Greatly admired and famous, yet very humble.
"Again, Bhikkhus, as though he were to see a corpse thrown aside in a charnel ground, one, two, three days dead, bloated, livid, and oozing matter, a bhikkhu compares this same body with it thus, "This body too is of the same nature, it will be like that, it is not exempt from that fate"
In this way he abides contemplating the body as a body internally, and externally, and both internally and externally...And he abides independent, not clinging to anything in the world. That too is how a bhikkhu abides contemplating the body as a body"
-- Satipatthana Sutta (MN10)
