days of the week buddhas

In the countries where Theravada Buddhism is practiced, each day of the week
is linked to a specific posture of the Buddha. It is important to understand that
those are alway the same Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha), but pictured in various postures
related to different important episodes of his life.
Following old time tradition, people pray for the Buddha of their day of birth
(you can calculate your day of birth here).

Note : There are actually 8 different Buddha postures, because wednesday
has two different Buddhas, one if you are born before mid-day and one after !
