Enroute to Godhead

Reported in the Telegraph:

Pilgrims flock to see 'Buddha boy' said to have fasted six months

Thousands of pilgrims are pouring into the dense jungle of southern Nepal to worship a 15-year-old boy who has been hailed as a new Buddha.

Devotees claim that Ram Bomjon, who is silently meditating beneath a tree, has not eaten or drunk anything since he sat down at his chosen spot six months ago.

Witnesses say they have seen light emanating from the teenager's forehead.

Redemption is here, as a 15-year old, fasting under a pipal tree. More tea, anyone?

What is he trying to achieve with his meditation? What is he trying to convey to the masses? Is he working towards any cause?

At least a Child has the right in his country to follow his instincts and in this country he would be in juvinile detention and his parents in jail.

India is a real free country...while America is Communistic and controlling....hardly free.....YOU ARE FREE TO DO AS WE TELL YOU!!!!!!

I'm not sure if the time has come for a new Buddha to rise from mankind, but if it is then this is the one that came once before, the self enlightened one.

It is said that when Buddhism has lost it's true escence that a boy will rise to become the new Buddha. But in real terms he is the last of the self enlightned Buddhas. It is he and the others that have come before him, the enlightened ones, that will show us the middle path.

A period has arrived, we must realise that it's time to transcend higher, or face the darkness of the swamp with pitty, and here those shall stay until it is time for rebirth.

Even if this boy is just simply trying to become self enlightened this still should be taken into account that we all have Buddha within us, and should follow in his ways.

We ALL can acheive enlightenment. I am witness to this. As my own own enlightenment is taking effect as each day passes. What Ram Bomjon is doing is by far the greatest sacrifice one could endure in this realm, as our existance is for a once in a cycle chance for enlightenment.

It is also the only way that the middle path can be reached, through deep meditation. We that are equal, we who are sworn by mother nature to be the Ajans of mankind, have taken it upon ourselves to re-incarnate and teach to all, untill every single living soul has reached enlightenment and Nirvana. We shall live, and live until this is acheived.
