A mummified monk found preserved in Mongolia last week has been baffling and astounding those who uncovered him.
Senior Buddhists say the monk, found sitting in the lotus position, is in a deep meditative trance and not dead.
Forensic examinations are under way on the remains, found wrapped in cattle skins in north-central Mongolia.

He's not dead, he's just pining for the fjords.

Didn't they make a movie about what happens when one of those mummies wakes up? If I remember correctly, the results were not pleasant.

Where I'm from racist white people would not qualify Mongolic peoples as brown by any definition and as long as they weren't black or Muslim we'd probably not be afraid of them.

He about as alive as my coffee table.

It just goes to show that Buddhists can cram as much shit into their brains as any follower of the Jewish Zombie or Mo the Paedophile.

Idiots.

Or don't. Just follow your arrow wherever it points.
