‘Sangha’ members from the ‘heart’

The actual deeds of those members with a part-time ‘heart’

Semyon Shekhovtsov

Semyon Shekhovtsov

That is the webmaster and self-appointed judge and jury and controller of the web propaganda. That’s a person that actually never accepted to even talk directly with ‘fellow sangha members’ as he calls them, instead he uses emails or chat to communicate short instructions. Never any kind words, inquiry about one’s health or any other exchanges than what he needs from you. But, he is quicker than thunder to publish any attack against people he and his master Andrea Good feel should be outcast, for instance, Pragya, Khempo Sonam, Dawa, Marici, against whom he would immediately publish accusatory articles on the so-called ‘official’ website of Mr Ramlal Bomjon. He is also the guy who published to the amazement of everyone comments supporting Vladimir Putin. It took a strong reaction coming from the Vietnamese born president Kim Huyen Nguyen to have the comments removed. So this is the guy that never actually behaved in a compassionate, brotherly way towards others, and he tells others and explains to them the ‘spiritual doctrine for Dharma, Marga, Mukti, and Moksha’. He says that this website spreads ‘elaborate lies mixed with truth’, not even clarifying what is truth and what he qualifies as the lies. It is worth underlining that every single fact presented in this website comes from either the victims themselves AND/OR from direct witnesses to the events mentioned here that corroborate the statements of the victims. When the numerous source tell the same thing, then we evaluate the information as sufficiently reliable to publish it here. Yet not all the information that we have received has been published for part of it involves people that are still in danger and in fear of reprisal should they be linked as the source of the information. The facts presented already are alone grave enough to make it absolutely necessary for the world to be informed about the dangers of a cult that has very little respect for fellow human beings, whether they are villagers-neighbors, journalists from the local or international press, young enthusiastic first-time visitors or former devotees, or even animals taken under the so-called ‘protection’ of Mr Ramlal Bomjon. Before going public every possible attempt was made to try to correct in a truly compassionate way the harm done to so many people who genuinely wanted to contribute to the development of a ‘truly’ compassionate and caring community, inclusive of EVERY single sentient being. These attempts were met with more new scandals and outrageous deeds all the way to the point that any sincere and truly caring member of that community was left with no other choice than to separate themselves from the community to at least avoid being instrumental in even indirectly helping the continued pattern of harm to others.

Joan Stanley-Baker

Joan Stanley Baker

What can appear at first glance as a sympathetic old lady albeit harassing, self-centered, self-glorifying and in constant need of imposing to others her biased views. Her degree in Art history is far from qualifying her as an expert in Buddhism, something almost everyone has noticed clearly when reading the texts she writes with a tremendous emphasis and lyricism. She sells herself all around the place as the ‘discoverer’ of the next Buddha-Maitreya, and serves a very down to earth goal, that of bringing as many ‘wealthy’ Chinese guru-seeking potential donors to the group. She is totally blind to the efforts that her presence in Sindhupalchowk require in terms of preparations for her visits. Young almost kids, and youngsters were used as hard labor to make the path to reach the remote location of the so-called ‘Maitri-center’. She behaves a bit like a local star expecting everyone to be at her disposal, to be able to disturb Mr Ramlal Bomjon whenever she wants, to tell others how things should be done. She engages in regular rivalries with Andrea Good, and the two of them, both act as some sort of Mother Superiors and self-proclaimed co-gurus towards the rest of the pretty heterogeneous dislocated community of hard-core fanatics.

Ivy Jugooa – aka Jyampa Lhaden

Ivy Jugooa

That’s the so proud ‘director’ of the international ‘sangha’ whatever that means. That’s the woman who tells during a recorded Skype call that she would be ready to jump from a window or even kill for Mr Ramlal Bomjon if that was asked from her. She is also the one calling the victims of illegal detention ‘witches’ who deserved everything that was done to them. That person was also asking all around the place that we put her paintings on the websites of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, officially to donate the proceeds of sales of her pretty dubious art for the organization of Mr Ramlal Bomjon. When you talk with her every other sentence she makes is something that would raise the hair on the body of any normal healthy human being. Her devotion is mixed with a form of violent fanaticism that makes her totally disqualified to have any active role in any other normal community. The very fact that she is maintained together with all the other scandalous members as the core of that creed is in it-self characterizing the type of creed this group has turned into.

Michael Leon – aka Jyampa Dorje

Mike Leon

That guy is supposed to be a monk. Like all the other ‘monks’ of Mr Ramlal Bomjon he never undertook any proper training or education, he has been given the disguise of a monk, the robe and taught the jargon of hollow Sanskrit words repeated ad vitam eternam, but in practice when he visited California to officially ‘help’ the Vietnamese born president Kim Huyen Nguyen, he would rather spend his time playing video games and slot machines, than performing any actual ‘spiritual’ or ‘helping’ deeds. He then left to work to become the star of the caravan of American born so-called guru Ganga Nath to tour a show called “The seeds of Loving Kindness” where they were selling to the public the story of Mike Leon the ‘monk’ of Mr Ramlal Bomjon to gullible Americans. In a later article I will publish the emails of the Vietnamese president Kim, complaining about his attitude and behavior, complaining that he is wearing jeans instead of wearing the ‘monk’ disguise. So in effect that guy is at best used to make some propaganda and make the rest of the crowd believe there are actual monks that have been trained by Mr Ramlal Bomjon.

Tomas Henryk Tarnawsky – aka Tom Dorje – aka Jyampa Kalshang Jinpa – aka Guru Marga Guru

Tomas Henryk Tarnawsky

What a series of titles and names, a bit like his master Mr Ramlal Bomjon he loves titles and feeling self-important. If that was the only reproach one could have against him, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. But unfortunately that’s far from being the case. This is one of the key actors involved in several of the biggest scandals of violence. This is the guy caught on camera by 5 or 6 different journalists running to attack them and to violently steal their still and video cameras. This is the guy about whom 3 different victims give horrible details of violence. He is one of the main executioners of the violence. He is the right hand of Mr Ramlal Bomjon and executes blindly anything the latter asks. So when a guy like that writes: “I continued searching for life inspiration to open myself to true love and to learn truly to love others”, one should be totally cautious in interpreting that strange desire to ‘love others’ in the light of the violence that he has manifested at so many occasions. He is a talented linguist, judging by the quality of the English used there, or the text might have been redacted by an English speaker, but the rest of his propaganda writings are as hollow as an advertising about bubble gum. He is very much like Andrea Good and Joan Stanley Baker over-selling himself as a quasi-guru, who achieved not eating for 16 days. Who on earth cares whether you eat or not if it is resulting in being a violent person harming others, whether they are journalists, women, or any one else for a matter of fact! His is selling the propaganda that Mr Ramlal Bomjon is “a most kind and humble human being”. Never heard of humble human beings requiring from others to bow to them, decorating themselves with a bunch of pompous titles, and having kids and others do for you all possible chores, while he himself never actually moves even his little finger to help someone personally and directly. He needs the money and hard labor of others to make ‘kind’ donations to first a huge number of people in announcements that ends up not even reach a third of what was announced. So contrary to the assertion of Mr Tarnawsky, no one has any wishes or desires to proclaim false-guru with the intention of getting rid of Mr Ramlal Bomjon. The only single minded intention that underlines all the efforts of this website is to make sure that the public is at least warned about the things going on in and around the organization of Mr Bomjon. When Mr Tarnawsky says that it was without ‘consulting’ anyone and according to false ‘rumors’ that things were disclosed through this website, one can really tell that it is a big lie, the “consultation and discussion” was there all along, for many years the president was almost nothing else but discussing all those topics, and with quite a few other people that those scandals – and we are not talking here about rumors, but about actual events, facts shared in secrecy by the president herself with him, by the victims, by direct witnesses to the events, by the testimony of the journalists involved in the violence Mr Tarnawsky exercised against them, by devotees that were there and didn’t know what to make out of what they saw with their own eyes and through what he saw himself while he was there. If it was only from a single testimonial of someone not really sure about what he saw, one could qualify this as ‘hear-say’. The problem is that it has been corroborated by more than just a single source. The horrible part of this is that those acts of violence have been done in total impunity, in front of many witnesses. The press was involved in quite a number of those scandals, Mr Ramlal Bomjon himself was filmed explaining what happened. Explaining the ludicrous scheme of even thinking about locking up villagers, even if they are drunk. Every single event that involved violence, has been done because of this feeling of ‘authority’ that is reinforced between a crowd of fanatical worshipers and the man who imposes on everyone that he is the ‘guru’ and ‘no-one’ should disturb him.

Throughout the ages, the arhants who went to fullfil their vows (tapasya), didn’t require to violently impose their missions, they all did find the right places of seclusion. The incapacity of Mr Bomjon to even have a normal explanation and show his compassion towards those that ‘seemingly’ disturb him, tells more about the scope and reach of his compassion than about any form of inherent ‘authority’. He doesn’t need an pseudo-army of pseudo-monks to protect him. He just needs to be compassionate for real!

Even without relying on any other witnesses just relying on Mr Bomjon explaining himself to the police when interrogated what happened, that alone is sufficient for any honest and decent person to refuse to be an accessory in any way shape or form to the acts of violence hence crimes committed in the name of a ‘supposed or perceived authority” by Mr Ramlal Bomjon to justify the way he treats other human beings or the orders he gives that result in terrible outcomes for the animals he is supposed to protect. So when Mr Tarnawsky would take concrete steps to repair the harm he has caused, then and only then, anything that Mr Tarnawsky writes could have any value. That guy never apologized to anyone he has hurt. One can really only question the morality of a person that actively participates in the detention of other human beings.

If there had been a genuine pursuit of compassion towards all living beings, there would have never been any detentions, never been any fights with villagers, never been any need to attack journalists and steal their equipment, if Mr Ramlal Bomjon had truly achieved enlightenment he would have never needed to hide the truth about his sexual activities, to hide the truth about the abortions, about the birth of his son. If he had really fulfilled his penance he wouldn’t need to keep talking about ‘his authority’, he wouldn’t need violence to assert his positions. If truth was important there would have never been any need to forge a birth certificate. There wouldn’t been any needs to publish on his official site any defamation against anyone. If he achieved really enlightenment he wouldn’t need to make threats, he wouldn’t need to ask one devotee about the other, he wouldn’t need to hide that he didn’t write all of his speeches, he would be like the historical Buddha capable of explaining his doctrines intelligently and coherently, he would be an example of righteousness and compassion even toward those that ‘disturb’ him and conquer their hearts with his own genuine kindness and compassion. There would be no need either to announce pompous projects that get never achieved, to announce that 3000 villagers would receive food, medical supplies, equipment for building temporary shelters in order to collect money and in the end judging only through the statements published on the ‘official’ website that barely 600 only were helped. We wouldn’t be the witnesses of every single outrageous claim of project ending up at best into a ridiculously small version of it, or at worst ending up into a disgusting damage of the pristine environment with concrete constructions built without permit and without following the legal process for constructions.

Conclusion

One should not confuse meditation skills, even the ability to meditate without food in itself is not a proof of enlightenment. It’s just a demonstration of skills at meditating or at best a mastery of tummo. Anyone can create a cult or a religion if one wants to. That doesn’t make that cult or religion the manifestation of the Ultimate Truth.

But as soon as violence starts manifesting itself, and keeps coming back around the same group of people and actors, there is no way one can stay a silent witness to that, and continue supporting, financing and promoting that cause. And as that violence keeps manifesting itself, the only decent thing left to do is to warn everyone of the dangers of that cult. Had there been any honest steps taken to correct the lies, the abuses, the mismanagement, the controlling damaging behavior of some members like Ivy Jugooa, Andrea Good, Semyon, Joan Stanley Bakers, the violence expressed so publicly by Mr Tarnawsky, there would have never been the need to put all that dirty laundry out in public, instead the genuine and true efforts to achieve the good and act compassionately towards all living beings would have encountered the understanding and the help of many of those that left to bring and organize the proper mechanisms for diligence, honesty, non-violence and genuine care for all living beings.

Yet all that happened was going the opposite way of that direction. Dissimulation and lies served as tools of propaganda to sell a myth that evidently serves only the purpose of collecting money. Nothing was ever done to correct or to prevent the damaging attitudes and behaviors that created the climate of fanaticism and intolerance which resulted in so many instances of violence and scandals. There has never been any caring and brotherly attitude from the main actors/groupies around Mr Ramlal Bomjon towards the rest of the devotees. Instead just a dogmatic arrogant and pretty stupid attitude that had and has nothing to do with kindness and compassion. Waving around words like Dharma, Sangha, Maitri, Moksha, Mukti, is not enough to make that creed reliable or credible. It can certainly fool some people, but in the end it is through the actual deeds that one judges the message and its validity. The heart of honest and truthful people is moved by good deeds not by scandals and violence.

Ramlal Bomjon aides keep messing up

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151007064402/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/05/22/ramlal-bomjon-aides-keep-messing-up

by This Website | May 22, 2015
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”

Mr Ramlal Bomjon responds or does he?

From: https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20151018065343/http://www.dharma-sangha.com/news/2015/02/25/mr-ramlal-bomjon-responds-or-does-he

by This website | Feb 25, 2015
Mr Ramlal Bomjon has given a response, which doesn’t say much.

A response that contains nothing

(original)माहा समबोधि धर्म संध गुरु वचन

सत्य धर्मलाई प्रतिवाद गर्ने कुनै संसारमा अधिकार छैेन ा
तर समय आएपछि यस प्रतिवादको प्रतिउतर विश्वलाई दिइने छ ।

मैत्रिय मंगलम

(translation)No one can deny true Dharma in any world.

The answers for this criticism will be given in time to the world.

Salutations

Our response with content to his response with nothing

The question we ask Mr Ramlal Bomjon is what is true dharma doing with violence, detention, attacks of journalists, fights with villagers, physical violence of Mr Ramlal Bomjon himself towards his brother, a young foreigner man, and others.

How can Mr Ramlal Bomjon assure just this world, to start with, and then he can assure all the other worlds, that we will not have to be direct or indirect witnesses of these things happening again to more people from his aides or himself in this world. How can Mr Ramlal Bomjon tell us that he has understood that we are shocked by his autocratic, unethical, un-pedagogical and disastrous way of running his organization surrounded by people whom he chooses and places in important positions. As these people have among them the authors of the violence or the people that helped cover things up. What is there for us to learn from? The merits of any teachings should be manifested in the teacher.

If only Mr Ramlal Bomjon understood that there is nothing wrong about accepting that you made a mistake. But he has to realize it first. Then in our world, we have a word for that occasion. It is called Oops! And after Oops, compassionate and good hearted people in our world say: “I am sorry, please forgive me.” And all the kind people of the world would forgive you, as we share with you that capacity to make mistakes, so we can understand also someone else making a mistake.

What we talk about here is not just criticism, nor is it an attempt to ‘deny true Dharma’, it is just a clear and plain objection to any forms of violence. And when we see that violence emanating from the very midst of his own organization, then we can only object to it. Our objections are words, the detention, attacks on the press, fights with villagers, violent demonstrations to get his passport, etc…, are acts of violence. And our objections are presented in the form of relating those acts and by it opposing them and highlighting where things were the most unacceptable.

As soon as Mr Ramlal Bomjon sticks to true dharma, without any violence, in full respect of local and international laws, then the entire world here, and the worlds beyond, will be singing his praises, and we will find him many more new titles to proclaim his great achievements. We will call him in plain English The Greatest among us who has corrected his ways as never to be again a source of violence, Great Teacher of recovered errors, Great learner himself, example to us in this world and in all the other worlds.

Until this happens, at least for some he will remain only Mr Ramlal Bomjon, one of our brothers, one as much or as little deserving as any other, in a common struggle to become better people. Also still viewing every one in his entourage as my brothers and sisters, despite their inability to awaken their own consciences and have the courage to also say no to violence in any forms, to resign from their positions and to accept that they are unfit to hold them. And until meriting and capable people are surrounding Mr Ramlal Bomjon, and that they are all together meriting, capable examples for all, many of us will fear that the same mistakes keep on being repeated.

May Human Resource Skills be bestowed by all the worlds to Mr Ramlal Bomjon

May Lawful management be enshrined in his organization

May Competence shine as manifested by capable and skilled people

May Perfect Translation reach the ears of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, and May Perfect Translation prevent the loss of meaning when translating what Mr Ramlal Bomjon says.

May that help avoid any imperfect understanding and not ever again lead to disastrous consequences.

May his web machine serve as a vehicle of truth and not as a social-marketing tool to give false impressions and illusions of a big organization with many outlets and many followers to artificially try to collect donations, but serve only to display true dharmic teachings and nothing else. And when that is in place I am sure people will want to help and donate even if there isn’t a ‘donation page’ on the website.

May the organization take the initiative of addressing reaching out the victims of their violence, openly, publicly in a way that is truly compassionate, a way that restores their honor, acknowledges their right to live without slander or threats, recognizes their rights as brothers and sisters human beings, returning or compensating what was taken away/confiscated/stolen from them, as they are part of the “ALL” sentient beings for whom all the prayers are said.

It appears through this actual event fully recorded, what the actual both intellectual and spiritual capacity of Mr Ramlal Bomjon really is.

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.

English full transcript

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.

Director of the International Sangha

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

Director of the International Sangha

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lovetruthjoy and the money trail

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.

 

Warning to potential visitors

Warning to potential visitors

by This website | Mar 20, 2015
If you planned to go to Nepal to visit Mr Ramlal Bomjon be extremely cautious, make sure your friends, family, even embassy knows where you are and when you plan to come back.

Warning if you go to Nepal to visit Mr Ramlal Bomjon

The announcement of a puja the 25th of March, to be held in Sindhupalchowk, without the presence of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, may be a high risk to visitors and particularly to journalists.
The repeated incidents of violence, detention, attack against the press, violence against devotees, creates a risk for anyone trying to go there. This will remain a high risk as long as no clear measures and no clear reassurances emerge from Mr Ramlal Bomjon and his highly unreliable entourage, which has shown time and again in the past how they can threaten man and women alike, the press or even devotees, break the law and use violence and threats against them.
Since the beginning of his renunciation (tapasya) and start of meditation that was supposed to last 6 years, Ramlal Bomjon and his entourage have been involved in over 15 cases of violence, the last recorded one in September last year.
We have been asking over and over again that he himself and his management take a clear position as to prevent that these acts of violence happen again, so far nothing has been done on their side. The people involved in those acts of violence are still part of the closest entourage of Mr Ramlal Bomjon.
We therefore wish to warn everyone of using extreme caution if they are planning to go there. Get in touch with your embassy in Katmandu, register there, make sure people are informed of your dates of departure and when you are expected back. That they are able to reach you by mobile phone or otherwise.
