    What do you guys know about the incident in 1999 when that group of people thought they saw Hanuman?

    [​IMG]

    This is the story:

    "On 18th, Tuesday, 1999 I received from Sister Bhuvana the same picture , in response to my posting on the net about this Hanuman. She had got this from some body else. I reproduce below what she heard.
    "This is the latest thing going on here. A group of people went to Manas-sarovar for a piligrimage trip. One of the person there is a Upasaka of Hanuman. He was exploring some caves and accidentally bounced upon a being looking like Lord Hanuman. All of them had cameras and this person happend to click the camera and died there for reasons not known. The other persons fished him out and the camera and here is the picture the camera showed. I do not know how much it is true but many people are believing it. It is a fact that Hanuman does exist in flesh and blood because he is a Chiranjeevi".



    This is what now I have got from a person who says it is one of the few originals of the Hanuman photos. The government of India every year during the summer "before the onslaught of monsoon", gives permissions after medical check up, to selected individuals and send them in groups to Manasarovar. Such groups necessarily will consist of different nationalities, and different people from different regions of India. This photograph appears to have been taken by a person during the summer of 1998. It is said that He saw a light inside a cave and he clicked the light and he died (This part every one is confirming). Later the friends developed the roll from the camera and got this print!"

    lawlz...This is so cliche and cheesy. What urban legend doesn't start off like this? And the picture is clearly an illustration. :rolleyes:x10

    Lol, true. And I agree that the pic is an illustration. So why are people believing this? Is there more info about to further explain any of this?

    People believe it because they want it to be true. It makes them happy to think that they are aware of some special knowledge that few others know.

    apart from that it also once again helps them reinforce in a belief that there is an external agency responsible for their fate and they can by false belief continue to do good or bad karma and they cannot be held responsible for it.

    it is the basic human mind of shifting the blame onto others.

    Some people believe this photo is true because their minds want them to believe it. By the same token, some people do not believe the photo is true because their minds do not want them to believe it.

    What my mind tells me to believe is the word of Valmiki Rishi and Veda Vyasji- I do believe that Lord Hanuman is Chiranjeevi and is present anywhere Lord Rama's devotion is present. Regarding the photo, I have no problem in bowing to the photo as that of Hanumanji.

    Regards,

    Don't you believe in mahavatar babaji, isn't his case also a bit similar to this? I am not attacking you, btw, just wondering.

    Friend Madhuri,

    It depends on what the individual's mind would like to *believe*!
    Personally am neutral to facts to which have no personal experience as mind matters are best left alone.
    Love & rgds

    Still though, there must be other information out there. Like if there was an autopsy on the man who dies, or if other people have been to this cave and seen a picture. It's a weird story. Almost too weird to anything but completely made up.

    I think the picture is reminiscent of demons found in other religions. I don't mean any offense by it, I am just observing what I think it looks like. Hope that is OK.

    well all though it is a bit late to reply...as the last reply was posted in 2011...but still as i am here so will be many after me...so here it goes.


    i saw this image on front page of the daily DAINIC JAGRAN in 1998/99 ...might be that it was clicked then or before or it might be that it was a hoax...who knows.

    anyways that is not the point . The point is that when it comes to faith , fact and science do not prevail only FAITH does. A person might be of any religion but he/she does not need a reason to follow what has been followed by his/her family and their fore fathers....same is the case over here . The epic RAMAYANA has no specific date of being written some equate it being written before MAHABHARATA and some after.

    Anyways it will take lot of time in getting into the details of the both, so coming back to what we have over here.Being a scholar of philosophy(not just indian western as well) i do not just heed to anything being said or put forward , i need a reason and understanding of what is being said so that i can agree or counter it....for me same is the case over here if you believe in HANUMAN does it matter that you need evidence for that.

    Giving you all an example 2013 BC JESUS was born as they say , but how many of us have seen him or for that matter know this is the precise date of him being born. Just because this has been passed along generation to generation we accept it and don't question it.

    if you believe in him just believe do not bring in fact evidence and science...because BELIEF is based on FAITH not EVIDENCE.

    To me, it looks like either an illustration or a photograph of a sculpture.

    Another red flag is that it took place in the Himalayan mountains - a nice remote location is perfect for coming up with stories that can't be verified or where there are only a few "witnesses".

    I also don't think that Hanuman would kill a man simply because he took a picture. Also, if Hanuman is still around, he's probably clever enough not to be found.
