I love a story like this. I just hate that a reporter covers it with seriousness, and that "scientists" have to ruin it by "testing" the claims.

I like how a commentator in the article wants to purpose his ability toward soldiers in the battlefield. Wouldn't gaining his spiritual orientation contradict the will to battle?

This is not a skill or ability that can necessarily be transfered. It is likely the result of a way-of-being and requires more than just a superficial change or desire. (And that's, of course, assuming that it is legitimate--I hope there's a follow-up to the story)

Wrangler. I'm assuming it's not legit. Because I don't believe in magic. Also, Wrangler: you need to read the Bhagavad Gita, which is one big battle:

"...On the other side, both Lord Krishna and Arjuna, stationed on a great chariot drawn by white horses, sounded their transcendental conchshells."

Wishydig -- "The Hunger Artist." Yeah. Good.
