Mr Ramlal Bomjon accomplices

While Ram Bomjon keeps making new victims, make sure you don’t become his next one. Use your intelligence, your common sense, your logic and your heart before falling prey to someone else’s delusions.

 

Mr Ramlal Bomjon accomplices

Key position holders involved in a meticulous cover up

How can seemingly educated westerners fall down to the level of accomplices of crimes against other innocent humans? These are people that you would have a coffee or chat with and would appear to be fairly rational, some of them might even be considered as fairly intelligent, at least in appearance. Of course all that rational and apparent intelligence blurs out as soon as you know what they have been involved in. Ram Bomjon carries out only some of the crimes himself. For the most part, he gives orders, and those are absolutely scrupulously executed. For the chaining and criminal detention of those now famously known two women, a European lady and a Nepali lady, it had been conducted with the active participation and assistance of quite a number of players. We will at a later date fully disclose all the details of those detentions. For the time being if you don’t know the story, check some of the earlier posts we made about it.

All the key stakeholders of that organization are involved at various degrees in this venture of ‘organized crime’. We call it ‘organized crime’ for it is pretty well organized, there is a very tight control on what information goes out and what doesn’t. From the American/Vietnamese born president, to the members of the committees, through to all the publicly known positions of ‘International director’, assistants, translators, Russian webmaster, the Taiwanese Mama marketing and publishing tycoon, every one of them assists directly or indirectly in the cover up. It is also a fairly good qualification of ‘organized crime’ as it is organized and criminal in nature. It is criminal to detain people and to torture them, it is criminal to beat people, it is criminal also to use children for hard labour. As soon as you know those are/were committed, when you send donations to this organization, you are yourself becoming an accomplice of the crimes your money is helping commit.

All you need is love and compassion but all Ram Bomjon needs from you is money and recognition of his illusory ‘authority’

In all this time, about 10 years now, big claims were made by Ram Bomjon. Actually we all fell in the trap. It was a young (it seemed innocent and genuine peasant boy from a tiny village in the Nepali south Jungle of Bara), a boy who left to meditate ‘for the benefit of all sentient beings’. Who on earth would even think either disturbing or troubling the fantastic accomplishment we were all lead to believe? The BBC wrote articles about him, it was on all the major international news networks. To make the story even more attractive a parallel was drawn between him and the historical Buddha. Millions of people flocked to meet him, to get blessed by him. And actually, right at the very beginning, there probably was this genuine goal and desire in that young boy then. Sadly with fame came trailing right behind it, greed, the greed of many around him. A multi-faceted greed, some were after money, some wanted to hold a unique role next the new ‘Buddha’, others wanted a ticket to a supersonic flight to enlightenment for themselves. Right from the start it was a very heterogeneous crowd, but right from the start the amazing flow of donations twisted the heads of many.

When did he start eating and drinking actually? Very quickly. Check the historical photos of him and you should be able to notice he was quickly gaining weight actually. Now he is a fatsy that doesn’t renounce on anything.

Too young, too early, too much pressure, the addictive taste of money and power, beyond corrupting the successive entourages of Ram Bomjon, it started also corrupting Ram Bomjon himself. At what point exactly did he loose it? At what point did he fall in the delusion about what he thinks is his ‘unquestionable authority’? That and many other questions might never find their answer. And in fact the answer is somewhat irrelevant in the face of all these crimes. One thing is sure, things started going wrong very very early on. Legends kept being fed to the public, no food no drink for 6 years! Bullshit! Sex, food and travels were on his program quite early, while for public consumption he is told to be meditating for the ‘benefit of all sentient beings’. But understand this well, without the legend, there is no faith in him, without the faith there is no donations, without donations and without the bunch of blind and fanatic devotees he has there is no ‘power or authority’ for him.

From the earliest moments of his started penance (tapasya), everyone around him treated him like a living god, above everyone, above the law, and they considered that whatever he does is ‘pure and enlightened’. However if anyone would question anything, his commando of censorship and propaganda would either retaliate or even one would be detained and tortured. If that wasn’t enough Ram would make sure the severity of the punishment was increased. From that encouraged, supported feeling of authority, through to a never achieved process towards enlightenment, Ram reached probably within the maze of his own mind only, and through the infinite power of self-delusion the belief he was IT. He encountered all these ‘beings’ in his own mind, generated by his mind, lost in the infinite space of the infinite possibilities our minds have to trick us, as it does to all of us. The difference though being none of us thinks we are a supreme ‘authority’ directly connected with a red line to ‘all the masters of the past’ (what a nice marketing trick also), and that we can do whatever we want down here, even all the way to harming other beings gravely.

Whichever the point at which he lost it, he seems to still not have realized he has lost it. Him and many even advanced meditators confuse ‘siddhis’ – ‘special powers achieved through meditation’ with true Nirvana or Enlightenment. And in the western culture many fall for gurus manifesting or materializing stones, or eggs, or whatever. They could be called simple ‘gurists’, tourists of gurus. They brag how they’ve seen with their own eyes miracles, they show off their imagined expertise. Essentially they swagger. That’s in fact the bottom line. Yet the consequence of that unawareness in conjunction with the active support of all the gloaters of different trades and specialties, gave rise to all the crimes and lies, and abuses, and scandals being done.

Furthermore, the crowd and their idol enhance and amplify each others’ delusion. That would be fine altogether if it was not for all the collateral victims along the way. Anyone can believe whatever he likes. The problem is not beliefs (although those very beliefs are also a factor in making those crimes possible), and this is not a post about the dangers of believing, the problem is about violence, crimes, and the victims that are left on the way, with sometimes lifelong consequences.

2012 and the Nepali and European ladies detentions is not the only ones we are referring to. Since, very sadly there has been many more. Some for which we cannot release the information just yet. Some for which you already have some of the details already revealed. And we are not talking about only one or two more case, but quite many more. All we can tell you so far without endangering some of his victims, is that once you have read these, you will no longer be able to say ‘I didn’t know’. And remember that the only reason for disclosing these actions is to make Ram Bomjon stop his violence and face the consequences of his orders and actions together with all of those that committed those crimes with him, Westerners and Nepalis alike. They cannot undo the harm they have done, but they still can stop making new victims, and they still can attempt to repair at least a part of the damage they have caused.

Conclusion

While there is no doubt that among his followers there are people with a genuine good heart and disposition towards ‘benefiting all sentient beings’, everyone should remember that in ‘all sentient beings’ there is the word ‘all’. All doesn’t mean everyone apart from this one or that one, ‘all’ does mean each and every single sentient being without any exceptions. The best way of benefiting every being, is to oppose all forms of violence, even when that violence comes from someone some people are considering to be a guide or a teacher.

We are opposing the violence, we are denouncing it, for the benefit of all, for the benefit of the victims, for the benefit of the believers in Ram Bomjon, for the benefit of Ram Bomjon himself, for the benefit also of those who participated in committing those crimes for Ram Bomjon, for the benefit of those who are still blinded by their faith, and for the benefit of those who know what’s been done and feel stuck and unable to do or say anything.

Delusional Mr Ramlal Bomjon

 

From: http://web.archive.org/web/20161206115555/http://www.dharma-sangha.com:80/news/2016/01/13/delusional-mr-ramlal-bomjon

Decrypting the attack against Mr Gyurme. What happened for Mr Bomjon to blame someone 5 years later for his own failures.

The original text in italic, and our comments in light blue bold:

Sonam Gyurme Bal Tamang formerly of Jhapa District, Nepal first entered the sacred Tapasya Grounds in the Halkhoria Jungle of Ratanpuri V.D.C. in August of 2010, less than a year before Guru Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha would complete His six-year penitential tapasya austerities. After some interviewing, Sonam came under the Meditator’s refuge and was hired to work as Meditator’s assistant with the honorary title of Khenpo. He gave his solemn word to obey and perform his given duties faithfully. Having studied in Gangtok, Sikkim, India at the Nyingma Institute under Kyabje Rigjin Dorje Rinpoche, Sonam was a follower of the previous Path with considerable advanced training in the previous knowledge.

– It should be highlighted that Mr Bomjon here talks about the recruitment of Mr Sonam Gyurme he conducted himself. He chose the guy, then fires him. But you would think it’s such an old story, what does it have to do today with all this out-pour of uncontrolled anger and frustration. While Mr Bomjon didn’t give anyone any explanations either at the moment he hired him, or at the moment he fired him, why now? All of a sudden his personally ‘chosen’ and ‘titled’ khenpo, is portrayed by Mr Bomjon as the worst man on earth, the one who dares ‘oppose’ dharma. 2010, 2016? Did Mr Gyurme ‘oppose’ Mr Bomjon’s ‘dharma’ all this time, and it’s only now that Mr Bomjon finds out about it? Or is there some other elements in here, which are not mentioned at all? Elements that would explain this crazy like outburst from Mr Bomjon?

Just as the physical world has its mores, laws and regulations, so does Dharma have its own mores, laws and regulations. Dharma or Guru will not be opposed. This Truth is difficult to comprehend for people who have not undergone true tapas, profound contemplation and extreme austerities in penitential meditation. What were the mores, laws and regulations of the previous knowledge gained from the previous path? How much of it is true knowledge, free of added fabrications? The world may know, perhaps. Before the six-year meditations and austerities a set of worldly mores, laws and regulations had been followed. The Bodhi Path Maitri Dharma (BodhiMarga darshan MaitriDharma) now attained contains a distinct and different set of mores, laws and regulations. And once revealed for the benefit of the world and the liberation of all living beings, all Guru’s actions, deeds, words or even thoughts are within dharma’s mores, laws and regulations, at all times. Dharma is the universe, and the essence that sustains it.

– The very tenants of the total delusion Mr Bomjon finds himself in is usually labelled ‘Dualism’. A place where you confront the ‘old’ and the ‘new’, the good and the bad, the guru and the opposer of dharma. He talks all the time about a ‘dharma’ that he has, by the way, never explained. He has been using the term over and over again but only to illustrate his perception of his ‘authority’. He is equating himself with that undefined ‘dharma’, and talks of laws and regulations (even mores now) governing it. Yet all in truth, this entire universe is governed by is a single principle “Cause and Effect”. Any causal process is just merely an appearance of the moment, and none of the appearances can lay claim to be or reflect the true nature of Reality. There is a Totality that embraces the infinity of appearances. To project anything more onto this perception, or to cling to it as though it were the final truth, would be to fall into delusion. Which seems exactly what Mr Bomjon is doing.

He has named himself a guru, depository of a teaching that he has never imparted, neither before Mr Gyurme, nor after the departure of Mr Gyurme. To be clear, for now the concepts of Mr Bomjon are perhaps just barely understood by himself, if at all. Although he seems to be swimming in his own contradictions most of the time. He calls his own world view the Truth, yet didn’t give any sign out of his own behavior that he had indeed discovered ‘the Truth’. While this very so called truth doesn’t seem to have freed him from any of the usual afflictions of deluded men, like anger, emotions, irrational behaviour, or as seen in the violence he has against women and men he thinks are ‘against’ him.

Mr Bomjon himself kept telling he will give some unique teaching that supersedes all other teachings, yet all he has really shown every one is his own irrational despotic behaviour. The way he treats women, even his own girl/friend wife. The way he shows his fury. The way he feels above everyone else, the way he talks the vocabulary of a fundamentalist with big titles like World Peace Puja, Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha, but no substance at the core. No known examples or demonstrations of his own compassion, only of his ‘authority’ that he claims should be unquestionable.

In Dharma, sins may be forgiven only under three conditions: when committed out of ignorance, without knowing, or under compulsion. But for those who commit sins outside these three conditions, there is no pardon or forgiveness, but only abandonment. Should anyone, even dharma gurus, commit the sin of opposing dharma they will never be able to follow dharma again; nor will they ever receive another human life, animal life or even a ghostly life, having completely extinguished their own souls.

– Now back to the early age of religion and the notion of ‘sin’. What a powerful tool to manipulate the gullible and the weak. Is that part of the ‘new’ teachings? So three conditions: out of ignorance, not knowing and under compulsion. What’s the difference between not knowing and ignorance? Probably anger didn’t make him even realize the two are more or less the same. And now onto the ‘no pardon or forgiveness’. Wow. Only abandonment? No half measures, radical! Gone is compassion with the wind! The Maha efforts towards compassion and treating ‘every’ single being like ‘one’s own child’, flying through the window like a spit to clear a throat. We go from ‘dharma’ to total annihilation, let’s even affect all the future ‘presumed’ lives of a hypothetical ever surviving soul or souls, smashed! And it gets more than interesting to read the last words of the sentence: ‘having completely extinguished their own souls’. So the ‘new’ delusional philosophy of Mr Bomjon attributes the existence of multiple souls, that get completely extinguished. So many new concepts and tenants unexplained to accept and try to follow for his devotees. Good luck guys!

When Sonam Gyurme began to work for Guru, he was hired to write a small scripture based on the omniscient wisdom of Bodhi Marga darshan Maitriya Dharma as revealed to Guru for the world’s wellbeing and for the salvation of all living beings in the universe. It was to be part of the coming Maitriya Puja Mahadarshan programme for world peace marking completion of Guru’s long tapasya. In the beginning, Sonam appeared to be faithfully recording the Maitri wisdom as spoken by Guru. But in no time his conduct turned subversive and sacrilegious. He presented Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha Guru as a follower of the previous path, offering the old knowledge. Fully intent on destroying Maitri Dharma and to conceal the true Guru Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha, Sonam Gyurme filled the scripture with familiar old knowledge rehashed in his own fabrications and needless untruths, turning dharmic wisdom upside down. He resolved to prevent BodhiMarga darshan MaitriDharma from superseding his own old path of previous knowledge.

– Since very early on, Mr Bomjon has been convinced of his holding the truth by the balls, he doesn’t deal with modesty or simplicity, he straightly qualifies his own perception as the ‘omniscient wisdom of Bodhi Marga darshan Maitriya Dharma (yet another new form of pompous terminology, unexplained) revealed to Mr Bomjon (remember he calls himself Guru and many other names as he loves big titles and helicopter rides). He also loves telephones to the point of being close to breaking the world record of the number of mobile phone subscriptions for a single person. Maybe mobile phones are the way he gets the revelations with, from Bodhi Marga …. (let’s hope they are not long distance satellite calls). Or is it just one of the side effects of a paranoid delusional state in which one is seeing traitors all around oneself? So back in 2010 Mr Sonam ‘in no time’ ‘turned subversive and sacrilegious? And Mr Bomjon still didn’t get over it? His enlightenment plan probably didn’t have a forgiveness option. Or maybe when you capture women, beat people, that option gets removed it looks like.

Check now what was the ‘crime’ of Mr Gyurme? He presented Mr Bomjon who call himself also Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha, as a follower of the previous path, offering old knowledge. My goodness! Such a bad guy this Mr Gyurme, it’s like selling out of date food at the supermarket. And now it takes 4 to 5 years for Mr Bomjon to tell us that! We’ve been eating out-dated food since 2010 without anyone telling us! That’s outrageous. We should all ask for a refund!

Further overstepping his authority, Sonam proposed outrageous plans to attract donations. Instead of raising spiritual awareness, he put forward many materialistic projects to incite greed and avarice, guiding covetous persons to focus on selfish interests. And without first reporting to Guru, Sonam Gyurme masterminded the 15-day MahaDarshan Maitri Puja (20 May – 6 June, 2011) giving long speeches on the microphone about the various ambitious worldly projects entirely of his own design. Veering from Dharma, he launched in the name of Dharma a Maitriya School, Maitriya Hospital, Maitriya Mansion, Maitriya Dharma Hall, and Maitriya Global Media turning the massive outpouring of love and faith into an enterprise. To many worldly people these became most alluring opportunities. Believing the projects to have been approved by the Guru Himself, local and world sangha members and followers then collected millions upon millions of rupees. But it soon transpired that management of these vast sums was becoming seriously corrupt, for when the 15- day Puja was over, none of the many millions collected in donations could be accounted for. Sonam Gyurme and his assistants were asked to give a detailed report to the assembled Committee of all that they had done. Without compliance or informing anyone, Sonam Gyurme vanished one August night in 2011, having subverted the love, trust and faithful devotion for the Guru not only of local villagers and lay lamas and previous lama followers, but also of global devotees and world sangha. In his wake, he left confusion, frustrated greed and bitterness among the rest. He has not been heard from since, and is said to have left the country. In every way possible, Sonam Gyurme had been obstructing the clarification and dissemination of BodhiMarga darshan MaitriDharma by Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha Guru causing suffering, torment and anguish. At the same time, he was telling the world that Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha was no one special but only another guide of the previous Path, thus fanning doubts and confusion among the world sangha.

 – It gets juicy now. This paragraph is great, one could almost sense the moment Mr Bomjon has been thinking let’s use this opportunity to throw all the blame for my own failures onto Mr Gyurme, no one will even notice, they are all so gullible anyway. So all the outrageous plans that have never stopped, including the latest to build a giant over 21 meter high thangka, were plans to attract donations by Mr Gyurme. What a powerful man this Mr Gyurme who can continue to have canny plans to attract donations even 4 years after Mr Bomjon fired him. The 15-days Maha Darshan Maitri Puja (again they love those big names, it’s like with the washing powder that washes whiter than white), was the masterminded plan of Mr Gyurme. One would wonder again, if so why did Mr Bomjon agree with it, or if he didn’t why didn’t he reject it then but tells us all about it now 5 years later. He holds old grudges it seems.

Mr Gyurme long gone, and the grand scheme projects continued, helicopter flights were probably also Mr Gyurme’s idea, this Mr Gyurme surely must be guilty of everything. How have all the other millions of rupees from donations been spent since Mr Gyurme is gone? So this so guilty for everything Mr Gyurme ‘has been obstructing the clarification and dissemination’ of Mr Bomjon perception of the his own delusions, and by that ‘causing suffering, torment and anguish. Wow! What did Mr Bomjon do to the women he ordered chained, to those he beat, to those who believed him and waited the promised ‘teachings’? Did Mr Bomjon cause any suffering to them? We are talking here of Mr Bomjon actually and not Mr Gyurme. Mr Bomjon is the self-proclaimed head of his own organization. He hires and fires. He makes the requests and things are brought/bought for him.

-This one deserves a special paragraph. “At the same time, he was telling the world that “Mr Bomjon” was no one special. Wow now that’s interesting. One would wish that Mr Gyurme said it earlier and in a clearer manner, it could well turn out that he was right about that! At least for the portion of the sentence that states “no one special”. And then he assumes that the supposed revelations of Mr Gyurme spawned doubts and confusion among the world sangha.

Mr Bomjon should learn that his own actions speak louder than any words he uses, even louder than the words he abuses like ‘dharma’ and ‘guru’. Mr Bomjon shouldn’t look for a scapegoat in Mr Gyurme for Mr Bomjon himself failed everyone around, not Mr Gyurme, and Mr Bomjon subverted the trust and respect people gave him. Mr Bomjon was this young man showing the promise of a future living example of renunciation for the benefit of ‘ALL’ sentient beings unfolding. Instead of blaming others he should take responsibility. None of the people from around the world observing him were shocked by what Mr Gyurme did but all are shocked by his very behavior, that of a young boy turned angry, revengeful, authoritarian and irrational.

Then Guru spoke for the first time at length, and talked to villagers and devotees about the attainment that is Maha Sambodhi and the omniscient wisdom of Bodhi Marga darshan Maitri Dharma. And so the world began to understand that a new era had dawned. Feeling defeated, Sonam Gyurme Bal Tamang went to Guru’s childhood home in Ratanpur and plied family members with false rumours and greedy enticements. He managed to make them angry and resentful, causing a complete break between Guru and family by the year 2011.

– “Then Guru spoke for the first time at length, and talked to villagers and devotees about the attainment that is Maha Sambodhi and the omniscient wisdom of Bodhi Marga darshan Maitri Dharma.” We wonder what is he really referring to here. What’s the attainment that is Maha Sambodhi? Same story all the time, Mr Bomjon has a perspective on truth, feels he has received some special authority, and always mentions the ‘world’, the world knows, the world was told, and blablablah. But even through his own website he hasn’t said anything that can be intelligently understood. He has only demonstrated whims.

– Mr Bomjon shouldn’t blame on Mr Gyurme his own disastrous relationship with his family. Again Mr Gyurme is long gone and Mr Bomjon didn’t require anyone’s assistant to deteriorate his relationship with his family. How can someone with genuinely strong ties with his family have someone from outside destroy those. What kind of ties are those that are so easily damaged. Again it seems too easy to make Mr Gyurme guilty of everything.

The world being as yet unable and unwilling to contemplate BodhiMarga darshan MaitriyaDharma, we herewith make known this dark page from those early years as an example not only of the inexorable, essential nature of Dharma, but also of the irreversible consequence of self-annihilation for those deliberately opposing Dharma or Guru. Sonam Gyurme committed grave errors in leading followers away from dharma into greed and avarice, let alone deception and embezzlement. And in trying to suppress Maitri Dharma and conceal the True Guru he, as certain other individuals and agencies here and overseas, committed the ultimate sin against Dharma itself for which there is no forgiveness or recourse, but only extinction.

– And now another concept is thrown the concept of ‘self-annhilation’. There is no kindness and no half measures here either. From complete extinction of the plural souls, to ‘self-annihilation’. So Mr Gyurme is guilty of everything, but given the level of paranoid delusion we are dealing within Mr Bomjon, he wraps him up together with ‘certain other individuals and agencies here and overseas’, and comes back the ‘sin’ through the big gaping door of delusion, and then no forgiveness, and another new notion ‘extinction’.! Well! Tickle my tits until Tuesday if this is not a tit for a tat! Take a paracetamol Mr Bomjon, a good cup of tea and calm down.

Mr Bomjon do not shift the blame for your own errors. We will respect you and value your potential advice only if you set a good example yourself. No one is trying to obstruct something that has never been given. To be able to obstruct, you have to have that thing you want to obstruct in the first place. In its absence one cannot obstruct it. Your attitude so far has taught us one thing for sure, not to trust you or your nonexistent teachings. Where each promise you have made you yourself broke.

Boundless stupidity

The saga of scandals continues, how can it be otherwise with a fundamentally irresponsible management and this culture of blind devotion within the organization disregarding the elementary principles of honesty. Closest aid steels 11 000 USD.

Boundless stupidity

Limitless incompetence

After all the warnings on miss-management, diligence, honesty, responsibility the community around Mr Ramlal Bomjon continues to manifest new scandals in their midst. The latest in a string of events of which we only see the tip of the iceberg, is the theft of money by one of those about whom we kept warning all the way to Mr Ramlal Bomjon himself. His close executor of every order Mr Darshan Limbu whom he kept welcoming back around him, despite all the stern warnings issued by the president Kim, by Dawa, by so many others I would rather not name. Rather than avoiding scandals and cleaning up the highly compromised groupies around him, chaos and corruption were kept close at hand, the reason given was that Mr Ramlal Bomjon needed people close to the mafia in Nepal for his protection.

Is that not silly! Now they publish this information:

“Two former Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha assistants previously working closely with Guru have now left, and no longer serve as links to Guru’s Dharmic Centre. Ngima Dawa Tamang last year resigned his Committee position to serve elsewhere. Devotees wishing information re Puja, visits, pick-up or accommodation should send all queries directly to dharxxxxxx@xxxxx.com

Darshan Limbu (Foon Chook / Diviya Darshan) made a contract promising to work for BSDS Office for two years. Then making sangha disciples believe he had many serious problems, he took from the Office funds the equivalent of eleven-thousand US$, saying he was going to Kathmandu to send the money to his family. Since then however, he has disappeared; he has not returned to fulfill his work contract; nor has he contacted sangha, disciples or the Dharma Sangha Office. The Office however has received reports that Darshan Limbu has been approaching national and international sangha members as a Guru-disciple, sharing sangha photos and various persuasive stories to ask for money privately.

Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha Central Office herewith makes the Maitri Request that all sangha members, followers and devotees be on the alert for this kind of persons.”

That Darshan is the very same person involved in the detention and abuse of 2 women.

Conclusion

The saga of scandals continues, how can it be otherwise with a fundamentally irresponsible management and this culture of blind devotion within the organization disregarding the elementary principles of honesty. Without any special power of prediction, the future will be a self-repeating cycle where the same deeds and actions cause the same outcomes. No enlightenment required to come to that kind of conclusions.

Why is the name of Dawa mixed up with the name of Darshan? Are the two things related, if not why create more confusion? Probably because that’s the only thing that they are specialized in: “creating confusion”.

Witness account signs of cultism with Mr Ramlal Bomjon

Witness account first signs of cultism around Mr Ramlal Bomjon

Message from Michiel Hegener

I applaud the new content of the website. Out of curiosity I visited Halhoriya for 6 days in May 2011, partly because I had to be in India and Nepal anyway for my work as a journalist. I do not need any guru, but I thought that there might be an interesting story to write. So, I interviewed many people during that week. Marici was there as well and we met of course.

I saw no signs, or hardly any, that there was a cult in the making. In fact, I had a very nice and pleasant week with the jolly crowd gathered there.

Soon after my return I started having doubts about DS because of:

  • The naming-and-shaming-manner in which Khenpo was thrown out
  • his plan to have a painting made of him holding hands with the Buddha and Jesus while Jesus was holding hands with Mohammed. Given the cruel conquest of Christian lands by Muslims since the days of Mohammed, and the persecution world wide of Christians by Muslims, this painting idea was stupid in the least and in fact hugely insulting to Christ and his followers
  • the treatment of Marici who was accused of things which she did not do and was ostracized by DS in the autumn of 2011
  • the subsequent imprisonment of Marici during the first three months of 2012, about which she informed me soon after her release. There is no doubt that she was imprisoned: two members of the Sangha, whom I met in August 2012, told me how the Sangha had had a meeting in Halkhoriya with DS in attendance, during which they decided to release Marici and the other prisoner, Ana Maati (who I met from a distance in 2011).

 

Feel free to publish this mail!

Stalled negotiations

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151007044811/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/04/08/stalled-negotiations

by This website | Apr 08, 2015
The last exchange with the then president of BSDS, Kim who is no longer president of BSDS (according to that very email she sent), dates back to the 10th March 2015.

Stalled negotiations

The last exchange with the then president of BSDS, Kim who is no longer president of BSDS (according to that very email she sent), dates back to the 10th March 2015. In it, not a single word about the victims, not a word about the damage she and the organization has done to the victims and to all the devotees in general and to the very cause of compassion and kindness towards ALL sentient beings. Rather the same type of symptomatic denial, qualifying everything as ‘rumors’. And beyond that, a single focus on having this website closed. Why that? For continuing business as usual and for being able to continuously lie and abuse the devotees, who often with extremely modest standards of living, are financing with their donations the very organization that is betraying their hopes and aspirations?

It has to be clear that this website will be only closed AFTER steps are taken to repair the damage done to the victims. And of course after open transparent steps are taken!

Kim wanted me and Mrs Andrea Good to talk. I have never had any problems with talking to her, however Andrea Good locks herself up and refuses any dialogue. But it should be clear to everyone that what this website denounces, is not issues with just Mr X. or Mrs Y and Z. It is the systemic problems that are denounced, which are the root causes of all the scandals that have happened in the past, and may continue happening as long as there is no clear turn around from those practices of lying, deceiving, and cover ups. The individual involved may be replaced by others, and the problem will still be the same if the systemic causes are not addressed.

Big thanks for your support

We would like to thank all of you readers, devotees, former devotees, visitors, fellow brothers and sisters for your incredible courage and support. We thank also all those of you who expressed their disagreement with the way we denounce all those problems too. All your opinions count and should be respected. Remember that no one can tell you what to do, or impose on you anything that your own heart, conscience and will doesn’t agree with.

In this world where violence, crime, impunity reigns, morality, compassion and kindness stand as the greatest tool to provide for ourselves and every single living being the conditions to express our individual best full potential.

What to do next

This website will continue denouncing unethical conduct, all the way until an honourable resolution of the damage done to the victims has been reached. All the way until you visitors, readers, devotees, brothers and sisters are being treated with the respect and transparence you all deserve. More than any written word your visits, messages and interest shows your determination to reach a resolution.

You interest and support is the best proof of your care for those who have been hurt by the organization you supported. Even though the past cannot be erased, you can always manifest your compassion for each and every single soul that has been hurt, wounded or offended. It is the clearest possible demonstration that ethics are important, that the lawful compliance of Mr Ramlal Bomjon’s organization matters, and that each and every single living being matters.

Stay tuned for more.

Ivy Jugoa, aka Jyampa Lhaden, a dutch national from Surinam, an artist, and someone who likes to give interviews, advertise her future leader of the world, or maybe even worlds, Mr Ramlal Bomjon.

Director of the International Sangha

Another notorious member of the management group. A group almost exclusively composed by members whose probity, morality, ethics are being questioned here. Ivy Jugoa, aka Jyampa Lhaden, a dutch national from Surinam, an artist, and someone who likes to give interviews, advertise her future leader of the world, or maybe even worlds, Mr Ramlal Bomjon. I had a number of opportunities to talk with her over Skype. Back in 2013 she wanted to get a website for selling her paintings. She contacted me to try to get the on this website, but both Kim and I didn’t feel it would be appropriate to advertise her works on a website supposed to present ‘dharmic teachings’. Then Ivy started agitating some people from the community to open a european Sangha chapter. Decidely both Andrea and Ivy wanted their own branch office opened to shelter their glorious titles and ambitions.

Ivy goes around and gets her name and title on petition documents like this one: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/358/773/304/ , as “Ms. Jyampa Lhaden, Director of the International Sangha”. But what is exactly her responsibility, what are the rules of her engagement, what are her prerogatives? We could easily bet that no even she knows.

The best of all insights is the ones coming from just letting people express themselves with their own words. And Ivy doesn’t lack the amount of words, she has words for selling. She is a bit of a jolly go around, and brags loud and clear to everyone who listens to her, her precious opinions that have to be accepted as the absolute truth. This text below is a short clip where she justifies the detention of no less than two women, ordered by Mr Ramlal Bomjon, as something deserved.

In my own dealings with Ivy, when talking once about Ms Takacs detention, she started telling me how she would have liked to kick her ass. Later to explain her limitless devotion to Mr Ramlal Bomjon, she said she was ready to do anything for him, jump from a window, kill whatever. Then she added that this was her frame of mind before, but that now through the wisdom of Mr Ramlal Bomjon she had changed. The reality is that through any of her sentences all that she is showing is how she is a very unstable person, prone to a blind devotion that abstracts any sense of morality or ethics, all in the name of a cause that her own actions are totally betraying.

What are the lessons humanity is supposed to learn from people who use violence, verbal and physical, who condone the detention of adult women by their ‘guru’, involved in an organization supposed to promote compassion, but whose actions are harming the very meaning of that word?

For the part of the world that has a conscience, behaves morally and respects women, THERE CAN BE NO CIRCUMSTANCE UNDER WHICH DETAINING ILLEGALLY WOMEN IS ACCEPTABLE.

Andrea Good aka lovetruthjoy aka Jyampa Dolma, holds tight to her position of co-guru, super translator, chosen one, vice-ruler of the sangha. Why?

 

Boundless stubbornness and huge ego

Andrea Good aka lovetruthjoy aka Jyampa Dolma, holds tight to her position of co-guru, super translator, chosen one, vice-ruler of the sangha. Why? Just follow the money trail and you will understand. All her trips to Nepal have been financed by devotees because of the way she presents herself to the community, as chief inquisitor, mother superior and super moderator of the Google Groups, deciding who can say what, when and how. Establishing her own rules, with an ego bigger than the Everest, she is holding tight to all her positions to be able to continue receiving financial support, plane tickets, and most importantly for her, probably as she puts it herself: “being the co-star of a fantastic unfolding story”.

Andrea Good controls the website Maitreya.info, the YouTube countless channels, Facebook and Google + pages, the Google Groups, all this propaganda arsenal at the service of her own ego, of her own mental constructs of what has become like a sect which she is shaping herself, and controlling.

In her book, she describes how she keeps building dramas, chapter 24, the title of the chapter itself is “Drama” and the text says:

Her book: Reflections on Sambodhi Dharma Sangha

“As you remember, I [Andrea Good] felt very foolish after having made up a story in my mind about the Dorje and coming to believe it. Why had I [Andrea Good] deemed it necessary to see a miracle? Because I [Andrea Good] wished to support the drama that I [Andrea Good] had come to believe without ever questioning the reasons I [Andrea Good] had for believing it. I deserved to have my kata thrown at me [Andrea Good]! But it was not necessary, I had trapped myself [Andrea Good]. My ego [Andrea Good] wished to make myself [Andrea Good] the co-star of a fantastic unfolding story, and this desire was deterring me [Andrea Good] from seeing what was really happening which was actually far more beautiful than anything I [Andrea Good] could concoct. If only I [Andrea Good] could see it with clear and unimpeded vision!

Shakespeare said that the whole world is a stage and that we are all actors on this stage. In a sense, he is right. But there is also a warning about taking this statement to heart. If we allow ourselves to be continuously creating a drama, we will produce much suffering.”

Her involvement in the translations despite not being a native Nepali speaker, despite not even being an average Nepali speaker, or despite not even being a poor level Nepali speaker, has been a continuous clinging onto the position despite and against any remark she could receive from anyone. There was a time we tried to send her translations done by native Nepali monks from a renowned monastery, people with PhDs, in collaboration with professional translators and in collaboration with Pragya, a great guy, who was treated with a lot of disrespect by her while she used him to help her translate and take on all the credits for it.

There was an exchange of emails while we were trying to have her accept cooperation from people more qualified than she was. But she defended her sacred turf at all costs. This is a small excerpt from an email from Kim the then president of BSDS after attempting to make sense with her:

Email between Kim, myself and Andrea

Kim writes to me:

She is running around a circle , give me this kind of answer. Read her mail below.

Pragya just told me that Andy starting flooding his mail box with questions and fixing script. Now I know she does that so that she can tell me, yah I get help from Bhante Pragya, I m not doing it alone…. So much ego, but it is fine, Guruji is testing all of us.

I just only ring the bell at her, but I stop here and let her continues the show, but at least Semyon and her will be alert about what they are doing. One time she told me and Ivy when we met in Nepal that:”I am just like Guru, the difference is I eat and he doesn’t!”. Both Ivy and I cannot believe what we heard. Ok, no more gossip.

MM, K.

See below the screenshots of the full thread of communication on that topic, the actors in it are the President then of BSDS Kim, and Andrea Good, unchanged since the very first days she got attracted by Ramlal Bomjon.

On another occasion I was sitting with Pragya and we had mostly finished working on the translations made by different translators, the monk, a professional nepali translator and Pragya himself, when Andrea Good was messaging to get words translated by Pragya. We had a great laugh. She can’t really make a translation on her own, it’s locals like Rahul, Pragya, Kishore and a few others that help her, and she always brags and attracts the credit to herself. She even used to sign all the translations.

We wanted more than anything that there is a proper review process of the translations. Even the original text had sometimes words missing, or when it came from a voice recording it was at times difficult to transcribe. But she always shows herself as the most capable and maybe the only one apt to do it. Humility, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, are notions difficult for her even in English.

She is not the only problem, it’s a gathering of people who have turned off their conscience at the mercy of their own fanaticism, and are trying to shape everyone else to be like them. Instead of allowing for a participative emulation of the best in each and everyone, we get a group where the closest entourage of Mr Ramlal Bomjon emulates the worst possible behaviors, locked up in their mental spaces, incapable of cooperating or of questioning themselves and their own negative impact on the whole community. Instead of insight there is stubbornness and ego.

If this was just my way of seeing things with her, it would be not much relevant, but almost everyone I have been able to talk to and that knows her, has more or less the same experience of her. She never takes an extended hand for cooperation or even to discuss anything. The entire internet presence of what is supposed to be the organization of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, is run by her close minded convictions. She uses Semyon as to create in him also the same kind of fanaticism that she has, because she needs him.

Instead of trying to find a resolution with the victims that they have sown all around themselves, they are all camping on their positions, not ready to move the smallest finger towards reaching the state of peace and compassion that they are so vocal about, but that is totally absent from all their deeds.
