Dead Indian guru frozen by devotees

Devotees of a dead guru in India have told the BBC they put his body in a freezer to preserve him as they believe he will return to life to lead them.
Ashutosh Maharaj was declared dead by authorities in Punjab on 29 January after a suspected heart attack.
But, confident that he was merely in a state of deep meditation, his followers froze his corpse.
He led the Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan (Divine Light Awakening Mission) which claims more than 30 million followers.
"He is not dead. Medical science does not understand things like yogic science. We will wait and watch. We are confident that he will come back," his spokesman Swami Vishalanand told the BBC.

Well, if he wasn't dead before he definitely is now.

Yogic science. :lol:
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Good sign you might be gullible:

"The body did not decompose before we put it in the freezer. It was a spiritual experience. We thought of embalming it, but somebody told us that his chances of revival were less if we did it," Swami Vishalanand said.


"You know what guys? I was in that Pub last night and that geezer told me we should put im in the freezer!"

"Sure"

"Yup"

"Seems solid"

It is a solid idea based on very primitive knowledge of cryonic preservation.

One would think people would stop at one guru that did not come back to life, but this seems to be a common thing among these people. The ultimate test and or proof that your are divine because you cannot die.

What is more sad is those who actually believe this. And I find it hard to also believe that the body did not stink.

Best not to embalm him yes, that would make it harder to come back. Harder than death itself I am sure....

It is always the most uneducated ignorant people that fall for this sort of thing. So why didn't he come back ? surely not because he was frozen half into death. Probably he just did not want to come back. Likely due to the bad service given. Yes that must be it ... lol

This Guru is no more, he has ceased to be!

No, it's an updating of ordeal by fire - they just didn't have the technology in the olden days for ordeal by liquid nitrogen. If he survives, he must indeed be a guru. If he doesn't, he's an imposter anyway.
That apart, 'tis indeed fuckwitted to confuse being frozen solid with a deep trance. And to confuse eventual imaginary revival thanks to the science of a future advanced civilisation with imminent reincarnation thanks to the now and present magic men or women.

At least properly vitrify and cryogenically preserve him! :D

It seems 'Yogic Science' doesn't have the power to, er, stop this geezer from dying in the first place...
It is said he was in his seventies.
So do these fuckwits expect him to 're-awaken' and live for another seventy years?

What are they going to do, defrost him every year to see if he wakes up?

Jeez! My brain hurts.
I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer evidence nor do I have to determine absence of evidence because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.

I dunno, maybe they think he'll come out like Captain America.
