‘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.

lovetruthjoy a strange pseudonym

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

 

by This website | Mar 21, 2015

 

Andrea Good aka lovetruthjoy aka Jyampa Dolma, holds tight to her position of co-guru, super translator, chosen one, vice-ruler of the sangha. Why?

 

Boundless stubbornness and huge ego

Andrea Good aka lovetruthjoy aka Jyampa Dolma, holds tight to her position of co-guru, super translator, chosen one, vice-ruler of the sangha. Why? Just follow the money trail and you will understand. All her trips to Nepal have been financed by devotees because of the way she presents herself to the community, as chief inquisitor, mother superior and super moderator of the Google Groups, deciding who can say what, when and how. Establishing her own rules, with an ego bigger than the Everest, she is holding tight to all her positions to be able to continue receiving financial support, plane tickets, and most importantly for her, probably as she puts it herself: “being the co-star of a fantastic unfolding story”.

Andrea Good controls the website Maitreya.info, the YouTube countless channels, Facebook and Google + pages, the Google Groups, all this propaganda arsenal at the service of her own ego, of her own mental constructs of what has become like a sect which she is shaping herself, and controlling.

In her book, she describes how she keeps building dramas, chapter 24, the title of the chapter itself is “Drama” and the text says:

Her book: Reflections on Sambodhi Dharma Sangha

“As you remember, I [Andrea Good] felt very foolish after having made up a story in my mind about the Dorje and coming to believe it. Why had I [Andrea Good] deemed it necessary to see a miracle? Because I [Andrea Good] wished to support the drama that I [Andrea Good] had come to believe without ever questioning the reasons I [Andrea Good] had for believing it. I deserved to have my kata thrown at me [Andrea Good]! But it was not necessary, I had trapped myself [Andrea Good]. My ego [Andrea Good] wished to make myself [Andrea Good] the co-star of a fantastic unfolding story, and this desire was deterring me [Andrea Good] from seeing what was really happening which was actually far more beautiful than anything I [Andrea Good] could concoct. If only I [Andrea Good] could see it with clear and unimpeded vision!

Shakespeare said that the whole world is a stage and that we are all actors on this stage. In a sense, he is right. But there is also a warning about taking this statement to heart. If we allow ourselves to be continuously creating a drama, we will produce much suffering.”

Her involvement in the translations despite not being a native Nepali speaker, despite not even being an average Nepali speaker, or despite not even being a poor level Nepali speaker, has been a continuous clinging onto the position despite and against any remark she could receive from anyone. There was a time we tried to send her translations done by native Nepali monks from a renowned monastery, people with PhDs, in collaboration with professional translators and in collaboration with Pragya, a great guy, who was treated with a lot of disrespect by her while she used him to help her translate and take on all the credits for it.

There was an exchange of emails while we were trying to have her accept cooperation from people more qualified than she was. But she defended her sacred turf at all costs. This is a small excerpt from an email from Kim the then president of BSDS after attempting to make sense with her:

Email between Kim, myself and Andrea

Kim writes to me:

She is running around a circle , give me this kind of answer. Read her mail below.

Pragya just told me that Andy starting flooding his mail box with questions and fixing script. Now I know she does that so that she can tell me, yah I get help from Bhante Pragya, I m not doing it alone…. So much ego, but it is fine, Guruji is testing all of us.

I just only ring the bell at her, but I stop here and let her continues the show, but at least Semyon and her will be alert about what they are doing. One time she told me and Ivy when we met in Nepal that:”I am just like Guru, the difference is I eat and he doesn’t!”. Both Ivy and I cannot believe what we heard. Ok, no more gossip.

MM, K.

See below the screenshots of the full thread of communication on that topic, the actors in it are the President then of BSDS Kim, and Andrea Good, unchanged since the very first days she got attracted by Ramlal Bomjon.

On another occasion I was sitting with Pragya and we had mostly finished working on the translations made by different translators, the monk, a professional nepali translator and Pragya himself, when Andrea Good was messaging to get words translated by Pragya. We had a great laugh. She can’t really make a translation on her own, it’s locals like Rahul, Pragya, Kishore and a few others that help her, and she always brags and attracts the credit to herself. She even used to sign all the translations.

We wanted more than anything that there is a proper review process of the translations. Even the original text had sometimes words missing, or when it came from a voice recording it was at times difficult to transcribe. But she always shows herself as the most capable and maybe the only one apt to do it. Humility, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, are notions difficult for her even in English.

She is not the only problem, it’s a gathering of people who have turned off their conscience at the mercy of their own fanaticism, and are trying to shape everyone else to be like them. Instead of allowing for a participative emulation of the best in each and everyone, we get a group where the closest entourage of Mr Ramlal Bomjon emulates the worst possible behaviors, locked up in their mental spaces, incapable of cooperating or of questioning themselves and their own negative impact on the whole community. Instead of insight there is stubbornness and ego.

If this was just my way of seeing things with her, it would be not much relevant, but almost everyone I have been able to talk to and that knows her, has more or less the same experience of her. She never takes an extended hand for cooperation or even to discuss anything. The entire internet presence of what is supposed to be the organization of Mr Ramlal Bomjon, is run by her close minded convictions. She uses Semyon as to create in him also the same kind of fanaticism that she has, because she needs him.

Instead of trying to find a resolution with the victims that they have sown all around themselves, they are all camping on their positions, not ready to move the smallest finger towards reaching the state of peace and compassion that they are so vocal about, but that is totally absent from all their deeds.

Confusion comes from lies

 

by This website | Feb 13, 2015

 

Lies get you into more lies, that get you into more lies and more problems…

 

When things are wrong they also appear wrong

The March 2014 the official newsletter of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha announces the ordination of a new monk baring the name Jyampa Ngami. The text goes and says:
“We are pleased to report the USA Sangha has been diligently working to develop a new Temple in the name of Maitriya Guru Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha. The Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha Temple opened in early February, 2014. Although located in the United States, The Temple is the sacred space for devotees from all parts of the world, who are always invited to visit, pray, chant and study Dharma.
The Temple houses a beautiful shrine adorned with a new Maitriya statue, carved in stone, along with pictures of His Holiness, and other sacred objects. The USA Chapter office is also being housed in the Temple along with monk living quarters, library, and a meditation room. The back of the Temple is a peaceful space for walking meditations, tea meditations, and quiet mindful moments underneath a large actual Bodhi tree.
We are currently meeting every Sunday at 2:00 PM to pray, chant and share the loving kindness of Guru. We would like to take this opportunity to give you a warm welcome to the Temple if you happen to be in the area. The Temple is located in Westminster, California. Please call Jampa Ngami if you would like to visit with us at (xxx) xxx-xx-xx. We would love to greet you. For those devotees who would like to volunteer their time and talents, we are always delighted to welcome you, and show you projects we are working on at the moment. Please call Jampa Ngami and he will arrange for your stay at the Temple.”

Who is Jyampa Ngami

It’s someone who presented himself as Dr. William J. Moore, Ph.D., MSW, LADC, CCS Clinical Director, and asked to become a monk for Ramlal Bomjon. This doctor of psychology will serve the purpose of establishing an online diagnosis to discredit Ms Takacs, quoted in emails sent by Mrs Kim Nguyen (president of Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha). Instead of ever organizing an internal process within the organization to question the criminal act of the detention of people by the entourage of Ramlal Bomjon, the top management of BSDS, with Kim Nguyen as president, Andrea Good as ‘moderator of her own blogs, namely the google groups of deception’, organizes the orchestrated slander and defamation of Ms Takacs. His online diagnosis is sent to Kishore Sherchand a Nepali realtor in the USA, who writes self-inspired articles about Ramlal Bomjon on Nepali blogs and media. The intent, showing that what Ms Takacs writes on her blogs is not reliable, calling into the very integrity of the person who was the victim of an unlawful detention by Ramlal Bomjon. The full text of the emails will be later provided.

Question: How was he accepted by Ramlal Bomjon?
Answer: A photo of Dr Moore was presented to Ramlal Bomjon and he accepted him. They never met, no training or teaching was ever provided to the wannabe monk. No substance ever existed in any of the steps of that process.

Question: How was Dr Moore ordained?
Answer: By staging a fake ordination ceremony in the USA, not a single ordained monk was present at the ceremony. Only two persons connected to Ramlal Bomjon were present at the ceremony, Kim Nguyen and Dawa Ngima Tamang. Neiter Kim nor Dawa are monks. The rest are Vietnamese family and friends of Kim Nguyen, and the monk itself. See below photos of the ceremony. The house belong to Kim Nguyen, and let us translate what is written in this newsletter: “The temple houses a beautiful shrine adorned with a ‘New Maitriya’ statue, carved in stone’, along with pictures of His Holiness and other sacred objects’. The house is a plain ordinary house, with an ordinary cheap chinese collection of buddha statues, a stone statue turned backward (ok that must be the My Trayer statue, it’s ashamed to look at us it seems), a small cardboard calendar on a short tallboy and another calendar hanging on the wall.

Monk ordination ceremony The 'Temple' and 'Shrine' The outside of the 'Temple'

Question: What happens with this monk?
Answer: Not long after the ordination, and installation of the fake monk, in the fake temple, the fake monk is getting tired of being alone in the fake temple, tired of wearing the robe (poor guy he never received the nice blue monk dress designed by Guru-stylist Ramlal Bomjon. He is even beginning to threaten Kim Nguyen. Sending menacing sms’s to her. Kim doesn’t know what to do with him any more. A fake monk, in a fake temple, making ‘real’ threats, that’s no good! So after weeks of cat and mouse game between the monk and Kim where the monk would not answer at the phone calls, not open the door of the fake temple, keep asking for money, walk around the town in civilian ordinary clothes, Kim manages to get rid of him, sending him to a Vietnamese Buddhist temple.

The organization BSDS in the USA

An organization officially registered in the USA exists. What is flimsy with it is that it doesn’t have any real activity other than collecting the money of all the international donations. Before moneys were also collected in Japan by Andrea Good, but the organization quickly realized that Mrs Good is not so good when it comes to dealing with money. Andrea even told once Kim that taking a bit of money from the donations is OK, as long as no one knows about it. So donations are centrally collected by the Kim, and what else? Well not much really, there was a fair organized once in San Francisco, to which they participated, with a stand and banner, see photo.
 The California Fair
A few names are registered with this organization, as an organization in the USA requires that you have at least a President, a Treasurer and a Secretary. So some local friends devotees are named at those positions. Two of them only in reality a certain Mark V. M. and Smitha, yet Kim sends emails informing of the existance of 6 main members of Board of Directors. In which I am named as one of them, even though I was never either asked to accept such a function, nor ever received any information about the role of the board or my role within it. The two persons Mark V. and Smitha, almost never meet, even for the mandatory meetings a this fictitious board.
Here is the extract of the email sent by Kim Nguyen to Mr Kishore to explain the structure of the organization:

“Dear Kishore,

This is Kim. We have 6 main members from Board Director, 5 from California and 1 from France( our webmaster, Ivan). We also have a lot of members, both in US and outside of US too. I am out of town, in Florida. When i come back next week, I will fw you the board names, if you like to know. We are an approved 501(c)3 non profit organization. So, all donation are 100% tax exempt.

Maitri Mangalam,

K.”

In may 2014, that very tax exemption was revoked by the American IRS. (check this link: http://orghunter.com/organization/453932891 ), I even informed myself Kim about it, that was in December 2014. Mark and Smitha not even being reachable Kim Nguyen is filling the vacancy with her own daughter. (Where are all the other 4 missing directors?) Maybe that email was not so accurate. Can we call this a lie? Or maybe I am just trying to create some confusion? Where does the confusion come from, each and everyone of those actors should ask themselves, as I am asking myself. At least I try to highlight the source, the causes, and the possibilities for restoring truth and accountability.
In the meantime Kim has been collecting in emergency ‘receipts’ from Nepal of expenditures. Receipts from Nepal in 2015 for the past years? The ink must be very fresh on those receipts. I hope they are true receipts.
“We have a lot of members”, well let’s examine the word member; member implies membership, membership is the choice one makes to join, subscribe, or belong to ‘something’. BSDS USA, and BSDS Nepal, have no membership programs, no membership processes, no members list, no members that declared themselves members. Sometimes it’s not a bad idea to call a cat: “A cat!”.
Wait a second. If no real board of directors, if no real monk, if no real temple, if no real organization, we wonder where does the confusion come from?

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
