May 27 (UPI) -- A Buddhist organization in Thailand set a Guinness World record by using 256,477 illuminated candles to create an image of the world and Buddha.

The Dhammakaya Foundation used lit candles to create a map of the world with an image of a sitting Buddha and the slogan: "Earth Day, Cleanse the Mind, Cleanse the World."
