The family and followers of one of India's wealthiest Hindu spiritual leaders are fighting a legal battle over whether he is dead or simply in a deep state of meditation.

He can also vote in Chicago.

Guru on ice, it's nice.

Another job for the Oregon Highway Department?

General Franco is still meditating.

Tell him "don't be such a baby and get on the cart."

hey they still have Mao/Stalin ready for a comeback. Always stick the stake thru the heart, .. alot.

"His body is currently contained in a commercial freezer at their Ashram."

Guru on Ice. Soon to be a Disney mishap theme show.

Man, are they re-enacting the dead parrot skit from Monty Python? Because it sure sound like it...

Do India-citizens seek to curry favor, or do they
simply favor curry?

Sadly for the deceased, our culture had the same problem letting John Kennedy die. Though I knew Shri Ashutosh Maharaj, and he was no John Kennedy...

Seriously guys, he's dead. Not funny.

Not quite dead yet. He got better!

Thaw him out, wait ten days for him to wake up, then ask him if he's alive or dead.
Unless he is the reincarnation of the Dread Pirate Roberts, it should be clear.

There is a long tradition of folks being in deep meditative states. If I had more motivation I would look up the article in Religion Index about leaders who have gone years in a deep state, emerging to speak again.

Then again, if I had motivation I'd have to learn to lose it to achieve the next level of consciousness.

Amateurs. Everyone knows you're supposed to avoid this problem by placing an "I'M NOT DED" sign in your lap as you get settled.
