MJ Mausoleum -- Who's Ready for Yoga?!

8/3/2010 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MJ's mausoleum is about to be penetrated by a busload of hardcore Yoga enthusiasts ... and TMZ has learned Forest Lawn is welcoming them with open arms.

0910_media_removed_Lindsay_Lohan1
According to sources at the cemetery, the followers of Paramahansa Yogananda (pictured top right) -- a famous Indian guru and yogi who died almost 60 years ago -- plan to visit their master's crypt today for a prayer ritual ... and his crypt happens to be inside the same mausoleum where MJ resides.

The problem -- the Great Mausoleum has been on lockdown mode for months -- thanks to some overzealous MJ fans -- with the cemetery threatening to remove Jacko-holics by force if they're caught anywhere near the building.

But we're told since Yogananda's followers have been doing their prayer thing in the mausoleum for years -- and have never caused a problem -- they're cool to enter the area.

However, according to our sources, MJ's tomb will be covered with a screen during the spiritual visit -- and get this ... it's all because security is afraid a few crazed MJ fans could pose as yoga enthusiasts ... just to sneak into the mausoleum.

Namaste.

Thank you so much for your nice words, Siggisis! I'm sure they do love me as much as I do love them. And oh, how I can strike back when it comes to Justin Bieber or that „vampiresque“ Robert Pattinson, lol.

I guess the full moon could have been the reason why the the date of the burial was postponed from August 29th (Michael's birthday) to September 3rd. Originally the service should start at 7 p.m. (when the moon rose that day), but because the Jackson family wasn't in time at FL it began with a delay.

Why would a famous Indian guru and yogi named Paramahansa Yogananda be laid to rest amongst all those Christian stained glass windows and other christian art? You would think it would be an abomodantion to Paramhansa Yogananda.

What no plaster Elephants that ooze milk? or multi-armed maidens?

I don't generalize. I most often, emphasize FANS as separate entities from the fanatic rabids. Unless, I've inadvertently forgotten to do so.

Tellit, if you really do make this difference, then I’m fine. I just couldn’t find that in your posts anymore and noticed that you are more and more changing from rationalism (what I have always very appreciated) to radicalism. I can't understand that, because the majority of people posting pro-Michael here still is peaceful, just interested in talking about MJ and finding out what might have happened to him. They certainly don’t deserve the label “rabid fanatical fan”, and it's not necessary to provoke them.

And no, Tellit, I have never accused you to use several nics (as you, admittedly, did in the past). Maybe you still do, maybe you don’t. To tell the truth, I have never really cared about that. Strange, but even if there is one person with different virtual characters here I’m somehow able to deal with it. Part of the game, I guess.

Peace as well – and: Love is the answer!

53. Tellit, if you already call people “rabid” who do nothing worse than to consider Michael Jackson as a “historical person” – what adjective would, in your opinion, then be appropriate for those who articulate hate and swearwords.....?

__________

rab·id [rábbid]
adj
1. fanatical: very enthusiastic about an idea, belief, or activity, often to the point of being blind to other opinions, beliefs, or preferences
2. intense: feeling or showing an emotion or need extremely intensely
a rabid lust for power
3. violent: marked by ferociousness or violence

1+2+3=Michael Jackson fans.

They advocate and display ALL the above characteristics.
So did Michael Jackson.
And WOW....I must be bringing the termites out of the woodwork!! lmao...

Wrong, Tellit.
You know what I tell my kids all the time? "Don't EVER generalize!"
Don't ever say THE people from USA/Italy/Turkey, don't ever say THE pupils from the other school, don't ever say THE fans of the opposite soccer team.
Do ALWAYS differentiate. There are nice or ugly, tolerant or fanatical folks among all nations, among all groups of people.
It seems necessary to direct your attention on the fact that is valid as well for MJ-fans, and that you should never talk about THE MJ-fans.
I, for my part, am a fan. But I, for my part, have never called YOU a termite coming out of the woodwork, squishing out some maggots.
So, what does that tell us?

@ moni
GEEWIZ.....moni....
I just now had time to read my post. YIKES!
I need to correct a MAJOR mistake/oversight.....
meant to write.....
1+2+3= Michael Jackson fanatic rabid fans

NOW...I understand why you wrote...the "generalization" business and...
"I, for my part, am a fan."

like I said before I had never considered you a fanatic until recently....
only the hardcore fanatics believe me to be OhWell, Deb, Trish, etc. etc.

WOW....TMZ....
"However, according to our sources, MJ's tomb will be covered with a screen during the spiritual visit -- and get this ... it's all because security is afraid a few crazed MJ fans could pose as yoga enthusiasts ... just to sneak into the mausoleum."

I could have sworn your original story earlier this am read....
"MJs tombe will be covered with a black curtain..."
and something about fear of somebody/fans posing as members of the group in order to get inside/take photos of MJs tomb..
did your editors change it up? (like you change up photos: ex; LMP, MJ, etc.)

When I first read it...I thought why not a white curtain? I thought now why would a Yogananda follower want to take a photo of Michael Jacksons crypt?
Guess the black curtain business was too morbid...symbolic...
so the text's been changed to read "a screen". (by FL or by TMZ?)

imo...members of the group/followers...already of a formed opinion...aware/hearing/reading of Michael Jacksons 1993 mess...the 2005 trial...the Jesus Juice business...the Michael Jackson at the head of the Last Supper that hung directly above his bed....the publication of Michael Jackson as Christ, an Angel, representative of the Beautification....
requested that a curtain or screen be put in place prior to their passage past his crypt.

After all they are on a religious pilgrimage....Not a sightseeing tour of depravity.

If this was reason for the "screen"....
there was no need.....

Michael Jackson is not "dead".
And his body is for sure not at Forest Lawn.

TO TMZ AND MAUSOLEUM OFFICIALS MICHAEL JACKSON FANS ARE NOT CRAZED. THEY ARE SIMPLY PEOPLE WHO LOVED HIM VERY MUCH. I DO NOT LIKE MJ FANS BEING REFERRED TO LIKE NUT CASES. MOST OF THE MJ FANS I KNOW PERSONALLY ARE JUDGES, FACTORY WORKERS, I HAVE A PERSONAL FRIEND WHI IS THE SHERIFF OF THIS COUNTY. AND THERE ARE MANY, MANY POLICE OFFICERS WHO ARE MJ FANS. SHOW SOME RESPECT....ALSO I'VE GOT YOUR BACK MJ, FOR WHAT EVER IT'S WORTH. LOVE YOU ETERNALLY.

This is stupid. The Jackson Family should hire and give permission to a photographer to take pictures of his crypt and post them so all can see. That will end a lot of "mystery".

The family should be ashamed of themselves. Michael WAS ONLY A MAN, FLESH AND BLOOD. And now back to dust to dust. The family should let his fans see his crypt. Elvis's family let his fans visit his gravesite and Elvis was extremely popular.

You can even go to the middle east and see where Christ was laid to rest before he arose but you can't see Michael Jackson's crypt. Please. This needs to end. Let a few fans in to see the crypt. He lived and died for his overseas "FANS" especially. The tour was going to be OVERSEAS not here in the states. American fans were going to get bumpkus.
