Jaigon is a small town in India on the border of Bhutan. It also had a factory of human skeletons! Hundreds of human skulls were found there.. which probably came straight from Benaras – the city where Hindu dead are cremated. And where were these skulls and thigh bones going? To Bhutan in Buddhist Monasteries! What is wrong with Buddhism? They seem to have created strange and amazing practices:
"During interrogation they confessed that the hollow human thigh bones were in great demand in monasteries and were used as blow-horns, and the skulls as vessels to drink from at religious ceremonies," investigating officer Ravinder Nalwa said on Tuesday.
These monks belong to the Tibetan school – I am thinking the same school as the pacificist Dalai Lama?
Buddhist monks in India said human thigh bones and skulls were used by followers of a Tibetan school of Buddhism.
"But one or two bones would last a lifetime, so a racket this huge might have links to other countries," said Bhikkhu Bodhipala, chief priest of the Mahabodhi temple in Bodh Gaya.
The bones "last a lifetime"?! Wow.. thats a great product to "own" – a lifetime guarantee.. for "beyond life" returns!!
