Slander against Ms Takacs

by This Website | Feb 14, 2015
Instead of apologizing for the illegal detention of Ms Takacs, the theft of her belongings and the abuses made by the entourage of Ramlal Bomjon, two years later the campaign of defamation continued.

Slander instead of compassion

In 2011 a devotee, Ms Takacs, then moderator of the Google Group dedicated to discussions for the International audience of curious, devotees, and ‘Truth seekers’ as they call them, moderator together with Mrs Andrea Good, came to Halkhoriya to meditate. She was there long before the March 2012 Maitri Peace Puja was to take place. The detention started before the puja and continued through that very puja. The initial campaign against Ms Takacs was orchestrated by the then Khenpo Sonam Gyurme, and Andrea Good. To counter the web posts where Ms Takacs tells the world her story, their first moves were not to apologize to her. They chose instead to cover-up what happened by making Ms Takacs guilty of her own detention, excluding her from the community, and banning her access to the very Google Group she helped shape and animate.
Unhappy with those measure, as new articles kept emerging, the leaders of the organization of Ramlal Bomjon, kept explaining away those publication by further slandering the character and reputation of Ms Takacs. While two years later in 2013, no one at management positions within the organization ever made the effort to compassionately apologize to her and offer Ms Takacs reparation for her taken belongings that had never been given back to her.
Instead the propaganda against Ms Takacs takes on a new level where the president of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha, uses the pseudo-expert opinion of a wannabe monk, a Doctor in psychology waiting to be approved as the monk of Mr Ramlal Bomjon based on a photography. The pseudo-expert opinion, which that ‘great’ specialist establishes by reading the web posts of Ms Takacs, tells more about the specialist than about the person he is diagnosing. The famous ‘online diagnosis’! We can let everyone be the judge for himself of the validity of such a diagnosis, and also about the motivations for circulating that diagnosis within the Google Group of devotees ‘controlled by Mrs Andrea Good’. The famous ‘Etapasvi GG’ at: etapasvi@googlegroups.com.
This is a screen shot of the email sent to that group, private emails have been blacked out, and also a part that is a direct insult and probably the most abject slander against Ms Takacs. While being unable to reach Ms Takacs and request her permission or that of her legal team, I am not in the ability to publish that part:

Slander document

It is worthy highlighting that the organization of Mr Ramlal Bomjon publicly claims that its purpose is “The BSDS should be based on the spiritual principles and rules of The Most Venerable Dharma Sangha, promoting peace, knowledge, and the welfare of all sentient beings” (Rules_and_Regulations_of_Bodhi_Shrawan_Dharma_Sangha_en.pdf) – (a document created by Khenpo Sonam Gyurme) – Rules and Regulations of BSDS_en, at every single problem they have with other human beings, they choose to apply totally different standards from those of ‘peace, knowledge, and welfare of those very sentient beings. It is also worthy noting that the word compassion is totally absent from those Rules and Regulations of their, maybe, not entirely so Venerable Mr Ramlal Bomjon.
Our un-enlightened minds probably have some problems understanding what spiritual principles and rules of Mr Ramlal Bomjon were applied in this case and everything that surrounds it?
In these dramatic events one should never forget or confuse who are the victims of illegal detentions, and who is executing the illegal detentions. Blaming the victim cannot in any possible way justify the criminal actions that were committed. It is also not serving the promotion of any peace, it is not promoting the welfare of “ANY” sentient being either.
To add another level of twisted circumstances to this, the president of the ‘International Sangha’ as they call it, Kim Nguyen, tells me in private that most of what Ms Takacs writes is actually correct. She even goes further to say that she gets herself at times more information from those web posts than from within the organization.

Attack on the press during puja

Attack on the press during puja

by This Website | Apr 05, 2015
While detaining a women, a puja set to promote peace and compassion is organized in 2012 during which journalists were attacked by Bomjon’s aides.

Attack on the press

What we imagine, and this is where the word imagine gets all of its power, is not a controversial figure who likes to fly by helicopter, who gets involved in physical abuse over his monks, his family, his devotees. We were all expecting a sort of highly ethical, highly intelligent and discerning being. Instead, at every incident, at any sign of debate or opposition we are witnessing an autocratic, disconnected from reality and the very basic norms of ethical behavior, who knows nothing else than respond with violence and set himself up above the authority of the laws that govern our rights and freedom.
He sets himself as the sole repository of what he calls ‘true dharma’ and tells us no one in any worlds has authority over him. In due time, he tells, he will respond to the objections to the Universe. Or at least that’s how their website mistranslates and uses the word Universe instead of World.
When he is being called the greatest gift from Nepal to mankind, watch out on the sort of gift you are getting.

Bomjon’s boys go unruly‚ beat up journos –

HIMALAYAN NEWS SERVICE PATHLAIYA:Volunteers attending to Ram Bahadur Bomjon, who is said to be meditating in the Halkhoriya jungle area of Bara since 2005, today beat up five journalists. Bibhu Adhikari of News 24 TV, Resham Tiwari of NTV, Prakash Lamsal of Image Channel, Binod Pyakurel of TTV and Basant Khatiwada of the Mofasal Dot Com Weekly fell victim to the wrath of the aides of Bomjon, who is also nicknamed Buddha Boy. Following the attack, the journalists rushed to an Armed Police Force camp in Piluwa. “We were filming Bomjon’s sermon but suddenly his aides attacked us and seized our cameras,” said Adhikari. Police had reached Halkhoriya after the incident, but they too were barred from entering the site where Bomjon was giving his sermon. Police, however, managed to get journalists’ cameras back. (Thehimalayantimes.com )

Let’s decrypt

Why were the journalists attacked? Why such a need to prevent any photos from being taken? What brought the journalist there in the first place? Let’s try to answer the questions.
During this very puja, Ms Takacs was detained. Could it be that journalists taking pictures needn’t happen? Very bad image indeed, a woman tied up, detained, during a Puja about peace and compassion, and their guru giving a speech. They so much can’t cope with what they have done, that year after year the only program they really provide is a program of deception, of covering up the unacceptable and unethical detention of human beings by lies and a series of attempts to discredit the victims, instead of acting with the compassion they preach about.
The men rushing to attack the press are the closest aides to Bomjon, the polish national Tomek Tarnowski (Tom Dorje), which the journalists mistakenly take for a German, and Darshan Limbu, who are also the main executors of the detention and captivity of two women, Ms Takacs and the Nepali healer lady, captured on camera and on still photographies by over half a dozen journalists while confronting the journalists. Ramlal Bomjon’s attendants attack journalists
It took contacting the police in another town and getting them to intervene for the journalists to get back their equipment, snatched by the aides of Bomjon.
Even worse, it’s an accumulated collection of unethical conduct that stains and discredits any valuable lesson that might be contained in the Buddhist-like speeches given by Mr Ramlal Bomjon. What is common to all of them, is a constant denial of responsibility, a systematic blame of the other side.
– A Spanish Woman – A young western adult – Ms Takacs – Villagers from Bara – The brother of Ramlal – Demonstration for the passport of Mr Ramlal that ended up in a collective display of violence – Villagers in September 2014 again in Halkhoriya detained two men then global fight between villagers and Bomjon aides follows.
The list is quite long, over 40 people we know about so far.
In none of these occurrences did Mr Ramlal appease the situation, never did he use the opportunity to dispense a ‘teaching’. Only slightly maybe in September 2014 when he very swiftly apologized to the police that arrived on the scene. What’s been consistent on the contrary for each of these events, is a coordinated effort to provide a quick dismissal of accountability and a blame on the other parties. If Mr Ramlal Bomjon cannot even educate his aides on how to act with compassion, then maybe all his devotees could remind him that laws exist, and violence is condemned in our societies. Even in Nepal.
