Buddha Boy Update: Ram Bahadur Bomjon Now Meditating in Pit

28 March: Ram Bahadur Bomjon, popularly known as the “Buddha Boy”, who stole the limelight after spending months in meditation, reportedly without food and water, has been found again, meditating inside a pit dug underground at Ratanpuri recently. Bomjon, who had started meditation under a Pipal tree in the village, had gone missing since March 11, 2006, and again reappeared on December 25 the same year. According to Inspector Rameshwor Yadav of the Area Police Post Nijgadh, Bomjon was inside the bunker-like square ditch of seven feet.

“We call it bunker,” he said, adding, “Although it’s seven feet deep, there is no lack of oxygen inside,” said Yadav, who claimed to have seen him going inside it from close range Monday (Mar 26). A police team, under the command of Yadav, had gone to the place after word of Bomjon being on underground meditation spread in the area. “His face was clean and hair was combed well,” Yadav said. According to him, “the bunker” has been cemented from all sides with roof of tiles. Even as frequent “hide and seek” were continuing, some locals recently spotted him in the local forest on 9th March. After his mysterious disappearance last year, his “disciples” had claimed that he had gone in search of a peaceful place for the purpose, as thousands of curious people began visiting him daily then. However, a few others had even termed it a ploy of his followers to earn popularity and money.

Indra Lama, a local, who has been deployed as caretaker for him since he began meditation, said the “bunker” was prepared as per Bomjon’s order. “After granting audience a week ago, he expressed his desire to meditate inside the ground; so we built it,” he said.By Upendra Lamichhane

    How THE SCIENCE explains the “fasting” and “meditation” of Ram Bahadur??? As you notice Ram Bahadur has really BIG AND LONG hair probably a wig made of natural hair EXTENTIONS (notice all other Indians have normal hair cut). Beneath the wig he puts plastic bag full with salt water or other nutritious substances. It’s very possible to pierce the tympanic membrane and to reach the throat via a thin tube. When he was 15 years boy he “meditated” under big tree for 4 months and he has lost weight because of this regime. He has a catheter to urinate and dippers for poop. Under the tree there was a tunnel (underground shaft).
    His brother enters the tree through an underground shaft to change the dippers. They collected a significant amount of money.
    Otherwise I know the meditation is the way to reach enlightenment, but ESPECIALLY this guy is a fraud. That is the scientific explanation you are searching for.

    He is an impostor. His brother collect visitor fee to see him. This fact is enough to understand whether Ram is genuine guru.
