Scientists in Nepal are planning to examine claims by a 15-year-old boy, hailed by pilgrims from across the country as a modern-day Buddha, that he has been meditating without drinking water for six months.

The story is from 2005, and I have never heard of it

Is this possible?

No. You can live without food for quite a while, but 6 months without water ? No way in Hell.

What ever Ram Bahadur Bonmjon is; he is not any kind of Buddah. He became as corrupt as the many cult leaders that have arisen through the ages.




In 2010, Bomjon was investigated for attacking a group of 17 villagers. Bomjon claimed that they were intentionally disturbing his meditation. However, the villagers said they were just looking for vegetables.[7][8][9][10] Bomjon claimed to have taken "minor action" against them with just his hands[7][8][9][10] after they had "tried to manhandle" him,[8][10] and stopped as soon as they apologized. However, the victims claim that for three hours he struck them on their head and back with an axe handle,[7][10] resulting in serious injury of one of the victims.[9][10] Bomjon refused to attend any potential trial, stating, "Do you think a meditating sage will go to the court to hear a case? I took action against them as per the divine law".[7][10]

In 2012 Nepal Police announced that they had rescued a Slovak woman from Bomjon's followers, but other reports claimed that she had been voluntarily released after media coverage of the kidnapping. Newsweek reported she had been taken from a hotel by two of Bomjon's men riding on a motorcycle and kept tied to a tree for three months and accused of practicing witchcraft in order to disturb the Boy’s meditation.[11] However another report claimed she had been kidnapped from a monastery. When she was released she had a broken arm.[12][13] A week after her release, Bomjon's siblings accused him of holding his brothers captive overnight, and beating his brothers and his sister.[14] ]Followers of Bomjon also assaulted five journalists and destroyed their cameras after they had recorded one of Bomjon's sermons.[12]

In September 2018, Bomjon was accused of raping an 18 year old nun repeatedly for nearly 2 years. During a press conference organized by women's rights groups, the nun also accused his wife of trying to keep the abuse hidden so as not to "attract attacks" on their religion. Supporters of Bomjon claim that the nun was in fact involved in theft, and had been ejected from the monastery.[15]

An investigation was opened in early 2019 after complaints from family members that four devotees had gone missing from several of Bomjon's ashrams.[16]


en.wikipedia.org...

I remember back when the story first was reported about the "buddah boy" and then years later I saw many videos of Buddhists including some of his ex members talking about what he and and his cult were up to in the region.

Yep. Old story. He was found to spend nights behind screen...where friends brought him food.

This story had an ending ...

Yeah places like Wikipedia are showing to be a hoax

Of course I don't believe them either way, may or may not be true

I remember a guy who could go without food by recharging from sunlight, crazy ey, but not outside the realms of possible, in fact gaining strength from the sun sounds like a good evolutionary step

There are people breaking the boundaries of what is deemed possible

Wim Hoff is a scientific marvel

Here's another article about this alleged buddha

There's been several threads on this chap, here's part of a linked excerpt from a thread I authored in 2019 titled 'Buddha boy' under investigation in Nepal over missing devotees'


A Nepali spiritual leader believed by his followers to be a reincarnation of Buddha is under investigation over the disappearance of several devotees, police in Kathmandu have said.

...The 28-year-old has a devout following but has been accused of physically and sexually assaulting some of his followers. Special police investigators have begun inquiries after the families of four devotees allegedly vanished from his ashrams.

...Bomjan has long been dogged by accusations of abuse, even as thousands of worshippers queued for days to witness his “miracles of meditation” deep in the jungle.

In September last year, an 18-year-old nun accused him of raping her at one of his ashrams. Dozens more have filed complaints against him alleging assault. Bomjan said he beat them for disturbing his meditation.

The Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha, an organisation associated with Bomjam, recently claimed fresh allegations made by a local website were baseless.

Here's the survival rule of 3 as I remember it.

3 hours without shelter in (extreme conditions).
3 days without water.
3 weeks without food.

Pretty sure 3 minutes w/o Air is one of the more important ones.

Survival without air wasn't in my reading, as far as I can remember. I don't think you could last much longer though.

Hopefully the guy returns to the eight-fold path and observes as many precepts as possible. Some observe the precepts only on full moon days(traditional) others everyday even if they are not Bhikkhu or Bhikkhuni... such a thing is not easy; for the at home hermit but manageable. The precepts walk the eight-fold path for the solitary; in communities then the 200 plus rules.

The influence of other religions and the cultures surrounding all religions change them over time(impermanence) all of that however is(not self) leading to a thicket of views or entanglement(suffering).

Ignoring the rddhi(super/supra normal powers arising from clear perception) due to practice speeds up the path to liberation wisdom/knowledge. Otherwise one can get entangled back into the thicket of path/not path views.(paying attention to false speech allows the arising of wrong view)

Mistakes on the path are many when it is narrow and hard to walk; the path well traveled and known is difficult to fall off of but there are A lot distractions from the sangha or community making it slow going.

Sticking to whatever it is that first struck you as AH HA this is it! Needs to be explored and ferreted out to it's end then surmounting that wall of that "attached self" to where it is only path with no self to be found in it or on it.

Sorry for the above but it is in hopes that all those involved with the topic get back to seeing their original intent; as therein lay the cause.
