Tibetan boy able to recite world’s longest poem after dream

“A 13-year-old Tibetan schoolboy has miraculously memorized large parts of the world’s longest poem after having had a mysterious dream.

Sitar Doje, a fifth-grader from Qamdo prefecture, had his dream two years ago and can now recite ‘The Life of King Gesar’ for up to six hours on end, the Xinhua news agency reported Wednesday.

The agency says Tibet has a long tradition of people waking from sleep inexplicably able to recite the poem from memory.” —Yahoo! News
