Some monks decide to become mummy after their death, which can be also said as ‘suicide’. The monks eat only vegetables and seeds for a few years, and they reduce the amount of water they drink gradually. After few years they start drinking poisonous tea and this makes them puke. It slowly kills their body and their body becomes like a mummy even if they die.
