Mystery "Buddha" boy goes missing
Yahoo ^ | March 11, 2006

Posted on 03/11/2006 3:14:19 PM PST by INDIAN_REPUBLICAN

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepali police began hunting on Saturday for a teenaged boy who some people believe is an reincarnation of Buddha after he disappeared from the site where he had been meditating for almost 10 months.

Fifteen-year-old Ram Bahadur Bamjon has not been seen since early Saturday, said Hari Krishna Khatiwada, a district official of Bara, 150 km (95 miles) southeast of Kathmandu.

The boy had been meditating there without food or water since May. Some of his followers are also missing.

"So far we have found no trace of them," Khatiwada said.

Sitting cross-legged beneath a "pipal" tree, which is sacred to Hindus, Bomjon drew more than 100,000 people to the dense forests in southeastern Nepal.

But visitors were only allowed to see him from 50 metres (165 feet) away and the boy was hidden from public view at night behind a curtain drawn by his followers.

There is no doubt that the Chinese Communists killed him - just as they tried to do with the Dalai Lama many times before he fled from Tibet to India.

Those people fear religion and spirituality.

Fifteen year old boys gots lots of hormones....It's my bet that all that meditation finally got him the perfect mental image of a fifteen year old girl, and he's off shakin' the trees someplace.

I saw something on TV about an American woman whose very young son was supposedly the reincarnation of Buddha (I believe), and she brought him to that region and left him to grow up and assume his rightful seat as the leader.

Am I correct or do you know anything about this?

Maybe they should check the nearest McDonalds or KFC, then.

It could be only a matter of time before we hear that he and his followers were pulled, naked, from the fountain at the Bellagio in Vegas.

maybe he was dead already and his body started decaying real badly, so his caretaker buried/cremated him.

it's kind of hard surviving without water since last May.

IndianRepublican,

my apologies to you.
though I am not a deeply religious man, I am troubled to see the instant sarcasm and half-witticisms heaped opon you here.

all of you making wise,
do please remember that there seems to be a missing person in this case.
please also bear in mind that the comments you are making right now about a hindic ritual would probably get you banned had you made them about catholic or other christian rites.

So you saw it too? I can't remember any of the details, except the fact that this woman felt it was her duty, no - her honor, to hand over her son. Seems like it was on some news show like 20/20 or something. And it was at least 10 years ago.

I'm wondering if this is the same boy.

I don't care what they do on Yahoo. If you want to post undeserved vitriol, go post on Yahoo instead of stinking this place up.

I'd like to say "welcome to FR" but that would be disingenuous.

Two questions here. Would there be a political or other reason for kidnapping him? Would there be a reason for his followers to hide him to forward an agenda? I hope the young man is alright although I have to say I don't believe he hasn't had food or water since May

That's disgusting. Are you this snarky about all faiths? If so, I expect to see you on the next Christian thread posting your tripe. If not, maybe you should rethink your attitude.

Thanks, sweetie. It would be interesting if this was the same boy, wouldn't it?

I remember feeling so sorry for that mom - dropping her child off and leaving him there "to fulfill his duty."

Commenting on the fact that the kid might have died and that not feeding the kid since May is actually child negligence, is not "vitrol." What else do you want the comments to say? For all we know, this could be an elaborate hoax.
