Venerable Śāntideva had a particular list of three attainments that I think would be particularly appropriate for him.
नस्वातो नापिपरतो नद्वाभ्यां नाप्यहेतुतः उत्पन्ना जातु विद्यन्ते भावाः क्वचन केचन
There absolutely are no things, nowhere and none, that arise anew, neither out of themselves, nor out of non-self, nor out of both, nor at random.
सर्वं तथ्यं न वा तथ्यं तथ्यं चातथ्यम् एव च नैवातथ्यं नैव तथ्यम् एतद् बुद्धानुशासनम्
All is so, or all is not so, both so and not so, neither so nor not so. This is the Buddha's teaching.

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.
