Venerable Śāntideva had a particular list of three attainments that I think would be particularly appropriate for him.

In reverence for the root gnosis of the heart, the dharmakāya,
for the ever present good law of the heart, the lotus terrace,
for the inborn adornment of the trikāya, the thirty-seven sages dwelling in the heart,
for that which is removed from seed and fruit, the upright key to the universal gate,
for all boundless concentrations, the sea of virtue, the root perfection,
I prostrate, bowing to the hearts of all Buddhas.

The individual in question has no relationship with any Buddhist order, but was subject of spurious comparisons to 'the Buddha' by various media outlets on the basis of speculation and gossip. For a factual account see the entry on Wikipedia. This thread is now locked as no purpose can be served by further speculation about this individual's purported 'attainments' or lack thereof.
