I try not to come around here too much. Alot of deep thinkers here and that scares me

I heard something on the radio this AM that you Zen types may find interesting or maybe you already know and can tell more.

Apparently, right now, in Tibet there is a young man that they are calling the "New Buddha".

Apparently this 15 year old kid has been sitting under a tree meditating for 6 months with no food or water

Sounds like a publicity stunt at best, flat out BS at worst.

But then again what do I know. I'm a heathen! or a Pagan at best! I'm sort of outside these guys jurisdiction

No biggie. Half the girls in my daughter's class haven't eaten in 6 months. Most of them drink though.

I never hear the news...

However, about 'new buddhas': I don't know about the other branches of Buddhism, but the Tibetian schools believe that there was more than one Buddha. (Makes sense if you accept that idea of each of us having Buddha nature.) There is a prophecy of the Maitreya Buddha, and plenty of rascals out there right now claiming to be it.

A 'Buddha' is a 'realized being'...nothing special, really.

I know a guy who hasn't eaten in six months, also his heart hasn't beaten in six months...
...we still miss him

I'll leave it up to the Dalai Lama to comment on.
