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?

Self-Styled Fraud-Man, Nithyananda, Makes Front Page News

Cult of 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda Gets a Cult Following from the Press; Fraud Exposed

Hi there, Sri Nithyananda.  What's going on?  We haven't seen you in a while, 'Swami' Nithyananda.  Are you still hiding? Well, we imagined that you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, have buried your self deep in some rabbit hole with the company of some very fluffy little bunnies. No, no, Sri Nithyananda. You're mind is in the gutter again. Not that Hugh Heffner type of bunny, certainly not. You know, real bunnies that like to nimble on, ah, carrots. That type of bunny. Ah, we see. You, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda are in a fox hole. OK, we don't need any more explanation than that. Good thing its dark in that fox hole, Sri Nithyananda. Do you know that there are digital cameras that can film in the dark? Just thought we would let you know, just in case you decided to shake off that not-so-holy saffron cloth of yours.

Since you, 'Swami' Nithyananda, have been hunkered down like a terrorist, we thought we would bring you up-to-date on some of the latest news. Wow, Sri Nithyananda, look at this! Our friends at the Deccan Herald, specifically, our hero, Sri Chandan Nandy, has done it again. 'Swami' Nithyananda, do you remember Sri Chandan Nandy? Of course you do, he's the one that described you as:
How do we describe such a man? A fraud? A confidence trickster? A villainous manipulator? A sociopath on the loose? [Deccan Harold]
Anyway, they published a yet another scoop about you, 'Swami' Nithyananda:
Nithyananda May Have Forged Birth Documents
There sure seems to be a lot to scoop about you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda. We don't know how you do it... and we don't know how the Deccan Herald did it either, but there it is, that mythical canceled U.S. Visa that some very righteous redneck of government official scrawled on it, "Canceled Pursuant to with Prejudice". That means, you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda. And, look, there it is, your birthday of March 13, 1977. We're so glad that we were able to wish you a happy birthday, on time a few blog posts ago. But, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, if you wrote March 13, 1977 on your official government passport that seems to be issued by the Indian Police, but on other official Indian Government documents you write January 1, 1978, why the difference? Don't you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda know that this is a serious breach against the law? After all, this isn't just some throw-away book of yours where you can revise it any time you want and the only people who would believe it is your brainwashed cult followers. This is the Government of India. If you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, are going to, dare we way, lie about your age, at least you have to be consistent. Because, if you are not, you could be open to even more criminal charges. Looks like Sri Chandan Nandy already wrote down those laws that someone could easily make more criminal complaints about you. Here they are:
  • Indian Penal Code’s Section 420 (cheating)
  • 468 (forgery for purposes of cheating)
  • 471 (using as genuine a forged document)
Wow, the Deccan Harold not only has investigative journalism, they have investigating journalism. We are sure, 'Swami' Nithyananda, that this story will lead to even more stories, with just the right investigation. We mean, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, that with all of the other criminal complaints that are piled up on you, there might be a little bit of wiggle room. And, you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, already prove to be a great wiggler in bed. Now, if you, 'Swami' Nithyananda, can just transfer those same skill set in the court of law, you might be scot free. Of course, after all of this, only perverts and Osho followers will want your darshan, but that's better than rotting in some prison doing hard labor. Anyway, with these new allegations, it will be pretty darn hard not to prove that you willingly lied somewhere along the path to the Government of India. 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, do you advocate people to be honest and truthful even to the Government? Well, we sure would like to see you start sometime.

And, Sri Nithyananda, look at that picture of you, back in 2007. Why you looked young and dashing, you know, the sort of guy that could get any hot yoga chick just by doing a little number on the dance floor. But, now look at you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, we don't even think that a pit bull would want to chew on you. You look so stressed and tired and well, fat. OK, chubby. 'Swami' Nithyananda, if you can just meditate for about 20 minutes a day, it will do wonders for you, like you won't look so middle-aged and empty.
And, look, here 'Swami' Nithyananda, one of your previous follower is now following you again, but in a different way. OneIndia states that City advocate R Karthikeyan is now advocating that you be investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Isn't that like the FBI for India? Wow, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, won't it be harder to bribe them? You might need to pawn all ten of your 24K gold thrones just to cough up enough loot just to begin the process.

And, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, looks like The Hindu, no, no not that Hindu; not the group you cheated and disgraced, this The Hindu, the news paper. It stated that:
Justice Arali Nagaraj termed as ‘unfounded’ the godman’s apprehension that he could be arrested, pending disposal of the case and directed him to approach the proper forum to seek anticipatory bail.
The Hindu also stated that the court rejected EVERYTHING else that you wanted including your "plea for staying of all the proceedings, including investigation". Our friends at the Deccan Harold also ran the story.

And, boy, Sri Nithyananda, we have to congratulate you.  You really picked a top notch solicitor (lawyer) with H.C. Chandramouli. It looks like H.C. Chandramouli has a lot of direct experience with criminal law and being around other criminals. We just loved those kind and concerned expressions on his face while he's surrounded by his gang of men on the YouTube clip. Is H.C. Chandramouli one of your followers? Maybe you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda can cut a deal with him and pay him with energy darshans.

Sorry to say there, Sri Nithyananda, sounds like you struck out, there in court. Does this mean that you will stay in hiding? And, we don't have to listen to your nasal screech and view your crocodile smirk of sincerity? But, wait, wait, 'Swami' Nithyananda, what's this here?

Oh, that was so nice of you to come out of your terrorist hiding and spend some time with the Nithya Youth Brigade, you know, the one that has completely disbanded because they got tired of you telling them not to do the same things that you do in private. Sri Nithyananda, you set such a good example. We think there's so many parents that must have modeled their behavior after your teachings. "Don't do as I do, do as I say." Now, that sounds like an original quote from you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda. Anyway, it was good to see you back being your old self, even getting a few kisses from that hot yoga chick. And, 'Swami' Nithyananda, we really do appreciate you cleaning up your act. Why that yoga chick didn't show all of that skin and wrap her legs around you while the camera was filming. That really shows the constraint you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, have. Why you were able to control your senses! We glad to see that you, 'Swami' Nithyananda, are on the right track for a comeback. Can't wait to see what happens next.

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.

Day 110: One Hundred and ten 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 132: One hundred and thirty-two days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.


  1. Hilarious video. LOL

  2. What a disgrace Nithyananda has become to Hindu community. What an embarrassment. Let’s all hope he will not become another Rajneesh and cause more disgrace by continuing his Tantra experiments which by the way pretty pathetic excuse..


    February 5, 2009 - 8:43 PM

    Last night, I was so distraught over my experiences with Nithyananda that I googled the question of whether anyone else was having trouble with gurus. When I saw the topic of this discussion, I felt compelled for the first time in my life to participate in an online discussion. I've never done this before so I hope I am doing this right. Last night, my reply didn't go through, so I'll try again.

    Someone in the discussion said they'd never heard of anyone who'd had a bad experience with Nithyananda. I must respond. I was initiated into Yogananda's line. I met Nithyananda within several years of his alleged enlightenment experience, when he first started coming to America, and I even helped him gain a greater presence in my city. I speak from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE. Yes, his powers are profoundly vast, he can accomplish just about every miracle that a saint can do, and in his presence one feels that everything is wonderful. But, for me, that ends soon after he leaves town. My experience with him was devastting, and has led to much spiritual damage. I personally know of others who have experienced similar problems.

    My experience led to an emergency call to Song of the Morning ranch in Michigan to talk with a Yogananda devotee. Then, I made an emergency journey to see Ma Amritanandamayi (Ammachi) about my experience with him. I learned she is well aware of the problem with this person. She would not publically verbally criticize anyone, but her public statement on gurus generally is that if anyone is having a problem with one, they should go to her about it. I will follow her lead and not say much more publically on this and just refer you to go see Ammachi with any questions on Nithyananda. I'm sure you know that many Yogananda devotees go to see Ammachi. Her website is, and you can get info on her tours there.

    I can say this, with great certainty from my perspective: NITHYANANDA'S ENERGY IS NOTHING LIKE PARAMAHAMSA YOGANANDA'S ENERGY, AS I HAVE EXPERIENCED YOGANANDA'S ENERGY. THERE'S NO WAY NITHYANANDA COULD BE YOGANANDA. Nithyananda takes you in meditation to a place of complete, total blackness--there's absolutely no light there. He says that's what one experiences in enlightenment--complete, total blackness. There was one procedure he did that I was hesitant to participate in, so he turned himself into looking like Babaji, so I would think it would be ok. I went through with it, thinking he was Babaji. The results have been devastating , and I've never been able to reverse this, even after going to other gurus. To me, it feels like it was a kind of spiritual fraud or betrayal. Know that if one goes to see, him, one may have tremendous difficulty extracting ythemselves from his influence,.

    You have not heard about the number of people who've had bad experiences, on this forum, probably because they are too devastated--or frightened--to put it in writing (or trying to put him out of their mind completely to get over their trauma). With me, if I saying anything that is not positive about him, I am attacked by a very bad dark force. That's why I've re-written this to reduce what I say and just refer you to see Ammachi. Since I cannot know what is best for you, you might consider asking her personally if there would be any harm in your going to see Nithyananda--BEFORE you go to see him, if that is what you are contemplating doing.

    I emphasize he has profound power and I did learn some things--at great personal and financial expense. But, I'm wondering if I wlll ever get over what happened to me. The experience left me deeply wounded and spiritually damaged.

  4. I've been following the scandal on Google News, Google Web, Google Videos, Google Images, and Google Blogs. It appears that Nithyananda's web people have been working overtime, as in the past few weeks the top web posts have changed from information on the sex and criminal scandals on Google Web, Videos and Images, to those links and photos promoting Nithyananda and his preaching.

    It appears that his team is manipulating the web using SEO and other web techniques, and has been successful at pushing back the negative reports so people won't easily see the negative unless they specifically type "Nithyananda cult" or "Nithyananda fraud" in the search engine. They may be working on washing this out as well, although this would be much harder to do.

    When the scandal first broke, I found out about your very important blog by simply searching the name "Nithyananda" in the Google Blogs search engine. At that time there was a list of "Related Blogs" listed at the top of the first web page, and at that time your blog was included in that list. This made it very easy for me to find you. However, your link no longer appears in the "Related Blogs" list after searching Nithyananda. This is what now appears on the first web page after clicking on the search engine.

    Related Blogs: Welcome to the Nithyananda Vedic Temple -

    Nithyananda Newsletter -

    PodOmatic | Podcast - Paramahamsa Nithyananda Podcast -

    Your blog link has been missing from this list for the past four or five days, as I have been checking every day.

    Presently, the only way to see your link as a "Related Blog," on the top of the Google Blog web page, is to type in "Nithyananda cult" in the search engine.

    The problem, of course, is the more Nithyananda's web people bury the negative information, the easier it will be for him (and them) to fool more people worldwide. This also help open the door for him to seep out positive publicity, which will change the negative perception about him.

    I noticed that one of his ashrams is setting up a Nithyananda Technical Institute:

    This may be a coincidence, but I think what his team may be planning is to continue working on burying the negative information on the web, and then when the dust clears, flood the Internet with information on the positive works he is doing. You know that much of the Indian press will report on information exactly the way they receive it, and we know that the masses tend to have a short memory. I think the Nithyananda's people are banking on this short memory, and although it may take a few weeks or months, they will come back even stronger, unless others continue to report the other side of his story and keep reminding everyone of the truth about him.

    The reality is that Nithyananda and his workers will eventually drown out the bad news with news of their good works, and again, once the dust is cleared they will be able to easily move forward and fool thousands more. People will forget or vaguely remember the negative after a period of time lapses. This is a pr trick that works if the timing is right. But it won't work well if the truth keeps surfacing, in the press and on the web. So it is important to tell reporters the truth and keep posting the truth on the web.

  5. As we can see, the problem is that Nithyananda's life is not transformed. He is clearly not self-realized and is delusional. If he is allowed to continue, this will only get worse.

    It is God's Mercy that exposed him, giving him and others a chance to turn from their harmful ways, drop the facade, the women and gold, and seek the true, humble and ego-less path to self-realization. If after all of this exposure, Nithyananda is still tied to earlthy pleasure and continues to rope people into his web of deception, then the karma of all he is harming will be not only on his head, but also on the heads of those who continue to help him achieve his self-serving, and self-centered goals. These goals, are devoid of true spirituality. But it is not too late for them to seek God's forgiveness and leave these ways of deception.

    No Nithyananda, we are not all Jivanmukti, including you. This is apparent when we do wrong things to others for our selfish gain. Only when we truly renounce women and gold, and all the things that the illusory ego craves, only when the ego is truly transformed and purified, will we become Jivanmukti.

    There are no short-cuts or tricks to realization. You are sliding down a slippery slope if you think there is and you are draging thousands of people into this abyss of darkness and deception with you. The money, fame, and vices may be pleasing now, but there is always a price to pay in eternity for these wrong actions. Think about your future, and your future incarnations. It is best Nithyananda, if you wake up and stop these wrong actions. Stop fooling yourself. It is obvious you are not a self-realized master.

    There is nothing wrong with admiting this and dropping the circus act.

    Think about what is at risk here. Your soul and the souls of others you have dragged down are at stake. It is not too late to admit your wrongs, that you are not realized at this point, and sincerely apologize to others, and really seek the true path of spirituality with kindness, true renunciation, humility and compassion for others. The self-glorification and adoration you have received has lead you and others to delusion. This is what is destroying you, even now. Only a truly realized soul is completely detached from all. Be honest and humble and admit you have not achieved this, and move on to what is right action. It is never too late to turn from what is wrong.

  6. To clarify regarding DOB of Nithy, as of I know, in India there is/was a practice of having official birthday and actual birthday. It is illegal but,as an example when kids tend to lose 1 year just because of couple of months difference in age requirement for schools, parents used to give a different birth date for official records which get carried forward to other official docs like passport. You may find a lot of such cases in India. May be now in India, because of computerization and hospital births (was not common years back), things have changed. So my point is Nithy is not the only criminal in India who has forged the birth date. In US I agree the DOB is treated very seriously. So chances are that Nithy is belonging to this and he may not have purposefully done to scam/cheat. I am not justifying this, but if this is a criminal charge, I personally know lot of people in India who are criminals :-).

  7. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Hi Anon @6:53,

    Just a small point of clarification. The technical institute of learning that you mentioned has zero connection with Nithyananda, his cult, and his criminal organizations. The Times of India misspelled 'Nityananda' (no 'H'). Unfortunately for these folks (without an 'H'), will be marred by NitHyananda (with an 'H' as in 'hell') for many years to come. Hinduism and Sanatan Dharma also took a big hit. But, Truth will come out.

    Thanks for your concerned about our SEO ranking. Any back links from other sites, blogs, webpates, Tweets, etc. will definitely help us become higher in Google’s listings. Please feel free to help and create links. Many thanks.

    Jai Maa.

  8. Om Namah Shivaya,

    To the morally challenged commenter who claims to teach at Stanford University and condones other professors/teachers taking drugs and having sex with students along with singing the ‘virtues’ of Nithyananda’s ‘accomplishments’. You are sick. We will give your depraved comments special treatment in a future blog post. Until then, please seek psychiatric help. You are dangerous to yourself and those around you.

    Jai Maa.

  9. Om Namah Shivaya,

    Yes, anon @8:00 AM. We realize that the D.O.B. wiggles a bit, but at least 'Nithyananda Swami', a.k.a. Raj, could have been consistent with his lie.

    And, yes, we personally know many criminals too. Lots of Ashramites and inner-circle perpetrators of fraud. Soon the authorities will be investigating them soon. Truth will prevail.

    Jai Maa.

  10. Hi Anon @ 8:00 am,

    Please clarify the truth about Nithy's 5 years of his life at RK mission which is not mentioned anywhere in Ashram books, which would definitely demystify all illusions about radiating living enlightenment and host of other miracle stories on the riverbeds of Ganga/Narmada ?
    Don't get debunked by this one as this is authentic stuff for you to tell the real story unlike the institute wala : Is this Nithy's next move to deny RK mission life ?

  11. Hi Anon @ March 27, 2010 8:00 AM ,

    If Nithy's DOB is 13 March 1977, then it debunks the stories of his glorious spiritual saintly future as predicted by his astrologers... pooh pooh, this is slick boomearang for Nithy... so please clarify whether astrologer prediction stories are a big lie to start off with and carried forever endlessly at each and every timeline, so everything is debunked from the base of this DOB !!! LOL... what's next for Nithy -- count the jail bars until each lie is unwound to the public thread bare .... nakedness as in the videos...

  12. Where the hell is Nityananda? Why is there no arrest warrant on him yet? How long will the Karnataka police take sorting through this bull5h!t of translation from Tamil to Kannada?

    Where are all the records that he told will make public("in a day or two") in the interview? Well another lie, we are never going to see those.

    Obviously, Nithy is too well connected to the people in power who will do anything to delay the investigation and his apprehension.
    Meanwhile, its business as usual for his numerous outfits. All his sites that sell overpriced items in the name of bliss are still functioning. His devotees still posting on his site and the b.s goes on and on.

  13. I wanted to post my comment from "Stop the defamation" website. BTW, thanks for the link. I got a redirect from here! This is "Switzerland" speaking :)

    Stop the defamation! No one deserves it. Yes, by all means if you believe you have certain aspects to highlight, do it with sincerity and not malice. Even if your allegations are true (and let the legal process be judge of that), let there be no trial by media including online media and let's follow the rule of the land "innocent until proven guilty". Hey, even Bill Clinton, the then incumbent US President (after being legally found guilty), also did not receive such defamation and malice (snide jokes yes but hateful malice - NO!) and despite impeachment hearings, remained as the President and continues to serve noble causes like Haiti at the National Stage of the United States! And, who could singularly be more powerful than the President of USA in the world. How many women were involved then? The President lied on national TV i.e. perjury!? Yet. We treated "him" with respect and criticized his "actions".

    Why then should a PRIVATE spiritual guru not get that decency. Why do we (the society) have these double standards?! Bill gets a proper legal hearing but the guru gets this!? Do the defamers have an ulterior agenda? Are they inadvertently diluting their own cause?! Is feeling taking over reason?! Everyone has a right to privacy (even the Indian Supreme Court says so!) and the right to a fair trial to present/refute arguments. Patience is a virtue so let no one but the courts pronounce a judgement and without a legal/final judgement, especially when a legal process is underway, the defamers have no "moral" right to "overtly or covertly influence" people to their "view" against the Swami. By highlighting what you observed was "the slip between the cup and the lip", you've done a commendable "moral" job to educate and alert potential devotees.

    Here's an analogy - Cigarettes have a statutory warning but adults still have the final right to consume despite this knowledge. SO, please stick to your legitimate purpose of "sincere education" or "being the public version of a statutory warning" ONLY and not dictate (or seen to be dictating) what one (a devotee/or potential one) should "consume". Else your "noble" cause would stink of "conspiracy"! Hey, US citizens chose "Bill" despite his "flaws" so let the global citizenry choose its "gurus" with/without flaws.

    Funny but true.. the path of Dharma is a narrow one!

  14. Good intellectual gibbrish...

    We can see the sex video of Nithyananda and judge ourselves. We don't need innocent until proven guilty as he told us that he was a sanyas, took kavi and saffon cloth because he needs no sex.

    So, all your argumnents are moot. If this were to be a rumor we would be on your side. But, we have eyes and we see no morphing nor Tantra in the video. It pure sex!

    It's fraud and deceit!

  15. @ anon the joker MARCH 27, 2010 11:34 PM

    Your post is a classic example of how to destroy India and Hinduism. You give lots of advise on virtues but you fail to see that the faker has never had any virtue. You sound like Rajiv Malhotra, you are all disgrace to any religion. Justifying acts such as this only helps us to understand your upbringing.
    Please understand this is not defamation but an expose. A true story of of fraud and deceit.

    There is nothing like private, if you have broken a law then you need to face the law, this guy deserves all this. If you dont like it please STFU.

    Cmon what are u? a retard .

    Cant believe such people exist among us who dont have any empathy on thousands of sufferers but are supporting a single disgusting fraud.

    To the owner of the blog -- what are u doing?when our comments are not being posted on their site, you are posting their comments here, please dont give the excuse that you thought it is rajiv malhotra.

  16. Hey, it's all right to judge others. Whatever is said on this blog can be only accepted or rejected, and it is not to be examined as any actual judgment.
    The courts will tell. Their decision has legal power. If someone is unwilling to hear the opinions on this blog, this speaks of its actual impact and nothing else.

    I don't think he is as powerful as you claim he is. I had met him at Kalpataru. It is hard for me to describe what I felt - it was a feeling of euphoria and ultra alertness. But that did not last long.

    I am not sure about your experience with Nithyananda but there seems to be quite few who are immune to his Siddhi's.

    Dharmananda has been, is and will be.

    Isn't it ironic that Nithyananda names Lenin Karuppan - Dharmananda and Dharma prevails.

  18. To the Anon at MARCH 27, 2010 11:34 PM

    These words do not make any sense. If you truly trust that Law should take its course, let Law come and stop the comments on this blog. Why are you trying to dissuade us here? We do not need your 'moral' lessons.

    The very word DHARMA means LAW. The very Dharma which existed since time unknown precedes the Law of Court which you are referring to. But, we will let the Law of the Court decide what it can do. At the same time the final pronouncement of leaders of Dharma has already been given: 1. Don't want him in Kumbha Mela. 2. Fake Babas should be hanged etc.

    Sanyasi has to follow rules of conduct described in books of Dharma. He can not have sex and a host of other bad qualities common and tolerated for common man are to be completely shunned by the sanyasi. No name fame or accumulation of wealth, and sleeping with dozens of married and un-married women !! Rama! Rama!

    So, do not exhibit your ignorance by taking the excuse of Law.

  19. This is "Switzerland" again:

    @ Anonymous MARCH 28, 2010 1:22 AM: I'm not on any "side" i.e. for/against Nithyananda (or the labels "guru" or "fraud" etc.) but standing-up for "truth/sincerity/respect" for all individuals (which includes Nithyananda as a private human being). By all means, please make the judgement that you believe is right for you.

    I think the site has done a commendable job. I have been following it even before the videos broke out because even my own experience with the organization got me searching the web and this site. I think the blog owners had asked the right set of questions pertaining to enlightenment, DOB, etc. some of which are being verified/validated, for example, interview with RK mission, Visa copy etc. This was done in a mature, insightful manner. So congratulations guys!

    However, since the scandal, while it is understandable why lesser mortals would resort to name-calling and cheaper gimmicks, the blog writers who have so far taken the higher "moral" ground (which pre-dates the sex videos and subsequent drama) should not dilute their own legitimate cause by getting distracted with this "dog and pony show" or "media circus/gimmicks" and continue with trying to get factual answers to the remaining questions. This would be a real win. So my earlier post asked that everyone should let the blog owners keep to this narrow path of Dharma.

    It is the defamers and the likes of @ Anonymous MARCH 28, 2010 3:51 AM who seem to be the lesser mortals who by easily resorting to "feeling" than "reason" are trying to make this informative website into a Kangaroo court with meaningless arguments. Remember the old saying "everything looks yellow to a jaundiced eye!". He/she even thought I was Rajiv Malhotra - imagine this paranoia! But, that's this individual's limitation and lack of ability to deal with this situation.

    @ Anonymous MARCH 28, 2010 8:27 AM: it is people who make "gods" out of "mortals". If one had treated him as a "mortal with some unusual powers" then I don't think they would be this angry or emotional with his very "mortal" behaviour. People who are so impressionable are easily fooled. Perhaps, education is key. That's where this website comes in. It is helping unmask the "god" to a "mortal".

    My concern is that because people are so disappointed in the fall of "their god", the pendulum is being swung far in the other direction. This is not the way a civilized society behaves and that's why I highlighted Bill Clintion's example. And, the scriptures can be interpreted in whatever way - but as per Paramhansa Yogananda's line of gurus, a family life and a spiritual one can co-exist. Swami Lahiri Mahaysaya was a Swami and a family man. When the society has an unreasonable expectation that ALL swami's are celibate or should be celibate..they are setting themselves up for disappoinment. Because, the reality is some are, some are not - it's an individual choice, which everyone should respect.

    Being "switzerland" i.e "neutral", I would just not like the website owners to swing too far the other side. Using photos of cockroaches etc may be fun but perhaps can be on another site since this site has an excellent "factual" informative positioning which is getting diluted. The bloggers (including defamers etc.) of course, are welcome to voice their opinions in the comments section.

    No further reply from me. To each his/her own. Love one and love all (with all their short-comings) - that's true hinduism (to me) - and to "accept" the unfolding reality graciously.

    Over and out!

    The only thing i liked in your post was 'over and out'.

    It will be very good for the blog and future generations to avoid seeing your funny posts.

    You are a gr8 fool, by comparing gr8 men like Lahiri Mahaysaya and bringing them to this discussion exhibits your desperation.

    You have no idea of pain felt by people, it would be better if someone from your family is 'blessed' by nithyananda the paramour hams. Then probably you will drop this facade of neutrality.

    Your disgusting beyond doubt, i dont know if any spouse would ever would like to stay with a person like you, you will advocate free s3x in your own family and then quote scriptural evidence to support your actions!

    A very shrewd post that was, trying to 'calm' down this rage of emotions by effected parties by trying to squeeze in your new age philosophy, preaching fairness, one wonders why?

    The only reason i feel that you r upset with all the defame post is because you have been as bad as nithyananda and is trying to come here and preaching peace and etiquette to calm your own erupting conscience.

    YOU really DONT have to worry about "informative positioning which is getting diluted" as the blog was started much before you woke up(from scandal)and the blog owner has always been doing a good job with the articles. The blog is a fun place and also a place to ridicule the fake guru as an example to many others who live like him.

    Please dont play proxy --> PR team of Rajiv Malhotra.

    You and people like u are genuine idiots.

    Ah one more thing.. you are not a true Hindu at all. Stop lying.

    "This is not the way a civilized society behaves" .. sure thing but 'they' can come and troll and hijack posts and mislead by philosophy of retarded mentality eh.

    Remember, wherever you discuss this topic you will face ridicule and insults because no one in India (good family) will ever approve your thoughts. Its time out for nithyananda and his sorts of 'gurus'. This blog will help many innocent souls to learn and save themselves from praydators(predators).

    You stay out!

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.
