My community has been changed for the better due to “The Buddha boy”. Their will be obsatcles and many worldly detractors, but this kind of truth and beauty will certainly advance all conciousness. I fully expected this kind of detraction from true path. “The truth stompped to the ground will rise again.” Wait for the truth- it is coming. John Triplett, Charleston WV

Jason, are you really relying on the Nepali media to tell you the truth? It seems like you have been following Bomjon’s story for a while now. All I know is you or I won’t know who the guy is unless we ourselves go and meet and interact with the so called proclaimed ‘Buddha Boy’. You should know Nepali media can make a mountain out of a mole hill. Roshan Lamichhane, Indiana, USA

Just less than a month ago, I stated there will be more and more violence surrounding this Ram Bomjon boy. What else can he invoke in the world as his confusion spreads. Jason Thomas, USA
