Thanks for the video, it was quite interesting.

I keep coming back here, but I'm disappointed by the lack of updates since the video -- not just on this blog. This story seems to have completely dried up. I can't understand why, as no matter what one's perspective on this is, it's fascinating. Is it real? If it's not, how long until they get found out? How is it affecting the local community either which way? Who profits? How far off is the truth from any one of the mainstream viewpoints?

I'm sincerely interested in the process of how this story unfolds, almost more than the story itself. If y'all are still in the area, could you post some additional info? Updates? New pictures? Have the pilgrimages increased or decreased? What is the "word on the street"? Isn't anybody going to pick up the trash? What happened to the idea of "scientific" investigators arriving on the scene any minute now?

I'm most interested in knowing about the gold. What little I know about this region is that it is one of the poorest on Earth, that subsistence is a way of life. Ram's brother however sports a gold necklace and a wristwatch in your video, and even a spiffy looking haircut. Is this common in this region? How has this boy's family's life changed? "Follow the money" might answer more questions on authenticity than medical examiners who focus exclusively on a boy to whom they cannot approach closer than 15 feet!

It's a little frustrating. I wish I could investigate firsthand. I am able to rely on the Web for most things, but I'm suprised how quickly this story has dropped off the event horizon. What's going on?

Thank you very much for this wonderful video that has translated interviews with the family members.

I have been following this story closely since Mid-December for some very personal reasons.

While by nature I am a skeptic, this story intrigues me.

I spent a couple of weeks in Nepal during March/April 2004. Perhaps I will return again someday soon.

hi, thank you for this blog.
I saw the interview and heard someone telling that a light and fire was on "little buddha" and someone told me there is a video of this fire.
Do you have it or know how it is on the web?
thanks

It is a great idea to share your information about this with the rest of the world. The truth will come up with time, at this moment all the conditioning won't allow people to see what's behind the story. The intention of the blog is pure, I'm glad I got in touch with this. Luisito

Paramahansa Yogananda mentions other people with similar practices in his book "Autobiography of a Yogi."
