Following from a talk at training today:
I went to Jiuhuashan in Anhui provence about 2x years ago.
Seeing the Buddhist monks that had become mummys was amazing.

The mummys are different from Egyptian mummys as all the internal organs are still in the body.
These very high level monks can feel that they will die in around 3 to 4 months time.
They then eat a special diet the clean the internal body.

When dead other monks put in a large container for around 1 year.
Once opened the masters body is a mummy.

You can see the mummys in the various little temples around the mountain.
