The living dead Buddhist monk- Hambo Lama Itigelov

There is a monk who died several years ago but is still known to be alive by the several monks. Hambo Lama Itigelov, a Buddhist monk, died at the age of 75 years. In 1926, since the red teaching was coming, he advised his other monks to leave Russia, though Itigelov never left. After a year, when he was of 75 years, he told his other monks that he is ready to die and he began all his meditation ceremonies, but the monks refused to do all ceremonies as he was still alive. So Itigelov started meditating on his own, later other monks also joined him. Itigelov died while meditating. It was his wish that he'd be buried in the same position as he died. It was done according to his said lines. In 1955 and 1977 when his body was taken out the monks were surprised to see no signs of physical decay on the body. The body looked like it died only 36 hours ago. Whole muscles and inner tissue intact and with soft joints and skin all in place. The monks were too afraid to reveal this astonishing finding.
