Questions from devotees

 

by This website | Feb 09, 2015

 

We are receiving questions from devotees addressed to Ramlal Bomjon.

 

His devotees wondering

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

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

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?

Propaganda and Web lies

Propaganda and Web lies

 

by This Website | Feb 07, 2015

 

An illustration of how propaganda gets built, how legends are created, how fanaticism encourages the distortion of the truth. Fanaticism starts from an exaggerated zeal to show devotion and ends up in a sad misleading propaganda.

 

While the websites have never been reviewed by Ram Bomjon himself, nor by anyone qualified to review them, nor even by anyone full stop, they are the product of the fanatical views of the individuals involved in their creation and maintenance. For three years requests were made that a proper review be conducted, it never happened.

The word ‘Sangha’ is used all over the place without any clear definition to support what is meant by that word, one could say that the vagueness is intentional as to give the auditorium the only impression he can get from reading the content, that of a large worldwide collection of communities active and organized around a common goal. Vague enough to keep it totally unaccountable in case of any legal, moral or financial responsibility.

Sangha Worldwide Untruth

What’s the reality? There is only 2 organizations registered legally, one in Nepal and one in the USA. None of which is actually a ‘Sangha’ as most people would understand the definition of that term, for instance as given in the Wikipedia: “(Pali: सङ्घ saṅgha; Sanskrit: संघ saṃgha; Chinese: 僧伽; pinyin: Sēngjiā; Tibetan: དགེ་འདུན་ dge ‘dun) is a word in Pali and Sanskrit meaning “association”, “assembly,” “company” or “community” and most commonly refers in Buddhism to the monastic community of ordained Buddhist monks or nuns.”

The USA organization does not have any ordained monks within it. There is no ‘Sangha’ activities organized by it, other than the collection of donations (money). The Nepali ‘Sangha’ is having some monks, some of which were given robes without any ordination or vows or ethic being required from them. No education or teaching really takes place, those monks are at times involved in violent acts, and spend most of their time, either playing with their mobile phones, or training to chant the ‘Prayers to the seven Deities’.

Fake list of Sanghas

Fake List continued

All the ‘Sanghas’ represented on the website etapasvi now maitreya.info, are just web pages, google groups, youtube channels or facebook pages, no oversight, no monks, no teaching, no structure, no authorization to create them. That is what most people would call ‘propaganda’. What used to be a single Google Group for all, became obsolete as a big campaign of propaganda was launched by an American born living in Japan Andrea Good, against a former devotee Ms Takacs known as “Marici” after she was chained and detained by the closest collaborators of Ram Bomjon in Halkhoriya. Slander and defamation was propagated against her, access to that Google Group was blocked for her, and a series of new Google Groups were created baring names like “The Core Maitri Sangha group“, the “Sangha Dev group“, “Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha Group“, and another dozen others, to cater for the most faithfull to that same Andrea Good more than to any other cause.

Social Illusion

The main new group bared a welcome text that stated the following:
“Welcome Sangha members, devotees and followers of Maha Sambodhi Guru Dharma Sangha. This group is formed for those who, in deep trust of the Guru, are making a serious effort to follow the teachings. It is a continuation of the original Google Group founded in 2007. Central to all communication, acts, and meditation is the willingness to dedicate body, speech, and soul/heart to the freedom and welfare of all sentient beings in refuge of the Guru. As this group is for the truly faithful, we are blessed by the Guru’s presence. Thus, we are kindly requested to behave in the same way as we would in his physical presence. When entering this group it is in understanding of the Samaya (agreement) between the follower and Guru to uphold the 11 precepts. If the Samaya is transgressed, then we will remind one another of this responsibility and make an honest effort to repair it by showing a sincere willingness not to repeat the unwholesome act.”
Many were shocked by those discriminatory actions organized and enacted by Andrea Good, and a letter was sent to her with the following text:

“A lot of the sentences there are creating division and discrimination. Does Guruji wonder whether someone is truly faithful or not before he gives his blessing, does He select who to give a blessing to?

First sentence: “Welcome Sangha members, devotees and followers of Maha Sambodhi Guru Dharma Sangha. This group is formed for those who, in deep trust of the Guru, are making a serious effort to follow the teachings.”

Question: Who needs to judge if someone is making a serious effort to follow the teachings or not? Are we following the teaching by creating a separation between some brothers and sisters and others? Isn’t this separation and creation of groups for the “truly faithful” a clear contradiction with the First Precept: “Never discriminate on the basis of name, appearance, complexion, class, belief, community, power, position, or qualification; even discard differentiating between the concepts of material and spiritual”.

Third sentence: “As this group is for the truly faithful, we are blessed by the Guru’s presence.”

Question: Who are we to judge who is truly faithful or not, who are we to ask from anyone to examine whether he deems himself truly faithful or not? Shouldn’t we be inclusive while Guruji works at uniting all religious traditions, here we are creating already division among us. From the moment this division was created, some brothers and sisters feeling ‘unworthy’ of the new group (which by the way is just an internet discussion platform), left with sadness and sorrow and maybe some of them even gave up. From 964 members we are left with 138. We’ve eliminated 826 brothers and sisters from our family. An internet discussion group is not the Holy of Holy of the Temple, and even in Buddhist temples throughout India and Nepal, everyone is welcome, even animals are free to roam. So why are we preventing others brothers and sisters to receive our brotherly love and compassion? The pretext is given on the top: “In respect of Guru’s request not to refer to him as “Buddha Boy” we are shifting this group to a new link which does not contain that label.” Doesn’t this sound like a lame pretext, when you can change the name of the group in the settings of the group? Where is our compassion for “ALL” sentient beings?

Fourth sentence: “Thus, we are kindly requested to behave in the same way as we would in his physical presence.”

Question: Did Guruji ever ask anyone to behave a certain way, or does He through His boundless compassion for ALL naturally invites respect and devotion from all of us? If anything, shouldn’t we be trying to emulate compassion instead of adding precepts of our own making for internet discussion groups?

Fifth sentence: “When entering this group it is in understanding of the Samaya (agreement) between the follower and Guru to uphold the 11 precepts.”

Question: What does entering an online discussion group have to do with a Samaya “Covenant” that is a personal engagement between oneself and the Teacher? Why do we need to distort a tool that can help bring brothers and sisters together and feel among a family, become a tool to divide?

Last sentence: “If the Samaya is transgressed, then we will remind one another of this responsibility and make an honest effort to repair it by showing a sincere willingness not to repeat the unwholesome act.”

Question: Who is the judge of the transgression? Isn’t the creation of so many different groups for this type and that type of brothers and sisters precisely a clear transgression towards the efforts of Guruji to care for ALL sentient beings? How long will it take for us to grow and be inclusive, open our arms and hearts to all our brothers and sisters in this world, regardless their religion, belief, color, faithfulness, unfaithfulness, or any other attributes? Are we really following the Maitri Path when we do this? Is this really what Guruji is teaching us? Did Guruji ask to create many groups to cater for certain types of brothers and sisters and segregate them from the rest?

Is there enough groups, to hold all the various degrees of faithfulness? Are we sure we shouldn’t create maybe also Google’s groups for visitors of this website or that website, for Facebook users and twitter readers? Then some for very faithful readers and others for not yet enough faithful? And who is in charge of determining who passes the examination of faithfulness?”

In the exchange that followed this it was highlighted how this person (Andrea Good) was abusing her position of moderator/self imposed translator/self-proclaimed co-Guru to get from other devotees to pay for her plane tickets to Nepal. She would see nothing wrong with it, as in her eyes, they are ‘her friends’. So she feels clean about it. And in the same exchange, for which the full content of the exchange will later be published, she clearly calls the Google Groups ‘MY BLOGS’ and since they are “HER BLOGS” then definitely she can do what she wants with them. But at least it is important to know that is what they are. As the impression many of us had is that they were something for the community.

Menu giving fake impression of importance

Lying menu

No such things as Live Videos exists, no real questions and answer sessions are regularly orgnized. Usually its like 10-15 min sessions that only happened 3 or 4 times, where the content has been filtered out to only portrait the meaningless questions and hide the rest. Projects used to be a big sections but as no project really ever completed it is just a section to portrait that there are things going on when all the projects have failed, the money wasted, the constructions destroyed, and the reasons for collecting the money were masking what the money were spent on.

Mr Ramlal Bomjon personal violence witnessed

Mr Ramlal Bomjon personal violence witnessed

by This website | Mar 23, 2015

Mr Ramlal Bomjon personal violence seen by many

In front of a small crowd of foreign devotees Mr Ramlal Bomjon was in violent ire against a young man and his own brother. With great sincerity a number of those who had witnessed this outburst of anger started asking questions. The propaganda ‘gang’ would silence them or discredit them. As these are the methodologies they use, as they are incapable of demonstrating any kindness or compassion. Kindness, compassion is just for the public websites, to attract donations, to create an artificial following of ‘Likes’ on Facebook, and to exchange some hollow Om Mani (money) padme hum.
Apart from a small number (one kind woman, indeed a small number) who is not part of the management, there is not a single member of the managing entourage of Mr Ramlal Bomjon that is capable of showing kindness or compassion in real life. They are clinging to their positions despite all the damage they have caused. Over 40 victims wounded or attacked, over 15 incidents where one after the other they keep displaying violence instead of kindness or compassion.
They are even incapable of talking to each others. They never ever addressed the victims and apologized. It is only individual devotees, disheartened by the wrong doings of that management and Mr Ramlal Bomjon, that took steps to take some victims in their arms, apologize to them and be compassionate with them. In 9 years that I have been observing this heterogeneous group of new agers, bigots and fanatics I have never seen or witnessed any initiatives to practice kindness or demonstrate compassion towards anyone. They use kids and women in Nepal as servants/slaves for hard work and hard chores, they do the same around Mr Ramlal Bomjon. What progress does he bring? None!
In 2012 Mr Ramlal Bomjon was seen by many go angry. The witnesses couldn’t believe their own eyes. The witnesses started asking questions, tried to understand why and how this could be explained. This is an extract of what was exchanged within the Google group at that time:
Extract from a post by Marie Soleil:
But why am I writing all this??? Because a few days ago, one of my friend who have been in Nepal for the puja have witnessed Dharma Sangha being strongly aggressive. Here’s a part of the message I’ve received:

“I was asleep one night when some of the child monks ran to the camp and told all the foreigners to get up and have a meeting with kempo. (…) everyone was upset. they had stolen the key to the tractor from Ratanpur gompa. Dharma Sangha came out with a samurai sword strapped to his back, Buddha and Darshan had them too and everyone else had sticks or knives and weapons. Dharma Sangha was very angry and yelled at them and made one of them get on his knees and slapped him very hard. Seeing that broke my heart and confused me. He then took the others away and i think is holding them there? I was so confused. I left very sad and confused. The role model I loved so much, I saw him slap someone and be so angry. I don’t know what to think?”

Dharma Sangha, the enlightened one, should have known that this kind of discipline is absolutely destroying… Maybe those kids won’t play bad tricks again but what will they have learned from the message of Love Dharma Sangha is giving us?

If I wrote my own story, it is because I want to be very clear: I am not judging Dharma Sangha at all. I love him from the bottom of my heart. And because I had to face this “evil” inside of me, I completely understand that everyone can face this evil despite our good will. But I don’t approve those behaviors. There’s no good reason for anger!

Please, in your heart and mind, don’t cultivate any judgement. This is definitely not what I want to create here. For me, it only shows us that he is not perfect but a human being like you and me. And I shared my own experience precisely because I want you to love him despite all the anger he might be expressing…

But because he pretends to be enlightened at the highest level of enlightenment, I wonder if he can recognize that he might be wrong. In fact, I am very concerned about him… For the last 6 years, he has given himself for others but what about his own feelings and needs? If he completely ignore his human feelings and emotional deprivation, one day, it will have to show up for sure.

Maybe many devotees will be unhappy to read my comment but I believe that his aggressive behaviors should be known. If we keep them secret, it is because we recognize that these are not the language of Love and we are not protecting Dharma Sangha but only our own hope in what he represents.

I love Dharma Sangha even if I consider that he might have “faults”. And with all my heart, I pray for him. Since I have seen him on internet, I have reached state of consciousness I have never reached before and I don’t want him to stop spreading the message of Love he wants to give to our world. But I don’t want to bury my head in the sand either.

Before planning his tour around the world, maybe we should understand more what he wants to create when he acts like this. Maybe I just don’t understand.

If I am blind, if I go against God’s will, may I be forgiven… All I want is Truth, Love and Wisdom. May Dharma Sangha accomplish his mission of bringing Love in our world! And may all beings be happy!

With all my Love, Jyampa Lhamo (Marie-Soleil)

Then the president of BSDS Kim runs to denies everything and lies she was there, denial has worked marvels for them all the time, it is based on our incredible ability to be gullible:

Sister Lhamo, I was there, all nights, even a midnight meeting in the dark, only with new moon light, with Guruji DS together with Andrea and Ivy, and some Sangha’s members. I never saw anything like ” your friend” did mention to you…, a sword, knives, sticks…..Please be patient, and this is a test for your faith. Your friend ‘s message made me “laugh” so hard…. The truth is always there, being the truth.

Om Namo Guru Buddha Gyani.

Kim (you can call me anytime , sister)

Then the witness replies and explains:

Andrea, and ivy were not there, they had left a few days before. Joe was there, and a man from France named Sebastian was there, and I would not try to spread lies about someone who is trying to awaken humanity and heal the earth. I was awoken by young monks, and told there was a meeting with Khenpo. there was a big commotion. The person i saw slapped was a younger man, maybe 20 years old? plus or minus a few years. after that the foreigners (joe and I and others) were told to go to bed, but after that the meeting continued in the room where the paintings are hung. there i heard from someone the next day more people were disciplined (slapped). i saw with my own eyes Dharma Sangha with a samurai sword, slapping one person after he made him get on his knees. he then got in his brothers face, pointing his finger at him and being very angry, he tried to slap him once and his brother moved back and narrowly missed it. PLease don’t think I would make this up. I love Dharma Sangha so much and have been following his story for the past 5 years and am so glad to be on earth with him. I just guess I don’t understand why he could display anger and violent force? i thought an enlightened being has destroyed all the mental defilements, making it impossible to become angry. I wish I could have talked to him about it and ask him directly but it is nearly impossible to talk to him. I was planning full heartedly on becoming a monk under him and had already asked and shaved my head and everything, but when I saw this my heart spoke and i new something wasn’t right. I feel I needed to see this because only God, Dharma, Source and the inner truth can truly lead oneself to their own path. Dharma Sangha helped teach me this in the most unexpected way. may all beings be happy, love and light to all beings, may we all realize the truth that is always true and melts away all illusions. i just wish to understand and know truth! infinite love.

devin

When covering up all the problems that occur, then the questions do go away they keep coming back at you. They will keep coming back as long as the proclaimed and advertised compassion is not used and applied to answer those questions. As long as compassion is not given and shown towards the victims no one should believe a single thing that is just said, the acts have to meet the claims of compassion. And so far, that is completely absent.

Attack on the press during puja

Attack on the press during puja

by This Website | Apr 05, 2015
While detaining a women, a puja set to promote peace and compassion is organized in 2012 during which journalists were attacked by Bomjon’s aides.

Attack on the press

What we imagine, and this is where the word imagine gets all of its power, is not a controversial figure who likes to fly by helicopter, who gets involved in physical abuse over his monks, his family, his devotees. We were all expecting a sort of highly ethical, highly intelligent and discerning being. Instead, at every incident, at any sign of debate or opposition we are witnessing an autocratic, disconnected from reality and the very basic norms of ethical behavior, who knows nothing else than respond with violence and set himself up above the authority of the laws that govern our rights and freedom.
He sets himself as the sole repository of what he calls ‘true dharma’ and tells us no one in any worlds has authority over him. In due time, he tells, he will respond to the objections to the Universe. Or at least that’s how their website mistranslates and uses the word Universe instead of World.
When he is being called the greatest gift from Nepal to mankind, watch out on the sort of gift you are getting.

Bomjon’s boys go unruly‚ beat up journos –
Added At: 2012-03-22 12:08 AM
Last Updated At: 2012-03-22 12:08 AM
HIMALAYAN NEWS SERVICE PATHLAIYA:Volunteers attending to Ram Bahadur Bomjon, who is said to be meditating in the Halkhoriya jungle area of Bara since 2005, today beat up five journalists. Bibhu Adhikari of News 24 TV, Resham Tiwari of NTV, Prakash Lamsal of Image Channel, Binod Pyakurel of TTV and Basant Khatiwada of the Mofasal Dot Com Weekly fell victim to the wrath of the aides of Bomjon, who is also nicknamed Buddha Boy. Following the attack, the journalists rushed to an Armed Police Force camp in Piluwa. “We were filming Bomjon’s sermon but suddenly his aides attacked us and seized our cameras,” said Adhikari. Police had reached Halkhoriya after the incident, but they too were barred from entering the site where Bomjon was giving his sermon. Police, however, managed to get journalists’ cameras back. (Thehimalayantimes.com )

Let’s decrypt

Why were the journalists attacked? Why such a need to prevent any photos from being taken? What brought the journalist there in the first place? Let’s try to answer the questions.
During this very puja, Ms Takacs was detained. Could it be that journalists taking pictures needn’t happen? Very bad image indeed, a woman tied up, detained, during a Puja about peace and compassion, and their guru giving a speech. They so much can’t cope with what they have done, that year after year the only program they really provide is a program of deception, of covering up the unacceptable and unethical detention of human beings by lies and a series of attempts to discredit the victims, instead of acting with the compassion they preach about.
The men rushing to attack the press are the closest aides to Bomjon, the polish national Tomek Tarnowski (Tom Dorje), which the journalists mistakenly take for a German, and Darshan Limbu, who are also the main executors of the detention and captivity of two women, Ms Takacs and the Nepali healer lady, captured on camera and on still photographies by over half a dozen journalists while confronting the journalists. Ramlal Bomjon’s attendants attack journalists
It took contacting the police in another town and getting them to intervene for the journalists to get back their equipment, snatched by the aides of Bomjon.
Even worse, it’s an accumulated collection of unethical conduct that stains and discredits any valuable lesson that might be contained in the Buddhist-like speeches given by Mr Ramlal Bomjon. What is common to all of them, is a constant denial of responsibility, a systematic blame of the other side.
– A Spanish Woman – A young western adult – Ms Takacs – Villagers from Bara – The brother of Ramlal – Demonstration for the passport of Mr Ramlal that ended up in a collective display of violence – Villagers in September 2014 again in Halkhoriya detained two men then global fight between villagers and Bomjon aides follows.
The list is quite long, over 40 people we know about so far.
In none of these occurrences did Mr Ramlal appease the situation, never did he use the opportunity to dispense a ‘teaching’. Only slightly maybe in September 2014 when he very swiftly apologized to the police that arrived on the scene. What’s been consistent on the contrary for each of these events, is a coordinated effort to provide a quick dismissal of accountability and a blame on the other parties. If Mr Ramlal Bomjon cannot even educate his aides on how to act with compassion, then maybe all his devotees could remind him that laws exist, and violence is condemned in our societies. Even in Nepal.
