3 year old girl is new living Goddess

Matani Shakya is a 3 year old Nepalese girl who was appointed "kumari" or living goddess in Katmandu on Tuesday.
shes worshiped by Hindu and Buddhists alike as a incarnation of a Hindu diety.
she was one of seven who went before a panel of judges aged between 2-4 years old. they go through a series of tests the final test is spending the night in a room with ritually slaughtered animals without showing fear.
they must also be checked for imperfections..
hair, eyes, teeth, shit like that all have to be perfect.
if they pass all tests then they will stay in a temple until puberty, first sign of menstruation they pick a new one.
dont believe me?? read for yourself.
