Old mummy in Mongolia Found Meditating in Lotus Position
The mummified body sits in a lotus position, as if still meditating. Specialists that just had time to take fundamental visual test say they consider the body can be about 200 years old. The report also said that there is so far no evidence where the body was located. It was covered with a skin that it is still to be determined whether it was the skin of a camel, cor or a horse. The mummy was delivered to Ulaanbataar National Centre of Forensic Expertise.
First guess is that the mummy could be a teacher of renowned Lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov.
Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov, who lived around the 1850’s, was a Buryat Buddhist Lama of the Tibetian Buddhist tradition and could be the proper identification of the old mummy that was found in Mongolia.
