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:
- follow the path of Dharma
- do not disturb his practice
- spread religious knowledge and religious messages to the world
- spread the message of world peace to all
- "Murder, violence, greed, anger and temptation has made the human world a desperate place."
- "In this undisciplined world, my life’s practice is reduced to mere entertainment."
- "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.
- "My practice detaches me from my body, my soul and this existence."
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.
