Reincarnation hailed in nepal

Buddha with wheel of life

15 Year old Ram Bahadur Banjan is being hailed in Katmandu, Nepal as possibly a reincarnation of BUDDHA. His sacred place of meditation located in dense jungles has been visited by hundreds of thousands of devotees.

According to recent news reports:



The fervour increased last week when a snake is said to have bitten Ram, and a curtain was drawn around him. After five days it was opened and the boy said: "Tell the people not to call me a Buddha. I don't have the Buddha's energy. I am at the level of rinpoche (lesser divinity). A snake bit me but I do not need treatment. I need six years of deep meditation."

The popularity of the boy is partly because the scene resembled an episode in the life of Buddha, who was born 160 miles away around 543 BC. The Buddha achieved enlightenment when he meditated beneath a sacred pipal tree for 49 days, and the boy is also sitting beneath a pipal tree, in the same posture as the Buddha is depicted.

Ram's mother Maya Devi said: "He's definitely got thinner. Early in the morning he looks sunken, like there's no blood in him, but as the sun rises he seems to get brighter and brighter."

May the ancients be pleased
We pour libations for this oracle...

The day I found out about Ram, circumstances allowed me to dance as I hadn't danced in 15 years. Yes, a God-incidence. I love this story!
