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.

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.

The tragic death of the white horse of Ramlal Bomjon

The tragic death of the white horse of Ramlal Bomjon

by This website | Feb 16, 2015
It is an event that I have witnessed with my own eyes, the kind of event you’d wish never to have seen. It’s the account of the tragic death of the white horse of Ramlal Bomjon.

Saved to die

It is an event that I have witnessed with my own eyes, the kind of event you’d wish never to have seen. It’s the account about the tragic death of the white horse of Ramlal. Somewhere in august-september 2013, many preparations were on-going for moving Ramlal and the monks to a new site. Things were organized in a sort of half secrecy typical with most of the people surrounding Ramlal, which is to say: “It’s a secret, I can’t tell you, but I will tell you anyway just don’t tell anyone”. That’s how most pseudo-secrets really quickly circulate and in the end most people know about those secrets. The secret then was the organization of a helicopter trip to Sindhupalchowk, and all the preparations of making a path through from the mountain top all the way down to where the next settlement would take place. There was a request to collect donations to pay for that helicopter trip, but up to the last moment there wasn’t enough money collected. When at the last moment, somehow money was found and the helicopter ride for him to Sindhupalchowk could take place.
I was in Katmandu then, and I receive a call from Dawa who asks me to go in town and buy some food for the horse of the Guru. As all the animals were to be ‘moved’ from the old site to this new site of Sindhupalchowk. I searched for dry rye knowing how they feed them with a lot of freshly cut herbs, that lack the minerals needed in a horse diet, bought carrots and apples, for both the monks and the horse and sheep and goat. And we are all preparing to get to Sindhupalchowk.
It’s a bit north-east of Katmandu, there is an easy part of the road until you reach a big river, cross its bridge and get on the foothill of a first mountain that requires a 4 wheels drive to cope with the tortuous terrain. Even with a 4 wheels drive, the journey is rough. We kept being thrown all over the place in the car, I hit my head against the top of the car quite a few times. And the drive is pretty long, as the road is alternating fairly correct parts with big holes, or a total washout part of the road. And then you start climbing and climbing, for what seems to take for ever. And we arrived around the time when darkness started to step in. We were almost at the top of the Badegaun hill or area, when the car had to stop. Ahead of us a truck seemed to block the road, a construction bulldozer was there on the side too. It looked like just a blocked road. When moments after that on our left side, I see a horse, attached with ropes around all his 4 legs, to poles planted in the ground. The horse had wounds all over the body. His eyes were so wounded he could almost not open them up to see through them. When I say the body and legs were covered in wounds, I literally mean this. My guess is that his bones were probably broken, which would explain why they tied him up to poles, to keep him upright standing. We ask what happened to the horse of the Guru? And we were told that the horse got wounded because he was in this truck and they had driven that same road we took with that truck and the horse behind.
What can I tell you? No wonder the horse got banged all over while in that truck. It’s not a transportation vehicle designed for carrying horse on tracks in the mountains. I couldn’t believe can be as stupid as this as to not even check along the way if something went wrong. But to get at the top of the mountain and just then realize they almost killed the horse. I am writing here ‘almost’, because at that part in the unfolding of events the horse was still alive. We discharged all the food and carrots we brought for the horse and gave it to a guy, who was by the horse and trying to make him drink a bit, or eat something. The horse of course, had probably no desire at all for any food. Food was the least of its worries.
The place is far from everything, it’s the night, I didn’t even think of taking a picture of that horse, I was so much under shock, I wanted to figure out how to get a veterinarian there. But as we couldn’t continue with the vehicles it was decided we go on foot from there to the house of Techu. We spent the night there, and the next when we reached the ‘Dharma Center’, we learned that the horse had died. Given the circumstances that’s probably only then that it was better for him.

Conclusion

It all started from an order of Ramlal Bomjon to get all the animals he is ‘saving’, to Sindhupalchowk. The end of the story is the tragic death of a beautiful horse, that was not properly taken care of. A horse meant to be ‘saved’, that encountered the most tragic possible death, due to the total inability of most of the people around Ramlal Bomjon, to recognize their own lack of skills, and to ask from people who have the skills to be helped. They are all in a frenzy to execute each and every wish of their leader, not even able to apprehend the magnitude of their limitations.
After that I heard some of the most stupid comments like the ‘horse was meditating before dying’. It was his karma. And the list of justifications that were given is endless. Not even worth relating. But never ever do I encounter within the people responsible for the most dramatic events around Ramlal, wonder what they themselves did wrong. What is their responsibility? All the energy of the group is deployed in covering up, finding super-natural reasons to plainly stupid actions.

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?

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?

A girl friend, pregnancies, miscarriages

A girl friend, pregnancies, miscarriages

 

by This Website | Feb 08, 2015

 

Ram’s girl friend, called Guru Ama by the devotees, her repeated pregnancies.

 

Useless secrecy

While the public at large is fed the propaganda of an ascetic into his 6 years of intense meditation without food or water, his close entourage organises a secret trip for him, from Nepal to India, in Darjeeling. The reason of this trip, meeting with a girl, his girl-friend, the girl devotees will later call Guru Ama.
At that time, Ram Bomjon doesn’t have any papers, ID or passport, so it is important that the whole mission be kept secret. Obviously not only for the reason that he doesn’t have any papers, but he is supposed to be in deep meditation for his tapasya (vows to benefit all sentient beings). They would cross the border at night, passing him as an ordinary Nepali, most Nepalis are not even checked at the border with India.
Only a few devotees are in the loop about the girl-friend, there is an embargo about revealing the existence of that girl-friend. You can easily imagine why. Remember, he is supposed to be 6 years in constant meditation. If the public was to learn that he is having some sex (wether tantric or kamasutric), a lot of the followers might be lost.
In the meantime the aparatus of propaganda tightly controlled by Andrea Good, and her ever devoted aid Semyon Shekhotsov, webmaster from Russia, feed the group of blind devotees with what they are expecting to hear, too eager to help the right cause for compassion, unity among all religions, an aspiration that every human thirsty for tolerance and fraternity wishes. All the activities require money. Money, money, money. Om Money Padme hmmmmm.
That same girl-friend will later move to Nepal, to serve Ram whereever he goes. In early 2014, an internal announcement informs a very small circle of devotees of her pregnancy. Then long radio silence. And about in october-november 2014, when the baby was actually expected to come to this world, we start learning that the girl went already through 3 miscarriages. By December she is again pregnant.
Ram tells some of his devotees that he needs to protect her against witchcraft. Some dark forces being for him at the source of the miscarriages. Yet at no point, is he considering that after 3 miscarriages, the best protection she could get would be proper medical care first. She is kept to live under the harsh conditions in those montains and be provided only his ‘protection’ which she had all along the past miscarriages.
Why does an allegedly ‘enlightened’ being keep talking of witches, and with all his supposed powers, doesn’t even come forth openly in public to explain to his devotees the odidity of his actions? Why so many half baked secrets, when he presents himself as the Guru of Truth (Satya Guru)?
Why use propaganda instead of being completely open, and straight in his boots, in his actions, his mistakes, and his lack of basic judgement, which he seems to demonstrate so many times?

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.

Your money as donations

Your money as donations

by this website | Apr 13, 2015
While nobody is forcing anyone to make donations, how many years of the same tricks do you need to understand that there are some fundamental flaws in the entire management of this organization.

Your donations

The stated purpose of donations

“Donations support a wide range of causes: constructions, shelters, protection of the environment, food, transport, rents… It all is done through your kindness and generosity only.” – Very vague and broad statement which is officially written on their website.
Through Google groups, social media, website and the donation pump agents, the public is being served a multitude of causes to support throughout the years that have either never been fulfilled or have been totally wasted with the same result as if you were burning yourself the bank notes. It is probably the only actual visible evidence of the infinite compassion of this organization, which thrives at ridding you from any burden in your wallet.
Here is a list of the promises and so-called projects you were supposed to finance through your donations:
  1. The Halkhoriya Water-Supply Project – Dec 2011
  2. Kajopa, Lake and legalization of Halkhoriya forest as a Dharmic Forest Nov 2011
  3. Restoration of lake in Halkhoriya by Ramlal Bomjon request Nov 2011
  4. Building Kajopa in Halkhoriya Nov 2011
  5. Terthup Dharma Hall 2010
  6. Writing a book of teachings

What really happens with donations

Money is the tattva of this organization, the essence and engine of all its operations. If observed as a commercial entity, one must admit that only very few commercial companies manage to generate so much income in proportion to the goods they produce. Of all the announced reasons and projects to support, not a single one has been accomplished. So through times the stated purpose of the donations has been modified to reach as vague as possible a phrasing, and in the fervent hope that people will forget about how they were tricked into donating each time.
Here is where the money actually goes:
  1. Helicopter rides – 4 or 5 so far at 4 000 – 7000 USD each.
  2. Buying the 4 wheel drive for Ramlal Bomjon
  3. Repairing the badly driven and badly taken care of car
  4. Making ugly concrete constructions on sites where no construction permit was ever secured. Which in turn get later bulldozed by the authorities.
  5. Money leeks – its a physical property of money in Nepal it seems, where bribing, commissions, service fees, are more or less one and the same.
  6. Court cases
  7. Lawyers
  8. Food
  9. Construction materials
  10. Financing pseudo pujas
In 2012, the year when the detention of Ms Takacs occurred, and when the journalists were attacked while a big World Peace Puja was held in Halkhoriya, the international/USA section of the organization collected 49 875 USD. Or at least that is the amount declared by the USA branch. At the rate of the USD to NPR which went in that period between 87 NPR to 105 NPR for 1 USD. The value ranges between 4 339 125 NPR and 5 236 875 NPR. Add to this amount the unknown figure of the sums collected locally in Nepal.
With time Mr Ramlal Bomjon has developed a liking for helicopter rides. Regardless the trivial issue of wondering if there are enough funds for that, when he wants a ride, he just asks for a ride, and the donation pump is turned on, when it’s not enough, then his closest aids might just take a bank loan, and worry later of how to reimburse it.

Conclusion

While nobody is forcing anyone to make donations, how many years of the same tricks do you need to understand that there are some fundamental flaws in the entire management of this organization. The donations made are factually supporting this entire system of organizational miss-management. Thereby also supporting and contributing to the perception Mr Ramlal Bomjon has that he is above any legal consideration and above any accountability towards anyone.
While we cannot ask him directly about the real meaning of the words he uses in his speeches, which derive from an unknown language spoken by invisible entities which they call Maitri, if in the meantime we just replace that Maitri by ‘commercial marketing’ then everything starts making sense.
If some of the funds were used to buy a book of English for Nepali speakers to Mr Ramlal Bomjon, in all these years he might have been able to address the world he speaks to, in a language the world understands. That book is available for only 44.95 USD. With it Mr Ramlal Bomjon might have had the chance of learning even casually about ethics, principles and values that govern our societies.
