Confusion comes from lies

 

by This website | Feb 13, 2015

 

Lies get you into more lies, that get you into more lies and more problems…

 

When things are wrong they also appear wrong

The March 2014 the official newsletter of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha announces the ordination of a new monk baring the name Jyampa Ngami. The text goes and says:
“We are pleased to report the USA Sangha has been diligently working to develop a new Temple in the name of Maitriya Guru Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha. The Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha Temple opened in early February, 2014. Although located in the United States, The Temple is the sacred space for devotees from all parts of the world, who are always invited to visit, pray, chant and study Dharma.
The Temple houses a beautiful shrine adorned with a new Maitriya statue, carved in stone, along with pictures of His Holiness, and other sacred objects. The USA Chapter office is also being housed in the Temple along with monk living quarters, library, and a meditation room. The back of the Temple is a peaceful space for walking meditations, tea meditations, and quiet mindful moments underneath a large actual Bodhi tree.
We are currently meeting every Sunday at 2:00 PM to pray, chant and share the loving kindness of Guru. We would like to take this opportunity to give you a warm welcome to the Temple if you happen to be in the area. The Temple is located in Westminster, California. Please call Jampa Ngami if you would like to visit with us at (xxx) xxx-xx-xx. We would love to greet you. For those devotees who would like to volunteer their time and talents, we are always delighted to welcome you, and show you projects we are working on at the moment. Please call Jampa Ngami and he will arrange for your stay at the Temple.”

Who is Jyampa Ngami

It’s someone who presented himself as Dr. William J. Moore, Ph.D., MSW, LADC, CCS Clinical Director, and asked to become a monk for Ramlal Bomjon. This doctor of psychology will serve the purpose of establishing an online diagnosis to discredit Ms Takacs, quoted in emails sent by Mrs Kim Nguyen (president of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha). Instead of ever organizing an internal process within the organization to question the criminal act of the detention of people by the entourage of Ramlal Bomjon, the top management of BSDS, with Kim Nguyen as president, Andrea Good as ‘moderator of her own blogs, namely the google groups of deception’, organizes the orchestrated slander and defamation of Ms Takacs. His online diagnosis is sent to Kishore Sherchand a Nepali realtor in the USA, who writes self-inspired articles about Ramlal Bomjon on Nepali blogs and media. The intent, showing that what Ms Takacs writes on her blogs is not reliable, calling into the very integrity of the person who was the victim of an unlawful detention by Ramlal Bomjon. The full text of the emails will be later provided.

Question: How was he accepted by Ramlal Bomjon?
Answer: A photo of Dr Moore was presented to Ramlal Bomjon and he accepted him. They never met, no training or teaching was ever provided to the wannabe monk. No substance ever existed in any of the steps of that process.

Question: How was Dr Moore ordained?
Answer: By staging a fake ordination ceremony in the USA, not a single ordained monk was present at the ceremony. Only two persons connected to Ramlal Bomjon were present at the ceremony, Kim Nguyen and Dawa Ngima Tamang. Neiter Kim nor Dawa are monks. The rest are Vietnamese family and friends of Kim Nguyen, and the monk itself. See below photos of the ceremony. The house belong to Kim Nguyen, and let us translate what is written in this newsletter: “The temple houses a beautiful shrine adorned with a ‘New Maitriya’ statue, carved in stone’, along with pictures of His Holiness and other sacred objects’. The house is a plain ordinary house, with an ordinary cheap chinese collection of buddha statues, a stone statue turned backward (ok that must be the My Trayer statue, it’s ashamed to look at us it seems), a small cardboard calendar on a short tallboy and another calendar hanging on the wall.

Monk ordination ceremony The 'Temple' and 'Shrine' The outside of the 'Temple'

Question: What happens with this monk?
Answer: Not long after the ordination, and installation of the fake monk, in the fake temple, the fake monk is getting tired of being alone in the fake temple, tired of wearing the robe (poor guy he never received the nice blue monk dress designed by Guru-stylist Ramlal Bomjon. He is even beginning to threaten Kim Nguyen. Sending menacing sms’s to her. Kim doesn’t know what to do with him any more. A fake monk, in a fake temple, making ‘real’ threats, that’s no good! So after weeks of cat and mouse game between the monk and Kim where the monk would not answer at the phone calls, not open the door of the fake temple, keep asking for money, walk around the town in civilian ordinary clothes, Kim manages to get rid of him, sending him to a Vietnamese Buddhist temple.

The organization BSDS in the USA

An organization officially registered in the USA exists. What is flimsy with it is that it doesn’t have any real activity other than collecting the money of all the international donations. Before moneys were also collected in Japan by Andrea Good, but the organization quickly realized that Mrs Good is not so good when it comes to dealing with money. Andrea even told once Kim that taking a bit of money from the donations is OK, as long as no one knows about it. So donations are centrally collected by the Kim, and what else? Well not much really, there was a fair organized once in San Francisco, to which they participated, with a stand and banner, see photo.
 The California Fair
A few names are registered with this organization, as an organization in the USA requires that you have at least a President, a Treasurer and a Secretary. So some local friends devotees are named at those positions. Two of them only in reality a certain Mark V. M. and Smitha, yet Kim sends emails informing of the existance of 6 main members of Board of Directors. In which I am named as one of them, even though I was never either asked to accept such a function, nor ever received any information about the role of the board or my role within it. The two persons Mark V. and Smitha, almost never meet, even for the mandatory meetings a this fictitious board.
Here is the extract of the email sent by Kim Nguyen to Mr Kishore to explain the structure of the organization:

“Dear Kishore,

This is Kim. We have 6 main members from Board Director, 5 from California and 1 from France( our webmaster, Ivan). We also have a lot of members, both in US and outside of US too. I am out of town, in Florida. When i come back next week, I will fw you the board names, if you like to know. We are an approved 501(c)3 non profit organization. So, all donation are 100% tax exempt.

Maitri Mangalam,

K.”

In may 2014, that very tax exemption was revoked by the American IRS. (check this link: http://orghunter.com/organization/453932891 ), I even informed myself Kim about it, that was in December 2014. Mark and Smitha not even being reachable Kim Nguyen is filling the vacancy with her own daughter. (Where are all the other 4 missing directors?) Maybe that email was not so accurate. Can we call this a lie? Or maybe I am just trying to create some confusion? Where does the confusion come from, each and everyone of those actors should ask themselves, as I am asking myself. At least I try to highlight the source, the causes, and the possibilities for restoring truth and accountability.
In the meantime Kim has been collecting in emergency ‘receipts’ from Nepal of expenditures. Receipts from Nepal in 2015 for the past years? The ink must be very fresh on those receipts. I hope they are true receipts.
“We have a lot of members”, well let’s examine the word member; member implies membership, membership is the choice one makes to join, subscribe, or belong to ‘something’. BSDS USA, and BSDS Nepal, have no membership programs, no membership processes, no members list, no members that declared themselves members. Sometimes it’s not a bad idea to call a cat: “A cat!”.
Wait a second. If no real board of directors, if no real monk, if no real temple, if no real organization, we wonder where does the confusion come from?

Questions from devotees

Questions from devotees

 

by This website | Feb 09, 2015

 

We are receiving questions from devotees addressed to Ramlal Bomjon.

 

His devotees wondering

  1. When Guruji has the most powerful Bhaitri mantra, and prayers calling upon many wrathful divinities that are there to subjugate demons, why would he be unable to protect the pregnancies of Guru Amma from supposed witchcraft against her? – Jesus casted demons out of people and healed anyone from any disease, even from being lamed or blind their whole life through.
  2. If Guruji can receive messages from his divinities, representing directly Maitriya on the earth, why does he need to often inquire by phone about the deeds and motivations of his followers, in fear of conspiracy, of bad motives, of corruption, asking one about the other?
  3. We heard of numerous laws suits against Guruji, what is the validity of those? Why doesn’t he communicate openly about it?
  4. Why does Guruji hide the truth about himself and the actions of his entourage to the wider public. It seems like there is two faces to his speeches, one oral, and the other of controversial actions. He seems to preach one thing, but practices something very different. Is there a reason to this duality?
  5. Guruji, you speak of non-violence in most of your speeches yet it became known that you used violence yourself on a few people, no matter what the justification. Is this not a contradiction? You also say in your teaching: “Never discriminate on the basis of name, appearance, complexion, class, belief, community, power, position, or qualification…” Yet you practice discrimination between your own devotees; some have been banned, others are in positions of favor, to some you are kind while others are expelled in rather violent ways. Is this not a contradiction too?

As it has been nearly impossible for his devotees to ask direct questions to him, we will regularly publish the questions they haven’t been able to send directly to him and receive answers to them.

Maitreya.info statement

by This personal website. | Feb 13, 2015
Commenting the statement of the website run by Mr Semyon.
As the maitreya.info website states it: “The dharma-sangha.com website is no longer representing officially Bodhi Shravan Dharma Sangha. The dharma-sangha.com site is a personal website. We strongly advise our readers to be careful with its content – it is not proper and is meant to create confusion. Soon a new website officially representing the Sanghas around the world will be launched.”
Let me decrypt this again, dharma-sangha.com already informed everyone on the 31st of Januara that it no longer represents that organization, we are the 13th of February, propaganda master Semyon, is not that good at reading information, please bare with him. Give him time… Dharma-sangha.com is a personal website, yes that is entirely true. Pretty much the only true part of that communique. Now ‘we strongly advise our readers’, good on you, very precious advice, “be careful with its content”, yes readers be careful, text and images are dangerous particularly when they are pointing at problems! “It is not proper”, no? what is proper is propaganda, lies, misrepresenting the reality, the organization, is that what is proper? In English-russian “Niet Good, Comrade”.

But the funniest part is that to the pile of lies and propaganda they have accumulated over the years, their answer to it is:

Yet another website!

I mean fantastic, wow! What a great solution! Please do not even try to re-examine yourselves, and your lies, but just create even more websites. Who knows, if there are enough websites, maybe then the readership will have more chances of not being confused.

 Welcome to the mother of all confusion!

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 –
Added At: 2012-03-22 12:08 AM
Last Updated At: 2012-03-22 12:08 AM
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.
