The boy with divine powers

A boy in Nepal, Ram Bahadur Bomjon, has been called the reincarnation of the Buddha by those who witnessed his amazing meditation without food and water for months. He began his meditation on May 16, 2005 and went missing on March 11, 2006. No one knows where the boy is now. From Wikipedia:
In December 2005, a nine-member government committee led by Gunjaman Lama watched Bomjon carefully for 48 hours and observed him not to take any food or water during that time. A video recording was also made of this test. However, they were unable to approach closer than 3 meters or take readings of his vital signs. A group of rationalist physicians tried to conduct an independent study but were prevented from doing so by the screen erected at night.The Nepalese government planned a more careful scientific study but this plan was later scrapped.

Bomjon, after about ten months of meditation, went missing on March 11, 2006. It is unclear whether or not he voluntarily left for the local jungles or was abducted. Some believe he ventured farther into the jungle to seek a more serene place for intensive meditation. There is an ongoing investigation. Police abandoned the search after the possibility of foul play was eliminated.
Discovery Channel (Singapore) will be airing a special on Bomjon called "The Boy With Divine Powers" tomorrow at 9pm.

He will return in six years, or roughly 2011 or 2012. ;o)

Buddha reincarnates and meditates? Not saving the world by stopping wars in the middle east or rebuilding tsunami washed houses? strange...

The Discovery Channel team filmed the boy for 4 days straight and he did not move, eat or drink.

Sir Thomas said...

The boy did reappear and spoke briefly saying that he left the place because there was no peace for him there.

The BBC has a video of this.
