Dear friends,

I am sure many of you remember the "buddha"-boy. The one who was meditating under a tree in Nepal. The Nepalese boy named Ram Bahadur Bomjon - whose offical buddhist name is now Palden Dorje - spent many months meditating without food or water.  Of course he is not the first or the last who during long period of  meditation will  abstain from drinking and eating. But for sure, he managed to attract many thousands of pilgrims. By any event  he remains for many a fount of inspiration, leaving an open question to all of us. Is he for real? Are we witnessing the appeareance of a new bodhistava in the 21st century? Or is this just sensationalism or even a hoax? 

Below  there is a link for an interesting video about him, and also a second link to his official web-site. Maybe anyone here, who will watch the video, can explain what is the "sweat", which the Lamas refused to explain (on the video) claiming its a secret they canot tell. I am also pasting part of the speech he delivered, during an interval of his meditation.  One thing is for sure, he is beautiful and his words also. Read it and take your own conclusion. 

"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." 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 spiritual knowledge and spiritual
messages throughout the world. Spread the message of world peace to
all. Seek a righteous path and wisdom will be yours." Ram Bahadur Bomjon
