A 200-year-old mummy was discovered sitting in a lotus position in Mongolia on Tuesday, local reports revealed.
The remarkably preserved Buddhist monk as discovered in Mongolia's Songinokhairkhan province covered in skin believed to be that of a cow, horse or camel, the Asian country'sMorning News reported.  
Details about exactly where and how the mummy was found were not immediately clear.
"Experts that only had time to carry basic visual test say they believe the body can be about 200 years old," the Mongolian newspaper noted, according to The Siberian Times' translation.
Researchers believe the meditating mummy was the teacher of Dashi-Dorzo Itigilov, the noted Buryat Buddhist Lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition who was born in 1852.
His own body was found preserved and seated in a lotus position in 2002, over 70 years after his death in 1927. It is said the Lama's remains were not subject to macroscopic decay.
Experts at the Ulaanbataar National Center of Forensic Expertise are now conducting tests on the meditator's remains.
