If you have ever visited a temple in Thailand you have probably seen a long line of Buddha images in different postures. In front of them are usually an alms bowl. Each one represents a different day of the week. Most Thai people know what day of the week they were born (I was born on a Wednesday) and so they pray and make merit in front of that image. The first two images in this picture are for people born on Fridays and Saturdays. What is funny is the label for the last one. It says it is for people who cannot remember which day they were born!
