The followers and families of India’s wealthiest guru, His Holiness Shri Ashutosh Maharaj, are fighting each other over whether he is dead—or just in a deep state of meditation. According to his wife and son, his property estate is worth $167 million. However, his disciples refuse to let them cremate him because they believe he went into a deep Samadhi, or meditation, and have frozen his body to preserve it for when he wakes up. While the guru is believed to have died from a heart attack, a Punjab high court dismissed the matter, saying it was a spiritual matter and that the followers cannot be forced to believe he’s dead. As a result, the wife and son have filed a case in court asking for a ruling on the death and for his body to be released for cremation.
