Bees build magical goatee for Buddha

Thousands of bees worked hard to build a hive on the chin of a big Buddha at Wat Pa Na Dong in Bueng Kan province, creating a new Buddha gesture – the goatee.

Awesome photos of bearded Buddha spread across Facebook after they were posted yesterday by Novice Petch (from another temple). The photos received over 116,000 likes with many Buddhist netizens commenting “sa thu,” the rough equivalent of “Amen.”
