  1. Guru’s Body Put in Freezer Until he Emerges from ’Deep Meditation’

    Convinced he is just meditating, devoted followers of an Indian guru have frozen his dead body until he awakes. Ashutosh Maharaj, leader of the Divine Light Awakening Mission which claims to have 30 million followers, was pronounced dead by the authorities on January 29 after a suspected heart attack. His followers, however, believe that he is still alive and will return to consciousness to lead them, arguing that medical science simply cannot comprehend the depth of yogic science. They may believe in divine light, but before long his followers could face a holy stink.
