Meditating to Death

“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.”

Nice to know Christianity isn’t the only religion that has followers where one wonders if they are dead or alive.

I’ve been to a few churches where I wondered if the leader was dead.

Trust me, if your religious works make you appear to be dead, you’re doing something wrong.
