    Did anyone catch ‘My Shocking Story: The Boy With Divine Powers‘ on the Discovery Channel tonight?

    The documentary was about a 15 year old called Ram Bahadur Bamjan, who has been meditating under a banyan tree in Central Nepal for about 8 months, before disappearing. All this time he never ate, drank or moved.

    Some people believe him to be Buddha reincarnate.

    Very interesting documentary, if you did not see the program, try and track it down.

    The filmmakers filmed the lad continually for 5-6 days/nights.
    They never witnessed him take food or water, a person will die, after 4-5 days, if they do not have an intake of water.

    The documentary also featured a 70 odd year old man, whom stated that he has not eaten since his teens. Some scientists studied him, under a controlled environment for 10 days. In that time he did not take any food or liquid.

    Truly mad (if true).

    Has anyone had any experience in meditation?

    It is amazing how TV has the ability to make people believe in the impossible…What a load of f###ing nonsense!…I have to question the mental state of people that actually believe this crap!!!!!!…And what kind of drugs they take!!!!

    YES! For many years, it can be beneficial to some extent, but it’s basically nothing more than a pastime, even a waste of life, but does have health benefits, depending on the person, it can help to lower blood pressure etc!…Extremely experienced (20 years+) buddist monks can get there heart rate down to 1 or 2 beats a minute, they can also meditate themselves to death by starvation, and have the ability to burn themselves to death…Well documented during the korean and Vietnamese wars!!!

    I suppose it’s because I come across a lot of idiotic crap on this site, it’s difficult to get any sense out of people, a bit of controversy is good and it livings things up a bit!!!!…Anything else, just ask the professor!!!!
