It’s a rare discovery of Mummified monk in Mongolia hit social media like a wild fire.
It’s hard to believe how “200 Year Old Monk Reportedly in Deep Meditation and Not Dead” Media made the headlines.
Senior Buddhists say the monk, found sitting in the lotus position, is in a deep meditative trance and not dead. The scientists have not come to the conclusion why the body is well preserved.
According to Dr Barry Kerzin, a physician to Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama stated the monk was in a rare state of meditation called “tukdam”.
This mummified monk was recently discovered in Mongolia. Wrapped in traditional buddhist robes and extremely well preserved, the condition of this mummy is baffling researchers. Buddhists leaders say the monk is sitting in the lotus position and is in a deep meditative trance – not dead.
The doctor to Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, told the Siberian Times that the monk was in a rare state of meditation called “tukdam”.
“If the meditator can continue to stay in this meditative state, he can become a Buddha,” Dr. Barry Kerzin, reports. “Reaching such a high spiritual level the meditator will also help others, and all the people around will feel a deep sense of joy.”
The meditator was discovered in a cave when a man tried to steal him to sell on the black market. The thief was arrested and the meditator is now being guarded at the National Centre of Forensic Expertise.
