buddha boy

So. The Buddha Boy is back.

An interesting little piece has been making the Buddhist-news rounds this week about a teenager named Ram Bahadur Bamjan in southern Nepal who has apparently been sitting around in mediation, not eating or drinking water or even sleeping, for years on end. I guess he said he was going to be in mediation for a lot longer, but decided to come out of the jungle this week to address his followers.

They say he’s the reincarnation of the Buddha.
