I can tell you one thing: On the off chance that this guy was indeed “meditating”, he’s surely deader than hell after being kept in a freezer.
Or is he?
“That is not dead which can eternal lie. And with strange aeons even death may die.”
I guess that can apply as easily to million dollar gurus as it can alien gods.
The family and followers of one of India’s wealthiest Hindu spiritual leaders are fighting a legal battle over whether he is dead or simply in a deep state of meditation.
His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj, the founder of the Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan religious order with a property estate worth an estimated £100 million, died in January, according to his wife and son.
However, his disciples at his Ashram have refused to let the family take his body for cremation because they claim he is still alive.
According to his followers, based in the Punjab city of Jalandhar, he simply went into a deep Samadhi or meditation and they have frozen his body to preserve it for when he wakes from it.
His body is currently contained in a commercial freezer at their Ashram.
