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?

Paramahamsa Nithyananda Revises Vedic Holy Day Plus Bliss Bites Back

Nithyananda, the Father of All Renamed Vedic Traditions

Paramahamsa Nithyananda, we have to be honest with you. We really don't know if you are a real Paramahamsa or not a real Paramahamsa. Actually, we really do have our doubts that you are a Paramahamsa, but we know when we search Google for 'Nithyananda Paramahamsa' we are only at 88. I know that is a bit low, Paramahamsa Nithyananda. After all, we have several no. 1's and many top tens in Google. Even just plain old 'Nithyananda' without the Paramahamsa title, we usually come in the top 30. So, out of respect to Google and a little bit of respect to you, we will call you Paramahamsa Nithyananda for this blog post. Hope that is OK with you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda, as I write this blog, it is still November 12, 2009. Why isn't that a special day in your Nithyananda Order, Paramahamsa Nithyananda? Didn't you call that Maha Parinirvana Day? Why you will say "Yes". I'm so glad that we agree on something, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, for a change. In fact, you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda sent us an email announcing this holy day, and that we should celebrate it with you at the Vedic Temple in Montclair, California. Actually, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, you are probably flying first class in some airplane to Singapore, but we know that you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda are there in spirit. Paramahamsa Nithyananda, isn't this special occasion that you call Maha Parinirvana Day in recognition of the your father, Sri Nithya Arunachalananda Swami, who you claimed attained Maha-Samadi, the state of liberation?

Wow, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, that's really nice that you finally did something nice for your father. We have eyewitnesses that can testify how you abusively treated your parents even after you made the big time. It's nice to see that you treat everyone, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, equally. Equally bad that is. We remember how you finally started talking to your parents again, after years of the silent treatment, and how you then treated your parents as if they were complete strangers with distant-politeness. I'm sure all those diaper changes sure paid off, Paramahamsa Nithyananda. But, after 'working on' your parents and 'churning' them big time, it was nice to see that you actually went down and did all the last rites for your father. In fact, you even offered to put his soul back into his body, but you decided not to upon your mother's request. Nice.

So, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, if you have this special ability to put souls back into dead bodies, you must have some special miracle powers? Were you able to predict this death, Paramahamsa Nithyananda? Your very quiet again, Paramahamsa Nithyananda. I'm sure you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, were able to predict this, but you just played it cool, and let the grim reaper play his little leela (play)? Correct? Yes, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, we remember. You were giving a lecture to a captivated crowd that later would become a YouTube video, and with all those bright lights, fancy clothes, and make up, well, who wouldn't be a bit distracted and not notice your super godly powers telling you that your father just died. In fact, wasn't it just a mere human who received the news via a telephone call, then slipped you the note during your lecture? So, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, does this mean your father automatically attained Maha-Samadi, the state of liberation, or did he have to wait until you were tipped off and then you could liberate him?

So, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, can we conclude that any of your followers who die and have slaved their whole life for your empire must first have someone call the ashram to have them slip you a note so these dead devotees will be taken care of? Paramahamsa Nithyananda, is that part of your living 'enlightenment' pact? We don't know if this really seems like a guaranteed process. Seems a bit shaky to us.

And, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, if you say you can see all of those ghosts, why didn't your father's soul just come floating by during your lecture and say 'Hi'? He wasn't afraid that you were going to 'enlist' him in one of your red hot chili fire rituals? To be honest, if I died, I really wouldn't want to get that close to your red hot chili fire rituals either. Now, if you were roasting marshmallows, that sounds much more enticing.

And, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, could you tell us what your father died of? He seemed a bit young to be going into that next level. Did he take your "Health and Wellness" program? Paramahamsa Nithyananda, there wasn't anything else going on, was there? This was a natural death? We sure hope that.

Now tell us, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, why did you name this day Maha Parinirvana Day? Is this part of your 'enlightenment' marketing that if your devotees give you lots of cash and/or slave for you for a lifetime, then they, like your father, will get 'enlightenment' at the final moment?... after a phone call of course. Paramahamsa Nithyananda, is this how your holy business model is based on?

Paramahamsa Nithyananda, why isn't Parinirvana Day, or Nirvana Day is also a Mahayana Buddhist holiday celebrated in East Asia? Isn't this the day that Buddhists believe that Lord Buddha is said to have achieved Parinirvana, or complete Nirvana, upon the death of His physical body? And, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, doesn't this day usually come sometime in February? Usually the 8th or the 15th of February to be exact? And, to Buddhist, this day of Parinirvana does not come sometime in November? Wow, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, you must really be god to be happy to mess with this day and still claim that you're a caretaker of Vedic Culture!

Do you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, still have that big, heavy, larger-than-life marble statue of Lord Buddha in your Vedic Temple in Montclair, California? And you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, do not have any problems with recycling a holy day that is already in use? Does this mean that your father is now equal to Lord Buddha, and we can now expect to see a big, heavy, larger-than-life marble statue of your father next to Lord Buddha? Wow, I guess you, a self-proclaimed god, has the right to do such things.

And, what about other holy days, Paramahamsa Nithyananda? Are you going to name some special occasion of an existing holy day to mark your special version of Vedic Culture, you know, Vedic Culture as you know it? Paramahamsa Nithyananda, why don't you rename the day you were denied entry to the United States as Christmas? That way, somebody is not going to go and say that April 2nd, was just an extension of April Fool's Day.

I'm sure, Paramahamsa Nithyananda that all of your devotees will be glad to celebrate your Christmas in April, since all of your U.S. devotees are required to donate huge amounts of cash that they cannot afford, they will certainly get big refunds from the IRS from all of those tax-deductible write-offs.  Then you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, can demand that these people donate all their tax refunds to you on that day. If your followers do not refund their tax refunds to you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, you could then take away their 'enlightenment', and promise that you will not answer the phone or receive any notes on the day they die. But, then again, you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, wouldn't know the day that your followers died, unless someone slips you a note. But, don't worry, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, I'm sure that your followers are much too excited about their 'enlightenment' that they won't think about those little details.

I bet, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, people will be more than glad to donate to your mission on this new Christmas Day. You, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, can call it the 'rebirth' of giving. Yes, we agree, that would be the corrected meaning of Christmas, in accordance to the Order of Nithyananda, that now happens to fall on April 2 every year.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda's Bliss Bytes Bite Back
Paramahamsa Nithyananda, can you believe that a bunch of your email went to my spam folder? Shameful. I don't think email knows how special you, as an 'enlightened' healing master, really are. Anyway, inside my spam folder was an email with the subject line "Bliss Byte - Click of the Day". Why heck, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, the title of the featured YouTube clip was "You Only Remember People Who Disturb You". Does this mean, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, that all of us contributing to this blog are being remembered by you right now? Well, that explains all of the mystery phone calls with the 626 area code and no message being left.

Just think, all your poor devotees that wait so patiently for your attention and who take all those expensive programs, volunteers to be your slave, or become one of your acharyas (teachers) with the mandate to brainwash additional potential devotees, all they really need to do in order to jump in front of the line is contribute to this blog. Presto! An instant shortcut to your darshan (sighting). Our heart energy centers are unlocking this very moment.

Let's take a look at this video now, shall we? No, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, you don't need to pay us anything for the referral. It is on us:
>> Nithyananda's Disturbing Lecture

(Don't forget to rate and comment. Hee. Hee.)
Wow, look at your clothes. These are the same Osho clothes we mentioned about being a cross between ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band’.
And, yes, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, according to your Bliss Byte logic, we all are going to remember YOU for life times after life times. In this way, you, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, are truly immortal to us.

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. Osho (again) was the original one to use the term for - you guessed it - the day his father died. Of course, he made a similar fancy claim that his father died enlightened.

    Isn't one of the KEY reasons people continue to remain in the ashram with Nithy is that they believe he will liberate them when time comes to drop dead? Didn't he also claim he's going to be alive for what, 100 years? 150 years?

    Oh, someone I know has the footage of the actual ceremony where he again did some energy mojo on his father's dead body, just in case the enlightenment wasn't complete, ya know.

  2. Nithy's mother and brother are both in his Indian Bidadi Ashram. I wonder if they are aware of Nithy's tall tales about his 9 years of wandering on foot sleeping wherever, and about his calendar birthdate.

    Mother may be too old to know - I am giving the benefit of doubt to the old lady. Brother? The brother was handling the money in the Himalayan Yatra in 2007. His brother is complicit in the scam too?

    By the way, have you read Nithy's official biography? it is full of fantasy stories to be explored. They will sure make some fun reading here.

  3. I find it very difficult to understand why Nithyananda has to liberate his fathers dead body. I remember seeing the video in Acharya training where he gave energy darshan to the dead body to give it enlightenment.

    Are you making a dead body enlightened?

    Also why only dead people get enlightened in your organization. Its easy because no one can test their enlightenment. Can you please tell us about any living enlightened person in your organization. Please don't else it will be a mockery for him/her.

    The fact is that in the entire Nithyananda foundation there is not even a single person who is enlightened.

  4. From one Clown to Another:

    Hey man, don't forget the ones now Living Enlightenment (capital E - it's important, because it is Special and Godly after all).

    Don't you remember those ashramites who became so enlightened that they stopped wearing their glasses? Hahaha

  5. may be a good place to send some Nithy facts in India.

    They run similar stories on other godmen and false avatars. Here is an example

    It seems many of these holy men all have very similar business models: An army of slave volunteers while demanding huge donations for programs or blessing. Spending a little on charity for public relations, courting public figures.

  6. You know what's also interesting? In Hindu tradition, sannyasis are always buried, not cremated, because they are said to have no attachments to their bodies (they symbolically do their own last rites - Viraja homa).

    If Nithyananda did the Viraja homa for his father, and gave his father purna sannyas, at that point there should no longer be any need for cremation.

    So why did Nithyananda need to cremate the body, as done for normal non-sannyasi people?

    This possibly means there were still samskaras or attachments which needed to be destroyed, for the Atman to be fully liberated.

    But according to the Upanishads, don't the subtle bodies (karana sharira) carry samskaras (memories), which lead the Atman to re-incarnate? So how were those memories wiped out?

    This contradicts the claim that Nithyananda's father became enlightened just before death (which I think is the official story?)

  7. Holy men demanding money and running charity is all fine as long as they don't ruin families!!! Lets focus on Paramahamsa Nithyananda; He is the "divorsing guru". Look at his strategy for NY/NJ. The coordinator , Sandhya, goes to any extend to flirt with men esp. married men and creats tension in otherwise peaceful families, creating situaions that culminates in separation. Isn't this brutal?

  8. Nithy running charities? What charities? It is no more than a PR sham.

    Nithy may be a divorcing guru. This does not excluded his crime of financail fraud. Selling enlighenment for $6000 USD. He is cunning enough to change the Living Enlightenment program name to Inner Awakening this year. This help prevent lawsuits from those who realized they were not enlightened after all.

    By the way, Sandhya's flirtation with married men may be her own doing, not Nithy's order.

  9. Last 2 days no surprises(articles).. Its not fair..... Please...

  10. Someone I know still goes to the temple in Montclair. This is what I heard from her.
    Nithyananda has received several life-threatening mails (both regular mail and email) which match the profile, style of writing and content of this blog owner. They say the blog owner identity is well-known given the blog content and references. They seem to know who it is. They are pursuing legal action is against the blog owner for the life threatening mails and for the content of this blog. A threat of physical harm that they have received they say is a very serious crime. They are expecting imminent arrest of the blog owner. Although the identity of this blog owner is well known to them, it needs to be legally proven it seems. They have a subpoena in motion to identify and take action against the blog-owner. Some 223 (or some such number) both criminal and civil violations have been identified and listed against this blog owner. They have listed crimes of serious nature and it is believed that these crimes would warrant arrest once the identity is confirmed by the blogspot site (is that google?). There is talk that there is also room for class action by various disciples and devotees of Nithyananda on many of these counts. Based on what I am hearing, I am suspecting that there will be multiple lawsuits on these counts. There seems to be some pretty serious actions taken on this front.

    Regarding me, I reserve my comments on your site and on Nithyananda. (Don't want to get caught in this crossfire). That is not important here. I felt like letting you know.

  11. Om Namah Shivaya,

    This is in response to the thinly veiled threat that has been ‘meted out’ by one of Nithyananda’s henchmen, Wow, that's pretty threatening. And the poster says that he or she is just a 'messenger'. I don't think anyone will believe that.

    So, Sri Nithyananda cannot make a miracle and stop this blog? Then it looks like Sri Nithyananda has to resort to lies and lawyers... and with this combination then he hopes that the law will believe him. Wish him luck. But, Sri Nithyananda forgot the other ‘L’ word that will go against him and that is ‘libel’, not to mention several other charges that will be filed against him and his organizations.

    Sri Nithyananda is welcome to try to stifle the Truth by trying to shut down this blog. But, Sri Nithyananda must understand that there are so many people that he has defrauded and so many families and lives that he has ruined that there could be a long list of people that really would like to see him stopped. So, Sri Nithyananda thinks that all of his problems will go away once this blog goes away? Oh, it must be nice to be an 'enlightened' master.

    I wonder what all his close disciples think of him now? Seeing, firsthand, him so helpless to the point that he must resort to lies and lawyers. Must be an eye-opener.

    Sri Nithyananda, we see your bet and raise five.

    We will wait. Should be interesting. Stay tuned.

    Jai Maa.

  12. Can Nithy withstand the publicity of a lawsuit? His fraud and exploitation will be exposed.

    In India, he used dirty tricks to take down a local newspaper by having his local centers filing multiple small claims in hard to reach many small courts. He instructed the local centers each to file separate suits so that the reported would have difficulty attend the court hearings. He also asked his followers to send massive amount of junk mail to the said local newspaper with no postage (or with a Rupee or 2).

    In India, it seems that if a mail recipient doesn't pay the postage for mail with insufficient postage, the postal service would stop delivering mail.

    Wow, Swamiji, you sure have a bag full of little dirty tricks!

    Nithy was so proud of his devious tricks that he bragged about them during the 2007 Mission Training. He even proudly said, "We have many more *liars* (you meant lawyers? Swamiji?) than them..."

    What a funny slip of tongue, Swamiji! You sure many more liars than most newspapers.

    Swamiji, you are too funny. What dirty trick you have against this blog? It seems having your ashramites clicking "Report Abuse" doesn't work. lol

  13. Comments on Nithy videos are now managed. Any criticism of the video is not displayed. Nithy has become paranoid!

  14. Actually, the "report abuse" attempts are useless, because if you choose any of the options, Google allows Freedom of Speech, and bloggers are protected under the First Amendment.

    Even if you were to have a radical Neo-Nazi blog, there is nothing Google will do unless charges are filed against the blogger in court.

    If Life Bliss Foundation were to take initiative and file a lawsuit (I find a class-action suit by devotees improbable, but I am no legal expert), then it will tarnish their own reputation.

    The church of Scientology is famous for being very litigious, but they encounter enormous criticism and generally the lawsuits are about copyrights violation. There has been no such violation on this blog, and slander / libel will be hard to prove.

    Now if the creator of this blog (I have a good idea myself who it is, and I am no insider) did indeed send threatening emails, then it's a whole different matter.

  15. wow..what a threatening comment by so-called 'messenger'. We all know who you must be and I wonder if you are taught how to threaten too. Wondering what more you folks are trained into other than 'Enlightenment'

  16. Swamiji organisation follow all rules and regulations to the core....they have strict benchmark in usa nad other countries to follow all legal rules and have left no loop holes.......No doubt I heard that a big law suit is on the way for this blog owner.....and many devotees are also planning to file law suits for writing a blog without any proof or substance.....I dont know what will be the fate of this blog owner....surely he his ruining his own life.....may god bless everyone....

  17. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Hi Sri Anonymous, thanks for the hot lawsuit tip. We'll be sure to be extra careful.

    By the way, when you say that Nithyananda's organizations follow all the rules and regulations, don't you mean that Sri Nithyananda's followers follow whatever Sri Nithyananda tells you to do? We know firsthand, that's the obedience that Sri Nithyananda cultivates. We also know firsthand, that Sri Nithyananda only follows the rules and regulations that he thinks he must do, and ignores the ones he thinks he can get away with.

    Anyway, I know that you will dispute this... especially if Sri Nithyananda tells you to dispute this, so you will make things so much easier if you kindly shut up and give us a lawsuit. That will bring all of these disputes in the open and we can settle them with the certificate of the American Legal System.

    Look for more comments in our upcoming post.

    Jai Maa.

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.
