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?

Nithyananda Witness Program: Report Nithyananda's Crime to Keep Society Safe & Dharmic

End Nithyananda's Rape! Stop Nithyananda from Committing Sex Crimes Against Children, Women & Men!

Make a difference! Dismantle Nithyananda's cult! We had Nithyananda in jail before. And, he almost got away scot free with murder, rape, sex with minors, fraud, violence, and other heinous crimes unspeakable, e.g. Nithyananda's Sex Contract. Don't let Nithyananda get away a second time. Don't let Nithyananda have another chance to ruin lives.

Nithyananda's Outfits Come Out of the Closet; Fraud-God in Drag

No Skeletons Found in Nithyananda's Closet; Just Ladies Outfits

Hi there, Sri Nithyananda.  How are you doing today?  Rrrrrrrabu.  Oh, our gruntanese translator says that you're not too happy.  What is it now, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda?  Oh, we see, you, 'Swami' Nithyananda, don't have a thing to wear.  Since you've been a fugitive, you've just keep wearing the same old outfit.  No more space suits, no more Michael Jackson extra outfits, no more Osho-me-too-zoot-suits, no more Sgt. Peppers, no more Star Trek, no more Spring attire from fashion show run way crossed with samba dancers attire, no more.  no more.  Just back to basics.  But, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, we thought that real, genuine sanyasis (renunciant monks) just keep three sets of saffron cloth plus perhaps some undies, and that's all you need.  Is this true, 'Swami' Nithyananda?  We know that being an 'enlightened' healing master that none of the rules applied to you, so we didn't expect much from a dress code.  But, you know, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, if you want to aim for your comeback, you might try to look a little simple and not like a show case for an Indian version of a Liberace wedding.

But, don't worry, 'Swami' Nithyananda, as soon as your goons grease the right palms, you'll be right back in that famous penthouse suite in Bidadi and you'll have access to all of your wardrobe once again.  What's this, Sri Nithyananda?  Another article from the Deccan Herald.  Those guys must love you, shall we take a look?:
Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Digs into Swami’s Fund Sources
Oh my gosh, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, look! The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) took at least 120 saffron robes and other outfits including several ladies' outfits, dresses, and sarees. 'Swami' Nithyananda, did you save those for your room service ladies or were they souvenirs that they left behind? The Deccan Herald didn't go into much detail, but now we have a glimpse that perhaps when sometimes-Swami Sri 'Stonewall' Sachitananda asserted that Dhyanapeetam was a very transparent organization, now we begin to see. Perhaps we're beginning to see all right... see through it all. That is quite a revealing revelation about you and your wardrobe, 'Swami' Nithyananda. Wow, 120 outfits. Why simple math that means that you can wear one a day, every day, for a whole season, and still not have to do a single load of laundry. We guess that bachelor living style is something that just doesn't go away after wandering all of those, ah, zero years, in the Himalayas.

Say, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, with over 120 outfits, this puts you in the same league as Imelda Marcos. Shall we now call you Nithymeldananda? Yes, 'Swami' Nithyananda, the police said that you had a ton of accessories. We bet they were all 24(K) gold, were they not? What were these accessories? Oh, we see, 'Swami' Nithyananda, there were female jewellery like earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and belly-button (navel)rings. Were these all for you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda? Why of course, we forgot about your special Devi Darshan, you know, where you masquerade as the Divine Mother and parade in front of all your brainwashed followers to gauge exactly how brainwashed they really are (and perhaps to gauge which ones are physically aroused).  Sorry, to say, 'Swami' Nithyananda, but you come off as a cheap so many ways.

OK, Sri Nithyananda, yes, we now remember your antics at the last Life Bliss Engineering Program where you even wiggled a little. Sri Nithyananda, is that where you got that catty laugh of yours? Well the first time we heard that, we seriously thought that a chicken was stuck somewhere in the egg laying process. Then we realized that it was just you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda.

'Swami' Nithyananda, we would love to go on and roast you some more, but we already wrote about your old queen habits in this post:
Divinity Celebrates Swami Nithyananda's Jayanti (Birthday) with a Mirror Universe of Truth Website
So, we won't go over them again. Just that we were a lot shocked about how you might be luring in young men into the mix. We never saw anything like that happen in Los Angeles, but then again, we would never put anything past you. You sir, are very resourceful, but in all the wrong ways.

So, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, what else did the police take? Did they take your vanity mirror with all the little make-up lights? That special hair remover of yours, you know, how you got your legs to be so silky and smooth? 'Swami' Nithyananda, they better not have taken your curling iron. That would have been too much. Stop! Police brutality! Give back Swami his curling iron 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 fake and fraudulent cult scam.

Day 122: One Hundred and twenty-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 144: One hundred and forty-four days have passed since Sri Nithyananda and his organizations have threatened a baseless lawsuit against us. We'll keep on counting.


  1. Nithy in hiding in Chennai :

    Sources indicate that Nithy is in one of his relatives house - posh bungalow worth crores, so what is the CID team doing in Bangalore ?

    Do anyone have details of this house which he frequently visits during NSP/Kalpataru programs in Chennai ?

  2. I have followed this blog even before the scandal, i watched this chap talk crap about samadhi. Thats was enough for me to believe that this guy is maha fraud.

    The description of samadhi has been copied by many gurus like kalki bhagavan from the famous book of swami yogananda, though i believe that swami yogananda had a genuine experiences it has been used by fraud saints to draw people to them. (360 degree view)

    Let me tell the people here who are half cooked or who have not read the scriptures that samadhi has never been described in scriptures, the gr8 sages themselves refrained
    to explain the state of samadhi or various experiences of higher states, because they did not want to confuse or preprogramm people.

    Hindusim teaches how one can attain the status of god and attain true freedom.

    Frauds like nithyananda, srisri, jaggi and countless others dont allow people to think and be free. They dont preach independence or explain true freedom that the scriptures say. They want to control the masses by fantastic jugglery of words, squeeze them out of their money and fill their stomachs.

    Tirumular the gr8 sage of south india, has written about false saints who wear robe and what punishment they should deserve.

    From Thirumanthiram...


    1655 Men of false robes know not Siva You fools! With false robes you deceive people Your pretension but helps you gorge yourself fast with food;Well may you sing and dance and weep and wail And thus may Siva seek,Yet never, never shall you glimpse His Feet.

    1656 Men of false robes bring famine When those that have not acquired Jnana Don the holy robes And go about the land begging,And evil ways pursuing,The rains fail and famine strikes the land;Better by far, these evil men are de-robed straight.

    1657 Let Government lead people in the way of Virtue A land's weal and woe are in its people Out of good deeds and evil do they spring;And so,If the ruler unceasing leads the multitude in virtue's way,That land in prosperity waxes ever.

    1658 Why they don the Holy Robes The lowly-born don the robe That they may the high become;The high-born don the robe That they may the Gods become;To infamy-born are the knaves in robes That they be disrobed and cast away.

    1659 Tapas--True and False They who perform false tapas enter hell They shall not become the holy ones;False tapas is deceit and vain effort A ruse for worldly enjoyment;Only by Truth of Jnana can tapas firm abide.

    1660 Discerning eyes see through false robe They don the false robe their bellies to fill;They don the true robe and receive exalted oblations above;Even if false robes are donned to simulate the true,The discerning see through, and make themselves free.

    Nithya in jail is anandam!

  3. Looks like Lenin's case is weak. Cheating and hurting public sentiments will work but not enough for jail time in India. But, if someone files atleast a public interest case about the tax/financial fraud, maybe things will catch up as in Maddof's case. Any thoughts?

  4. CID team,

    Please see the fraud right from the beginning of the first acharyas ordaining --- so called Lord Dakshinamurthi in Nithy's hairstyle .... fraud begins right there for all acharyas to see...doze or be alert there !!!

    Check out all the Acharyas list and interrogate each one of them for their hand in continuing their fraud legacy.. thru and thru... on Shivaratri day in 2005 !!

    Maha Shiva Rathri 2005 & First Acharyas' ordaining - at the ashram

  5. Alright...I'm posting this as I'm seeing there is too much talking and no action. Comments might be a little strong but in deservant to the current situation.

    Well....I read a news article where the CID have all these sex tapes of but no witnesses want to come forward. Really...Why is EVERYONE soooo scared of coming forward, so justice can be served. I sure some of you witnessed shady things happening from the organization to N come on this blog daily hoping someone else came forth with the truth. I mean we have over a million hits on this site, come on Really. For ALL those who know something and/or were INVOLVED with the sexual liasons in anyway this is your time to STAND UP!!! STOP BEING COWARDS and STAND FOR something instead of complaining or waiting for the blog writer/s to pull through for everyone.

    I do understand that the women involved are too embarassed or ashamed to step forward and admit their participated in the extracurricular activities with N. That's okay many of us adored him, some even more than our husbands. I remember male or female if he paid any extra attention to you, you really felt special and significant and those around you envyed you. I know many of you relate to this. So it understandable that if he really paid more attention to you and asked for 'special' service, Why not????

    I understand that women in India are like second class citizens. They barely can even stand up aganist their own husbands let alone the public. If I'm wrong, prove me wrong and really stand up for yourself and all those who have and are continuously being victimized by this clown. I know you are reading this in hopes someone else will, but I'm writing to tell you that it is YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Popat Savla has now publicly claimed all money back... more news about this fraud in today's Deccan Herald newspaper. Savla wants $2.5 mil back now.

  7. Looks like Nithyananda has been practicing profusely! The video documentation of his sexual acts is quite a collection. But the problem is that the affected people are not coming forward.

    "another problem that the investigating officers have encountered is the fact that even though they have enough videos to substantiate the sexual charges against Nithyananda they are unable to find witnesses who would give statements to support the visual evidence."

  8. Settle down, Anon. Things have been going this way for weeks around here, and I assure you that you're not the first one to try to speed up the process. (See the initial article on the CID, three posts ago; everyone tried convincing me they were all working hard on it...)
    Our hope is that the CID can handle it themselves. They seem to have found a lot of interesting stuff during their raids.

  9. To Anon at 11:45 Am

    Look at the news papers,do you think the name of the person(women) who comes forward will be a secret ? It will be all over the newspapers and then the women won't be able to live a respectable life again in India. At least now people don't know their face or name. So they will be able to live somewhere,hopefully. Already they must be finding it hard to live with the abuse.
    From the information I have most of them were uneducated and poor brahmacharinis.Some people know the people who were abused but they are not revealing the names because of the promise they made to the victims.
    Now the Nithyananda supporters may say that is not proof enough,but I do respect former male disciples who have left the organization in the light of these revelations.We need a woman who is mentally strong and I don't think any of those women would be in this category because they were innocent and trusting and hence abused by .....What do you call this man? He is not even a man, a rakshasa. Unless one of these women takes the form of Chandi or Durga there is little hope.
    Even if a woman does come out,the statement itself won't be enough , just as the video is not enough.The women might be asked for proof.What do you think she will be able to produce ? Living in US a woman will be able come out and live but in India that woman will be treated like dirt by even her own family without any compassion. These women don't have education or anything to support themselves.

    It makes my blood boil to see that there are women still supporting this man.We were all a family before how come you don't feel for these women and you listen to a man who left our family in trouble ?He abused our family in the name of enlightenment.
    Ram advaith feels for them, and the LA ashramites and every other person who is against Nithaynaanda feel for them. What would it take for you to have your loving compassionate side again ? Something that you lost for NIthyananda.

  10. For people who say what's wrong with consensual sex?
    Do you remember the Devadasi tradition.The women who got into this really thought that they were serving god (some were forced into it). Women were just used and abused in the name of god.Maybe Nithyananda will start a tradition of NithyaDaasis. Do you want to wait and make it happen? Today would you like your wife or daughter or sister to become one ?Think about it.If your answer is no ,then it's time to come out of the Nithyananda Swamp.

    He talks about breaking frame.
    Lets talk about breaking the frame of a Guru. What is breaking the frame, tomorrow he will tell us that a guru can also be a sanyas AND also get married, a smuggler, a pimp, murderer, all these will also break the frame. Are you ready for the next frame breaking?

  11. I do agree with the lady above(APRIL 8, 2010 11:45 AM), the victims should come out and speak. There is no point hiding like a frightened rat while this creep gets away with it.

    As an Indian iam truly ashamed of my country men and women, govt officials and politicians.

    In this country you can buy anyone with money,
    like cheap whores, govt officials can be bought.

    All those officers will be very nice , but behind they will try to make as much money as possible.

    They have to a continuous pressure from media and people to get things done.

    The only hope to spread awareness is through this blog. If there are million hits then its good, 'cause these many people have woken up.

    Public opinion is must, even if nithya survives, people here in Tamil Nadu will never accept him thats for sure.

    Thanks to sun tv, nakeeran, this blog, deccan herald and naturally Lenin for there fight against this fraud setup.

  12. Looks like Shri Shri is going to be in LA on April 17 to grab the opportunity to get Nithy's followers.

  13. Here's the full article from Deccan Herald.Whoever this Chandan Nandy is, God bless him. DH are definitely doing a better job of covering this than any other newspaper.

  14. Anon@4:32PM. Why do you have to sing the tune of some westners(no offence to anybody) and be ashasmed of your country men and women, I don't understand. Do you know who difficult it is for women in India (especially those in lower strata) to come out and say that something like this happened to them? I mean admitting it is one thing but do you know how it will affect their life later? Whatever said and done, marriage is still socially important in India. Do you think women whose names get out in this can get married or if they are already married, you think their husbands will accept them? It is very easy for people like you and me sitting here in US and earning well to talk. Will you support these women in their life later on? I mean for both of us Nithy is the common enemy and I agree with you that people have to be bold and come out with the truth otherwise it will be difficult to put him behind bars but really it's easier said than done.

  15. CID officials await the arrival of Douglas McKellor, a US national who lodged a complaint against the godman, alleging that his wife had abandoned him under the swami’s influence. “We cannot register any case based on that complaint, but we can use McKellor as a witness,” said the officer

    Has Mr. McKellor has already left to India? Is that all in his complaint - wife had abandoned him under the swami’s influence - ? Was expecting something substantial. Oh Well lets wait and see.

  16. Popat Savla came to every program in the US saying how Nithy is Jesus + Krishna and beyond. He single handedly signed up scores of people for IA. I remember he even said how he put in $2 million but how he got back $10 million. Now he is trying to escape by blaming others and asking for his money back. Maybe he should give all the affected people the $10 million he made before taking back his $2 million from the organization. It is funny how when sh_t hits the fan these top people are saying its every one elses fault except theirs.

  17. what a whole lot of contradictions this fake godman is made up of

    the deccan herald news says that he has been calling all his rich devotees to stay with the organization.

    if he has resigned why does he care ?
    if he is on silent meditation to heal his devotees what is he doing speaking on the phone ?

    what a a phony person... forget godman.. he is not even a good human being.

    also noticed a marble murti of this dude in some pictures in the temple website.. looks like a little devil who sneaked into the LA temple and sat comfortably below one of the idols in the temple.
    you can also see abhishek done to this little devil.. What a shame !!

  18. anon@3:48 PM

    Excellen! Great logic! Very much impressed.

  19. Maheshwara was Nithy's biggest mouth piece. I think he actually profitted out of the 2.5 Million deal. He told the whole world that he made an 8 Million dollar profit. This guy was an ex OSHO follower. I think he probably knew what Nithy was doing but he choose to look the other way since he was used to OSHOS tricks. Since the $h!t hit the fan he and the other goons in LA are running, just to show the law that they are upset.

    He wont even get 2.5 dollars from Nithy. Nithy must be hearing all this and rolling on the floor and laghing is ar$$ off of course with some broads around him.

  20. Dear Popatji, Dr Rambhatla, Shindeji,

    If you are reading this, please let us know how we can join in the demand to get our money back. Obviously you guys have given huge donations. While individuals like me have not to that tune, regardless my donation is over $35,000, which in my case is a significant amount of money. Like me there are tons of people, just in my city alone (let alone other cities). We could all collectively put one huge demand/complaint/class action lawsuit, which will really be helpful in this case. I know so many people who want to get their money back, but we do not have the means to hire expensive lawyers etc. However when done collectively, this will be lot more effective and cost effective too for everyone.

    Please consider this request sincerely and let us know by posting here or contacting the blog owner how we can join this as a collective group. I am sure other regular readers here will agree with me.

    Thank you!

    Ganesh (I am using a fake alias here)

  21. CID team,

    Please investigate the following and request blog owner not to tweak anything from this post seriously.... :

    Hi Anon@ April 7, 2010 5:29 PM

    Reproducing your quote :
    In Bangalore ashram, one person who participated in a meditation program, died while practicing a meditation conducted by Ma Priya Mayi, a.k.a. chitra narang, mahachaya who lives in Bangalore. Pujananda and the other criminal bramacharis of the Bididid ashram and many of the other ahramites know about this murder.

    Can you give some more details, as this will be a good evidence to Yogappa's team ?

    Reqeust blog owner to also get direct feedback from other criminals including Atmamaneesha (Mr. Tiwari, varanashi ashram head), Ma Baktika, Ma Achalananda, Ramanathan (Ma Bhaktika's dad, main chennai organizer), Prakasam (Main salem organizer), Shaambavananda / Narayana - another Chennai organizer, Nisha (delhi organizer), Ma Sneha Mayi / Chitra Harian (San Jose coordinator), Nithya Ajara, a.k.a. Arun Prasant, Dheera, Sri & Ma Arpana, ma chandrananda, ma swaroopa (hasmitha dallas/okc), sri kirtana, nithyeshwar, sri atma prabha, etc. or an interrogation by the Police Authorties so Nithy will be counting his days in Jail for the rest of his life. They will all sing and give more details/proof of what actually happened in this case !

    This would really turn the tables if many such insiders who cannot see right from wrong now, but will still do some good justice to humanity !

  22. CID Tean,

    Can you check all the cheating/fraud accounting done for funds received thru PAYPAL ( programs/galleria items etc... and verify the policies/processes followed as shown in :

    Also, cross verify with Lenin how the sales revenue got used elsewhere .... unaccounted for personal accounts stashed allover the globe ?

  23. My big question is to Kaivalya,

    Being a Psychiatrist in US for many years, he has not written what his view is to public at large about this Nihtyananda's sexcapades. What is his view and where does he stand regards to what Nihtyananda is saying vs actually doing this past one month. We know where his friend Malhotra stands.

    Kaivalya, Please come out and tell us like Advith did. At least, Advith is bold enough to come and accept the reality. Where are you in this as you recruited entire hindu leaders of America in to this cult?

  24. CID team,

    Fraud begins at the hole !!

    Check this out and how rich people were enticed to enjoy the straightest drive and longest drive alongwith silent auctions and closest to the pin - wonder which one !!!

    Tee off for Meditation or for putting of a different kind -->

    The greatest tamasha of the millenium entering the 2012 - Golden Satya yuga.... so all this has to end with existential grace, sure will even if Nithy supporters dig deeper in their pockets, which is already full of holes .... ha... ha.. ha....

  25. Hi Nithy... remember the lietales... you created.... to boost yourself in front of gullible public... and most importantly all old Osho devotees and used/learnt all Osho tricks from them to be where you were before, but Dharma stopped you and put you back to the zenith of your life...

    " One day, N! stopped on his way to school and asked him (Yogi Ramsuratkumar- enlightened saint from Tiruvannamalai)if he would pass in his test in school that day. He got a reply, 'You will pass the test of life, my boy!'

    So, are you going to pass the test of your life now in this fashion - like a rat in hiding and mind you Osho's tricks won't be of any use to you now, ever since you stole the 'Om' Signature from Yogi Ramsuratkumar and now you are repaying for creating this big story - a total lie and not befitting the legend of Tiruvannamalai saints !!

  26. Ma nithyananda Sevika of Oklahoma City Temple!! Hmmmm...are you still there Maa?

  27. Hi, this thing about a person passing away while doing meditation with the so called Ma Priya Mayi, a.k.a. chitra narang...I thin this angle should be investigated into...the god god alone knows what other dirty secrets this farce of an ashram is hiding..Ma Priya Mayi, a.k.a. chitra narang is a murderer and so is their so called swamy...anyone have any more details on this please post so that the rightful authorities can investigate the matter.

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.
