Ram Bahadur Bomjon's Message #1

After watching the documentary about this boy, Ram Bahadur Bomjon, who could mediate for several months without food and water, you might wonder what exactly is he trying to do?  Well, he had something to say after these long mediation sessions.  Not only will I post them all in the following week, I will analyze his messages and see if they are scam or legit in the end.  You can skip the message and see what I have to say about it, but first you need to click the "Explore" button below:

August 2007 - Message #1
Murder, violence, greed, anger and temptation has made the human world a desperate place.  A terrible storm has descended upon the human world, and this is carrying the world towards destruction.  There is only one way to save the world and that is through Dharma.  When one doesn't walk the righteous path of Dharma, this desperate world will surely be destroyed.
Therefore, follow the path of Dharma and spread this message to your fellows.  Never put obstacles, anger and disbelief in the way of my meditation’s mission.  I am only showing you the way; you must seek it on your own.  What I will be, what I will do, the coming days will reveal.  Human salvation, the salvation of all living beings, and peace in the world are my goal and my path. “Namo Buddha sangaya, Namo Buddha sangaya, namo sangaya.”  I am contemplating on the  release of this chaotic world from the ocean of emotion, on our detachment from anger and temptation, without straying from the path for even a moment, I am renouncing my own attachment to my life and my home forever, I am working to save all living beings.  But in this undisciplined world, my life’s practice is reduced to mere entertainment.
The practice and devotion of many Buddhas is directed at the world’s betterment and happiness.  It is essential but very difficult to understand that practice and devotion.  But though it is easy to lead this ignorant existence, human beings don’t understand that one day we must leave this uncertain world and go with the Lord of Death.  Our long attachments with friends and family will dissolve into nothingness.  We have to leave behind the wealth and property we have accumulated.  What’s the use of my happiness, when those who have loved me from the beginning, my mother, father, brothers, relatives are all unhappy.
Therefore, to rescue all sentient beings, I have to be Buddha-mind, and emerge from my underground cave to do “vajra” meditation.  To do this I have to realize the right path and knowledge, so do not disturb my practice.  My practice detaches me from my body, my soul and this existence.  In this situation there will be 72 goddess Kalis.  Different gods will be present, along with the sounds of thunder and of “tangur ,” and all the celestial gods and goddesses will be doing “puja” (worship.)  So until I have sent a message, do not come here, and please explain this to others.  Spread religious knowledge and religious messages throughout the world.  Spread the message of world peace to all. Seek a righteous path and wisdom will be yours.

There's a real easy way to expose a scam--find out what it is asking you to do essentially.  Let's list them all first:
  1. follow the path of Dharma
  2. do not disturb his practice
  3. spread religious knowledge and religious messages to the world
  4. spread the message of world peace to all
#2 and #4 seem pretty fair but he didn't really explain "the path of Dharma" (righteous path) and what religious knowledge we should spread.  There are also some interesting points here and there:
  1. "Murder, violence, greed, anger and temptation has made the human world a desperate place."
  2. "In this undisciplined world, my life’s practice is reduced to mere entertainment."
  3. "One day we must leave this uncertain world and go with the Lord of Death. Our long attachments with friends and family will dissolve into nothingness. We have to leave behind the wealth and property we have accumulated.
  4. "My practice detaches me from my body, my soul and this existence."
#1 and #2 couldn't sound more true to me I mean almost everyone has been viewing him as an entertainment, nothing more.  In #3, he was referring death to our bodily death.

He didn't revealed much in this message; it's not asking you to donate nor is he asking you believe some religions (so far).  We'll check his second message in the next post.


  1. Perhaps you should be asking yourself the question of why you are trying to "expose" a being that is outwardly helping society with his inward knowledge....there you may find your own peace....there you may find yourself less caring of the journey you are currently undertaking...there you will find the peace you are vehomently striving for but will not find on this path....Peace and love and light be with you....

  2. I'm trying to "expose" his messages so others may learn whatever they may learn reading his messages. I'm sure many would found his messages to be true and helpful.

  3. everyone has the right to speech. He is doing something personally. He has the right to ask don't disturb. Why do you bother much?

  4. maybe he should of been more considerate and aware that people take things different ways. he should of at least said something like how that path worked for him and respectfully to consider it.

  5. he has told you all you need to know, he can not do it for you...just show you the way. dont harm other living beings, concern yourself with the happiness, comfort and well being of others instead of your own. it doesn't matter what religion you follow...these truths hold true for everyone. humanities love for each other is the only cure for all the misery in the world. I for one feel blessed by his presence in this world and will strive to follow his message of love and peace.

  6. simple,coz he still study.....still half way to go.
    so,wait until he finish he meditation.u will know the truth.

  7. He has finished his 6 years of meditation and 1 year afterwards has passed, yet, what has his penance truly done in the world? Can he save the world when in fact he couldn't save even his own father who just passed away into the lord of Death? did he not know his father was sick and dying? if he is so Divine, why couldn't he save him? why couldn't he spiritually awaken him to enlightenment? All these guru's come and go with so many promises. and yet, the world and its ways continue its similar course. the only difference is... many will follow this 'kid' and live in the delusion he creates and never awaken to reality.

  8. Jason , Very well asked.
    As per my understanding death and birth are controlled by nature. If some one try to stop the cycle of nature it will turned to mass destruction. Consider if he stopped his father's death what will happened ? many powerful peoples, big person around the world will try to catch him to become immortal, its nothing but the big chaos. To avoid this destruction and to pass true knowledge to seekers he must not stopped the cycle of nature.
    Offcourse this is my foolish view towards your question.
    I hope it will help you to resolve .......

  9. As you notice Ram Bahadur has really BIG AND LONG hair probably a wig made of natural hair EXTENTIONS (notice all other Indians have normal hair cut). Beneath the wig he puts plastic bag full with salt water or other nutritious substances. It's very possible to pierce the tympanic membrane and to reach the throat via a thin tube. When he was 15 years boy he "meditated" under big tree for 4 months and he has lost weight because of this regime. Under the tree there was a tunnel ( underground shaft).
    He has a catheter to urinate. His brother enters the tree through an underground shaft to change the dippers. They collected a significant amount of money.
    Otherwise I know the meditation is the way to reach enlightenment, but ESPECIALLY this guy is a fraud.

    1. It’s possible to put a plastic bag with glucose solution on the top of your head. The tube with the needle entering your vein (notice his hand is hidden). Catheter for the urine. Dippers for the poop. The brother sneaks through underground tunnel to change the dippers. Now when he is rich enough he can afford more sophisticated equipment: FX skin, wigs...etc.
      Shame for the Buddhist world! Meditation is great practice and false "gurus" must be debunked!!!!!!

    2. yea! his hair looks weird!....for 10 months it didn't grow an inch....obviously a wig...;)))
