Ramlal Bomjon aides keep messing up

No need to worship anyone or anything, what really matters is our own path. Organizations are made out of people, within the multitude some apples are rotten. It is only but sad an entire organization supposed to help humans on their path, is producing more rotten apples than virtuous fruits.

Mr Ramlal Bomjon’s aides keep messing up

Interpreting the announcement

The last announcement (link) talks about Dawa’s resignation from last year, which is incorrect, his resignation was given the 17th of January this year, see snapshot of the actual email sent by Dawa. That very email mentions the plans of placing Darshan in a position of responsibility. Yet just prior to that communication open and official emails were sent to the Office of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, addressed directly to him, warning him about the danger and the discredit that people like Darshan and others he is still employing around himself cause to the organization.

Darshan was caught by Mr Ramlal Bomjon in the possession of drugs, despite all these warnings, despite finding drugs, Mr Ramlal Bomjon persisted on relying on dishonest aides, and continues to do so. Donations coming from people who are probably for the majority modest contributors, has been wasted time and time again. Rivalry in his committees, the come and goes incompetent hirings, the lack of any process and the absence of qualified honest people around him, has let to each and every one of the scandals produced in that organization.

Dawa Resigns
A bit corrected to make it more readable: “Dearest Kim didi Maitriya mangalam. I just want to make sure to you from now guru may just talk to tom dorje. Because I am out from active member of bsds techu and me now in my post is Mr Kewal Lama and techu’s post is one of the monks may be. may be Darshan we don’t know. So please do nothing i am all ways there same position. I am too busy with my own work to take care of the family and the orphanage so i cannot give too much time, so for that reason I give resignation on the 17th of January 2015 during a dharma meeting and guru accepts. So i am out now I am just devotee. And that day his guru jiu have announced the puja will be from march 22nd to 29th 2015 in same place there in sindhupalchowk maitriya center. warm maitria mangalam.

People are in positions without any checks and balances. People in positions have no or little competence and a highly developed combination of ego and fanaticism. The previous announcement promised aid or relief for 3000 families. The money and the aid was squandered and the official number they release is 600 families were helped. Far cry from the announcement, like usually. Pompous goals, ridiculous achievements in the end. The worst is they never ever have any acknowledgement for their shortcomings. For all the promises made, silence is the only tool they apply to cover up the mess. In the meantime expecting people keep sending their money, as that’s all that really matters.

Conclusion

No need to worship anyone or anything, what really matters is our own path. Organizations are made out of people, within the multitude some apples are rotten. It is only but sad an entire organization supposed to help humans on their path, is producing more rotten apples than virtuous fruits.

A quote from Kalu Rinpoche:

“My dear friends
If you want to practice dharma in right way then
Go in wrong way
Believe less
And don’t worship anyone or anything
Look into different example with your wisdom to help others
Practice more
Live simple and be kind
Love and care from your
– kalu Rimpoche”

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”.

Slander against Ms Takacs

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.

All the horses are now dead

All the horses are now dead

by This website | Apr 19, 2015
Wasted lives of innocent animals, wasted donations coming from people who sometimes have almost nothing, wasted trust and respect from his own devotees and from the world who looked at him with hope.

All horses are now dead

5 horses bought with donation money are all dead

When negligence is associated to the authoritarian rule of an abusive self-deluded pseudo religious leader the entire environment around him suffers the worst possible outcomes. In the beginning legends were created by the propaganda apparatus around Mr Ramlal Bomjon presenting the horse as it arrived on its own to be near this miraculous guru. Yet the reality is that donation moneys were used to buy all of those horses. The total sums spent to buy successively those 5 horses reached 2 700 000 Nepali rupees, that is about 25 000 euros, or 27 000 USD.

A story of improper care and neglect

Despite raising all the alarms, bringing to the attention of all the people involved the necessities of a proper care for the animals under their possession, one after the other all the horses met terrible deaths. Not shielded or protected properly from the wild predators of this surrounding, fed improperly with food ill adapted to the physiological needs of those horses, their destiny was sealed from the moment they were acquired.
The saddest in this is that their acquisition was organized on the orders/requests of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, and that no one around him has neither the knowledge nor the capacity to properly care for them.

Conclusion

Wasted lives of innocent animals, wasted donations coming from people who sometimes have almost nothing, wasted trust and respect from his own devotees and from the world who looked at him with hope.
The Dalai Lama wrote today: “Do not limit yourself to words; set your students an example. Then they will remember what you tell them better.”.
We ask the Dalai, what to do your Holiness when the teacher doesn’t set an example and behaves in ways that are damaging for him and his followers?

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.
