 Scientists to check Nepal Buddha boy

[img]https://www.sermonindex.net/images/forum/2004/may/featured_news.gif[/img]

A meditating teenage boy in south-central Nepal is drawing the attention of scientists after attracting huge crowds in the past six months and earning himself the name Buddha-reincarnate.
They are mulling over how to examine him without disturbing his meditation.

Ram Bahadur Bamjan's friends, relatives and managers say he has been meditating without drinking water for six months now and that he will carry on for another six years until he gains enlightenment - as did the Buddha some 250km (160 miles) away in Lumbini in western Nepal.

Word spread quickly about the teenager and people around Ratanapuri village in Bara district began to visit Bamjan, 15, who has been sitting cross-legged in a traditional Buddha posture under a peepal tree.

Bamjan's eyes are closed and his body firm, encased in a whitish shawl. His hair has grown long and has almost covered his eyes. Villagers say he has grown weak.

Many around Bara worship him as the reincarnation of the Buddha.

 Re: Scientists to check Nepal Buddha boy

"The most frequently asked questions: Does he remain seated like that and meditate even at night? Does he not eat or drink at all?

Some say he has eaten nothing since he began his meditation, others that he used to take a milk-like liquid from the roots of the peepal tree at the beginning."

"Bamjan has spoken only a few times since he began the meditation, according to Prem Lama.

He said the first time Bamjan spoke was when a snake bit him around a month ago.

Bamjan took the incident as his second test, which he must overcome, Prem Lama said.

In the first test he was also bitten by a snake - three months after he began the meditation.

The second snake-bite episode led to increased curiosity.

After being bitten, Bamjan was said to have asked his aides to put a curtain around him.

"In less than a week he asked us to take the curtain away," Prem Lama said.

Now another curtain is to be drawn around Bamjan - for the scientific examination. "

 Re: In the last days MANY will be deceived

In the last days, many false prophets and teachers will rise up and deceive many. Beware the wolves in sheep's clothing. The enemy will point the lost to anyone or anything other than the Son of the Living God. There is only one way to heaven and that is the Lord Jesus Christ. Nepal is and has been a place of spiritual darkness and demonic activity for centuries.

 Re:

It is so interesting to me that a young man is more given over to seeking the powers of hell for enlightenment than most Christians are for seeking God for a release of His power in our day. Where are the Christians who can contend with such devotion? Not that I am saying what he is doing is good - certainly not. Only saying what an indictment that is against us (myself included). There must rise up a generation of prayer warriors to contend with this demonic counterfeit. The Lord will NEVER be trumped by the powers of darkness - may the Lord raise up radical intercessors who will give him no rest day or night until he brings revival! Amen and Amen!

 Re:

Just another thought...
we believers ought to take up this young man as a special object of intercession. Just what if the Lord Jesus broke into his demonic trance and revealed Himself to this boy? In countires such as Nepal, India, Malaysia etc... (predominantly Muslim and Hindu nations) one of the primary ways that people are being converted is through supernatural interventions such as visions and dreams - what a testimony it would be of the power of God over the powers of this age if this young man awoke from his trance completely shaking with the fear of the Lord, confessing that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation! Church if we pray God can do that!
Burning,
Jeff

 Re:

It seems maybe Greg is being impressed with "False figures (Christs/Messiah's, Buddah's, Muhammaded)"

This stuff happens all the time. I think it's been happening for the past 100 years.

I think the Traditional Jew's "Messaih' Died like 2-6 years ago. I think he was like 70-90 years old.

There was (hopefully it's still past tense) a man in Africa claiming to be Christ. He killed over 30,000 kids (3-14 yrs old)

Ugh. The church is too weak as Ravinhill would say.
