While it was already known that there was a mummified body inside, the staff was unanimously surprised to find a lack of internal organs. Instead, the mummy had an empty chest cavity, filled with with only a rotting piece of paper. The paper was extracted and inspected and the lettering was identified as ancient Chinese with the man’s name: Liuquan. The researchers believe he died approximately 1000 years ago in the year 1100 AD! It is believed that Liuquan was a successfully preserved example of “self-mummification”, Sokushinbutsu , or “即身仏”, a painful practice that is now outlawed in Japan. In the era of Liuquan, Buddhist monks viewed the long and excruciating practice of self-mummification to be the epitome of enlightenment. The arduous process was the closest to the revered Buddha one could be. In fact, Buddhists claim that the monk preserved in statue is not deceased at all, but in a further, deeper state of meditation.

Mummified remains of a monk have been found encased in a Buddha statue dating back to the 11th or 12th Century. Erik Bruijn, an Buddhism expert, led the study that determined the mummy was of Buddhist master Liuquan, who belonged to the Chinese Meditation School. The CT scan and endoscopy were carried out by Drents Museum at Meander Medical Centre in the Netherlands. Researchers knew that there were remains dating back to the 11th or 12th Century in the statue, but it wasn't until the CT scan that they discovered all of the monk's organs had been removed and replaced with scraps of paper printed with ancient Chinese characters and other rotted material that still has not yet been identified. How the organs had been taken from the mummy remains a mystery. Many practicing Buddhists believe that mummies like that of Buddhist master Liuquan aren't actually dead, but are rather in an advanced state of meditation, according to International Business Times.
