The Great Return 
Un extracto de un libro de Arthur Machen publicado en 1915

"There are strange things lost and forgotten in obscure corners of the newspaper. I often think that the most extraordinary item of intelligence that I have read in print appeared a few years ago in the London Press. It came from a well-known and most respected news agency; I imagine it was in all the papers. It was astounding. 

The circumstances necessary -not to the understanding of this paragraph, for that is out of the question- but, we will say, to the understanding of the events which made it possible, are these. We had invaded Thibet, and there had been trouble in the hierarchy of that country, and a personage known as the Tashai Lama had taken refuge with us in India. He went on pilgrimage from one Buddhist shrine to another, and come at last to a holy mountain of Buddhism, the name of which I have forgotten. And thus the morning paper: 

This Holiness the Tashai Lama then ascended the mountain and was transfigured. -Reuter. 

That was all. And from that day to this I have never heard a word of explanation or comment on this amazing statement.
