The Nithyananda Dog and Pony Show

The Nithyananda Dog and Pony Show

Tip: Mouseover any slide to pause it. (Yeah, it loads slow, but it's worth it.)

Nithyananda's Criminal Trial Starts December 3, 2014. On July 2, 2012, a U.S. Federal Court found the Nithyananda Foundation guilty of Fraud with damages of $1,565,000 U.S.D. Peaceful Spirituality or Blood Thirsty Cult? Nithyananda's supporters are willing to die for his crimes. The untimely death of a Canadian citizen in Nithyananda's ashram.  An accident or murder? Nithyananda is not who he seems to be. Behind the scenes, Nithyananda's smile is quite different. Some like it spicy. Nithyananda is known to offer chilies, human hair, and marijuana seeds in his midnight fire rituals. Nithyananda the 'renunciant' was caught money laundering over $6,000,000 USD into his personal bank account. Nithyananda managed several hedge funds while in the U.S. on a religious visa. Spiritual practice? Tantric techniques? Or just plain sleaze? Sex Swami Nithyananda: Self-Idolizing and Cross-dressing Nithyananda's Healing: This won't hurt a bit. Your Soul is now mine; brainwashed and devoted to me. Nithyananda: Born on January 1, 1978 or March 13, 1977? Nithyananda: Born on January 1, 1978 or March 13, 1977? Nithyananda: Born on January 1, 1978 or March 13, 1977?

Make a difference! Dismantle Nithyananda's cult! We had Nithyananda in jail before.

Don't let Nithyananda get away a second time. Don't let Nithyananda have another chance to ruin lives.

A Direct Message to Sri Nithyananda: Stop This Nonsense!

Nithyananda, Stop Living in Lie-ament

Hi, there, Sri Nithyananda. After all your inane and empty threats, we're a bit tired, and we don't really feel like adding a bunch of humor to our message in order to lighten it up a bit. So, we thought we would do something differently this time and give it to your straight.

Sri Nithyananda, why are you lying to yourself and to your faithful followers? Why don’t you live a truthful life? Sri Nithyananda, why are you destroying your followers’ minds, thinking, free will, and identity? Why are you, Sri Nithyananda, making them well-frogs (in reference to Sri Ramakrishna’s story of the insulated frog that you often tell as your own story)? Why are you, Sri Nithyananda, using ghosts to over power the will of your devotees? Don’t you know that by doing this, you, Sri Nithyananda, will become a ghost? Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita:
Demigod-worshippers go to the demigods.
Ancestor-worshippers go to the ancestors.
Those who utilize ghosts, go to the ghosts.
And my devotees go to me (and are not born again).
Sri Nithyananda, we pray that the Lord will give you some good understanding and wisdom so that you can understand the Truth and make yourself free from all bondages and sins that you are committing which include destroying many hearts and families, husbands and wives, children and parents, etc. We are just amazed at your 'contract' with your devotees. The only ‘enlightenment’ services that you, Sri Nithyananda, expect from your brainwashed followers is that these victims serve and preach your nonsense teaching... and you call this ‘great seva’ (service) as required by an ‘enlightened’ person. You are keeping your followers tight in your grasp and abusing them as bonded labor.

Sri Nithyananda, you expect $8,000 USD from each devotee to take a three-month course on brainwashing nonsense of cult-psychology and cult-mentality. Even worse, you are creating this psychological disorder in many humble devotees of the Lord. Then, Sri Nithyananda, you expect that these victims must pay you an additional ten percent of their income to finance your cult agenda and psychological marketing of your rip-off courses and promotions.

Sri Nithyananda, isn’t this wrong? Because ten percent donation is mentioned in Vedic scriptures is to be set aside for charity and unbiased human development projects such as:
  • to help needy and deserving people who are in distress, poverty, and sickness.
  • to those that are preaching spirituality, spreading Truth, and demoralizing those people who believe in ‘divide and rule’ (which directly attacks the cause of discrimination of caste, color, race, gender, religion, class, etc.)
  • to those that are energizing the people who unite humanity by telling people that they are all part of Divinity. Everyone is a drop of the same ocean.
Sri Nithyananda, this is what these charity donations should be earmarked for. Sri Nithyananda, your use of donations include building grandiose schemes like stadiums and other ego projects and making a worldly name for yourself.

And, Sri Nithyananda, charitable service is not handing some check over to some Chief Minister in the Government that you can later capitalize for favors as you did on October 12, 2009. Charitable service is not a photo op session of a poorly attended eye clinic with pictures of your followers. Charitable service is not pictures of damage from a disaster and a village meeting afterwards. Charitable service is not a picture of a truck full of food to be donated, when you have a fleet of trucks coming into your ashram daily bringing in building supplies to erect your empire. The problem is, Sri Nithyananda, when you give out chump change, you're still a chump. And, there's been no change there.

A Message to All Seekers:
Unfortunately, Sri Nithyananda preaches something else other than Divinity which divides society, families, relations, marriages, etc. to use for his personal gain. This is not spirituality. As he is now, Sri Nithyananda’s causes and organizations do not deserve any of your time, attention, or donations.

Dear devotees, be careful when you go and see Sri Nithyananda. You may end up in a well-planned trap. And after being brainwashed, you may never come out of this trap. And when you realize that you have been fooled and cheated, it will be too late. You will end up losing your family, life savings, home, and become poor and destitute, destined for hardship in your old age.

Please be careful. This is our humble request. Do not be emotional. Use wisdom and do not replace your true identity. May God be with you.


Follow your dharma. Use your common sense. Listen to your inner-conscience, and follow the Truth. Come out of this trap, and escape from this fraudulent cult.

Day 3: Three days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.


  1. Great Job! Well Done. Keep up the good work. Let TRUTH (actual Truth, not Life Bliss Truth) Prevail!! A suggestion: If all the former volunteers and devotees got together and signed a petition about the wrong doing of Life Bliss Foundation, that would be a lawsuit waiting to happen.

  2. You are too kind too nice to the crooked little swami.

  3. It will be a good idea to convert this blog and all the abusive threats into a book.

    We can wait till Nithyananda Foundation finally comes to an end. Then we can publish the book.

  4. I don't think sitting and waiting is a good idea. Will only add a lot more victims. The authorities will not take any action unless a complain is filed officially. So, all this commotion will die out; just a waste of time here!

  5. To the acharyas and other volunteers who left:

    If you care for people you recruited into the cult, please inform them that you left and your reasons for doing so. Please send them this blog and the this Guruphiliac link:

  6. I don't think sitting and waiting is a good idea either. There will be more harm done to families and sincere seekers.

    Saving this blog into a book is a great idea. Perhaps there can be a section for personal stories of those who got caught up in this cult: changed our names, spent big fees/donations that may can ill-afford, given up our careers, too much time volunteering and alienated family and friends.

  7. Dude! Go get a life!If you want to save innocent people from Nithyananda then you should also have raised your voice against all the politicians around the world. They have been looting innocent people around the world. I can't believe idiots like you who have made it fashion trend only to go after spiritual masters. why don't you go after a fraud doctor, politican or somone. Don't give me the BS saying Nithyananda ruined my life. BTW I would have never read this useless blog. Someone other idiot forwarded it to me. Nithyananda or Sathya Sai Baba are doing enough to the community to be cheaters. If people are getting free food and medical facilities by the cheaters then please let these cheaters rule the world not loosers like you who keep writing these huge blogs.

  8. let us be more compassionate while writing blogs as we should remember all are humanbeings ..rather than being against everyone who is favouring sri nithyananda.....lets be compassionate to everyone...

  9. This blog is REALLY boring keep talking about the same OLD things...kind of like catty women..soooo you really think that anyone will continue to visit this site very much longer??? I mean after all you can only listen to the same crap once maybe twice,...Sri Nithyananda is long gone and living his guys are just bad bloggers and think you are onto "something" go get a life...did it ever occur to any of you that who's ever marriages broke up.... uh..maybe were on the verge of a breakup anyway??? etc etc..and whatever else you THINK went on behind closed doors...uh..pathetic...maybe this happened and maybe that happened...bad story writers..all hypothetical crap..ah..let's talk about spelling errors...oh yeah...that sounds like really good reading..blah blah blah...go sit on a toilet...and get your crap out that way...might be a bit more satisfying!!! yeah...that's's a wrap! print that

    Finally one [published] voice of reason. Look people, it is all well and good to band together because of perceived injustice or whatever it is you are angry about. But, before raging against the Machine, don't forget it is a collective consciousness you are also attacking. That consciousness contains human beings with emotions and feeling and beliefs. They have a right to those feelings and beliefs as much as you have a right to yours.

    To the creator/divorced associate of this blog:

    Think about how your/your friend's former wife must feel reading all this. Is she still devoted to Nithyananda? If so, are you not hurting her and causing her emotional pain by being so harsh? You label certain individuals "henchmen" and "diseased", forgetting that they are human beings who hurt just like you on the inside? You proudly say "Om Namah Shivaya", but where is your humanity (forget spirituality)?

    Because this anti movement is so young, I can see it is still very immature. You guys have NO idea what other large movement insiders have had to endure. I know. We seek resolution in our own lives first by coming to terms with the past. Let us bring healing to our own wounds before attempting to rescue others. It is better to focus on the Self as the world. Because it is.

    Disclaimer: Before I am accused of being a "henchman", I have a long personal history with new spiritual movements. I have seen more than my own share of inside dealings. I am speaking from personal experience with no agenda.

  11. I agree whoever left this cult should inform all whatever they know about foundation. I met few of them, they just say “Even though the way mission work is wrong the teachings are really good. We still have gratitude.” Because of that they don’t share anything. If the person is wrong how can his teachings will be right? Don’t just sit back and think that atleast I’m saved, its your responsibility to save your friends also before its get too late for them.

  12. My response to “Even though the way mission work is wrong the teachings are really good. We still have gratitude.”

    It is very dangerous as Nithy mixes in his big *lies* and his hidden agenda with some "really good teachings" so that his hidden agenda are more accepted.

    This is the trick many con-artist use! Beware.

    Nithy tells stories of blind devotion - often with distortion. Many of his "teachings" have hidden agenda - to enslave and defraud devotees for his own glorification. He sits on a golden throne with obedient slaves working day and night, recruiting and getting big donations for him.

  13. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Time for tonight's recap. Thanks for all of your the support. Yes, there are plenty of initiatives that can be done peacefully and legally to help bring justice and stop this cult and its fraud. Yes, a lawsuit is one possibility, but we don't think this is the best and most effective way. If we had to respond to lawsuit, then we would certainly reply in kind. Stay tuned for future blog posts that will address specific ways to become active in doing the right thing.

    Yes, we welcome others' experiences, and we'll soon set up a feedback link that will be able to send us your stories other than this 'post a comment' box. We'll be glad to post any personal story that we can verify that is being Truthful.

    Finally, there were three pro-Nithyananda comments, which we will post now. We were waiting to fully answer each one, but this will need to wait a few hours; it's late. But, stay tuned.

    Jai Maa.

  14. More about “Even though the way mission work is wrong the teachings are really good. We still have gratitude.”

    Remember Arjuna & Drona? When Drona chose the side the evil, Krishna encouraged Arjuna to fight against Drona. Nithy is similar to Drona with regard to those who escaped.

    Nithy's teachings were copied from Osho, Ramakrishna and ancient books. The "good teachings" is no his property. In fact, he implanted his hidden agenda in these teachings and corrupted them when it suits his purpose to do so.

    Exposing this conman is not causing any personal injury (if you are concern about gratitude), it only prevents him doing more harm to sincere seekers, destroying their families, depleting their resource and tricked them into slavery.

    Please think of the public good! Expose the con!

  15. Some questions for Nithyananda Followers,acharya's or the actual self claimed Lord - Nithyananda:-

    Some questions for you -

    1) There are different tier programs arranged by Life Bliss Foundation. The programs start at $$$ and go all the way upto $$$$. So,if Nithyananda's work was really spiritual in nature , why does the fee vary? Why cant he just spread his teachings with simple $$. This is like going to a movie in India. You pay more money,you will get the best seats in the theatre. Nithyananda and his acharyas give more respect to people with money. Its all about the Benjamin's baby!

    2) Why does he have to sit on a Golden Throne?

    3) Is he the God of all Gods? Why is there Maha - mantra in the name of Nithyananda?

    4) Why does he/his acharyas wear mala's made of gold? Isnt that materialistic?

    5) Why does Life Bliss Foundation get disclaimer papers signed by every attendee before a person attends the program? Are they afraid that someone will file a suit against them? Or is it just guilt making them follow this step?

    6) Did any of the other enlightened master's ever make his/her disciples wear mala with their own picture? In Life Bliss Foundation, you are not a true follower - if you dont wear a mala without Nithyananda's picture.

    If any insider can answer the questions without deviating from the actual questions, please do so.

  16. You are doing a great job exposing this on the internet. What we need to do is to bring this destructive cult to the attention to the authorities and the news media. This can proceed without a lawsuit. Please post the forms to report to the various authorities.

    Please don't let Nithy followers discourage you. You may well help them escape before it is to late. In future years, even those who protest about this site now would thank you for writing here.

    Personal stories of how one first get involved and gradually see the truth would be interesting too. It will make wonderful literature.

    Keep up the great work!


* * IMPORTANT * * After submitting a comment, SCROLL DOWN to see if your comment was submitted or not. Sometimes it takes two or three submits before your comment is submitted. Thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for your interest in posting about the Cult of Nithyananda. Please note, that low quality and incendiary comments will most likely not be posted or if posted, they may be altered. Comments should refrain from profanity (bad words) and using manipulative methods to convey your points. Comments should focus on the fraud and cult practices of ‘Swami’ Nithyananda.

In detail, this blog is about the abuses and fraud of ‘Swami’ Nithyananda and his cult. We want your comments to focus on this. Comments that tie in the cult of Nithyananda with other abusive cults or spiritual frauds such as the Lord of Destructive Cults, Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), known womanizer and mental torturer, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (Art of Living), convicted sex criminal, Swami Premananda, King of Mass Suicide, Reverend Jim Jones (Jonestown Massacre / The People’s Temple), village idiot and convicted child-molester, Sri Sri Selvam Siddhar Swamiji, a.k.a. Dr. Commander Selvam, mass-murderer Asahara Shoko (Aum Shinrikyo), cheap, plastic avatar, Bhagavan Kalki (Kalki Deeksha Movement / Oneness Movement; [O.M.] et al.), Jaggi Vasudev (Isha Foundation) (who overtime has fallen from good to very bad & uses dark siddhis), the epitome of greedy evilness, Scientology with its deranged nutcase founder, L. Ron Hubbard, etc. will usually get a pass. Although we do not want to deny your personal experience or beliefs, negative criticism about other gurus including but not limited to Amma, Satya Sai Baba, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (Transcendental Meditation [TM]), Paramahansa Yogananda (Self-Realization Fellowship), etc. would be best on other forums; not here. Criticism or comments that go against Paramahamsa Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Lord Mahavir, and world-recognized religions will probably never see the light of day. This is not an anti-guru or anti-religion blog. This is an anti-cult and anti-fraud blog focusing on our direct experience with the self-titled ‘Paramahamsa’ Nithyananda Swami.

* * NEW * * : You must respect the victims that have come forward. They have withstood false criminal charges, lawsuits, death threats, criminal intimidation, and heaps of humiliation. There's been no gain and lots of pain. The victims that have come forward don't need any more stress. Therefore, anything more than the first name and last initial of a known victim will not be posted 'as is'. Either it will be changed or deleted outright.

We welcome polite critics of ourselves and our blog. Comments that are pro-Nithyananda as long as they are written with the intent to have discussion, dialog, and understanding. For an excellent style, search for comments in blog written by then-supporter (but now defector) “Swamiji is God” (which Nithyananda is not). If you write in that style and intent, your comment is almost guaranteed to be posted. Pro-Nithyananda comments that are incendiary or damage-control propaganda will be: 1. Ignored (not posted) 2. Posted and ridiculed 3. Altered and ridiculed.

Please do NOT include an email address or a phone number in your public comments.
