'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda's Right-hand Man, Swami Sadhananda, Comes Up Empty Handed
Note to readers: This post is a continuation of our blog post three weeks ago titled:
Hey, there 'Swami' Nithyananda. How's things going? Oh, dear. More silence. We take it that in your case silence isn't golden. We think that might be the only thing of yours that isn't golden. Perhaps, of course, with also the exception of your reputation. But, that's another story.
'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, we noticed the Swami Sadhananda a.k.a. Ayya is rounding up his tour of North America. How did it go? Oh, more silence. Gee, Sri Nithyananda, since both you and Swami Sadhananda (Ayya) are businessmen (who you both conveniently say have renounced everything), did you set some objectives and even quota of how many people Swami Sadhananda was going to sign up for your pricey 6K 'Inner Awakening' program? Sri Nithyananda, please understand that the economy in North America really sucks right now, and people can't just leave their job for almost a month and except to have them back when they return. And, those that still have income, they probably want to hang on to that $6,000 just in case... Actually, Sri Nithyananda, if a family of two goes plus airfare and everything, they are looking at dropping at least $15,000. That's a lot to ask for when your job might not be there tomorrow. Yes, we knew, you were going to say that they need 'unclutch'. But, perhaps you should 'unclutch' a little from your greedy business objectives... and your cut-throat business model. You know, Sri Nithyananda, they are the ones who are taking the risk, not you. After all, how many 24K golden thrones do you really need?
And, Sri Nithyananda, we really need to talk about having all those other 'enlightened' followers who did your 'Inner Awakening' program market the next potential batch. Sri Nithyananda, they might seem enthusiastic like Amway / Quixtar distributors, but any conversation beyond the "Wow, it was great!" someone can easily tell that these people are not 'enlightened', but just mesmerized. There is a difference, you know. They just don't seem that credible, almost as if they were just pitching for a fraud. But, then again, Sri Nithyananda, having these 'graduates' talk about 'Inner Awakening' suits our objectives very nicely. So, forget what we said earlier, have these people talk to potential new suckers, we mean seekers, for hours on end. Let them tell everyone how great your pricey 'Inner Awakening' program actually is and how their lives have all changed because of it. They will do great service for everyone.
But, what really puzzled us, Sri Nithyananda, is that your web team, under your orders, we presume, dropped all support of Swami Nithya Sadhananda's (Ayya) tour on your main website, dhyanapeetam.org. You, Sri Nithyananda, used to have this nice Osho logo, we mean 'paramahamsa' bird, that linked to Swami Nithya Sadhananda's (Ayya) schedule. With still three more stops, you removed this link. Why 'Swami' Nithyananda? Is this some sort of tactical retreat? A recruiting defeat? A marketing error? A defense against fraud? We are just baffled.
Oh, we think we get it now, Sri Nithyananda. Perhaps you are offering up a nice excuse for Swami Nithya Sadhananda (Ayya) for not making the numbers. This way when he gets back to India, Ayya (Swami Sadhananda) can then conveniently blame your web team for the poor results. Yes, you and Ayya (Swami Nithya Sadhananda) are still 'enlightened', but your web team is not, and therefore, they can take the blame and leave your reputations intact. Brilliant, there, Sri Nithyananda. Will you beat them all with a big stick? Or will you just reduce them to tears with your mind games? How about a combo pact? As, in reduce them to tears and then beat them. That way you, Sri Nithyananda, can claim that they were cry babies to begin with and that your violence didn't bring them any real harm. Like right.
And, why Sri Nithyananda, did you remove the last scheduled day on Swami Nithya Sadhananda (Ayya) for Saturday, February 27, 2010 in San Jose / the Bay Area in California? Is it too risky for your, an almighty 'enlightened' healing master to have Ayya's San Jose/Bay Area appearance visible to everyone on the internet? Was it cancelled outright or just pushed in the shadowy underground (kind of like all those dead people you disturb)? Don't worry, Sri Nithyananda, the welcoming party that some of our readers were going to organize for Swami Nithya Sadhananda (Ayya) was going to be very peaceful. They were just planning to have some picket signs, a little demonstration, some video footage for YouTube, the press from the local papers, and perhaps someone to attend the event and ask Ayya all those questions about your claims to be wandering for nine years then reduced to just six years but really you were in the Ramakrishna Mission the whole time, etc.
You know, Sri Nithyananda, without this practice with Swami Sadhananda (Ayya), it might be really hard for our readers to do a professional job of protesting when you come, or shall we say if you come back to North America. Oh, well, we guess that they will just have to be spontaneous and remind themselves to keep it peaceful at all times. We hope that they can remember all of 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 fake and fraudulent cult scam.
