Discovery of a 200-year-old mummified Buddhist monk in 'Padmasan' has spurred world-wide attention on Ulan Bator, the capital of Mangolia.
The mummified monk was found in Songino Khairkhan district of Ulan Bator. The mummified monk was discovered inside a cave by a 45-year-old person.
His hands folded and legs crossed in Padmasana, the monk appeared to be in deep trans.
One of his hand is opened while the right one is in a position of preaching.
Some Buddhists said he is in a heightened meditative trance called 'tukdam', which is close to Nirvana. Some Buddhism experts have even claimed that the Lama is still alive and can be brought back to life.
Some have claimed that this could be the mummy of the teacher of the famous Lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov.
The mummy has since been sent to the National Centre of Forensic Expertise in Ulan Bator for further study.
