this is not an old story!

i was reading about him, it looks like he is going to take a public teaching place in near future, and i just amazed with his non stop sitting for a period of 4 days.
anybody met him in this forum? i dont think this is fake.

What is it about this boy that fascinates you, besides his sitting?
P.S Has anyone 'certified' his 'Buddha' title? And if not, why do people keep using it?
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

did he chose that name for himself or others named him?

the only thing fascinates me is his sitting time, do i miss something about him that you want to point to that? krishnamurti was treated in way that he became a religious leader, do you think this is a same case? by the way i have to confess sitting for that long is extraordinary.

if anyone tells me he is buddha or his reincarnation i'll think he is charlatan. i think he is a young man and he could do mistakes ( slapping people ) and has good sitting times. although currently he clam that he is enlightened, but even if it is not right i dont care because in some stages practitioner could evaluate himself wrongly.
