in relation to my corner.
I found this very interesting. Now I understand why there are so many different statues and poses and that each one has a meaning to it.
If you ever visit a Thai temple you might see different Buddha images lined up in a row. Each pose apparently shows what Buddha was doing on that particular day of the week.
I was born on a Friday and so the Buddha image for Friday is with the hands crossed over the chest and is in deep thought. Apparently the gesture represents a complete spiritual transformation.
If you are curious to see what pose is represented for you then click here.
I took these photos on our trip to Chiang Mai back in 2008.
