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?

Backpedaling Keeper of Revised 'Truths', Nithyananda, Required to Embellish His Story (Again)

The Backpedaling Swami: The Official Stories of Sri Nithyananda are Updated, But Still Do Not Add Up

Hi there, Sri Nithyananda. Have you been reading our blog? "I'm a Paramahamsa. I do not bother with such trivia." Oh, I see, there, Sri Nithyananda. But, just want to remind you that even Paramahamsas and so-called Paramahamsas still need to answer to the Truth. Why, you couldn't even answer our five, little chronological questions about your life-story. "The truth requires no embellishment". Yes, we saw that was your response in your Parallel Universe blog where everything gets turned up-side-down.

Well, Sri Nithyananda. Call it what you like, but we couldn't help but notice a slight revision or even a tiny embellishment, shall we say, of your 'Truths' that you wrote on your official Dhyanapeetam website? Do you, Sri Nithyananda, remember how you use to say that you wandered for nine to ten years the breadth of India and Nepal? "Ah, hmmm, oh, yeah." Yes, Sri Nithyananda, you should remember all of that, for you wrote it in all of your books and we heard it over and over again in your lectures. Let's take a look. Here, in my copy of Glimpses of My Master, Nithyananda (first 'first' edition) in December 2005, you mention on page 83 that you, Sri Nithyananda:

“traveled over 30,000 kilometers over 8 to 10 years.”
In most lectures, we hear you usually just say that your wandered for nine years. So, we'll take nine years as the given default 'Truth' that has been accepted as your standard story.

But, wait, what's this here, Sri Nithyananda? On your website,, on this URL:

(also available with an attractive wrapper at this URL:

and then, click on 'founder' link to get the whole nested iframe experience)
we have this information:

Nithyananda would often meditate all night long in the cremation grounds of Tiruvannamalai, absorbed in the vibrant silence of Arunachala, and at the break of dawn, he would return home. During his teenage years, after a profound cognitive shift in his understanding through an encounter with a Siddha in Thiruvannamalai, the urge which he had since childhood, to leave home as a sannyasi, reached its peak. After completing his diploma in Mechanical Engineering at Gudiyattam, Nithyananda made the final resolve to set out on his spiritual journey as a wandering ascetic. He embarked on what was to be an arduous journey, stretching thousands of miles covered mostly by foot, over a period of 6 years, traversing the land of Bharat. From Tapovan in the Himalayas to Kanyakumari in the South, from Dwaraka in the West to Ganga Sagar in the East, Nithyananda wandered for several years in India and in Nepal, practicing intense austerities and studying with many sadhus.
Sri Nithyananda, did you see that? You wrote a 6, as in six years. Not nine, eight or ten years as you have done in the past. Wow, Sri Nithyananda, you seem so blessed that you even found a shortcut to your shortcut formula for 'enlightenment'. Wow, that truly burnishes up your credentials. We bet the line to receive your energy darshan is getting longer by the minute now.

Not to get side tracked, Sri Nithyananda, but we also found it interesting that on the same web page, you mention about often meditating all night long in the 'cremation grounds' which is the same as graveyard or cemetery right? Wow, of all the places to pick to meditate, you had to choose the cremation grounds. There are caves, forest, temples, riverbanks, rooftops, etc. Some yogis even chose train stations to do meditations. But, your choice place of meditation, Sri Nithyananda, is the cremation grounds. [Readers, please see our post, "Nithyananda Spreads His Tantric Bliss - This is NOT Lord Shiva" and "Nithyananda & Graveyard Enlightenment".] We hope that you, Sri Nithyananda, made it to the temple now and then to balance out your spirituality.
Back to your reduced years of wandering from nine (9) years to now six (6) years, can we call this reduction Nithyananda nLite™? Sorry, there, Sri Nithyananda, since we called you on your impossible timetable to enlightenment, we imagine that revising your past was the logical thing to do. But, now that you made the revision, we hate to be killjoys, but your story still doesn't add up. For the time being, we'll forget the fact that you were only twelve when you attended the polytechnic in Gudiyattam, Tamil Nadu, and were fifteen when even the Rajagopal Polytechnic College stated on their website that you left their school. But, we will hold it to you that you were just seventeen (17) when you left your parents' place to start wandering (Nithyananda Vol. 1, revised first edition, December 2006 p. 181, YouTube Video, "Biography - Paramahamsa Nithyananda" @ 7:57, YouTube Video, "Paramahamsa Nithyananda - Early Childhood Chronicles" @ 12:13). And, you make it a well-advertised 'Truth' that you received your final stage of 'enlightenment' on January 1, 2000, when you were 22 years old. Sri Nithyananda, this seems like deja vu all over again, but what is 22 years of age minus 17 years of age. Why according to my calculator it is just five (5) years of wandering. Not six (6) years of wandering. Now since you got your 'enlightenment' on January 1, 2000, did that means that if you started your wandering after January 1, then does that mean that your total years of wandering is even less than five (5) years? So, if you started your wandering in July, then that reduces your wandering to just four-and-a-half (4.5) years. So, perhaps, Sri Nithyananda, your revisions could use some revising?

Oh, Sri Nithyananda, maybe we're not being very culturally sensitive to this whole age concept of yours. We understand that in South India, Tamil Nadu to be exact, that when people turn a certain age, and then after a bit of time, they no longer consider themselves that age for they have past that milestone. So, if you had your sixteenth (16th) birthday in 1994, and after a few weeks, you could consider that you reached that age, and now you were 'reaching' the next milestone of your seventeenth (17th) birthday. In many western countries, they consider this 'going-on-17' just like in that song from the movie "The Sound of Music". So, if you started your wandering perhaps in mid January 1994, which was just a few weeks after your celebrated birthday of January 1, and then reached your 'enlightenment' on January 1, 2000, then voila! your revised years of wandering 'fit' your story. You Sri Nithyananda, are then able to fit six years of wandering into five years of living. Specifically, this means that you started wandering at 'age 17' and at age 22 in the year 2000, you achieved six (6) years of wandering. Amazing. Technically, you're off by a couple of weeks, but no one should really split hairs over that. And, best of all, your cash-donating-believers and cult-recruiting-acharyas (teachers) can go on believing in you, Sri Nithyananda, as being 'Truthful' after your revisions. Cognitive harmony has been restored.

But, wait, Sri Nithyananda, in your book, Nithyananda Vol. 1, (the second) first edition December 2006 (yes, Sri Nithyananda, as we sure your are able to remember, this is the revised first edition that you had to replace your recalled first first edition of December 2005) on page 177, you had placed a date, or more specifically, a year of 1995. Here is the sentence:
"Back in 1995, when he (Sri Nithyananda) was ready to leave home, no one knew who he was."
Ah, shucks. Sri Nithyananda, you did a great job of leaving out dates in that revised self-autobiography, but looks like you let one slip. But, now we know that your revised wandering years happened sometime in 1995 until January 1, 2000. So, that is at most five (5) years of wandering, but most likely just four-and-a-half (4.5) years of that carefree living.

So, Sri Nithyananda, would you mind if we add to your exalted titled of 'Enlightened' Healing Master and Backpedaling Keeper of Revised 'Truths'? We think there's a nice ring to that.
And, Sri Nithyananda, we're also all wondering which story are you going to revise next? Are you going to revise your wandering years from the already reduced six-years-of-wandering or are you going to change your start date of wandering from 1995 to 1994? We'll wait for the next round of embellished 'Truths'. In the meantime, Sri Nithyananda, perhaps you can set up an online gambling site to let your followers bet on which 'Truth' will be revised next. You can say that "All proceeds will go toward erecting a big stadium so more 'Truths' can be given and then corrected to even more people."

Sri Nithyananda, to help our readers understand how ridiculous your timeline and all of your events that don't add up really are, our friends at put together this handy graphic:

Guinness World Book of Record Holder: 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda as Youngest Polytechnic Student

Boy Genius so-called Swami Nithyananda Attends Polytechnic at Tender Age of Twelve
Summary and Update on January 21, 2010: The Rajagopal Polytechnic in Gudiyattam, where the self-titled Paramahamsa Nithyananda claims to have received a three-year degree, had on its website a picture of 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda and text claiming that he attended there from 1990 to 1993.  Problem is that little Paramahamsa Nithyananda was only 12 in 1990.  As expected, the Polytechnic removed Nithyananda's picture from its website after we posted this blog, but the text about Sri Nithyananda's alleged years of attendance are still there at the very botom of the scrolling Flash file.  (Do not worry; we have plenty of screen shots and HTML code.)

In addition, the graphic below nicely summarizes the inconsistencies in self-titled Paramahamsa Nithyananda's timeline including his 3-year degree at the Polytechnic:
(Click on Image to see the details of fraud)

Hi there, Sri Nithyananda. Wow, we need to thank a blogger called 'Transforming1' on November 23, 2009 from the Guruphiliac Forum who tipped us off that the polytechnic school associated with you is the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, Tamil Nadu. And, look, right there on their website:
Screen Shot of in December 2009 before Paramahamsa Nithyananda's picture was removed and replaced with pictures of the founders of the polytechnic.  (Source: )
Is a picture of you, Sri Nithyananda, OK, you have to wait about a minute before the Flash animation scrolls up but, trust us, your head pops out from down below and there are these words:

"Alumini of our college is feeding noon meal to poor and needy students."

[ Then an old, but dashing low-res scanned picture of you, Sri Nithyananda, creeps up from below the surface, just like in one of those Ed Wood horror movies. ]

"-As an Alumini,Swamiji Nithyanantha has donated magnanimously
Rs.100000 (Rupees One Lakh) for Noon Meal Scheme
Each year he used todonate huge sum whole heartedly. We proudly register here that he is our Old student, did his Mechanical Engineering(1990-1993."

"He handed over the cheque to our principal in person."
Sri Nithyananda, does Rajagopal Polytechnic College offer courses on English and web site design? And, Sri Nithyananda, is that how you spell your name? Wow, Sri Nithyananda, we never guessed. We mean that you take every opportunity to brag about everything that supports your super-natural god-like-state-of-everything including getting the highest marks in the class (Formless in Form p. 29) Anyway, we know you like to brag, so we're just shocked that you passed up this opportunity to say that you were just a tender age of twelve when you attended the polytechnic school. Let's see if we have this right. You, Sri Nithyananda, were born January 1, 1978. And, the website confirms that you attended from 1990 to 1993. So, 1990 minus 1978 and we get 12-years-of-age.

Wow, Sri Nithyananda, Rajagopal Polytechnic College in Gudiyattam was nice enough to provide the information when you left the school, which was 1993. So, that means you were there for three (3) years. And, must be a proud degree holder. But, Sri Nithyananda, when we fit this into your time line, it still doesn't add up.  Let's see, if you started your wandering in 1993 and got enlightenment on January 1, 2000. Why that's just six and a half years (6.5) of wandering and not the full nine (9) years of wandering you always claim. But, wait, there's more. In your book Glimpses of My Master, Nithyananda, original first edition December 2005, page 157, you, Sri Nithyananda, said that you left your parents' house in Thiruvannamalai at age 17 to start your wandering experience. How old were you, Sri Nithyananda when you 'graduated' from the polytechnic school? Let's see, 1993 minus 1978, that makes you a tender age of fifteen. So, after getting the certificate that you are a super-genius for completing the engineering program with the highest grade - a 'Distinction' from the Rajagopal Polytechnic College in Gudiyattam (The Formless in Form, p. 29), did you, Sri Nithyananda crash at your parents' pad for two years, visited graveyards, and hung out at the back of bowling alleys? When you got tired of that, did you, Sri Nithyananda, decide to start your wandering? So, this model doesn't quite make sense... but at least now we have some new 'concrete' dates.

Sri Nithyananda, when are your dedicated bloggers of the parallel universe going to answer our simple questions about your time line? It should be very easy to do. In fact, once your version from La-La Land gets posted, we will no longer be able to speculate what new fantasies will manifest themselves.  So, we hate to spoil our own fun, but your information will end all of our speculation.  Until then, we'll have a field day, at your expense, of course.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, what was your secret in getting accepted in the polytechnic at such a young age? Did you cover you body in holy ash so no one could tell you were just a twelve-year-old? Or did you transform into some super-hero like the time you once claimed that you became Swami Ayyappa to your teacher? (Formless in Form p. 22). Hey, Sri Nithyananda, have you ever thought about wearing a cape and some tights? And, perhaps some cute little orange boots? Sri Nithyananda, you already have that Osho logo with the swan on it. That could be the emblem you place on your chest; you would be all set. We bet the ladies would really fall for you in that get up. Anyway, these scenarios for you getting into the Rajagopal Polytechnic College in Gudiyattam are not that likely, even for an 'enlightened' healing master like you, Sri Nithyananda.

Come to think of it, it must have been a bit hard for you to have all those experiences in Thiruvannamalai while attending the polytechnic in Gudiyattam at the same time. Didn't you, Sri Nithyananda, claim to have that 360 vision at the age of twelve at Arunachala Hill in Thiruvannamalai? Were you on summer vacation at the time, for that happened in May? And, what about all those other stories with you allegedly palled around with Mataji Kuppammal and circumventing Arunachala Hill for a few months everyday, etc. And, what about those stories in high school, you, know, Senior Secondary School, Standards IX to XII? We already mentioned one of them about how your teacher became your devotee after you transformed into Lord Ayyappa. Did do an accelerated program and completed Standards IX to XII at age eleven? Wow, that would be enlightening. Do you have any proof of this? Why didn't you mention this wonderful achievement before? Ah, we get it, Sri Nithyananda, you're just one of those modest types.

So, Sri Nithyananda, how did you get all of these experiences at age twelve? Did you commute from and hurried back to have all of those experience? "Aghhhhh", Sri Nithyananda, our Gruntanese translator can't figure out if you mean 'yes' or 'no'. Anyway, we just checked on Google Maps.

Google Map from Thiruvannamalai to Gudiyattam, Tamil Nadu
And, Google Maps says that it takes 1 hour and 50 minutes in optimal conditions to commute from Thiruvannamalai to Gudiyattam. Now if you are taking public transportation, then that would increase your commute by at least 30 minutes. (Perhaps as much as an hour and a half, but we'll give Sri Nithyananda a break.) If you had to walk to the bus station from your house in Thiruvannamalai, that adds on at least another 15 minutes (minimum) and probably the same with getting to the polytechnic in Gudiyattam. Add the wait time for a bus and your looking at least two and a half hours minimum from door to door, that would mean five hours every day, but most likely even more. Wow, Sri Nithyananda, no wonder you never had time to study.

So, Sri Nithyananda, we hate to call you on these inconvenient discrepancies about all these confusing dates, but we would like to perhaps offer an explanation to why these dates just don't match. We already know, that you, Sri Nithyananda, really have a thing about looking youthful, you know, your appearance and image. So, we imagine that the temptation to fudge it a bit is always there. Now, we have seen a government issued documentation that really states that your birth day is on March 13, 1977. Wow, that's nine months before you said that you 'descended' down to this planet, but we know that in India, the date of birth records are not always so exact, and that that difference alone wouldn't raise too many eye brows in the Indian legal system.

If you want to cheat on a handwritten document and fudge it a bit, probably the easiest number to 'transform' into another number would be the number '2'. With a similar pen stroke and a slash in the middle, you can make a '2' into a '7'. Let's, Sri Nithyananda, do an academic experiment. Let's say you were born in 1972 and changed the 2 into a 7, so you can claim that you were born in 1977. Is this what happened? So, let's go back and see if you were born on 1972, does this fit the evidence, Sri Nithyananda? Hey, that works, you would then be 18 when you entered the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, Tamil Nadu, and attended your engineering program. But, wait, if you stayed until 1993, then that would have made you 21 when you started your wandering. So, we imagine that perhaps shortly after attending the Engineering Program, that you got bored and flunked out. Maybe it was an all-boys school back then, so the extracurricular activities were a bit limited in scope. After disappointing everyone, then it made sense for you, Sri Nithyananda, to leave home wandering rather than be a slacker at the graveyard. Of course that meant that you were at least 18 or maybe even 19 when you left home, but at least you could have gotten your 9.5 years of wandering in before you experienced your alleged 'ultimate' experience of 'enlightenment' on January 1, 2000. If that revised date of 1972 held true, Sri Nithyananda, then that would make you now 37-years-of-age, almost 38. That might explain that clump of gray hairs you had a few years back and why you now look so middle aged these days.

Now, admittedly, we don't have any hard proof of this theory, but we do see the dates you allegedly attended at the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, Tamil Nadu, and saw your copy of the government documentation that had your 'other' date of birth on it. So, that means in order to keep this legend up, the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam had to be a willing partner to make sure that you were 'credited' and a 'graduate'. Are there any clues to what might motivate them to do such an act of educational transgression? Oh, back to Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam website:
we see right there that it said that you helped "feeding noon meal to poor and needy students." and that you, Sri Nithyananda "handed over the cheque to our principal in person." For the amount of "Rs.100,000 (Rupees One Lakh)." This comes out to a little over two thousand US dollars. (On December 7, 2009 that as $2,145.69. Why that wasn't very much, Sri Nithyananda, in exchange for keeping your myth alive. Why that's not even half of what your charge for the 'Inner Awakening' program. Did you have a more private 'under the table' ceremony during your visit? We suppose that the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam did get to place your picture, Sri Nithyananda, on their website, so now it is a famous 'in demand' place that young people can attend and feel your energy on perhaps one of the chairs there. We're sure that you will draw in new recruits like hotcakes, there, Sri Nithyananda, unless of course, you go to jail sometime for all of your crimes, then we imagine that the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, probably will remove your picture from their website.

Once again, we do not have any hard proof of any of these allegations, but obviously something fishy is happening here. So, for all of you investigative journalists, you might want to pay a visit to the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, and see the poor students being feed their noontime meal. If nothing is happening, then we're sure you will hear something like "Eka Dasi" (a traditional fasting day) or the chef is sick. If you're persistent enough and make an appointment, then the chances are high you will be treated to watch all the staff eat a meal and hear complaints about the low pay of working at a polytechnic. Why you are there, you might want to check the records of Sri Nithyananda, then probably known as Rajasekaren, and see exactly how old this boy genius was when he attended the Rajagopal Polytechnic College, in Gudiyattam, for his engineering certificate. Sri Nithyananda just might have been a little bit older than twelve. There's only one way to find out.

'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda Turns Away Those In Need Out of Greed

Swami Nithyananda has the Compassion of a Sex-Starved Boa Constrictor

Hi there, Sri Nithyananda. We just watched some of the YouTube clips about your autobiography and wow, you sure do seem like a genuine Paramahamsa. With all those bright lights and onlookers, you just go out of your way to radiate compassion. No wonder you're so successful. Sri Nithyananda, is there a price for this success? "I make everyone pay. Is that what you mean my price?" Well, actually no, there, ah, Sri Nithyananda. That is not what we meant, but wow, that was a great self-disclosure. In fact, someone from Toronto just emailed us this story about you earlier today. Here, have a look:

A sweet story of compassion from so called Nithyananda monks oh sorry monkeys..

During his first visit to toronto there is a family who has a small little cute boy with life threatening cancer. Volunteers in toronto tried best to accomodate them for free for kalpataru programme as they did not have any money left and belonged to poor family. They had immense faith in Masters and that turned them to put a request to nithyananda organisation. Mr Bhaktananda...famously called as " ROWDY SWAMI" denied entry and finally the family with other volunteers help had to borrow money and let the family in for just a 2 second darshan. The boy could not sit for the whole day...and what the family just asked for two second darshan for free.....But The so called compassionate monks..oh again sorry monkeys charged 200.00$ for a 2 second darshan....IS THIS COMPASSION FOR NITHYANANDA ORGANISATION. The monks including Bhaktananda are monsters who only talk about money in each meeting, they are concerned about only numbers how much people paid for programmes. Rightly They are called as "ROWDY SWAMIS".

Please stay away from this rowdy swamis.....
Well, Sri Nithyananda, what do you have to say about that? "I wasn't aware." What? You, Sri Nithyananda, were not aware? Don't you give the impression that you know everything about everyone at every single moment? That all your minions wouldn't even think about killing a spider unless they have your approval (actual story)? So, how can you say that you, Sri Nithyananda, didn't know? Don't say that it was their 'karma'; you said yourself that an 'enlightened' healing master can change someone's karma just be moving his or her foot. We agree. We seen you change someone's karma just by moving your foot. Being kicked, and by such a stinky foot as yours, is not what we consider good karma, but it does change someone's karma. But, we digress. Sri Nithyananda, somehow we are not surprised by this antic, but are still sadden. It shows that you, Sri Nithyananda, have all the compassion of a sex starved boa constrictor.

You seem to want to squeeze the last drop of money, time, or life-force from everyone. Very cold-blooded indeed.  When will this nonsense stop?

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.

Nithyananda's Parallel Universe is Ignorant, Therefore Not Bliss

The Bloggers of La-La Land Evade Our Five Questions

Hi there Paramahamasa Nithyananda. I see that your Parallel Universe of fantasy blogging continues to ignore reality with your latest post title "Ignorance is Not Bliss". We just wanted to have our five very simple questions about your life story answered that should be so easy for someone like you to answer in less than three minutes. [new to this blog?, please see post "Do the Math - Nithyananda's Enlightenment Timeline Doesn't Add Up"] But, oh, did you do this? "I don't know what those bloggers did." Nice try there, Sri Nithyananda. We know that nothing happens unless you give the orders directly from you to do so including filing false allegations accusing others of crimes they never did. Did you know, Sri Nithyananda, that if called to court, your little prank could earn your programmed liars many years in a federal prison? I'm sure you would make time in your busy schedule to come and visit them, because you have so much compassion. Perhaps the Anna Datta (head chef) is perfecting the art of cooking files into cakes right now.

Anyway, we really are not interested in your worthless threats. We are interested in our five questions:

  1. What was the exact day, time, and year you, Sri Nithyananda, were born?
  2. When did you finish your public education, e.g. Senior Secondary School (i.w. high school), Standards IX to XII? What year, what grade level, and how old were you?
  3. What years (from when to when) did you attend the three-year polytechnic in Engineering? Did you graduate?
  4. When did you leave home to start your nine-years of wandering? How old were you and what year was that?
  5. Where (exact place) did you reach your final stage of enlightenment that you claimed happened on January 1, 2000?
Sorry for all of the repetition. Sometimes it takes several times before those who reside in the parallel universe of La-La Land can begin to see reality. There is hope though, if they stand on their heads and talk backwards, there's a chance that Truths can begin to seek in. That might be too much to ask for. Oh, by the way, our readers to have some additional questions asked. You will probably ignore these too, because they might upset your La-La Land tranquility. But, there just might be the chance that you're standing on your head now, so here's our reader's choice:

  • How much money was colleted and what are the plans for the Shiva Lingas that were to be placed around your Vedic Temple in Montclair?
And, from Canada, we have some specific questions about stuff you, Sri Nithyananda, promised, collected, and never delivered:

  1. Why money is collected in name of programmes called Nithyananda Youth Foundation when there is no such charitable organisation in Canada?
  2. What is the a/c number and in which bank they have openend a/c for temple project?
  3. What is the amount collected?
  4. What is the blue print of the temple?
  5. Where is the land in which temple is being built?
You see, Sri Nithyananda, the problem is this. If you're going to take the strategy of hiding behind Vedic Culture and build big, beautiful temples, with big, big, big deities, that's fine. And, if people can see you do that, it will be easier to cheat them, because they think you, Sri Nithyananda, are some big Holy man who would never do anything bad at all. But, your strategy can also backfires when you don't fulfill all of your promises or any of your promises at all. You see, these people believe in God much more than they believe in a con artist. And, when they feel that you cheated them via God or cheated God directly via them, wow, Sri Nithyananda, you might not get any Divali cards from them next year.

So, Sri Nithyananda, we know that you most likely hijacked all of their money and funneled it back to your ashram in India where you started all those big infrastructure projects like that big stadium. But, we thought we should ask you the readers' questions, just in case you were standing on your head.

For our Canadian readers, do not be discouraged. Luckily, you live in a free society that will not believe all the propaganda that Sri Nithyananda is 'enlightened' and that his word is divine. They will ask for proof, and if he fails, then Sri Nithyananda will be stuck in the center of trouble bubble. A good place to start asking the Canadian Government is the Canadian Revenue Agency.

Even though Sri Nithyananda's bloggers missed a chance to answer our five easy questions, and therefore, make themselves look like they are trying to cover something up that you, Sri Nithyananda, dug yourself into. (For those of you new to these posts, read: Do the Math - Nithyananda's Enlightenment Timeline Doesn't Add Up and then our new readers will know why we want these five questions asked.)

OK, we'll answer your post, Sri Nithyananda, this time. But you need to answer our five questions next time.

Let's see, on your post, 'IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS' (love those CAPS). Yes, Sri Nithyanada, we agree with you. Keeping people ignorant about all the money you collected and not letting them know what happpened is neither blissful to the people you cheated or is it blissful to you, and perhaps it isn't even blissful to the IRS or Canadian Revenue Agency. Your blogger accuses us of filtering everything out. We post most of what we receive. If we don't agree, we usually have our rebuttal ready and then we post both together. Seeing how you have not posted a single comment, let me repeat, you have posted ZERO (0) comments, we're a bit surprised that your blogger could even mention this point. But, then again, when someone thinks that they are 'enlightened' and is following the orders of a self-proclaimed god, they are set up for all kinds of distortions.

Let's take a look at your blogger's post.  Hmmm, we see that there is anger, issues, and dirty words. Yes, we heard this before from your blogger. More of the same. We get the ancient customs of dharma (righteousness), so your attempts to divide and rule fail again. If you're really interested in a lawsuit, please call us to court, and we'll tell everything we know including names, places, and activities. This is includes what you consider the sex crimes. We'll let the court decide. We will also file charges too. So, it could be very 'enlightening' process. We are ready. Just be sure your allegations have some merit, for if we can prove your side is lying about some serious stuff, the U.S. courts will not be amused. Let's leave it at that.

We see that your blogger did address your birth date as best as he or she could, and said:

"You ask specific questions about his birthday! Who do you think you are? What time were you born? Most of us don’t have a clue. It’s hard to get these records in America and in India, well Good Luck! Such minutia is just not important in India, hence the cultural difference. How Indians perceive things are different."
More divide and rule, Sri Nithyananda. We think that you, being an 'enlightened' healing master, could come up with a better way of skirting the issue. You provide conflicting times in your books, and must have had the time for your astrological reading that you brag so much about. But, Sri Nithyananda, we know that you know, and we'll keep on asking.

Then there's more of the same about justifying your overpriced programs and that it really is a bargain since the facilities received would have cost that much in the US. So, Sri Nithyananda, are you providing these people with a nice 3/2 bungalow? Are you familiar with anything called, Purchasing Power Index (PPI)? Yes, Sri Nithyananda, it would be nice to live in India and get paid in America. We think that you must have figured out how to do that. Genius.  It must be a comfy stay in the center of La-La Land.

Once again, there's more of the same about the lack of sleep. Sri Nithyananda, your blogger mentions one study that says that it is a good thing not to have not much sleep. Your blogger goes on about his or her personal life and say, and that he or she feels great with just five-hours of sleep. Fine, Sri Nithyananda. We're glad your blogger feels fine with just five-hours of sleep. Sometimes that's all we get too. Some people need more sleep than that, and they should have the opportunity to have that sleep.  Your blogger mentioned that 6.5 to 7 hours-of-sleep is healthy.  Yes, let them have that, nightly.

We have big problems when you, Sri Nithyananda, have your ashramites work late into the night or keep them with your long and pointless meetings and then expect them to be bathed and meditating a few hours later while you sleep-in in the mornings like a baby. Didn't you, Sri Nithyananda, once make your ashramites in India go without sleep for two weeks while you jolted to the U.S. in August 2006? Our informants told us that you, Sri Nithyananda, gave your ashramites an incredible amount of work to do, and told them they can only sleep sitting up right in their chairs or at right at their work stations, not in their bunk-beds? Wow, Sri Nithyananda, you sure do know how to get the most out of your workers. Have you ever thought about running human productivity seminars for 'enlightened' dictators?

Just so that you are aware, Sri Nithyananda, there's plenty of studies that show that less than six-hours of sleep is bad for you. Here's one done by Stanford University:

Here's what Google came up with for a search of "
six hours of sleep".  Just skimming the results, you will find that six hours of sleep is not enough.

Scarier yet, Wikipedia has some not-so-wholesome facts about Sleep Deprivation including death in lab animals:

Sri Nithyananda, you don't treat your ashramites like animals, do you? Are you sure you don't treat most of them like donkeys and a special few like fluffy little bunny rabbits?

The real point of mentioning the amount of sleep and lack of it is the psychological damage that sleep deprivation can cause.  This is no minor point.  Just look. Google has over 40,000 listings for the key words, "sleep deprivation brainwashing"

Sri Nithyananda, all this talk about sleep deprivation is getting tired. Let's just agree to disagree, and if anyone dies or becomes mentally unstable as a result of your 'meditative' sleep deprivation, you, Sri Nithyananda, are on your own. We are glad that you, Sri Nithyananda, a self-proclaimed Paramahamsa, already have a lawyer.

Sri Nithyananda, we agree with your blogger's comments about your blog:

"Nothing could be farther from the truth."
Spot on. Yes, that's life in your parallel universe. And, about that steamy topic about sex in the Ashram, (Hey, Sri Nithyananda, you can make a great TV series out of that, and once again raise some money for your charity.  You do love to practice charity, right?  Say, is Charity your new room service girl?) Once again, if we're called to court, under oath and penalty of perjury, we'll tell everything we seen and know with names, dates, and details. We do know that you, Sri Nithyananda, model your ashram after Osho (Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh), and we all know what he stood for. The only difference between you and him is that you layered your model with a veneer of holy dhoti cloth. But underneath it all, same thing going on.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, in your blog's next post, try to answer those five, simple chronological questions. Otherwise, we're going to have a really easy time making fun of you. Not that we have to make any effort as it is now.

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 4: Four days have passed since Sri Nithyananda's bloggers of the Parallel Universe of La-La Land have not answered our simple chronological questions. We'll keep on reminding them.

Day 25: Twenty-five days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.

Nithyananda Starts a New Parallel Universe Blog = Fantasy Land

Nithyananda's Bloggers Claim Cyber La-La Land

Wow, Paramahamsa Nithyananda, do you believe in parallel universes? You know, Sri Nithyananda, just like the sci-fi horror movies where something is truthful exists in the real world but in a parallel plane it becomes lies? Where something that express dharma (righteousness) becomes adharma (unrighteousness)? Where something is based on reality becomes garnished in La-La Land fantasy? Where something that was light and humorous becomes heavy and dull? Where something is written respectfully becomes caste as 'filthy'? "You should never question an 'enlightened' healing master. We work on a different plane." Yes, we agree, with you Sri Nithyananda. You work on different planes. In fact, here's the proof. As everyone knows, our blog is:
and your new parallel universe blog is:

Wow, Sri Nithyananda, looks like you must have admired our friend, Jody Radzik's blog of Guruphiliac. Same skin and everything. Will you be advertising some energy drinks on it too? That might help you collect some money for your charity work and those the free samples of those energy drinks will come in handy when all your sleep deprived ashramites need a pick-me-up.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, we accept that copying is the most sincere form of flattery, and we now officially feel flattered that you took the time and resources to help counter the influences that our blogs have caused and officially recognized that we have some serious questions and they need to be answered. Thanks for the clarity. (On a side note, is Clarity one of your new room-service girls? Did you name your blog after her?)

Sorry, Sri Nithyananda, for the distraction. So, could you, Sri Nithyananda, please answer these simple questions on your parallel universe blog so that we all have a very good idea where you stand and we no longer can guess or speculate? Don't worry, there just simple chronological questions with no tricks up our sleeves, promise. Can you, Sri Nithyananda, and your dedicated blogging team answer these questions:
  1. What was the exact day, time, and year you, Sri Nithyananda, were born?
  2. When did you finish your public education, e.g. Senior Secondary School (i.w. high school), Standards IX to XII? What year, what grade level, and how old were you?
  3. What years (from when to when) did you attend the three-year polytechnic in Engineering? Did you graduate?
  4. When did you leave home to start your nine-years of wandering? How old were you and what year was that?
  5. Where (exact place) did you reach your final stage of enlightenment that you claimed happened on January 1, 2000?
Sri Nithyananda, answer these questions will be very helpful. We already mentioned some of these issues in a previous post on October 28, 2009, "Do the Math - Nithyananda's Enlightenment Timeline Doesn't Add Up", and well, we know that all true Paramahamsas are embedded in the Truth, so now that you have an official blog to voice your views on our blog, we would like to see a post address these specific, chronological questions. That shouldn't be too hard, unless of course you lied, and then you wouldn't be a true Paramahamsa that can charge all those outrageous prices for your workshop seminars. So, by answering these questions, Sri Nithyananda, your validity and marketing get a boost. And, if we're wrong with any of these calculations, we'll say, "Sorry." Promise.

And, Sri Nithyananda, could you please include the exact time of your birth? We're a bit confused. In your book, The Formless in Form, page 5, you wrote that you were born on 12:32 a.m., January 1, 1978. But in your other book, Glimpses of My Master, Nithyananda, first 'first' (original) edition December 2005 on pages 87-91 that you were born on January 1, 1978 at 0:30 (12:30 a.m.). I know, Sri Nithyananda, we're splitting hairs over just two measly minutes. But, why we really want to know the exact time of your birthday is that we can replicate that astrology chart that you said was done when the astrologers refunded all that cash to your family because they predicted that you would be a bona-fide sanyasi (monk). Since you didn't display this chart anywhere, like the Ramakrishna Mission displays Paramahamsa Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda's astrological chart, we thought we could do the same. That way if anyone had any questions, you could just add a link to our blog and then all their answers about whether or not you were 'the real McCoy' of a Paramahamas would be answered.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, we wait for your replies. In the meantime, we thought we would do a trans-cultural exchange and comment on your commentaries. Don't worry, Sri Nithyananda, we'll give you lots of back links that will help you in your search engine ratings.

Your post: Work IS meditation. Some don't get it!

Our reply: Well, we see that your blogger dude didn't add quote marks around his "a***"stericks, so we accept that we never said anything in that way. Well, thanks for letting us all know how you sell the fact that your slaves are really meditating and not just working all the time. You said that "I am surprised you call yourself an insider and are not aware of the daily meditation, yoga, puja/homa, chanting that all ashramites do." Yes, we are aware. In your LA ashram, not much happening except for work, work, work, and the person that had to start the sparsely attended 'guru pooja' in the morning. In the evening, some will make time (or actually have enough time in their busy schedule) to catch the Nithyananda version of arti at the Montclair Vedic Temple. Our insider experience in Bidadi Ashram, the morning version is usually well attended since there were coupons handed out for attendance. If someone missed the morning Nithya Dhyan Meditation in the morning, then that person got no lunch. Kind of reminded us of pigeons pecking for pellets in an animal experiment. We don't know if this practice is still continued or not.

And, yes, we agree, coming to the Ashram as an ashramite is hard work. Don't expect much sleep. We personally know people who didn't sleep for days at the ashram and one contact even fell asleep while driving the big Nithyananda commercial truck. Luckily, there were not accidents. That could have been the ultimate samadhi for many people.

Your concept of "Work is Meditation" (which we assume you also communicate that work brings 'enlightenment') reminded us of this statement:

Arbeit macht frei
is a German phrase meaning "work brings freedom".  Yes, this statement was adorned on the Nazi Germany concentration camps. Our history books said that era also focused around a charismatic leader who liked to censor any criticism about himself.

And, all of that work being done all of the time without proper rest if done under the wrong leadership, would cause some serious brainwashing. This is the techniques used in lot of cults including Jonestown, Osho, the Mason Family, Shining Path, etc. Why wasn't sleep deprivation one of the techniques that the CIA was using on 'high quality' suspects in Guantanamo that was questioned if it was deemed as torture or not? So, we hope that Sri Nithyananda really has it right and monitors all those ashramites so they do not become mentally instable.

Anyway, I'm glad your blogger was able to write some nice things about getting rid of the fatigue layer by lack of sleep and working, working, working away. I just wander if all that work really is meditation and if they are really doing all of those other things, then why did so many of the ashramites get so bulky? We also have accounts of 'enlightened' followers threatening suicide. That doesn't sound very good to me. But, we're open to your points.

Your post: Incorrect information about Sanyasis on

Our reply:
Yes, we took an educated guess of the total of people who were ordained 'sanyasi - first level', you know, the folks wearing orange kavi (strip of holy cloth) cloth. We know that through the years there's been a lot of followers who were ordained on this level and then thought that Sri Nithyananda's brand of 'enlightenment' wasn't for them, so they left. This was particularly true in Nithyananda’s Bidadi Ashram. At one point, Sri Nithyananda got tired of the defection rate, so he made those 'ordained' sanysin (monk) go through a trial basis where they wore yellow (not saffron) kavi (strip of holy cloth) until they were officially 'ordained' and looked like they would stick around.

Some orders like the Ramakrishna Mission usually waits six to eight years before initiating someone into sanyasi (monk), for they want to make sure what person they get. Sri Nithyananda, a man in a hurry, ordained many, and some have actually stayed. Since we don't have access to the Nithyananda Foundation's statistics, we'll gladly post the number of people you want to give us as those who were officially ordained as 'sanysis' (monks). We honestly don't care. Our point then and our point now is that most of these people who were ordained were not qualified due to being married and other society obligations. In LA, there were several married couples that have been separated due to sanyasi (monk) initiation. Some seem very happy with the arrangements, others do not. In one occasion in July 2006, Sri Nithyananda pitted off one spouse against the other during the sanyasi initiation. One spouse wanted to become a senyasi (monk) the other wanted to remain a family life. In front of everyone, Sri Nithyananda constantly questioned the 'hold out' person whether it was 'Yes' or 'No' for that person's spouse to become a sanyasi (monk). If that person answered with 'Yes' there went the family. If that person answered with 'No' then the spouse would be non-forgiving. It was the most 'unspiritual' manipulation demonstration that Sri Nithyananda was abusing his powers and breaking up families. Regardless, we feel that it is wrong to break up families, but we cannot stop you. We'll just point it out, and express our opinion.

Your post: One common question: Why are the courses so highly priced?

Our reply:
Your prices seem to be a bit distorted. We don't know how much your charging for the Life Bliss Program these days. At one point, it was $250.00 for the two-day program. Now, you say, "$100.00". OK, we'll accept that. We knew that in 2008 that in the Montclair Vedic Temple that Life Bliss Programs that charged $250.00 were only receiving a few (average around seven) participants. The market did not support the Life Bliss Program at $250.00, so if you dropped the price to $100.00 for the two-day program, that makes sense. After all, this is your 'feeder' introduction program, so it makes sense to do it at a lower costs. The most recent offering of the one-day Kalpataru Program in the U.S. was at $250.00 up from $150.00 which you quoted. That's a huge distortion. Will you then be offering a $100 refund to everyone who paid $250 for this program? That seems fair for over charging the participants. Your figures for accommodations of $60.00 per day is slightly out-of-alignment. If that was a decent hotel room, that would be fair. In actuality, a hanger-sized room of wall-to-wall bunk beds is a human fire hazard masquerading as a 'dorm'. Overcrowded prisons are not that bad. We hope that there are no casualties. The other cost-break-down seems just as distorted. Sri Nithyananda is not operating these courses at a loss. The big pay-off comes when people pledge a yearly 'donation' of ten percent of their gross income. We know that there's a lot of pressure to commit to that at the end of the program. And, the tours conducted, does that include the world famous 'graveyard' tour? We still feel that this is overpriced and just shows the lack of transparency that Nithyananda's organization has.

Your post: Nithyananda Cult Blog - Total Nonsense!

Our reply:
My, oh, my. There is a tone on this post. Yikes. That blogger must have not had enough work, we mean meditation, that day. You say that we use 'filthy' language, but we see the 'cr@p' word. Perhaps you meant to write 'carp'? Because something sure smells fishy with Sri Nithyananda's operations. We guess when all else fails, try to discredit the Truths by character assault. Holy red herring. (Another fishy aspect.)

The blooger dude's comments show the commitment to this cult, and we'll respect that as much as we can. We just want to say that we have several contributors who were 'insiders' and know refute these claims. Could we please ask where are the funds for the Shiva Lingams that were promised and people contributed real money towards? And, yes, there's all kinds of pressure to change someone's name to the Nithyananda name especially if someone lives in the ashram. We have in our inbox the ultimatum that anyone receiving a Nithyananda name must change it legally within three months and show proof of this legal change or else the Nithyananda Foundation will take away the name. Just a reminder, six of the original twenty-five 'enlightened' followers have left Sri Nithyananda and no longer think his 'enlightenment' is worthy of his certification. We do give credit to Sri Nithyananda's marketing arm making something so horrible look almost attractive on paper. Bill Gates would be jealous. Oh, yes, the blogger dude wrote, "What's your problem whether he sits on a 24K gold throne or a diamond studded one? What do you know about the rich Vedic tradition...?" Yes, we all know which one of the two words "rich Vedic" Sri Nithyananda has emphasized.

Your Post: Perspectives on cults and the Nithyananda blissful cult-ure

Our reply:
Well, it is interesting that you can bring up images of followers under Sri Nithyananda's leadership back to a more simpler and happier lifestyle of people like the Sherpas in Nepal, and the Inuit in Greenland and the Northern Canada. I admit that I do not know much about the Sherpas in Nepal, but I do know that the Divine Mother is big in Nepal, so perhaps She is looking after them and that they are genuinely happy. Perhaps it might be helpful if the blogger talked to Sri Nithyananda Dheera, who we have a lot of respect for. Sri Nithyananda Dheera lived with the Inuit and has some great stories of Inuit domestic violence and alcoholism. Sri Dheera witnessed one the son chasing the elderly parents with a knife in a slow motion-drunken-stupor while threatening to kill them. Regardless, anytime an organization tries to 'bring back' the values of a ‘golden age’ or an utopian society, we smell cult. This is exactly what Jonestown claimed to be doing, and we all know how that ended. Regardless, we appreciate your engaging tone, and we feel that we could better explain why Nithyananda and his organizations is a cult. We look forward to debating this with more depth.

Your post: The futile exercise of judging masters

Our reply:
Yes, we are in agreement. It is a futile exercise of judging True masters, and true dharmic practice to expose fake maters who are not only diluting / hijacking the work of True masters, but causing so much pain of breaking up families, robbing people of their idenities, ending careers, causing divorces and separations, swindling people of their savings, etc., and offering preciously little in return, e.g. fake promise for enlightenment.  Understand, this is not spirituality.  This is fraud. Although there are current masters that we don't agree with 100 percent, we don't allow comments that judge these spiritual people. We see that these masters are offering good to society, and we'll just 'let them be'. But those that operate out of deceit and cheat people, we will expose. Just like calling out a wolf in sheep's clothing, Sri Nithyananda and his cult practices need to be exposed. Innocent sheep are being slaughtered and scattered. The work of Sri Nithyananda is not Divine and awareness needs to proliferate before more victims fall into his trap.

We look forward to more posts and honest debate from the parallel universe of

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 21: Twenty-one days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.
