During 10 month’s of Ram Bomjon’s meditation in the once pristine forest, thousands of pilgrims had poured into the Bara jungle to worship a 16-year-old boy hailed as a new Buddha. Many claim that Ram Bomjon, who is silently meditating Sitting cross-legged beneath a œpeepal tree, had not eaten or drunk anything since May 2005.

No allegation has yet emerged of Ram breaking his fast or moving, even to relieve himself during meditation.

Despite his protestations, ‘Buddha boy’ is famous. The popularity of the phenomenon is also because it resembles an episode in the life of the historical Siddhartha Gautam Buddha.

Bomjon was sitting beneath a peepal tree, in the same posture as the Buddha.

Market thrived in the once pristine forest, supplying pilgrims almost everything as well as a bus park, leaving ‘Buddha boy’ at the centre.

Ram who some people believe is a reincarnation of Buddha mysteriously disappeared from his meditation site at Ratanpuri area in Bara district on early Saturday March 11.

Hindu and Buddhist priests organized a Pooja praying for the return of the ‘Buddha boy’. Also seen in the picture is Bomjon’s mother Maya Devi (center) helping the monks in the Pooja. (Photo courtesy: Shankar Acharya)

On March 19, chairman of Om Namobuddha Committee claimed that Bomjan briefly appeared in a forest some three kilometers Southwest of the meditation spot, talked to committee members and disappeared again promising to return after six years.

According to the chairman, a team of seven people had reached there looking for the ‘Buddha Boy’ who reportedly vanished again after reappearing for half an hour.

“I left because there is no peace here,” Lama quoted Bomjan as saying. “Tell my parents not to worry about me.”

He also said that he has camped in an undisclosed place where he reached after walking for five days and five nights,” Lama further said. The committee members also screened a video which they claimed they had filmed during Bomjan’s brief reappearance. (Photo courtesy: Nepal1)

    It is a great relief that we still have teenage people like Mr Bomjon. I can only hope that he will bring peace and harmony in our country once again like Loard Buddha did once upon a time.
    Let’s not argue about his authenticity. Boy in his teenage can go and stay in the Jungle, sacrificing all pleasures of the so called modern world. He is definetly something.

    I feel the boy’s meditation &disappearence is arranged by masterminder’s who want to make him a Godman and to amass wealth similar to the higherorder Godmen in India-another spiritual corporate bussiness !

    yes, it’s truth that i faith on god, but i have never seen in live any chamatkar of god yet. everything i heard by others. it’s may be but if he is the real second buddha, he must show any chamatakr as god. and i also heard that without fooding , he meditated 10 months…. how could it be ? a common person can’t be alive without food 4 long days…… so he is genious meditator, but we must not believe easily b’coz it’s KALY YUG, so first of all we have to medically check up him that how could he got energy to be alive till the 10 month & then he have to show some proof of chamatkar as god………. if he could do all that……………………… he is real second buddha, no any comments……… & let him to do meditate with peace environment & plz nobody disturb him without his permission ….. & let’s pray with him to change our nepal into new nepal where will Never End Peace And Love……………. thanks

    Leave the lad alone.
    He will prove whatever he is.
    He seems to be completely sick and tired of blind followers who
    don’t know that people should have a peace and tranquillity for the meditation not the cameras and unnecessorily worshipping events arround.

    Real religion and blind faith are two opposite things. One reason people cannot be religious and find real peace in their life is because they readily follow any non sense that appears esoteric. Gautam Buddha always told his disciples to doubt his teachings and only follow their heart. The so-called religious people always do the opposite…they follow the crowd. No wonder why its so easy to delude and mislead we Nepalese ( socially, politically and religiously). Its really great that a 16 years old boy is marching in the path of meditation and truth seeking, but benig so crazy about him is totally a different thing. If he is any worth, he will prove it himself one day by what he can give back to people and out society. A group of religious fanatics need not do it.

    This universe is full of mystery and nothing is impossible. In thousands of years, among millions of people, one can take birth as a god, no matter where, when and how. Bomzon will prove it. We can simply wait and see. It is not time to make extreme negative or positive comments.


    March 25, 2008 at 1:38 pm

    I’m very glade to knowing that you have dedicate your life tom lord Buddha and i feel that there is no way to achieve ‘moksha’ rather than this.I pray with lord Buddha , may you get a place in Buddha’s home. and i request to the Nepali govt. that to provide fully security to Bomjon till his meditation aim will complete. Thanks a lot !

    Ram Bomjan,

    About him as a reincarnation of Siddhartha Gautam (Buddha), it is not possible, as Siddhartha himself told that the one who achieves nirvana, will not reincarnate. but Ram Bomjan could become another Buddha, as Siddhartha Gautam could realizes and said any human being can become a Buddha after achieving enlightenments just like himself (Siddhartha), who succeeded other previous Buddhas. And each new Buddha will overpass the previous Buddha’s strength and everything. So, i want to beleive that Ram Bomjan, possibly, as a new Buddha, since he can meditate without food and water which Siddhartha couldn’t do some more than 2500 years ago. But as Ram Bomjan himself told that his meditation is not for becoming a new Buddha, this possibilty is gone. So, it would be better if anyone can find out if he is a reincarnation of some previous prophets or a new prophet it would be more good but the people who follow the prophets also have arguements as some beleive that there can have a new prophet while other say no. So, Ram Bomjan as a new prophet, probably can’t be happen.
    But anyway, he is super human being and we should wait for the time to see what good things he can bring to the mother earth and obviously, to the human being.

    Here, i just tried to defend Ram Bomjan’s rights to do meditation according to his own wishes, as i am simply a nepali just like him and i beleive his meditation if achieved as he said, will surely bring good things to all human beings. So, lets not argue what he is but wish for successful completion of his meditation and just wait for the right time.

    There’s nothing impossible. He has promised that he will prove after six years. Then why should we not wait ?????????????????

    My says to Bamjan, we should belive “God has given him an extra ordinary power to beliveing the people God is every thing who can manupulate Bramand with out fear of any things (Like:Atom bomb/any types of armation or jungle ‘s animals)” it is just a begining of Kaliyug it is started from the nepal (Buddah’s Birth place) so such a massangers flow will be increased in the world.

    Ok , read prabi.
    That’s closer to the truth. not 100% but yeah, that’s nearly what it is about.
    Don’t worry about him not eating/drinking, its not miracle.

    Most of the people here/elsewhere have no clue about enlightenment/samadhi/nirvana. His meditation is to find out ‘Who am I’. Most probably he hasn’t found the answer to that yet, so he’s continuing what looks like a torture to us. When he knows who he is he will have become the Buddha. It is not reincarnation, just plain inquiry.

    What he is going to know is not something we can ever understand, only experience. Because answer he’ll get is above human mind. Enlightenment is an experience where things become clearer than the clearest, but even the enlightened can’t explain what goes on during enlightenment. Why? Because our mind is too underdeveloped to understand enlightenment.

    Ram Bamjan is a great meditatior of our time. I think
    When a person uproots the three poisions ( Desire, Anger and Ignorance

    ) Every thing is possible. We know
    We can not sit in one place for a while. atliste we should
    think how many days he have spent under the tree. instead of jealousey we should pray for his enlightenment. Don’t make any bad comment.

    Dear friends when we
    the eyes
    inner n inner.
    we could
    find alot
    of negetive action of the
    body, speech n mind. Then
    we could recognize ( WHO AM I )

    The question is who am i NOT

    who is Ran Bamjan.

    भगबानले मानिसलाई आफू जस्तै सुन्दर बनाएर जन्म दिनुभएको छ, आफूलाई पहिचान गरी साधना गर्ने मानिस हिजो पनि महान् थिय आज पनि हुँदै छन् भोलि पनि हुनेछन् कर्मानुसारको फल पाइने त हो , त्यहि हो सत्मार्गको बाटो पारगर्न कठिन हुनेभएकाले यस्ता कार्यमा कमै व्यक्ति लागेको पाइन्छ जो सवैको हीतकारक छ।यहाँले पनि धेरैकठिनताकाबापजुत धैर्यताकासाथ कार्यकुशलता हाँशील गर्नु भयो त्यो प्रशंसनीय छ।सवै मानिस धार्मिक बन्न नसके पनि पापी नबनेमा सवैकोलागि हितकर हुने थियो सवैले आफ्नास्थन बाट कामना र कोसिस गरौ हुन सक्ला जस्तो लाग्छ।

    i believe in god. i like love faith and hope.
    i trust everything but i sometimes dissapoint in some cause, truth is the life.
    the main problem here we r facing is not the truth, buddha never told that he will come in the life of human in earth, he struggled about to find the causes of death and he was also died just like of other Mahan guru, sant, mahant etc..
    if the people who come to do the meditation in a peace place we should not try to disturb him/her. we let them what they want to do, if somebody came to learn without starving then they cannot be the god. this is KALIYUUG no one god will survive and noone will be born, the people only want to know that if they speak the truth, honestily choosing the path then they will feel the peace in this birth not then they need to survive from everything… with thinking that they r unlucky in this birth.
    small boy who can be the guru in the future not the god, if somebody call him the god saying he is the recarnation of Lord Gautam Buddha this will be the false. Lord Buddha is the 9th birth of Lord Bhagawan Bishnu. after the last birth of him nobody will be born it has written in BBHAGWAT GEEETA/DEVI BHAGWAT/4-VEDH/……
    when the Kaliyuug will be on problem: means if the criminal do more crimes, if the people eat the flesh of people with the cause of starvation then A Handsome Man with Golden Sword With Riding The War White Giant Horse, appear to cut the head of criminal not the saint,mahant, religious people.

    so think what u r doing , what have u done, and writing these kind of truth words people cannot be the lord nor guru,
    Meditation helps people to increase everything in size and shape of body, you dont need eat or drink if u r doing the truly with taking the ideas from guru then u can be the one in the vast small World.
    the shridi sai baba is also the guru, lord mohammed is also the guru, jesus christ is also the saint, they r not god.
    they r god of being the truth, they speak the truth, they face the problem they died now people understand them lately and they become the God.
    the world is truth, face the truth and u can know how hard is the truth the bitter it has the bitter is truth,
    Take Care EveryBody!
