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?

Nithyananda Denied Entry to the US and Gets Visa Cancelled

“I’m not here to prove that I’m God; I’m here to show you that I’m a visa beggar.”

Paramahamsa Nithyananda, have you ever been in trouble with the U.S. immigration laws? I know, you will say something like “I’m grounded in Satya (truth) and the Vedic traditions. I just flow through this life with no resistance.” Nice try there, Sri Nithyananda. Do you remember your little mini tour to Canada in late March 2007? Sri Nithyananda! No, you cannot go into samadhi now. I didn’t bring any of those pictures with me. Sri Nithyananda, we just started! Quick. I have to think of something. I know, I will grab my notebook and make a sound of flipping through all the pages. frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp. (Sound of flipping pages in a notebook.) Sri Nithyananda, I have a stack of new hundred-dollar bills. Listen. frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp. Ah, thanks, there, Sri Nithyananda. I knew you would come out of samadhi. “I never touch money. It means nothing to me.” Thanks, Sri Nithyananda. I know that is the public face you put on, but there’s no one around, so you can behave like you do in private. After all, we have witnesses in 2007 when you held U.S. dollar bills and received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations as a deposit for the Montclair temple. Boy, did you get excited. “Arrrffffrrrauugh!” Oh, I don’t know that word in Gruntanese, but I imagine that it is not a good thing.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, let’s get back to that Canadian tour of Spring 2007. Remember, you came first to your ashram, in Duarte, California. You, then, lectured and did some cash-collecting program. Then you, Sri Nithyananda, went up to Vancouver, Canada where you did some more lectures and then another cash-collecting program. Then, your next stop was going to be in Seattle, Washington where you were going to give some more lectures and of course, do another cash-collecting program.

However, things didn’t go quite as you planned. On the way back from Vancouver, Canada to the U.S. by car (because you thought you would be able to go ‘under the radar’ through the roadside immigration point), some U.S. Immigration Authority Officer that obviously never did Nithya Dhyaan, wore your mala (rosary) and bracelet, or even watched a YouTube clip of you did the unthinkable. Sri Nithyananda! You’re going into samadhi again. Stop! Stop! Here. frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp. Listen. That is a whole stack of new thousand-dollar bills. Oh, you’re back. That was a close one. Did that government official cancel your U.S. tourist visa? Why Sri Nithyananda? Were you wearing Bermuda shorts, a loud Hawaiian shirt, and some funny sunglasses while in California? But, Sri Nithyananda, even for acting ugly in America, immigration people usually do not cancel tourist reasons for that reason. Oh, it must have been all that cash you were carrying, brochures, books, Nithya malla’s (rosaries), and your website that tipped off the authorities. Sri Nithyananda, do you know that the U.S. authorities know how to surf the web and find things? Perhaps they all bookmarked your site on Delicious. Anyway, Sri Nithyananda, if you are in the U.S. as a tourist, they really want you to spend money and see the scenery... not to make money and cause a scene. I guess you learned that one the hard way.

Sri Nithyananda, do you remember the day that this all happened?  Why it was April 2.  Do you suppose the U.S. Immigration Office extended April Fools Day (which is on April 1st) by one day in your honor?  Looks like the joke was on you, Sri Nithyananda.  Should we celebrate this day?  You know, kind of like a Boston Tea Party Jyanti?

Sri Nithyananda, did the customs person give you the respect of a true Paramahamsa? You, know, did he act bias to you? You know, the same sort of racist stuff you dish out to white people? (Stay tuned for a future post.) Was this part of your karma, you know what you did to all those white people, someone did back to you? I thought that custom’s official acted with prejudice. Wasn’t that a bit blatant, just kind of like the way you, Sri Nithyananda, act towawards others? Why that custom’s official even wrote in your visa “Canceled With Prejudice.” How dare he! Oh, I’m sorry, “Canceled with Prejudice” is a legal term that means not-even-someone-who-thinks-he-has-divinity-in-his-pocket will be able to overturn this ruling. Oh, and, Sri Nithyananda, what was the custom official’s excuse? Because you were here for ‘holy’ business purposes and were not here as a tourist. Sri Nithyananda, you were busted! Get used to it, kid. There will be more times like this ahead.

Wow, that must have come as quite a shock. After all, Sri Nithyananda, you claim that you can do just about anything; you know, being so godly and all. I mean anyone that can do mass ‘enlightenment’ and proudly say that you’re the avatar of Lord Shiva, Lord Krishna, Devi Minakshi, Lord Ayyaapa, Lord Subramaniam, and a host of other deities could surely get a simple entry into the United States? Maybe it was because you were not wearing Bermuda shorts, a loud Hawaiian shirt, and some funny sunglasses. You know, you really should try that sometime. OK, if it’s cold, some blue jeans.

Now, Sri Nithyananda, since you do all these predictions like how my house will be the epicenter of a 2012 disaster and everything, why couldn’t you at least predict that this immigration official was not going to let you in? If you did that, you might have been able to let those poor devotees in Seattle, Washington enough time not to run all of those costly adds with you big picture on them or rent that big over-sized hall. I bet that hall echoed in your empty promise of being there for them. I imagine, Sri Nithyananda, that those devotees had to hang around the hall all night to tell other potential donors that you were on an extended vacation in Canada. Sri Nithyananda, were you skiing or moose spotting in Canada, eh? Sri Nithyananda, if you can’t even get a visa and predict that you would be denied entry, does this mean you will not be able to get me a new bicycle, a skateboard, or a drum set... or even a winning lottery ticket? Sri Nithyananda, am I wasting my time with you?

So tell me, Sri Nithyananda. With all that time on your hands up in Canada, what did you do, eh? Sri Nithyananda, Sri Nithyananda, Sri Nithyananda! Dang, samadhi again. frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp. Listen. This is the sound of new ten-thousand-dollar bills. No response. Fiddle-faddle. OK. I’ll have to do this one from memory. Yes, I remember now. Sri Nithyananda, you had all your big wealthy influential devotees fly up and pamper you. Wow, we have a VHS video of all of this. Let’s see what happen. There you are meeting all of those people. Sri Nithyananda, you sure look worried... you’re barking out orders to all those people... “Call your Congress Representative!” “Contact your Assembly person!” “Your Senator! Call her!”... and so on. Wow, Sri Nithyananda, you look like one of those people in the disaster movie that crawls over everyone to be the first out of the sinking ship or something. Sri Nithyananda, do you know how to swim? I didn’t think so. Except in bed, of course. Why you, Sri Nithyananda, were so desperate, you even asked white people to help you. Man, that must have been an all time spiritual low.

Ah, Sri Nithyananda, you’re coming to. Don’t worry, after all that begging, Divinity decided that you were now qualified for a religious visa. You were able to return to your ashram and go on with all your big, big, big plans. And, everyone lived happily ever after. Well, not really. But, you promise a make-believe-world, so it's OK to say that.

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.


  1. And now he is bringing into the USA his Indian accomplices on a religious visa. Or are they on an Entertainer visa? You know, like me, Orange Clowns? :D

    What about Nithyananda, is he planning on applying for a Green Card? The R1 Visa allows you to be in the US for 3 yrs + an extension of 2 yrs. After the 5 yrs are up, you have to be outside the country for a full year before reapplying. Was he in India for a full year in 2007-2008? Or is the 5 yr period still active?

  2. It is time to call your Congressperson / FBI about this conman defrauding donor, ensnaring our youngsters into servitude.

    It is time that we inform the news media about him too. Tell it to the LA Times, NY Times, local Indian/Asia community news. Please sent this block and with other info on the web to the newspapers. Write to and other online media too.

  3. Yes this is true! I am wondering what explanation Nithyananda and his ashramites gave to all the people in Seattle. Of course they would not have told the truth, as it is too much to accept that this divine being was denied entry to the US. Not only did they cover the facts from outsiders/first time attendees of programs but this fact was hidden/efforts were made to cover up this fact from all ashramites and insiders even.

    Even if ashramites asked where Nithyananda was during that period, they were asked to SHUTUP and not ask questions. Though the intend of asking was concern for Nithyananda's well being and not mere curiosity. There is all this sweet talk about being one big family within ashram and then when something like this happens, are'nt family supposed to stand together in support. But how can Nithyananda let this information out to his ashramites, probably they will stop believing He is God then. So he asked "all the DOGs to stop barking and asking questions on the same". Mind you, the word "dogs" was used by Nithyananda himself to refer to his ashramites!

    And to all the people out there who think that Nithyananda's is all nice and its his people and foundation that are at flaw; YOU are totally mistaken!

    Not a single cent moves anywhere without his prior permission. Not a single devotee who is not allowed to reach him/talk to him happens without his consent. He just uses his ashramites to behave like the bad guy/bad cop. They(ashramites) have been specifically taught to cover up for him and take the blame on themselves. This is their duty to take care of his reputation, you see!

  4. I know this incident. I was a volunteer here in Seattle. The ashramites just lied to us and kept this truth. Some people here knew about it.
    These guys are a bunch of liars.

  5. The local organizer & acharyas (they were also extended ashramites) didn't know what happened in Seattle - they were surprised when I asked them about it. I don't know if they were ever told the truth later.

    Nithy can't get his own visa, but he said he could help an acharya couple from San Diego get their green cards. The couple were already inline for the green cards and was waiting for their number to come up. What a secretive liar.

    I agree that we need to focus on his deception to defraud donors or to entrap young people into servitude.

    Unless rape is involve, Nithy's sexual exploits is a scandal, not a crime.

  6. Hi Orange Clown, Nithy did not come to the USA in 2008 as far as the public is concern. I wouldn't know if he was in secretly. lol

  7. There needs to be a federal investigation into how the donation money is being used.

    We need to send a mail to the concerned authorities.

  8. Blue Clown, do you know what authorities to write to? MAy be IRS for tax fraud, INS for immigration fraud. Which agency overseas charities? Do you know? If you do, please post and write,

    Also, we all should ask LA times to investigate this. It is right in its backyard.

  9. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Tomorrow's blog post will be dedicated on how to notify the IRS, FBI, ICE (Immigration) and other authorities. There will be links with forms and lots of info. Stay tuned.

    Jai Maa.


  11. It is Nithy & his inner circle that is sleepless about the FBI for public fraud and tax cheat. I am filing reports as soon as I find out best way to report charity and tax fraud.

    I already wrote to one Indian paper. Will keep writing.

  12. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Hi ANON (in all CAPS), thanks for the tip. We'll be extra careful. If you can wait until tomorrow, we'll show you step-by-step instructions on how to report suspicious activities to the FBI amongst other authorities. So, you could report this blog site (probably already being monitored by the FBI) or perhaps other activities like organized fraud, misuse of tax deductible charity status, physical and mental abuse, child abuse (especially in India), illegal immigration rackets... oh, this is a long list. Just stay tuned. Everything will be cool.

    Jai Maa.

  13. To the Anonymous Person who talks about this site having slander:
    In order for anything to be slander, it has to be a lie and it has to be done with malicious intent.
    Neither of these applies to this site.
    Everything posted on this site is absolutely true information, as I can attest to much of it myself.
    Also, I don't see any malicious intent as I've read the comments of the person writing the blog and it clearly says that They simply want Swami Nithyananda to reform himself and not do bad things to people and their lives.
    In fact, the blogger is very respectful and refers to him as 'Sri' or 'Mr' Nithyananda.
    Hopefully, the FBI WILL check out this site and put an END to all of NITHYANANDA's shenanigans.
    This blogger should be rewarded for saving the lives of future people who would otherwise be trapped and for having the courage to speak out the truth for the benefit of humanity.

  14. I don't care two hoots for nithya but isn't all this just speculation? I mean, who saw the cancelled visa and what concrete proof can we see?

  15. Many of us did see his cancelled visa. When required we will testify..

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.

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.
