I published a short posting a few months ago on the book “Wonders of Mebegon Village” about some buddhists in Burma who are living to extraordinary ages.

However, due to the rarity of the book I don’t think readers really got the import of what I was saying.

The picture above is of Wizzardo (Siddha) Sayadaw U. Kowida who was born in the year 908 A.D. and who is still alive. He went through a fire transformation ceremony to achieve his immortality.

His community believes in an alchemical transformation process that allows them to live to extraordinary ages after also achieving certain levels of enlightenment.

We have heard rumors of other people living to hundreds of years old but this is the first picture I’ve ever seen of somebody who is purportedly this old.

This is a big deal! I have a very extensive library of evidence of long lived persons but no pictures of anyone else more than 300 years old.

Some of his followers also are hundreds of years old and they live in a small community in a remote part of Burma.

I know it sounds ridiculous, but after all of the evidence I’ve seen of long lived persons over the years this is just another point of data showing that we all have the potential for extreme longevity if we would only believe it’s possible and take the appropriate actions.
