“Jyampa Yeshe said that Guru had announced that Guru Ama was his wife and that she is now pregnant. But he wants us to keep this information only for trusted members of the Sangha and not to announce it on the internet. So, this is what has been shared, and I feel we are at peace.

Most people who search for information about Ram Bomjon (Maitriya) are interested about two basic, actually very basic things concerning him: how is it with violence and sex. These “two pillars” decide about a lot when we judge a person, especially a guru, and especially someone who would, in a very short time, arrive in our countries and announce to be the Messiah, Maitreya, Savior of the World… simply the highest god who was enlightened above the level of Gautama Buddha:
“He claims that he is a God. He even claimed that he has got more knowledge than Lord Gautam Buddha. He also told that he is more superior to other Gods.” Story of Ram Bahadur Bomjon (DC Nepal)
Concerning the violence, there are countless media sources, though I admit, expertly swept away from Google’s main pages and media, to obscure archives and private blogs. Yet there are, and they can be still found by scrupulous search. The vast majority of SEO-ignorant folk, especially among non-English speakers, have no chance to find these media links. This website is a rich source of mainstream and reliable sources on Buddha Boy’s violent acts (his long-time and extensive activity) by itself alone. Below is a list of a few external links which also provide a list and detailed descriptions of his violence against more than a dozen of people by now, two of them having had died due to it:
But what about sex? I know, you could not wait to get to these lines. The strange preoccupation of people, who are attracted to spirituality, with sex is a known phenomena. For some, sex is in contradiction to spirituality (but they are still interested to learn about it, at least for supporting this opinion) and for many sex and spirituality comes together in the form of Neo-Tantra, a Western-born belief that sex is a way to enlightenment. Many Indian and Tibetan gurus had gained popularity by speaking openly about (the harmlessness) of free sexual relationships, and many of them went further, to offer themselves as direct examples, by keeping lovers, raping their disciples, misusing their authority to entice young virgins…
Names like Sogyal rinpoche or Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Swami Nityananda, Swami Meheshwarananda are often mentioned in this connection, while Osho, the Indian fugitive having established a new way of Yoga in the USA, is a synonym to free (understand: promiscuous) sex as a means to “spiritual” freedom (at least for the male participants).
Ad Osho: interestingly, two notorious torture and violence assistants in Ram Bomjon’s “Maitri Squad”, Bal Hari Rai and Darshan Limbu, had been both active members of Nepal’s Osho organization, Bal Hari Rai being even one of its licensed teachers! In tune with what they had learned there, they were known as permanently on the hunt for sexual relationships in Ram Bomjon’s compound. Maybe that’s why he liked them so much that he had appointed them his main trustees with privileges that no one else had. He also endorsed them to start extramarital relationships with his own followers. Thus the married Bal Hari Rai had hunted down a Czech follower Jana Klepkova, and marrying her in Europe (keeping secret he already had a wife and child in Nepal’s Kakarbhitta), he acquired European citizenship.
Darshan, his friend, was less succesful: he had picked up a friend of Jana, who unfortunately was not just not interested in Darshan, but she was a lesbian… The main trick to seduce a Bomjon-follower beauty is “Come to Guruji to Halkhoriya, we would like to have you in his Sangha! You would look so beautiful in a nun’s robe and shaved head!” …
So we know that concerning Ram Bomjon’s nearest friends, sex was not a forbidden and not a rare event. The intimacy of the dense jungle of Halkhoriya was calling for it…
But how is it with the innocently looking prophet-fashion model, who wears his shiny white robes and has always perfectly combed and oiled hair, the Buddha Boy Ram Bahadur Bomjan himself? His “only” bad deeds are a few innocent attacks, kidnappings and hostage-holdings of alleged “witches” for months, beating his visitors to blood, breaking their bones. But, in spite of his growing power above tens of thousands of Nepali Buddhists (mostly of the Tamang ethnic group), there are no leakages about rapes or sexual assaults done by Ram Bomjon, as there are about other gurus who are misusing their authority and admiration of their devotees. Instead, his strange hobby is to let his female hostages raped by other men from his entourage, like Darshan. So how it is? Is he homosexual, as a few of his followers had been guessing in 2011?
I know, the question is very irritating to those who are still on the side of the cult, and did not realize they had been fooled. I was like this too, after all, I was one of his main propagators, writing many articles about how pure, how ideal Yogi he was, even convincing people who had doubts… If I did not happen to be one of his violence and torture victims in the long line, I would be still trumpeting around his Grace, Blessing, Mercy, Holiness…. Yet God had wanted otherwise….
So back to sex and Maitriya Guru (his current name). Is he really a celibateur, as his Sangha is claiming to the wide folk, the crowds in the West and East, to the illiterate Nepali villagers?
No. I must deeply disappoint you: you (we) all had been fooled!
Already as early as 2011, many of his nearest Committee members and Nepali Sangha in surrounding villages and towns knew that Bomjon was keeping in his compound a girl, a beautiful nun Bishnu (nun name Palchen Mo), who was coveted by many male visitors on the site. She had a special access to his hidden residence inside the jungle, where only a few people were allowed. The relationship had leaked out and ashamed Bomjon’s family, especially mother, as obviously, locals had been mocking them about the “Tapasvi” (Ascetic) having an affair. This was one of the reasons that they started to have discussions with their famous son, asking him not to keep female “helpers” in the jungle, but replace them with males. Bomjon did not care, instead turned his followers against his family to get rid of their nagging…

But the other issue is even more open, and actually not a secret anymore – among Maha Sambodhi’s (other name) nearest followers. Even Western Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha branch-leaders like Kim Nguyen, Ivy Jugoa or Andrea Good know about it. The truth is that Bomjon, already around 2011, when he was officially “still sitting in “ascetic silence” to perform for the crowds and cameras, had started a sexual relationship with a Nepali girl from India’s Darjeeling, Dipshika.
The girl’s aunt, Usha didi (sister Usha), was a long-time devotee of Bomjon, and stayed in the compound. There were rumours that she could hardly stay in her village because when all her family had died, including her husband and sons, people started to look strangely at her. The house of Usha didi was in Mirik, a beautiful lake-side town in Darjeeling, and it was there where Bomjon had been regularly (yes, even traveling sometimes with his Western followers, like Kim Nguyen from the USA) visiting his lover:
“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.” A Girlfriend, pregnancies and miscarriages (Dharma-sangha.com)

Not that a marriage could be not held. But Bomjon does not like publicity about his intimate life. He is a man who divides private life from work. And his “work” must show him as a pure Ascetic, who is not only promoting vegetarianism, but even did not eat for prolonged times (which had been already proved to be a false claim). His fame a name is based on the Buddha like asceticism, and money would have stopped to flow in if the crowds of worshippers learned the truth:
“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 (whether tantric or kamasutric), a lot of the followers might be lost.” ( A Girlfriend, pregnancies and miscarriages (Dharma-sangha.com)

She had dropped from school in 2012 to join her famous brother. Source: Halkoriatimes.
With all the destructive publicity that people like Weinstein got, after his sexual affairs shed light, Ram Bomjon precisely knew that this is a thing he should keep a deep secret. At least till a time when he becomes the God of Nepal, and powerful above the crowds, so much that he can actually do anything, and still would be worshipped. This time had started to unfold in Nepal this year, when in the interview with Setopati, his followers had not only admitted that Bomjon had practically initiated the 2016 death of his sister Manu, but they have even boasted about his power to do this:
“‘Guru’ took the ‘internal action’ not physically but using his divine powers, the follower claims. The follower adds Bomjon’s elder sister has also faced the wrath of ‘internal action’. “She later died a painful death.” (State must watch Bomjon, Setopati)
We are nearing a time when Bomjon’s sexual affairs can come out, and his child, born in 2015, presented to the world. Because, yes, according to insider sources, he not only had a long-time relationship with Dipshika from Darjeeling (who moved to Bomjon’s private compound after 2012, obviously), but he even has a child. The sources (I., K., R.) tell us that the whole thing is but not a classical secret love-story. It is much more Bomjon-style (e.g. brutal and immoral) than it looks on the surface:
First of all, Bomjon did not have only one lover. Far from that. According to those who lived with him, he had kept a group of girls for his sexual needs, among them the above mentioned Bishnu (who comes from a nice village near Ratanpur, Lal, and knows Bomjon from his earliest “Ascetic” years). People described that from time to time other girls had been brought to stay with him during the nights.
I myself remember Binu telling me with great shock that Bomjon’s tough inner core, called “The Committee” (Samiti) had an urgent meeting in their restaurant and discussed the Guru’s new order: he asked them to urgently bring to the Halkhoriya Jungle 5 virgins. I even wrote an article on my previous website, Halkoria.myewebsite.com (now closed) titled “Five virgins for Dharma Sangha” detailing the story. This was far back in the spring of 2011. And Bomjon’s followers had been celebrating his official ending of his “six years of meditation” much later, in May-June 2011, in a lavish festival called Mahadarshan!
But, having been his devotee and admirer back then, I was still apologizing him and doing that typically cultish brainwashing as his Sangha is doing it now: “You cannot understand this, but this is just a play of Guruji, a testing of how far you would go in trusting him!”. I was so succesful to convince anyone that Guruji continues to be pure and a celibate, that Binu put back her posters of the Buddha Boy on her walls …I have no further information about the Five Virgins, for that humble reason that I was not interested to fuel and spread gossips which would harm his name.
His current followers are just doing the same now. I can understand this, and have no resentment against them. But now, when I know the truth about Ram Bomjon (maybe not full, but at least what is based on my own tragic experience), I feel I have to share it to warn people that they are being part of a very big hoax, a scheme which totally manipulates them to bow and give all their savings to a guru who is someone very much else than they had thought for years!
According to one of the nearest sources K. at one point Dipshika, Bomjon’s “first wife”, whom he never officially married, had enough of seeing new and new girls coming and going in his room.
She took a rifle from Bomjon’s room (Did you notice? Yes, a rifle! The most natural object in the room of a meditator on World Peace!), according to the witness, went out of the room and turning the rifle to her head (she apparently even knew how to handle it! Another surprise!) she told she was going to kill herself if her Buddha Boy partner did not stop inviting also other girls in his room at night. Allegedly this made Bomjon stop to have lovers, at least, we can imagine, not in front of Dipshika.
Now, we cannot know what happened in closed doors between the ‘Savior of Humankind’ and the young girls staying overnight. If I was still his follower, I would go into my ends to explain that nothing sexual, but they had probably only meditated together. I was convincing myself with this tale when it was so obvious that the beautiful and kind nun Bishnu was going to him regularly and staying in his place. But the sources tell more: Bomjon actually made children to at least some of those lovers! And not only that. Soon after they got pregnant and stayed a few months with a growing belly, Bomjon sent them to artificial abortions.

Abortions in Nepal, especially of female embryos, are forbidden, if the reason is not medical. But when you have money, everything is possible in Nepal. I spoke with a woman in the “hard-core” Sangha in 2011 in a village at Halkhoriya. She told me she was sent to artificial abortion when her Bomjon-follower family had learned that her child was to be a girl! The tragic in this in this is double-edged, as many times they pay huge money for secret doctors and clinics, but the embryo is finally a boy. But where was all that “compassion with all living beings” among Maitriya Guru’s followers, when they were ready to discard female embryos, just as quite a lot of families do in Nepal and India? That conversation made me think deep…
So yes, many girlfriends of Ram Bomjon got pregnant and were sent to abortions. One Western follower recalls how he always saw Dipshika pregnant, and then a few months later again no belly, but there was never a child. This had been repeating a few times when even fanatic devotees had been starting to ask questions. Needless to say, Bomjon never explained any of his behavior to his followers, their only task was to take orders, not to ask questions. But at one point, still the beginning, some followers were making rumors about Dipshika staying overnight in the Guru’s rooms (he has many branches in Nepal, staying from time to time in Sindhupalchowk, Sarlahi, Sindhuli and eve back in Halkhoriya).
He then made a mini-announcement (e.g. just for the core Sangha, not for the wide public!) that from now on they should consider Dipshika his wife, and take orders from her as well. He told them they had to call her “Guru Ama” (“Guru Mother”) out of respect. “Guru Ama” in Nepal is used for elder or very respected, usually celibate spiritual women, or sometimes very respected grandmothers. Or was Bomjon trying to beget a child who would be another “Guru”? It was not clarified.
The weird thing is that when Dipshika got pregnant the second last time (after maybe five or more abortions), the Western devotees who had been that time still led by Andrea Good, Kim Nguyen, Ivy Jugoa and some others, had got excited that a “New Christ” or “New Buddha” was going to be born. They even planned a special visit of Nepal just for the celebration of the Holy Birth! Buying many gifts for the newborn of their Guru, they had in fact arrived at the time when the baby was to be born. This “Bomjon-baby hysteria” had unfolded around 2014:
“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.” ( A Girlfriend, pregnancies and miscarriages (Dharma-sangha.com)
Ivan, the owner of the already closed-down Dharma-sangha.com website, had been still apparently half-way in, half-way out of Bomjon’s organization. He had been on the mailing list of the internal core of the leadership (practically formed around US-Japanese Andrea Good, – Jyampa Dolma), where some of the “classified news” had been exchanged:
“The email of Mrs Andrea Good
“Dear Ivan, Jyampa Kidwen, and Semyon,
I just spoke to Jyampa Yeshe to ask him what Guru said at the meeting on Friday, May 9th, …
Then I asked what Guru said about Guru Ama (Nyanchen Mo).
Jyampa Yeshe said that Guru had announced that Guru Ama was his wife and that she is now pregnant. But he wants us to keep this information only for trusted members of the Sangha and not to announce it on the internet. So, this is what has been shared, and I feel we are at peace.
Om A Hum Mahen Yana Guru Pani Siddhi Hung
(The Wayback Machine link used in the article had been disabled, apparently as part of the well-known censorship drive of Ram Bomjon and his cult to delete balanced information from the Internet about him. We are working on solving the problem.)
After the announcement, to their disappointment, the hard-core followers have learned that Dipshika had aborted! What an unholy ending. I think that these long-time active followers had been not told the full truth: that Dipshika had not aborted naturally….But during that time an US devotee K. had a phone call through and interpreter with Dharma Sangha, when he complained to her that all these babies had been dying because there was some evil witch who was harming them:
“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.” ( A Girlfriend, pregnancies and miscarriages (Dharma-sangha.com) At this point the owner of the now closed-down Dharma-sangha.com website still thought that the abortions had been natural miscarriages. In his later articles he had corrected it.
When these witchcraft accusations started directly from Bomjon, it alarmed me. I was also branded the stigma of a witch by him, similarly as Mata Ani, the Spanish victim and probably many women whom he decided to harm. So who will be next? Now he could really provoke his followers, a much bigger group than back in 2012, to “just” and “rightful” anger, when he pointed out who was the culprit that his babies had died. The crazy in all this is that till today, no one from the large public or those thousands on his Facebook sites who admire him, know even the fact that he has a girlfriend and that he had any babies at all! As I know him, with expert manipulation with crowd sentiment, he is able to even use the power of inducing collective hatred without actually clarifying the crowds what or whom they should be hating, and for what!
I was actually relieved when no news about any new “enemy” or “captured witch” came out from Bomjon’s inner circle, after all. But this is not a guarantee that in his secret places, dark jungles or strongly guarded houses he was not harming any victim. There is a fact that Manu, his sister, had arrived to visit him in 2015, when she was beaten to her head very brutally, so brutally that she never recuperated, and died after a prolonged suffering of brain edema in 2016. Obviously, no authorities had been involved. Who even cares? Bomjon is Nepal’s Buddha Boy, after all, the authorities should promote him, he would bring tourists and investments to the country. That some people die in between, that should not be a big problem. Witnesses, media can be always silenced…
But back to the itching topic of Maha Sambodhi Dharma Sangha and sex. Or marriage? Marriage ceremonies in Nepal are religious. Not everyone cares about registering them in the local offices called Nagarpalika. How could Bomjon do it at al, if everyone would start to criticize him that he was lying about his celibacy and “ascetic meditation”? So he had no choice but marry in secret. If at all.
There are some interesting points in these leaked out stories: for example, when the many abortions had to be made, a French couple staying longtime with Bomjon, had been helping him to smooth out the way. They had been accompanying the abortion-ready girls to Kathmandu hospitals, where, I suppose as Western devotees usually do, they offered money to do it “silently” and without publicity. As the French couple are running a few NGOs in Nepal and India, (apart from popularizing themselves through a brief and vague earthquake money-collection in 2015), they could have masked the necessity of the abortion for example as a case of rape, and their assistance to Bomjon’s girlfriends as a help to some villager girls from poor families who could not raise a child…
In any case, the presence of Westerners gives Nepalis a feeling of credibility and they do not think about foul play, but also, the presence of “Western money” is a great thing… It is just very sad that founders of an NGO which deal with children in India, are assisting in artificial abortions based, quite probably, on killing female embryos.
Bomjon’s child, who, if survived, should be around 2 years old now, is after all allegedly a boy…
