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?

While Sitting on Top of Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi, Cult King, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, Serial Deity Sitter, Gets a Golden Dethroning - Plus Return of the Cult Killing Blogs


'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda Tries to Hatch Divinity on His Throne

Hey, there 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda. Well, we're surprised to see you up and out of bed after every thing that happened to you. That was quite a thrashing you got online this week. Let's recap the week, shall we? First there was that new video "Paramahamsa Nithyananda Gets a YouTube Video Message from Lord Shiva".  Even though you, Sri Nithyananda, got your brainwashed followers to knock this video off of YouTube, it seemed that someone posted it right back up again for everyone to view. Sri Nithyananda, are you losing your divine (as in lower 'd') touch?

And, then out of nowhere, came this picture of you, King 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, sitting on your 24K golden throne at your so-called Vedic Temple in Montclair, California:
Wow, look at that. We can clearly see that you had your 24K golden throne made with little images of Lord Ganesha right next to your feet. Please, please, please, promise us, Sri Nithyananda, that you will never allow Swami Medhananda to sit on that throne until his smelly feet are cured. And, it says on the picture, "Lord Ganesha is by his feet, but Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi is on his seat!" Wow, Sri Nithyananda, we probably wouldn't believe that you, keeper of Vedic Truths, in a so-called Vedic Temple would actually have Lord Ganesha right next to your feet, but to have Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi on the seat of your throne... doesn't that mean that you are sitting on top of them!?!  What are you trying to do, there, Sri Nithyananda?  Hatch divinity?
We don't think you, Sri Nithyananda, make a very good mother hen.  (Unless of course, we factor in your singing.  Now that is some very disturbed clucking.)  And, furthermore, we, Sri Nithyananda, hope that the Deities can breath under those circumstances. If we haven't seen directly with our own eye the picture of Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi on the seat of your 24K golden throne, we probably would never believe it.
[Note to readers: there are other Hindu Deities on the seat and on the inner side of the seat of Sri Nithyananda's 24K golden throne. Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi are the Deities that are directly under his seat.]
Sri Nithyananda, can we ask if you bathe before you sit down on top of Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi? Well, the reason we ask is that we know God loves all our body parts equally, but we are certain that God loves it even more when all our body parts are equally clean... especially under those circumstances. And, Sri Nithyananda, we hope that you do not load up on garbanzo beans (chickpeas) before you, ah, shall we say, give another flatulent discourse while sitting on that throne.

Sri Nithyananda, isn't this the famous throne in your Montclair Vedic Temple that one of your volunteers permanently injured himself on while trying to move it? It is oversized and heavy, just kind of like your ego. And, didn't you kind of fudge that throne's value on the customs notice for such a heavy 24K golden object when you imported it into the United States? We wonder if there's a reward for reporting such violations. We have an idea, Sri Nithyananda, why don't you report yourself, so you can collect the reward, and keep it for your self? That ought to help offset  the low attendance for your 'Inner Awakening' program.

Sri Nithyananda, can we ask why you did such a thing? You, know, place pictures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses on your 24K Golden Throne and then sit on them? If that is how you treat Divinity, imagine how you treat your ashramites and ananda sevaks (full time volunteers). Wait a minute, Sri Nithyananda, we remembered that we asked you back in November 2007 why there were pictures of Hindu deities right where you would sit down.  We were a bit puzzled, naturally.  You, Sri Nithyananda said something like:
"A satguru (true Master) is above Hindu Gods, that the Hindu Gods are subservient to the satguru.  That allows me the right to place them on the seat of my throne."
We imagine that you were referring to yourself, Sri Nithyananda, as being the satguru. In this case, we probably would have appreciated you more as being a 'standing' guru.

'Swami' Nithyananda, we think we understand your mindset now.  Just like animals show their superiority and dominance by urinating on things, you, Sri Nithyananda, show your superiority and dominance in the spiritual world not by lifting your leg, but instead by planting your backside firmly on top of Deities, in this case on top of Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi.  And, then, as an extra insult to Hinduism, you let Lord Ganesha gaze at your toes, that is when you decide not to wear shoes inside your own Vedic Temple.  Nice.  Sri Nithyananda, we don't know if this really shows your superiority and dominance at all.  We do know, that with no buts about it, you, Sri Nithyananda, certainly made an *asterisk* of yourself.  After all, Sri Nithyananda, you wouldn't want your former devotees who escaped from you cult to show that they are superior over you in the same manner, would you?
[Note to loyal readers: now, now, please show some restraint.  Sri Nithyananda, as hard as it is to believe sometimes, is only human.  Please wait at least a few weeks before submitting your new YouTube videos.]
Sri Nithyananda, we think you might want to hide this picture we featured in this post. We imagine that if staunch Hindus ever knew you had Lord Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi squarely under your cheek and if they saw your feet dangling next to Lord Ganesha, that all the obstacles just might be removed... for a full-fledged RIOT! (in your honor, of course.) Why if those devout Hindus saw this photo, they probably would no longer think that you are the keeper of Vedic Truths.  Why, they might even say "fraud" and "cult".  Even the rich and influential Hindus that received your Honorary PhD in Hinduism from the Hindu University of America (HUA) might want to return your degree and give you, Sri Nithyananda, the third degree instead. The worst part of it all, Sri Nithyananda, is that all of this uproar that you are not respectful to Hinduism and Vedic Truths just might cut into your revenue stream.  Now, that would really hurt.

Sri Nithyananda, being a cult leader, we know that you probably think that you are above the law, both the legal and karmic varieties, but to be above Hindu Gods and Goddesses, even if it is just by a thin cushion, is well, kind of pushing the limits, even for an 'enlightened' healing master such as yourself. Sri Nithyananda, believe it or not, we actually pray for you that nothing is going to happen to you. What if Lord Vishnu came to life and he was really able to use that weapon, that spinning disc, while you were seated on top of him? We imagine that could cause some serious pain, and might even cause some stains on your 24K Golden Throne. So, Sri Nithyananda, if you ever tried to sell it on eBay, the overall value and winning bid would definitely not be as high.

Sorry to say, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, that was not all the bad news you had this week online. Looks like our friends at Fairy Tales of Paramahamsa Nithyananda did a site redesign, so it will be easier for spiritual seekers to find more embarrassing moments about you. Why we even found a new blog that let's your grandma get in on the act: "Grandma Spanks Paramahamsa Nithyananda".

And, 'Swami' Nithyananda, even your die-hard supporters are beginning to falter. They are now commenting with 'qualifications' and doubt. Don't get us wrong, Sri Nithyananda, they still are brainwashed, but now they seem to have a level of Truth in their remarks. For instance, on YouTube, some comments by a defending spelling champion, trueseeker100001:
so whut if He is nt enlightened..so whut if he is not a God..
At least He has transformed many people s life into a better place and he has done so much to help people out there..
rather than wasting ur time condemning people..y nt u go do sumtjin useful to help the needy~~
[Source: YouTube Video: Nithyananda (A guru who has nothing to do with enlightenment and spirituality)]
And, on that same video, another supporter, nafelll, wrote:
I like him,and it is not a problem when he copies osho or someone else,at some point all of them copy each other,he likes money but i guess everybody like it,c'mon take it easy guys,so many people found relief,give him credit.
'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, do you realize, that with this type of devotee support, we really don't have to do anything more. Our job might be done. OK, that was a bit premature, but Sri Nithyananda, it is nice to know that we are well on our way to get the Truth out to everyone.

So, Sri Nithyananda, where is all of your online support? We noticed that there has been very few, if any, Tweets on Twitter lately from your supporters. In fact, Swami Medhananda hasn't given a single tweet on his Twitter account since December 4, 2009. Are you giving up on Twitter? If you would like to show us that you're not giving up on Twitter, simply add our Twitter account @auntieNithya to any Twitter Tweets just to let us know that you're still alive and kicking on Twitter.  Otherwise, we'll just assume that you, Sri Nithyananda, are in re-tweet.

But, the best online news, maybe not the best online news for you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, is the return of our friends at the Wordpress blog, "Debunking Nithyananda and his Teachings with Science".

Here's the URL:
nithyanandacult.wordpress.com
This blog started way back in June of 2009 and had been quiet for about six months. But, now, they are back. This blog is in full bloom and several new posts have come out. They had some of the original classics like:
We have to admit, Sri Nithyananda, that 'debunking' blog and a few YouTube videos were huge inspirations for us to get the Truth out with our blog. Perhaps the bloggers at "Debunking Nithyananda and his Teachings with Science" got re-inspired to make you famous, Sri Nithyananda. After all, isn't becoming famous one of the things a Raja Sanyasi (king of renunciants) desires?

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.

Day 62: Sixty-two 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 83: Eighty-three days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.

    Regarding Guadeloupe, I think it would be great if someone can start a French website.

    Similarly it is important to start a Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Spanish blogs. This will reach out to all of Nithyananda's core audience.

  5. Hey there..let me name myself as Infinity!

    Will it Work? If we forward these amazing articles to the media and press people??

    Won't they find it interesting to see the missing logic in Nithyananda’s Biography, his crazy love for 24K Golden Thrones…and lot more. Won’t they find it fishy and start writing articles…in that way it can reach people much faster!!

    By the time we set up blogs in different languages this dirty saint would have screwed another 100 families in the name of Certified Enlightment Course, Bhagawath Gita Discourse, Kalpatharu Dharshan, Gurukulam & whatever we can’t think of it.!!

    .....so what do you guys think?

  7. Yes, it's true. If I hadn't seen it for myself, I may not have believed it. But Swamiji was so proud when he got his golden throne, he couldn't contain his excitement. He unveiled it for me and my friends to see when it first arrived and boasted specifically about the various images of deities on it. Each one is detailed, large, and raised. Each side (including back, two sides, seat under cushion) of the throne has one or two images. There is Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha, etc. I thought it was Shiva under his seat, but I may be wrong, I can't remember accurately because there were so many different Gods that he pointed out to us. And he specifically said, "Who else but an enlightened person would dare to sit on God?"

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh, forgot to say in my earlier post that we were all shocked when we saw all the Gods and knew that Swamiji would be sitting on their faces and having his feet up on them! We were disgusted and thought that this is very wrong on many levels and that he is pushing the limit. Especially, being enlightened (we believed him at that time), he should know that he must be a good example for others - he should have the correct behavior and conduct himself with utmost respect for God and Vedic traditions. Of course, then we realized that no one would really know because the cushion covers up the big image - that's how he can get away doing this. Just like he gets away doing all the nonsense he does - wearing shoes in the temple purposely in front of God as he did in Ohio in 2007, and other egregious behaviors. Why is it that everyone else is supposed to follow the rules and he doesn't? Why is it that we think it's okay that the one person who supposedly believes in and supports Vedic traditions and behavior can get away with blatantly breaking the rules. People always give the excuse, "oh, but he's enlightened, so it's okay, we must not judge." But I say that the enlightened person must be held to a HIGHER standard, not a lower one!

  9. Even a 1-page Tamil site with the timeline and some basic info would help. An Escapee Corner for those who escaped to contribute thier stories would be useful if blogger don't have time to write. Be wonderful to have a Tamil person write a skeleton webpage if one doesn't already exist.

    ReplyDelete
  10. It is a great idea to forward links, Youtube videos, etc to news media. Please eamil to temple venues hosting Ayya too. Let those in charge be aware of the scam. May be they have questions too!!

    Choose Videos with real story content to send. Videos that make fun of Nithy are entertaining & therapeutic for escapees but may appear prejudicial to the media.

    It is now my SEVA to send out some of these info and help expose the FRAUD I encountered.

    I had no problem with Nithy not being enlightened or charged for meditation programs. He can be a meditation workshop instructor like Tony Robbins on wealth workshops. It is his lies and deception to get obedient slave volunteers and cut-throat "donations" that is troubling.

    He knows few would pay $6000 USD for a 3-week program in a dorm in his Indian ashram w/o deception. And fewer would give up their career and family to slave for him w/o his massive deception.

    A lecturer/instructor only needs knowledge to teach. A GURU needs love and dedication to guide disciples/devotees. Using deception to exploit those who trusted / surrendered to him makes him unfit to be a true guru of Vedic Dharma. jmho.

  11. Peanut brittle - to add to what you have already said, I have personally seen Nithyananda say this on many occasions in the city volunteer meetings:

    "I don't have any respect for any of these deities and all. These are all for you and other seekers only. The only thing I respect is Arunachala and I bow down to that, and nothing else".

    This was quite shocking for me to see him say such stuff. And now to learn that he wears shoes in front of deities. And this fool is supposed to be the "caretaker" of Vedic tradition? It is insult to Hinduism. The sooner this fellow ends up in prison the better for all humanity.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why bother to have a Vedic temple with all the deities when Nithy can't show them proper respect? This is total hipocritcy.

    Does Nithy have the deities there so as to show he is above them all? The Master is greater than any deity or God himself - he spoke of this before.

    May be deities are there to bring a good income stream from pujas and from to attract Hindus to the temple to get more followers for the cult.

    Everything is there for his EGO and $$$$$$.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes Ganesan -
    I agree with you. Nithyananda does not at all have devotion or any respect for Gods whatsoever. Only in inner circles, like you have seen, can people see his true side that he keeps well hidden from the public. In 2007 private meeting with top level inner circle, Swamiji said, "oh these Christians don't even keep their God clean, he is made to just hang there like this (Swamiji makes a face with his head hanging down and tongue sticking out to the side), and we [Hindus] at least give bath to our Gods...[we] have to wash Venkateshwara's butt."

    We were shocked as well when we heard him refer to "Venkateshwara's butt". Not only does Nithyananda NOT respect Jesus or Christianity, he doesn't respect Hindu Gods or Hindu Dharma either!

    Nithyananda even got extremely jealous at the opening of the Columbus, Ohio temple in 2007 because devotees were admiring the beauty of the Shiva-Parvati Deities that were just installed and Nithyananda came and squarely put his chair right in front of the deities, sat down, and fired at people saying that "how dare you give importance to this piece of stone when the real living God is here in front of you!"

    Is this how the keeper of Vedic tradition should behave?!

    ReplyDelete
  14. "Swami" Nithyananda's sitting on top of Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva or Goddess Devi on his throne shows his alter ego and arrogance as he is portraying himself beyond and above all Gods. This is nothing but Blasphemy to these Hindu Gods. Putting his feet on Lord Ganesh's face is offensive to all Hindus!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Peanut Brittle - yes, I have also been in his presence when he made such remarks as Jesus sitting there up on a cross sadly.

    In addition this was even more shocking to me (more so now in retrospect after leaving the organization) that he said:

    - About Jesus - In 2007 in one of the meetings he said, Jesus was never even enlightened, may be at death he got enlightened

    Then in early 2009 he in one meeting I was there and he changed that to say, Jesus may be got enlightened in India (and he was referring to some book).

    So he flip flopped on Jesus. What happened to "downloading" this info from cosmic archives?

    - About Mohammed - he said, "that fellow never got enlightened, just may be he had one Satori".

    Nithyananda, would like the Muslim community to know your views on this? May be they would like to discuss this matter with you personally and show you how to "download".

    ReplyDelete
  16. peanut brittle may be right, it very well could be Sadashiva on the seat, on whom Nithy sits.

    If you recall, in the Divine Feminine Consciousness video he has spoken of how Devi (Parashakti) sits on a seat (asana) called Pancha Brahma Asana. The four legs are Brahma, Vishnu, Ishana and Rudra. The platform itself on which she sits is Sadashiva (just like Kali stands on Shiva).

    Now, close devotees know that Nithy considers himself incarnation of Parashakti (the Feminine Cosmic principle). He doesn't display this side much to the public (for fear of ridicule I guess), but many have seen him dressed in a saree.

    Also see the photo of him in his early days (shaven head) in the book Formless in Form, he is wearing red, and sitting holding a sugarcane stalk in his hand, just like Devi.

    So there is no reason why he could not have commissioned the asana (throne) just like the kind Devi sits on. Not only that, the implication is that the deities are all dead until he plants his butt on the seat lol

  17. Paramahamsa Nithyananda being the great keeper of "Hindu tradition" had this song:

    Maula Mere song

    - played over and over and over inside the Montclair temple (I mean in the temple area, not the ananda sabha) during the City coordinators meeting few months ago. He was enjoying this song so much.

    I have no problem with him enjoying the song. However, I find it inappropriate to play this in the temple itself specially it being a commercial movie song with romantic suggestions. I don't see any "divinity" in the song.

    Who knows what he is going to want to played next and may be even screen songs like these cheap and suggestive songs like these inside the temple:

    Cheap and dirty Indian song sequence

    Such a person is NOT a keeper of Hindu traditions.

  18. Cult Guru Paramahamsa NithyanandaFebruary 10, 2010 at 12:19 PM

    Now, close devotees know that Nithy considers himself incarnation of Parashakti

    Actually the problem is Paramahamsa Nithyananda thinks he is every God or avataar that is known to man. He has dressed up as Devi, Lord Krishna and Shiva as well.

    I am not sure what other Gods he has dressed up as. To me it seems like his ego is so huge, that he pretends he is greater than all Hindu Gods including sitting on Golden thrones with their images.

    ReplyDelete
  19. He just wants to cater to all type of audince that is why he puts on almost a Bollywood type show in Bididi. This will keep more of the deciples in fear and guessing and they will keep the money flowing. The Shiva show was etrarordinary. They have the blarring music pumping out thru the speakers and open the curtains back and forth as if it is something new each time. I saw the croud going ga ga with all the sound and the lights and put evrybody in trance. I was in trance myself and enjoyed the show since there was no other choice. The shiva show went on for about 2 hrs till everybody became completely exhausted.

  20. The "cheap and dirty song sequence" that the anonymous commentator posted here, I don't know if he/she realizes, that actress in the song clip is a close devotee of Nithyananda. Her name is Ranjitha. Shall we say they seem particularly close. I have seen Nithyananda and Ranjitha flirting with each other a few times in public programs :-)

    May be this person posted this song here on purpose.

  21. To me it seems like his ego is so huge, that he pretends he is greater than all Hindu Gods including sitting on Golden thrones with their images.

    Yes. Of all the current Avatars - Sathya Sai Baba, Karunamayi, Mother Meera - he is the only one audacious enough and arrogant enough to do what he does and say what he does.

    But when publicly interacting with other Swamis and Sadhus, he doesn't flaunt his big gold kanthis and sit on his big gold throne. He acts all pseudo humble. Hey, Swamiji, why not prove to those unenlightened sadhus also, that I AM GOD!!! (and you are a poor unenlightened beggar.)

    ReplyDelete
  22. he puts on almost a Bollywood type show in Bididi

    Oh my God, that is so true. After leaving the foundation a month or so ago only I reflected back and realized what a show he puts on in Bidadi. It is exactly like you describe. A real Bollywood show only.

    May be he is going to convert that whole Bidadi into one huge "heaven" like setting for all his devotees who come for expensive programs. They can all think it is heaven on earth :-)

  23. Hi Texas Ex-Devotee,

    I have also seen him flirt with that actress Ranjitha heavily at the ashram during public programs. I was quite shocked actually, how blatantly they were both flirting. She surely gets special treatment from our Paramahamsa.

  24. You know only after leaving Nithyananda and realizing the fraud he is, I have started to read up on other "Saints" and it looks like most of these modern day "Gurus" are fraudulent indeed.

  26. During one of the "Inner Healing" brainwashing exercises, I proposed the question (of course, knowing this is what "non-devotees" will wonder):

    "Your website says, 'I am not here to prove I am God.. etc', but all your devotees worship you as God and that is the real message?"

    His response? "If you become enlightened, people will worship *you* also as God"

    WTF? Nice way to be evasive about the question.

    Did anybody else also wonder why something which is clearly an exercise in brainwashing / mind-control / implanting "correct answers" into your mind is called "Inner Healing"? Oh, just believe all my BS and you will be healed. Never mind your mind and its real objections - those are all false and must be cleaned out for healing to happen.

    The Scientologists say the same shit.

    Nice.

  32. Hi Texas ex-devotee, I too had found most modern day gurus are fake. ALL those who change big money (much more than program expenses and any travel expenses) are FAKE.

    It is much better for those who choose to teach meditation for profit be an honest commercial enterprise, not pretending to be a non-profit religious charity. Most of all, please do not pretend to be God, exploiting slave volunteers, ruin their career, break up their families, deprive them of sleep and ruin thier health too.

    Thanks for your quality posts and comments. We know firsthand that being cheated by a fake guru, such as the self-titled 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, is a bitter experience. Your trust as been abused. Yes, you have been violated.

    Just the same, please keep in mind that not all gurus are out to build name and fame for themselves at your expense. Something drew you closer to 'Swami' Nithyananda and don't ignore that calling within. After surviving the 'Swami' Nithyananda experience, we suggest that you give spirituality from other Masters a break for at least half a year or more. This will give you time to heal. For if you hear another Master, your first thoughts will be in comparison to Sri Nithyananda and then you will relive the whole 'Swami' Nithyananda experience again. During this 'cooling off' period, doing selfless seva (volunteer work) and other things that you know are right in your heart are wonderful ways to heal. We also suggest doing at least one meditation, some yoga, and pranayama on a daily basis.

    When you feel that you're ready to start again on the spiritual path of learning from True Masters, we recommend that you study the works of True Masters that have survived the test of time and do not have any hype around them. We recommend Paramahamsa Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda, and Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi to name just a few. First, get a good base and spiritual strength. Then when you meet a living Master, take your own sweet time to get to know him or her. Watch how the devotees treat each other. Does there seem to be some sort of artificial 'urgency', hype, series of expensive programs, easy 'obtainment', hidden agendas? Is there transparency in the Master's life and the organization? What does your gut feeling? That gut feeling is so important. It is Divinity talking directly to you in your inner-voice. Pay close attention to it. Then slowly start again.

    Agreed. It is easy to be bitter and say 'done' for this lifetime. We urge you to keep an open mind and be a little wiser next time around.

    We would also like to say that we do not want this blog to be an anti-guru blog. We just want to expose one hell-of-a-fake that we are qualified to name. We really don't want anyone to fall into Nithyananda's scam like we did. Let us keep our focus on this objective. May we hope that everyone finds peace and spiritual growth from True Sources.

    Jai Maa.

  34. Somebody has made an alternate throne for Nithyananda to sit on. This one seems way more appropriate for Nithyananda. Check it out on the Guruphiliac forum:

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.
