Unabridged text of meeting between Ramlal Bomjon & Nepali PM Koirala

A pseudo dialogue where nothing is said

It appears through this actual event fully recorded, what the actual both intellectual and spiritual capacity of Mr Ramlal Bomjon really is. He speaks like a four years old boy who has seen very little of schools, and would probably not even be able to spell the word education. His preoccupation is only to get what he wants, like a little boy. He doesn’t really know how to express himself even in his own native Nepali language, gives an absolutely interesting insight on his mindset, and shows that he probably never even wrote himself any of his speeches.

It seems clear why he needs donation money, among other things to finance the salaries of the Khenpos he hires, which are the most likely explanation of the apparent validity of ‘his’ teachings. Whenever captured on tape, on always wanders what is it he really understands, and why does he rarely takes part to any recorded sessions.

It also explains the crucial role played by Mrs Andrea Good, as the only translator used essentially to beautify his text in English and through the deceptive gloss she places over the translations make believe everyone the big farce that is being served to collect money from the easily gullible.

Prime Minister Koirala:

May there be utmost peace in our nation, it is Buddha’s-peace, non-violence and stability be here. Buddha’s as well with regards to harmony for democracy, this nation, especially for development, and taking the lead for development. With regards to that, I just want peace. May there be peace and stability, then only we will achieve these things. This Democratic Republic has become inclusive. This is all good achievement. Even for democracy equal opportunity for everyone has become an achievement. Now we are trapped in conflict. Even now the matter of conflict, terrifying people, coercion, are all against Buddhist religion. We are trying to displace that.

Here poor youths, ladies and young men amounting to 3.5 to 4 million in number are having to go abroad. Whereas nature has provided us with everything here. This huge water resource is our asset. All the raw material of the nation is taken away. We sell it for 1 Rupee. We are having to buy the same for 100 Rupees. May Nepal and Nepali be free from this. And now we are all determined to make investment.

But when peace is violated, after that the same movement, vandalizing, terror, coercion, if still existent, who will have to bear the loss, national will move towards poverty again. Therefore I just have one issue, how can Nepal and Nepali co-exist and live with happiness, prosperity and stability. There is huge terrorism, instability in the world and everybody is in the search of peace.

Now Buddha is the path, isn’t it peace and non-violence? Therefore we also want the same, I am also searching for the same. Now Nepal will issue its constitution in 3, 4 months. What I would ask you to do is to assure Nepali people, your mission, speech should target how to maintain and peace and stability to enable entire Nepali to live with happiness, peace and stability.

May the outbound 3 to 3.5 million youths return. By progressing here in Nepal using our natural resources we can provide employment to millions of people. We are in a position to provide employment for out comers. Nowadays we hear about the death of the poor people in Gulf countries every single day. By living in such a remote area, hot sand, doing such difficult work; at least it is not like that here. Hence may such an environment be created where all Nepali can live with happiness and prosperity.

 

Ramlal Bomjon:

If the government is able to be a little concerned about Dharma, having faith and belief in Dharma, a little trust on religion, we are there to spread peace. If Nepal government shows a little concern towards us, I don’t think it is undo-able. If asked why, it is because we can make people understand, convince people and accommodate everyone. People have faith in religion. Even if 5 people out of 100 have blind faith, we can bring the 95 to have faith.

In order to establish peace in Nepal we are making attempts for it. But due the cross-accusations made upon us, it is evident that you have to help and cooperate with us a little intensely. Even in the forest we are frustrated, cross-accusations are made upon us, let us not say it to you, but perhaps a little to the ground staff… The intellectuals are from the vicinity of the village, they have made the orders. Reality is, they should have helped and cooperated with regards to religion, but it has not happened.

Whenever we do anything, they ask us to go up. When we go up they ask to go down. We are lost in between. We who work have belief that we will get help and cooperation in the forest. You have expressed good things for a better national and deep sentiment for the people. Although am also seen as a commoner, being a citizen have become known in the world as a Guru and have reached that level in the form of Guru. How much of faith, belief, and trust you have on that is something which you have discretion upon. I have faith in religion and belief that all of you will improve.

We also have to keep in mind about disturbance in betterment if the capable has to face blind faith, and cross-accusations by a couple of people. Not even little positive thing about the nation has reached to the international community. I am also making attempts to establish a little bit of identity of the nation. I don’t know what you all think about this, I believe in you all. Having deep faith in you from within I strongly believe that we would be able to receive a forest. In order to do these things from my side, let us propose for the forest. I think that I can do something for the nation.

 

Gentleman:

I would like to tell couple of general things to the honorable Prime Minister about the time when 15 to 20 people were dying every day. When Guru entered Jungle for penance on May 15, 2005 after that along with stability of Nepal and in course of establishment of democracy and republic, the activities of Maoists also started getting calmed down.

Now in this environment the religious forest which is Halkhoriya, Guru is in that area. We had fenced the area of 600 Hectares by barbed wire. We did religious programs, and it was our area for temple and huts etc. All our religious activities were our programs. It was place of residence for our disciples of sangha and after the government demolished this structure, Guru was not allowed to enter there.

Unnecessary activity was done by using media and journalists. Later on when we entered Halkhoriya on June 10 appellate court had issued an interim order. Even during that time armed forest guards along with 700 police personnel came and tried to remove Guru from there. I was myself in Halkhoriya and Piluwa and told the next day that the police chased everyone but could not find Guru. This was told by the forest officials there.

Mr. Prime Minister there were two things that were seen there. The pond that is in Halkhoriya is used for fishery and lot of people come for fishing there. Since that is a national forest area, I think that even the staffs are not able to make a decision. And I feel like a crowd of smuggler of firewood and the ones who cut trees in that national forest area. They could not even pick a leaf of a tree during Guru’s stay there for 6 years and those people are making accusations against us in the administration of Bara, is what we have felt. We don’t have problem in other districts. For instance Guru stayed in Sindhupalchowk, Sindhuli, Sarlahi, Patharkot. We were not bothered by administration in any of these districts but Bara’s administration especially the forest officials chase Guru in the night time. They say that there is no order for Guru to stay here from high command, and Mr. Prime Minister when we ask if they don’t know about Guru residing there since 6 years they say they do know.

 

Prime Minister Koirala:

When forest mafia does so, land mafias would have already entered and they don’t believe in any god, religion.

 

Ramlal Bomjon:

We have to maintain the prestige of the nation, everyone should be together even the people having blind faith…. We have to adopt the path of peace not violence. May everybody improve, be able to be religious and conserve water beings. Somebody of our nation is PM, king, some of them well-established, and some in illusion. Whatever I have been doing is for the well-being of the world, not for my ego. You have to understand that if you are able to provide the forest, I can do the rest and other nations also want this to happen. National and international entities raise question about this. What can we say? Whatever is there is okay, fine, and we have no resentment is what we say. Our negative things should not reach out to other countries.

Boundless stupidity

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151007135217/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/05/20/boundless-stupidity

by This website | May 20, 2015
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”.

No Dharma and No Sangha

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151007054558/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/04/09/no-dharma-and-no-sangha

by This website | Apr 09, 2015
There can be no Dharma, where women or men are detained. There can be no Dharma that is imposed by force, manipulation or lies.

No Dharma, no Sangha

No Dharma

Dharma is not the production of one to one and a half A4 paper length of Buddhist text per year in a fairly unclear Nepali translated by an American that contain enough times the words guru, maitri, compassion, peace and other keywords. It is not a few sessions of blessings per year. Speeches and so-called teachings, alone without any exchange or explanations, is just a mere make-up or thin paint to make it look like Buddhist, or look like Dharma. Add to this the various layers of incompetence, lack of any merit, switched off consciences of the inner circle of groupies, it breaks apart all the very letters of the word dharma, and throws the meaning of the word to a giant pit of futility.

There can be no Dharma, where women or men are detained. There can be no Dharma that is imposed by force, manipulation or lies. A puja which is unfolding while someone is chained, journalists are being attacked, is not a puja, it’s just a deceiving spectacle which hides a cruel and tragic flip side.

Pretending that it didn’t happen is not Dharma. Disregarding the suffering of those victims is not Dharma.

No Sangha

A Sangha is not the count of Facebook likes, or of followers on Social Media. A Sangha is not the recitation of Maitri Mangalam added on comments online. A Sangha is not about pretending the existence of branches all over the world with no one any where that has the capacity and merit to transmit a Dharmic teaching. A local Nepali Sangha is not the appointments of political or influential people at the head of local committees which are operated without any review or verification process.

Monks that receive no training, no education, no teaching, are just merely individuals wearing the clothing of monks. When monks are not real monks, and we have a Sangha that is not really a Sangha, a teacher that doesn’t really teach but rather keeps showing us what not to do, and where there is no Dharma, what do we have then? Let’s a cat a cat, it seems there is only ‘Facebook likes’, Followers of the virtual sphere of the Social Medias. Some call it just marketing, others might call it propaganda, some could even call it a business. Repeating the same sentences, and uttering more or less the same jargon doesn’t define any more this loose community as a Sangha.

What are the available definitions of a Sangha

On the website ‘Access to insight, the following definition is given:

In the suttas the word sangha (lit. “group, assembly”) is usually used in one of two ways: it refers either to the community of ordained monks and nuns (bhikkhu-sangha and bhikkhuni-sangha) or to the community of “noble ones” (ariya-sangha) — persons who have attained at least stream-entry, the first stage of Awakening. Link

The definition of ariya-sangha, according to the Mahanama Sutta:

“The Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples who have practiced well… who have practiced straight-forwardly… who have practiced methodically… who have practiced masterfully — in other words, the four types [of noble disciples] when taken as pairs, the eight when taken as individual types — they are the Sangha of the Blessed One’s disciples: worthy of gifts, worthy of hospitality, worthy of offerings, worthy of respect, the incomparable field of merit for the world.” – AN 11.12

Conclusion

Can anyone among the inner circle of management claim to have attained any of those levels of practice? Has there ever been anyone taught by Mr Ramlal Bomjon who has achieved any level of Awakening that might be qualified to teach others in his turn? In the last nine years, a profusion of promises for the writing of a book, for teachings, for learning a mysterious Maitri language, for building a big Therthup Hall Temple, for Maitreya Statues, for saving the Halkhoriya forest, so many unfulfilled promises, which have not taught anything to anyone.

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.

The co-guru Andrea Good, was agitating her devotees in Japan for a long time as how the next step would be the creation of a Japanese Sangha. She was pushing for that process for a while, when she started taking the steps for registering such an organization in Japan.

 

lovetruthjoy through her own writing

First a bit of context. The co-guru Andrea Good, was agitating her devotees in Japan for a long time as how the next step would be the creation of a Japanese Sangha. She was pushing for that process for a while, when she started taking the steps for registering such an organization in Japan. Pragya even went to Japan for that occasion and was handled like a servant by Madame the Co-guru. Andrea Good was trying to get money in any way shape or form she could. From Kim the up till now and maybe no longer President of BSDS she asked for money for the stay of Pragya, from her local devotees she was asking for money to pay for ‘her volunteer work’ as translator of one or two A4 pages of text, mostly done by actual Nepali (Rahul, Pragya etc…), but for which she needed the credit, and more than anything else the money. Om money padme hmmmm.

Throughout all those years I have been interacting (if we can call it like that) with Mrs  Andrea G., each and everyone of her actions visible and the less visible ones through others, were control, money, lies, self-delusion, and ego trips. She is actually convinced to do the right thing for a higher goal and that as such she is above everyone else. That is usually what is called fanaticism. That is the moment where your faith or what you believe takes over your conscience, moral principles and honesty.

You will see through her own words below in the full copy of her text, how she uses people’s devotion and her position to ask for money. She uses what was meant to be ‘volunteer work’ her donation to the Sangha as she calls it everywhere, to monetize her effort. When confronted with that, she just simply brushes the issue away and says, it ‘was my friends helping me’. Not for a split second does she even envisage that this is an abuse of her position, a deviated way of having others pay for your ‘donation of time’. But as time has shown, for all these years all that she has been doing is clinging to her position, ‘her powers’, perceived and imposed, and to her denials.

While trying to open a Sangha in Japan, she realizes having a legal organization imposes some restrictions in the way you deal with money, with legality, a structure and rules that need to be followed, you have to be able to finance such a structure, you have to have a real backing and support. Kim was insisting that things are done properly. Andrea didn’t like that. So the adventure of opening a Sangha had to be called off, and some explanations needed to be given to all those people waiting for that. This is in full the text Andrea Good writes to her closest following:

[buddhaboy] The situation in Japan

Dear Group,

I would like to give you an update of the situation over here and also make a request.  I’m sure all have been wondering exactly what became of our lives and the Japan Chapter after the return of Manu and Bhante. Our group was a little taken aback when it really came home that forming a Japanese chapter would mean submission of personal documentation both in Nepal and Japan and furthermore the complete formation of a “religious organization”, there being thousands in this country already with not a lot to boast about, but rather more to hide which means that such an organization would likely alienate more than it would welcome. It would also create the need for a lot of funding for office space.  For us, this simply did not “feel” right, nor given our present conditions, are we the most competent people to do this.  So, we decided to form a chapter of BSDS in the heart and to meet together and pick through Japanese translations and learn how to chant Maha Pranidhan. I think the majority of this group will understand our feelings, although this should not be taken in any way to be a separation, because it certainly isn’t.  So we have devoted our body, speech and mind to the sake of all sentient beings, and recognize that Guruji is giving us guidance through the heart.  We are also actively promoting Guruji’s cause among friends and relatives and online in Japan.

I have been struggling for some time also to pay my bills, and Sister Kidwen was extremely supportive, by paying most of Manu and Bhante’s expenses.  I am so grateful for this. My difficulties were somewhat exacerbated by several coinciding problems, the first, you all know occurred with the earthquake, tidal waves, and nuclear situation in Japan, which made most businesses except grocery stores suffer if not stop completely.  My own friends and customers were intimidated by the present situation.  Many came to the shop to discuss their problems and have tea (and I was very grateful for their company) and yet few were inclined to buy anything.  I also tended to retreat because I felt the need to concentrate on translating the Maha Pranidhan, so sometimes I simply hermitized 😉 for a few hours a day, assuming I would get into the swing of business again later.  Things continued in this way when my husband went to hospital where he remains.  I need to commute daily to take care of two apartments and make sure my children on both sides are fed.  Of course I am happy now because I enjoy much better relations with my family, and even feel eventually I will be able to leave this apartment to my increasingly independent son and return to care for my younger daughter and husband.  My husband was able to get leave over the past two days which were national holidays and all four of us were able to be together.  Although now I am twice as busy…and thanks to the help of the shop people who have gently led me back into being a full-fledged aromatherapist for the sake of the shop and my family, things are looking better.  So there are bright sides, and also realities that need to be faced.  One, I am two months behind on my family bills ($3,000).  The extra money that remained in Nepal is there for two purposes, some of that money ($1000) is being reserved to pay for Solar Energy once a decision is made by BSDS, and the remaining ($300) is to pay for extra expenses incurred by Dawa and or Marici who are spending so much time and energy to provide information and guidance to our group.

Given the situation, my husband’s continued hospitalization, and the needs of my family, I have decided not to attend Maha Darshan, but will probably revisit Nepal at a later time. Dawa has been praying very hard for us, my husband’s recovery and in the hope that one day my whole family wishes to go to Nepal with me. That would be wonderful. I certainly believe that this will soon be the case.

So I hope you will forgive me for reaching out to the group again for some support to help my family get back on its feet. I hope that we have been useful in providing the closest translations possible (thanks greatly to Rahul – I hope I will be able to send him something nice, even though he helps only with the sincere wish to understand Guruji.) The translations will continue beyond their publishing for Maha Pranidhan, and indeed beyond all publishing as I’m sure things will just keep popping up!  And, as always, I like to give in return to those who have been kindly helping out.  I still have just a few blessed strings left, but quite a few “The World in One Heart” (chants of the heart sutra from around the world) CDs produced by Imee Ooi, and also the Om Namo Guru Buddha Gyani CDs, so please feel free to ask for them, otherwise I will send you one of each CD, as I also have some stamps left as well to pay for the postage. Since my own paypal can no longer be used to send money to Japan, with kind permission from Sister Kidwen, she will gather any funds sent to me  via her paypal account (kim……@…….and she can forward them

once she returns from Maha Darshan

 

 via the banks to my account in Japan, so please send me your name and address and a memo of the amount via email so I can send you CDs and a string if they are still left over.  Mark the purpose as for World Peace Prayers translation.  

Thank you very much.  Sarva Mangalam Astu.

Maitri,

LTJ D (Andrea Good) 

 

There is nothing to teach others when such a culture of dishonesty, abusive exercise of positions that were meant to be volunteer contribution.

There is no valuable moral stand to show when no one in those management positions has the courage to stop the abuses, when these people are telling everyone what to do and how they explain away crimes like unlawful detention, the confiscation of personal belongings from the women they detained, and ask from people things that they themselves cannot do.

 

lovetruthjoy a strange pseudonym

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151017225003/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/03/21/lovetruthjoy-a-strange-pseudonym

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.

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?
