    Nepal Buddha Boy 'sighted again'

    A missing Nepalese teenager popularly known as Buddha Boy has reappeared after nine months, eyewitnesses say.
    Thousands of people are thronging a jungle in southern Nepal to catch a glimpse of Ram Bahadur Bomjan, 17.
    The boy's meditation and apparent 10-month fast attracted global attention before he vanished in March.
    Bomjan's followers say he is an incarnation of Lord Buddha who was born in Lumbini, in present-day Nepal, more than 2,500 years ago.
    Eyewitnesses said that a large number of people had reached the jungle in Bara district to get a glimpse of him.
    The boy attracted international attention earlier this year when he was reported to have meditated for months without food.
    But there has been no information about his whereabouts over the last nine months.
    Eyewitnesses said that he had become thinner. The boy told the local reporters that he lived on herbs, but did not take other food.
    He also carried a sword. Newspapers quoted him as saying that he kept the weapon for self-defence: "Even Buddha was forced to arrange for his security himself," he was quoted as saying.
    His followers say he has been meditating without food or water and is immune to fire and snake bites.
    These claims have not been independently verified. Scientists were unable to examine the boy as his followers said it would disturb his meditation.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
