Dead Mongolian Mummy 200 Years Monk Alive

In Interesting and funny on February 9, 2015 at 18:39

A Monk, whose Mummified body of over 200 Years, was found in Mongolia, was found alive.

He is reported to have been under a rare Meditation called ‘Tukdam”

Scroll down for Video.

Tukdam.

Tukdam (Wyl. thugs dam) is an honorific term for meditative practice and experience that is frequently used to refer to the period following the death of a great master, during which time they are absorbed in luminosity. As Sogyal Rinpoche describes it in The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying[1]:

A realized practitioner continues to abide by the recognition of the nature of mind at the moment of death, and awakens into the Ground Luminosity when it manifests. He or she may even remain in that state for a number of days. Some practitioners and masters die sitting upright in that state for a number of days. Some practitioners and masters die sitting upright in meditation posture, and others in the “posture of the sleeping lion.” Besides their perfect poise, there will be other signs that show they are resting in the state of the Ground Luminosity: There is still a certain color and glow in their face, the nose does not sink inward, the skin remains soft and flexible, the body does not become stiff, the eyes are said to keep a soft and compassionate glow, and there is still a warmth at the heart. Great care is taken that the master’s body is not touched, and silence is maintained until he or she has arisen from this state of meditation.
(Tukdam)

Scientists in Mongolia are examining a 200-year mummified monk who some Buddhists believe is still alive because he is in a deep meditative trance.

200 Years Old Mummy,AMonk alive?

The preserved body of the monk, sitting in the cross-legged lotus position, was discovered last week, covered in cattle skin, in the Songino Khairkhan district of the capital, Ulan Bator.

The ash-coloured mummy has reportedly been sent to the National Centre of Forensic Expertise in Ulan Bator for further study.

Gankhüügiin Pürevbat, the founder of the Mongolian Institute of Buddhist Art at Ulan Bator Buddhist University, told the Siberian Times, a news website: “The lama is sitting in the lotus position vajra, the left hand is opened, and the right hand symbolises of the preaching Sutra.

 

‘This is a sign that the lama is not dead, but is in a very deep meditation according to the ancient tradition of Buddhist lamas”

Some experts on Buddhism said the monk could be in “tukdam”, a kind of deep meditative state that crosses over between life and death.

Dr Barry Kerzin, a monk and a physician to the Dalai Lama, told the website: “If the person is able to remain in this state for more than three weeks – which rarely happens – his body gradually shrinks, and in the end all that remains from the person is his hair, nails, and clothes.”

Local media said a 45-old-man had been arrested because the monk’s body had been stolen from a cave with the intention of selling it off. It was unclear in what circumstances it was originally found.

 

The mummified monk is generally thought to have died in the 19th century. His identity is unknown.

In a similar case, the body of Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, a lama in Russia’s Buryatia region, showed few signs of decay when it was exhumed in 2002. Monks say Itigilov is “not completely dead” and the temperature of his body rises during ceremonies at the monastery where it is kept near Ulan Ude.

Itigilov died in 1927 while meditating, having asked fellow monks to bury him in the lotus position after he passed away. His body was packed in salt.

Hanuman Visited Lanka 2014 Visits Regularly

In Hinduism on January 20, 2015 at 09:52

Lord Hanuman (around 5000 BC), one of the Immortals of Hinduism, is reported to have been seen in Sri Lanka in 2014.

It is also reported that he visits Lanka regularly a sub tribe of Veddah in lankan Jungles.

Hanuman is reported to have visited Lanka, according to this tribe during Vibhishana’s Rule!

Setu, a spiritual organisation in Sri Lanka is doing research into this and has the following published in their website.

I have checked with Hoaxslayer.com for to determine whether this is a fact, but there is no information.

I have checked the web, there seems to be no contradiction.

More information as to the veracity of this is required.

“This mystery tribe is basically a sub-tribe of Veddah who are indigenous people of Sri Lanka. A spiritual organization called Setu is studying this tribe and has come up with some startling revelations. People of this tribe are highly spiritual and completely disconnected from the modern world. They live in their own world of jungle with monkeys and birds. Their history goes back to the Ramayana period. According to Setu, Lord Hanuman roamed in various places of the planet. At that time He visited the kingdom of Vibhishana in Lanka too. He lived with ancestors of this tribe and gave them the knowledge of supreme. Study of Setu reveals that Lord Hanuman comes to meet these people every 41 years and He came to meet them recently this year. Next arrival may happen around year 2055.

While Lord Hanuman remains with this tribe, head of the tribe notes down every conversation and incident in a log book. Setu is studying this log book and translating it in modern languages. Setu has posted first chapter of the logbook on their website www.setu.asia which reveals how Lord Hanuman arrived in the jungle few days ago. In first chapter it is mentioned that Lord Hanuman was sitting on the top of a hill of Nuwera Eliya when the head of the tribe went there one evening. In the next chapters it will be described what all Lord Hanuman did with the forest dwellers and what conversations took place between them.

Clearly we human beings of digital age may be very advanced in many things but when it comes to the spiritual advancement, these forest dwellers are way ahead than us. While we may see everything with the prism of our self-defined rationality, there are divine things which exist well beyond our small world of “job, home and vacations”.

From Setu site :
Lord Hanuman visited them recently in 2014.
-> Recently this year in 2014, Lord Hanuman visited them. His next visit will happen after 41 years i.e. in 2055. This year, we were in the know of His arrival. We wanted to see Him with our physical eyes. We expressed our desire to head of the tribe. But we could not pass test of the purity required to see Lord Hanuman. We were told that we are not pure souls hence our eyes cannot see Him. At the time of Lord Hanuman’s visit, Mathangs form a sphere of purity around themselves which is called “HanuMandal”. No impure soul can enter into the sphere. They remain within that sphere and interact with Shri Hanuman.

Human beings were purest in Satyuga. After that erosion of Sanskaras started and now in Kaliyuga we are not even pure enough to see the immortal Lord Hanuman. Last time in recorded history, there is a mention of Lord Hanuman meeting Bheema during Mahabharata period. But Mathangs are pure till date. Even if little impurity surfaces in their new generation, Lord Hanuman comes every 41 years to purify them completely with His Brahma Jyan.

—> What all Lord Hanuman did when He came this time?
Even the birds and monkeys who live with Mathangs are purer souls than us human beings of mainstream society. Mathangs can talk to the birds and monkeys in their language. When Lord Hanuman comes to them every 41 years, all birds, monkeys and Mathangs worship Him in their own way and interact with Him. They talk to Him the way we talk to each other. The entire rituals and processions which are carried out by Mathangs in presence of Lord Hanuman are recorded by the head of the tribe in a “Log Book”.

27th May 2014 was last day of Lord Hanuman’s visit to Mathangs. After that we have been interacting with the head Mathang to figure out what conversations took place between them (Monkeys, Birds and Mathangs) and Him (Lord Hanuman). We have been trying to translate their log book in our language. Finally we are able to decipher it and we are now posting the entire log book chapter by chapter in Hindi and English here.

If you are a devotee of Lord Hanuman, He knows you. Hence do not get surprised if in any chapter you find a conversation where some incident of your life is mentioned.

Note. Mathangs and their companion animals have their own understanding of the world. For example, we human beings of mainstream society identify each other with face and names. Similarly they have their own mechanism to identify each other. For the sake of simplicity, we have given them our own names and terms in these translations. So, we have not only translated their words but also their understanding of the words..
Setu Asia #AIUFO is the only spiritual organization in the world which is fully commited to connecting the mortal beings with the immortal Lord Hanuman. We are based in Colombo because Mathangs of Sri Lanka can lead us to the way which goes to Lord Hanuman. The Day Lord Hanuman appears before scientists of the world, that day science will acquire new dimensions. That day Setu’s dream will be fulfilled. “Setu” is derived from Sanskrit which means “bridge”. We are building the bridge of communication between human beings and Lord Hanuman.

Veddas (Sinhala: වැද්දා [ˈvædːaː], Tamil: வேடுவர் Vēṭuvar) are an indigenous people of Sri Lanka. They, amongst other self-identified native communities such as Coast Veddas and Anuradhapura Veddas, are accorded indigenous status.

According to the genesis chronicle of the Sinhala people, the Mahavamsa (“Great Chronicle“), written in the 5th century CE, thePulindas believed to refer to Veddas are descended from Prince Vijaya (6th–5th century BCE), the founding father of the Sinhalese nation, through Kuveni, a woman of the indigenous Yakkha he married. The Mahavansa relates that following the repudiation of Kuveni by Vijaya, in favour of a Kshatriya-caste princess from Pandya, their two children, a boy and a girl, departed to the region ofSumanakuta (Adam’s Peak in the Ratnapura District), where they multiplied, giving rise to the Veddas. Anthropologists such as the Seligmanns (The Veddhas 1911) believed the Veddas to be identical with the Yakkha.(wiki)

Name Rama Gave Rama Sethu

In Hinduism on January 12, 2015 at 21:00

The Rama Sethu , Adams Bridge in India was called  by the Lankans as ‘Aadhaam Bridge’ because their first Islamic leader traveled over this bridge by foot from India and thus this bridge has a holy connotation for them.

But westerners saw the affinity of the Name to Adam and renamed it as Adams Bridge.

But the name given by Rama to this Bridge is Nala Bridge.

Nala was a vanara of Sugreeva’s army and he was the one who designed it.

(I recall Kaunanidhi asking whether Rama was an Engineer, where he took His degree and was He an Engineer?

Yellow Shawl !

This is the answer.)

“The Ramayana narrates that Sita – the wife of Rama, prince of Ayodhya and avatar of the god Vishnu- was kidnapped by Ravana, the rakshasa (demon) king of Lanka. Rama aided by an army of vanaras (monkeys) reached the end of land and wanted to cross over to Lanka. Rama worships the god of the ocean, Varuna and requests him to make way. When Varuna does not appear before Rama, Rama starts shooting various weapons at the sea, which starts drying up. A terrified Varuna pleads to Rama. Though he refuses to give way, he gives Rama a solution. He tells Rama that Nala, the son of Vishwakarma – the architect of the gods, is amongst his vanara army; Nala has the necessary expertise of an architect, owing to a boon from his divine father. Varuna suggests that Rama construct a bridge across the ocean to Lanka, under the supervision of Nala. Nala volunteers for the task and also comments that the arrogance of the Ocean (Varuna) was tamed by Rama with a threat when love had failed. The vanaras fell mighty trees, and collect logs of wood and giant boulders and cast them in the sea. With the help of the vanara army, Nala completes the 80 miles (130 km) (tenyojana) bridge in just five days. Rama and his army pass over it and reach Lanka, where they prepare to fight Ravana..

Commentaries on the Ramayana elaborate the event. Nala is said to have been born when Vishwakarma embraced Nala’s vanara mother and has an ejaculation. While some commentaries say that other monkeys merely collect the building material, Nala is the one who constructs the bridge; others says that the monkeys build the bridge under his directions.The Kamba Ramayana also solely credits Nala as the architect and builder of the bridge, the Ramacharitamanasa credits Nala and his brother Nila for the creation.

In some versions, Nala is said to have the power to make stones float and, thus, easily makes the sea-bridge.[3] In other versions, another vanara called Nila is also said to have this power and both Nala and Nila are described as builders of the bridge. The tale justifying this power states that in their youth, these monkeys were very mischievous and used to throw the murtis (holy images) worshipped by the sages in the water. As a remedy, the sages decreed that any stone thrown by them in water will not drown, thus saving the murtis. Another tale narrates as assured by Varuna, the stones dropped by Nala and Nila float, but they drift in the sea and do not form a continuous structure, Hanuman, Rama’s devotee and monkey lieutenant suggests that the name of Rama be written, so they stick together; the remedy worked.

Qamar Ali Darvesh Dargarh Stone goes up.

How to reach.

Railway Station/Bus station. Pune,

Shivpur is 23 Km from Pune, 150 kM from Mumbai.

Airport.Mumbai.

The story goes that Qamar Ali was born into a family of middle-class Moslems whose men-folk prided themselves on their muscular prowess. Qamar Ali, unlike his aggressive older brothers, was introspective and gentle. When he was scarcely six, he became a disciple of a Sufi Pir (great teacher) who lived nearby, and spent his days in meditation and fasting. Before long, throngs of devotees began to flock to his doorstep drawn by the young Sufi mystic’s compassion and miraculous powers of healing.

Qamar Ali died in his late teens but as he lay on his deathbed, he requested that a circular stone weighing 200 pounds, be placed near his tomb. According to the legend, he said: “If eleven men place their right index fingers under the stone and then jointly call my name, I will cause it to rise higher than their heads. Otherwise, neither singly nor together will they be able to move it more than two feet off the ground. Let it be a symbol,” he said to his brothers, “a reminder of my message that spiritual power is greater than brute strength. As Allah the Merciful, has loved you, so should you love all men of every caste and creed. For we are all brothers on the same journey. Think of this when you call my name and raise the stone.”

UFO Landing Site Samaipata

In Astrophysics, Interesting and funny on January 8, 2015 at 18:10

The authorities all over the world are in constant Denial Mode when confronted with anything connected with UFO.

There is enough evidence to at least institute a Study on the UFOs.

Please check under astrophysics, interesting and Funny, Videos for more information on UFO, Aliens.

There are cave paintings all over the world depicting Astronauts like figures with hoods,figures resembling Flying Saucers.

One such is found in Chattisgarh and nother in Mahabalipuram, Tamil Nadu.

Ravanas’ Puspaka Vimana Ale has been found in Lanka(Read my post)

Please read my post on this.

There are also some places where patterns are observed.

The Nazca Lines of Peru and Crop Circles.

There is Samaipata, Bolivia, where at 6500 feet above sea level, is rock marked with aligned lines, possibly a landing site for UFOs.

This is what Erich Von Daniken proposed in the 60’s.

I am curious about the name.

Samai is time/right time in Sanskrit, Hindi, Samaya in Kannada Samayam in Tamil.

Peta is the corrupt form Betta , Mountain peak.

Any connection with Santana Dharma?

Sugreeva had his army look for Sita in Peru and the Nazca Lines resemble Shiva’s Trisula.(read my post)

 

El Fuerte de Samaipata: (‘Fort’ Samaipata).

 

Archaeology of the site has revealed that several phases of occupation were present at Samaipata. Before the Spanish were the Inca, and beneath the foundations of the Inca works evidence of previous cultural works was found, proving that the site was in use a long time before the might Inca. (5) So who were the people that originally carved the hill..? The site is now generally considered to be a pre-Incan site, built by the Chané people, a pre-Inca culture of Arawak origin, (3) who migrated from Guyana approximately 2,500 years ago. (6) It is suggested that the first engravings at El Fuerte were undertaken during the Mojocoyas period (AD 200 – 800) (7). Unfortunately, the exact chronology of the site is yet to be determined for the period between the Chané and the Inca, but the evidence suggests that there is more than one building phase at Samaipata.

The site was later occupied by the Inca who used it as their most advanced post of the Empire, of which it marked the frontier from the late 15th century until its fall in 1530. It was the administrative centre in charge of maintaining the order of the Inca in the region, but its principal function was keeping at bay the frequent invasion attempts of the Guarani Indians. (1) They gave it the name of “Samaipata”, which is Quechua (language of the Inca’s) and stands for ‘The Height to Rest’ or ‘Rest in the heights’, and they added several classic Inca-style masonry constructions to the complex. Around 1540 the Spanish arrived and encountered an Inca fortress. They renamed the site “El Fuerte” or “The Fortress”, and deserted the site around 1629 when they founded the settlement known today as Samaipata a few Km away

Starting at the western end, the rock has been carved to reveal the outline of three felines (jaguars). The second is out of shot (right, foreground), and is greatly eroded. The third is placed further ahead within what appears to be the zig-zag motif common in Inca and Tiahuanacan art.

The two parallel lines are oriented to the eastern sky at a position of azimuth 71° and an altitude of about 6.75° .

 

‘The orientation of the carved trail is the direction of the rise of the Pleiades at about 1AD. An observer at the top of the hill could see the rising of the Pleiades at around 500AD, and also the rising of Regulus in 600AD. The alignment of the 8 pits points to the rise of the Pleiades at 500BC and of Aldebaran at 500AD. The long rectilinear engraving near the seats complex to the East matches the rise of the Pleiades at about 500BC.

If we consider that the Pleiades cluster (‘Collca’ in the quechua or ‘Qutu’ in the aymara languages) was important in the Andean world as a celestial signal for sowing (mainly maise) or for the prediction of yields, then it is possible to think that the alignments found at Samaipata were devised for the observation of this star cluster. Accordingly, the monument should have been built between 1AD and 500 or 600AD. Perhaps the eight pits were used first and the ‘cascabel’ later on, as a more recent construction. Of course only the archaeological research may work out a precise dating for the monument. (2)
