only dharma can save the world

In the jungles of Nepal under a tree sits Ram Bahadur Bamjan, the “buddha boy”. He has spent most of his time in the forest mediating since 2005, and many claim he has don so without food or water most of the time? This mysterious boy born in 1990, now 18, has tens of thousands of followers who flock to see him when he makes rare times for talking.

Recently, on November 12, Ram Bahadur Bamjan came out of the jungles of Ratanpur, 100 miles south of Katmandu, and thousands of people traveled long distance to see him. According to Kamal Tamang, a Buddhist priest, on November 18, 2008, Bamjan is expected to address his followers and then retreat back into the forest. His official site says; Nine days of prayer and blessings will be conducted by Guru Palden Dorje from November 10 – 18, 2008.

In 2006, Bomjan said “there is no peace here” and that he would finish his six years of meditation in roughly 2012. 


On August 2, 2007 Bomjon addressed a large crowd in Hallori jungle in Bara district of southern Nepal. An excerpt of that speech:

Murder, violence, greed, anger and temptation have 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 (spiritual practice). When one doesn’t walk the righteous path of spiritual practice, this desperate world will surely be destroyed. Therefore, follow the path of spirituality 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.”
