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?

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.

Nithyananda's Best Case Scenario, from the Ashes of His Sex Scandal Fraud

How '
Paramahamsa' Nithyananda's Following Could Grow in the Ladies' Jail
Hi there, Sri Nithyananda. Sorry, we've been busy with a few projects and just didn't have time to deal with things that are in inertia. Say, how long have you been in police remand? Since April 24? Wow, you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, are becoming a fixture there.  With a little luck, we thought that you, 'Swami' Nithyananda, would become fixed there. Maybe that will happen if the welcoming committee ever catches up to you.  You know, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, perhaps you're better off in jail. At least you're safe and taken care of.  In your own words, 'Swami' Nithyananda, you said that if you were out in the woods doing real wandering, you would starve.  Well, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, we know you're starving right now... for some affection, but at least you're not starving of hunger.  That should help you.

Hey, Sri Nithyananda, did you know that all of your ashramites who are still holed in Bidadi as well as many of your followers who still believe that you really are god in spite of your hanky-panky are now chanting and fasting so you can be united with them again?  Yes, we know, Sri Nithyananda. How touching. Oops. Poor choice of words. Well, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, we wouldn't want to disappoint them.  They seem so sincere, especially the ones that are just plain brainwashed. The others that have an invested financial stake in your criminal empire, might not be as sincere. But, don't worry, 'Swami' Nithyananda, we don't want them to be disappointed either. Hmmm. Seems like there is a pattern here, that a week or two lapses, your case is placed in court, the CID police team says it needs more time, and there you stay. Safe in sound in your cell in the lady's prison. Repeat as needed.

So how can we get you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda united again with all of these chanting and fasting followers? We know, 'Swami' Nithyananda, we'll have all of your followers come to you. That's right, Sri Nithyananda. Since your followers can't expect to see you out any time soon, why not have them all come to you? It's almost as if that would be the logical conclusion. 

'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, let's see how that would work out.  Let's take a look at Ranjitha. Do you still remember her? Of course, you were able to identify her, but had trouble identifying yourself. Let's take a look at some of the pictures to help you remember.

Wow, Sri Nithyananda, that sure is authentic tantric practices.  Look at you practice holistic healing. And, see for someone who was sick, not only did Ranjitha seem to instantly feel much better, but you also looked so blissful. Handy work of a true Master at work.  And, look, there seems to be some hard evidence against your claims of not either being a man nor a women... and just plain impotent.

As you know, 'Swami' Nithyananda, Ranjitha has been hiding  ever since the scandal broke out. We know that the police are looking everywhere for her, and in just a matter of time, the police will find her and bring her in. Since, you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, are already in a ladies' prison, the police could bring her in your cell, and you two could start chirping like two canaries. Is that why they call it sing-sing? 

But, let's not stop here, 'Swami' Nithyananda. After all, since you're holed up in a ladies' prison, just think of the potential to do some more tantric healing! But, to be able to pull off all that scheduling, you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda will need an experienced scheduler to get all those ladies in and out of your cell between interrogation sessions. Why look, here's someone else that's been mysteriously hiding since the scandal broke, but the police are hot on her trail too. Let's take a look at some still shots of those videos, shall we?

Why here's Gopika, also famous signer of your ten-page trantric sex contract, delivering you some nourishment for all of those strenuous tantric healing posses that you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, became famous for.

And, look at these photos, Sri Nithyananda:

Here, we can see Gopika and Ranjitha together in one shot. Wow, that means that they must have been friends, and Gopika, your caretaker must have let her in with her full awareness that you were doing some special night-long healing sessions along with some television breaks with Ranjitha. 

And, look in this photo less than five seconds later (note the time stamps):

Why it's you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, and Gopika.  Of course, you'll deny knowing that's you... or Gopika or even Ranjitha who was visible just moments before... but those forensic labs all stated that these videos were not morphed, manipulated, etc. and that the character in them was you. 'Swami' Nithyananda, did you ever get your results back from London that you were waiting for? Yes, a stiff upper lip, amongst other parts, are certainly needed during times like this. Anyway, look like there's a threesome where each know about the other.

Back to Gopika; since we know that she has scheduled hundreds, perhaps thousands of ladies to receiving your healing touch, she would be perfect to assist your busy schedule inside the ladies' prison. It's not only the in's and out's to cover all those logistics in such matters, but there's an issue with all those bed sheets. Why they will need constantly changing to keep them clean. You do have clean sheets, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda?

But, let's not stop there.  How about your first inmates, Ayya, a.k.a. Swami Nithya Sadhananda and his wife?  Well, sorry to break them the news, but since your second coming, looks like Swami Bhaktananda is now your first inmate. But, don't worry, if the police drag them in now, they will get in early enough to ride nice and high on the peek of your resurrected fame.

And, since you'll be famous and up and going just like your pre-video days, you'll need a whole set of poojaris to keep all the prayers and poojas directed at you, so everyone in prison will know what a 'god' you really are. But, let's not stop there.  You'll need some family members. How about your brother, Sri Nithyeshwarananda?  That way, you'll be able to make sure that his accounting stories account for your godliness. And, your mother, 'Swami' Nithyananda, could be added to the mix. You'll need someone to say that your birthday really was January 1, 1978. So, there's a need for her to be there too.

But, let's not stop there. We can have a honeymoon quarters to house Atmananda and Gnanananda, but in separate quarters, of course. Why we should have every holdout in your ashrams worldwide all come and stay with you. Just think, you'll no longer have to send out for food from the ashram, all your cooks, room-service ladies, everyone would be at your beckon call right there in the ladies prison. Of course, they will be all just too happy being in the presence of their master; just imagine the bliss. And, all of those angry people who think that you, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, actually cheated them and disgraced Hinduism will be pleased as punch to know that you and all of your alleged criminals are behind bars. Why everyone wins! 

'Swami' Nithyananda, do you like that idea? Sri Nithyananda?  Oh, it's time for that convenience samadhi (trance) again. We see that the interrogators have just shown up. We don't know if you can hear us, 'Paramahamsa' Nithyananda, but you sure are consistent, at least in action.

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.


  1. Which brings me to my reason for writing this to you, which is to express to you my concerns for how recent events have been handled and my reason for discontinuing with the Mission. The news event, the youtube video that aired in March of 2009, and the ensuing scandal has always been secondary to me from the way that the recent events were actually handled by you and your top advisers.

    At the core of any organization, is its integrity, which includes being forthcoming with information and protecting those that serve the organization, even when there is disagreement. This is especially true for this organization, in which so many who have served you and the Mission, have done so by completely entrusting their lives to you - and this is where the Mission failed. Witnessing the betrayal, obfuscation of the truth, the utter lack of concern for the well-being of those serving the Mission: these things are beyond any justification.

    As an organization that claims to uphold the dharma and religious values, I do sincerely hope there is introspection that is done my all decision-makers within the organization for the concerns that have been raised.

    The first step, however, is to admit that there is something wrong, and I unfortunately don’t believe there is that sense of humility and responsibility present within this organization at this time. Keeping only those who say “yes”, Swami, is the greatest blunder any leader can make. Healthy organizations thrive because there is a diversity of opinion within the organization, this allows the best decisions to be made from a variety of choices, and for all sides of issue to be considered.

    I had such a deep abiding respect for you, Swami, and all of the Swamis of this order and this tradition, as many others did. I sincerely hope that changes will be made going forward that will restore this respect by putting into place transparency, accountability, and trust within the organization that will insure the dharma is upheld now, and in the future.

    With warmest regards,
    A former devotee

    An Open Letter to Swamiji

    Dear Swamiji,

    I am sure this is one the most difficult letters I have ever had to write. But I know for you, and for me, and for the good of this Mission, it has to be written.

    First, and foremost, I want to express my gratitude to you, for so much and for so many things: for your beautiful and insightful teachings, for the depth of experience your meditation programs provided, for the grace of your darshan, for the remarkable sangha you created around you, for awakening me to the divinity within, for introducing me to the richness, wonder and pure delight of the vedic rituals and traditions. And gratitude for the lessons I am learning now, during this, the most difficult experience I have ever gone through.

    I am quite sure you are my Sat Guru, for no other being but Sat Guru could have brought this kind of life lesson to me with such intensity. There is no where to go but through it, with as much awareness as possible. I will forever mark my life “before” and “after” so greatly has it affected me on so many levels.

    I have served the Mission for fully three years. My seva began as soon as I met you in March, 2007 as a local volunteer in Phoenix, AZ and continued when I left my employer of six years to become a full-time volunteer for the mission in August of 2007. During my tenure, I have served the mission in many capacities, reception, marketing, photography, website, anna mandir, temple, public relations, programs.

    There virtually hasn’t been an aspect of the Mission I haven’t been involved with during the last three years, working from 7:00 am (or earlier) until 11:00 pm (or later). This schedule was maintained, with very rarely a day away from the temple. I state this information just to be clear to you, the level of commitment I had toward you and the mission. Although, I have no doubt, you know the depth of my devotion and my sincerity without me articulating this any of this.

    I also state this background as a reminder for those that want to categorize those who are not continuing with the mission as "outsiders" - they are missing the complexity of the situation. From my perspective - the "outsiders" are acting more in accordance with the spirit of the Mission, Swami, than the "insiders".

  3. Glad to see this coming. For some time, I was thinking that this blog was kinda defunct after it acheived its purpose. But glad to know that the fun continues eternally.

  4. Then where to go? Whom to trust? Today the humanity is so insane. Just earn your bread and die? The viewership of Swami is multiplying on YouTube even now. Because there is no place to trust in life.

  5. This sure sounds like best case scenario for Nithy. Gopika sure deserves to be behind the bars for destroying the future of so many young women & teens.

  6. arent you running out of jokes u idiot?
    first go buy yourself a better sense of humor & then continue your $h!tty blog.

  7. Dear Nithy,

    It’s high time that you bring the curtains down to your case by simply saying the utter truth and accepting with humility what wrongs you have done recently to all your core devotees – insiders and outsiders… otherwise the ladies prison will become the modern day brindavan filled with gopis of your kind to serve you !!
    You have already removed the mask of Avatarhood when you blatantly showed how much conceivable power you had in hiding with dollars and Bhaktas in Himachal Pradesh and now safely shying away from the public in ladies jail……. Read Srila explaining how rascals like you are accepted by other rascals who are doing fake prayers clearly seen in the photos on your website and your rascalness clearly exposed in the still shots in the videos on this blog!!
    Hats off to the blog owner for his patience, consistency in exposing new revelations……. Keep it going stronger and stronger….
    The Twelfth Morning Walk – Symptoms of God -Recorded on May 17, 1973,
    Srila Prabhupada : Without accepting the principle of inconceivable power, no one can understand God. God is not so cheap that any so-called yogi can become God. Such imitation gods are for rascals and fools. Those who are intelligent will test whether or not such a person has inconceivable power. We accept Krsna as God because He has demonstrated His inconceivable power. So one should not accept God cheaply.Nowadays, some rascal comes along and says, "I am an incarnation of God," and another rascal accepts him. But Lord Rama and Lord Krsna actually demonstrated Their inconceivable power. Sometimes people say
    the descriptions of their activities are just stories or myths. But these literatures were composed by Valmiki,[20] Vyasadeva and other
    acaryas, who are all great and vastly learned sages. Why would these great sages simply waste their time writing mythology? They never said it was mythology. They treated the accounts as actual facts. For instance, in the Tenth Canto of Srimad-Bhagavatam, Vyasadeva tells of a forest fire in Vrndavana. All of Krsna's cowherd boyfriends became disturbed and looked to Krsna for help. He simply swallowed up the whole fire. That is inconceivable mystic power. That is God. Because we are tiny samples of God, or Krsna, we also possess inconceivable mystic
    power within our bodies--but only in very minute quantities.

    The Thirteenth Morning Walk - The Devotee Beyond Desires-Recorded on December 2, 1973.
    Srila Prabhupada : Now, who knows the difference between the karmi, the jnani, the yogi and the bhakta?
    Hrdayananda dasa Goswami : The karmi wants to enjoy the gross senses, the jnani wants to enjoy the subtle mind--to mentally speculate--and the yogi wants to manipulate the universe with mystic powers. And the bhakta has no material desires.
    Srila Prabhupada: Yes. And unless one is actually desireless, he cannot be happy. The karmi, the jnani and the yogi are all full of desires;therefore they are unhappy. Karmis are the most unhappy, the jnani is a little less unhappy, and the yogi is still more advanced. But the bhakta, the devotee, is perfectly happy. Some yogis have a mystic power that enables them to snatch pomegranates from trees in another country, thousands of miles away. Others can fly without an airplane. And some
    yogis can hypnotize anyone. Then they point to someone and say, "This is God," and their victims believe them. I have actually seen such magical nonsense.
    It is said that Lord Jesus took everyone's sins upon himself, yet he was crucified. We can see how merciful he was. Today, rascals think, "Let us go on committing sinful activities; Christ has taken a contract to suffer for us." [There is a long, thoughtful silence.]
    To the respected Anonymous @ June 8, 2010 8:29 PM ... do you think Nithy's sins will be suffered/shared by Jesus.... no way unless you want to go NAKED with him.... pls go ahead... all the best !!

  8. ...arent you running out of jokes u idiot?...

    Whoever wrote this should be a really serious guy seriously lacking the sense of humor and fun in life. If he doesn't find it funny, then why even visit this blog? Only this guy needs to "buy the sense of humor" (how funny) instead of reading this blog. He is among the first few to comment - may be he was checking the blog regularly for the new post and humor & fun. For most fun, he can go to Nithy's cell in ladies' prison, hahaha, sorry couldn't help that. There he can have a lot of fun seeing all beautiful ladies. there also he might cry that someone else is having more fun than him. See what happened to Atmananda and Gnanananda? Soon after learning that only Nithy is having fun and not them, they also jumped on to the bandwagon. But this guy is beyond redemption. He can't have fun in life, if he doesn't find this blog funny. Ask any former Nithy devotee, they sure find this very funny and full of humor. If this guy is still a devotee, then he is a suppressed idiot like Gnanananda etc. not able to have fun and blaming everyone for his impotency LOL, sorry again. He should get recommendation from Nithy as to what brand of viagara Nithy takes (he was taking tons of them in the video.) May be that'll help him a bit. May be he is not even a Man, in which case he should go to baktananda. hahahahhha. couldn't help that either. got to go... feel like rolling onthe floor and laughing at this guy...

  9. The open letter from the former devotee is really touching. So true. It brought tears in our eyes. This foundation was not about transparency and accountability. The foundation never will survive because even now the higher ups are hiding things and exploiting young minds. Unfortunately I lost respect for Rajashekaran. He is a megalomaniac. His inner core is fear. From fear came all the insecurities and so the lack of transparency and accountability. He put his close circle in deep fear and depression and so the whole first circle is not transparent. Like Rajiv Malhotra said, there was a lack of feedback. Only positive feedback was encouraged and negative feedback was censured. "Yes, Swami" became the mantra. "No" meant kutarka, ego and what not. Rajasekhran should go back and do real parivrajaka for at least 9 years and only come back when he becomes enlightened if at all. If he doesn't, that's good for the whole world.

  10. The sense of humour is neither better nor worse. The post, alas, is somewhat redundant.
    And yes, "A former devotee", rest assured that Swamiji has read your letter and taken its content into active consideration.

  11. To Anon "June 7, 2010 8:45 AM", former devotee, Montclair, CA:

    You said:
    "I sincerely hope that changes will be made going forward that will restore this respect by putting into place transparency, accountability, and trust within the organization that will insure the dharma is upheld now, and in the future."

    I say, dream on!!!

    I have volunteered and observed Seattle org and the temple for many years now. Its made of lot of crooks and liars. Transparency and accountability two things that you will NOT FIND in the org/vedic temples.

    They can cheat some people all the time and all people for some time.
    They may even cheat all the people all the time but they can't cheat with themselves.

    At the end of the day/life, they have to answer to their conscience... but wait a minute, they don't believe in conscience. They only answer to Master's consciousness.

  12. "...they sure find this very funny and full of humor."
    That would be imprecise. Humour is reasonably kind and is normally implemented to point out particular problems and issues with whatever is being laughed at.
    Irony, which this blog is so fond of, is more "destructive", if I may utilize this word, and is directed at the principal removal of its subject, with no corrections or changes suggested.
    Given the above, I wouldn't call this blog funny, but rather pleasant to read, due to its lexical and metaphorical depth.

  13. To Anon "June 7, 2010 8:45 AM", former devotee, Montclair, CA:

    "At the core of any organization, is its integrity, which includes being forthcoming with information and protecting those that serve the organization, even when there is disagreement."

    I heard from reliable outsider (who was an insider who served the org for many years and came out because of disagreements) that the foundation has started witch-hunt. Not sure exactly the nature of their claim but some sort of defamation suit. As if someone needs to/can defame any more than the actions of core people in this so far.

    BTW, any news about ayya and wife?

  14. @ Anon comedian JUNE 10, 2010 5:41 AM also JUNE 8, 2010 8:29 PM and JUNE 9, 2010 3:27 PM

    What i found most funny are your comments .. LOL

    'Irony, which this blog is so fond of, is more "destructive"'

    You have forgotten that who is the one responsible for this blog ? -> Your beloved s3x guru nithy!

    You are the same joker who has written that nithy has read the letter of an ex-devotee and has taken into consideration...

    You funny man, know that the video has been declared genuine by the cops. Now what you or your s3x guru has to say on that?

    After all that Razzie winning drama on Times News... you know like manipulated, morphed and mis-interpreted.

    Oh ! i get it...he is in samadhi HAR HAR HAR!

  15. Heh. I guess I shouldn't have expected any other reaction. It's not like someone around here is capable of differentiating between humour and irony... how did I dare interfering?
    "You are the same joker who has written that nithy..."
    Surprisingly insightful of you. Indeed that has been me, but, obviously, there's no way
    you could've spotted the sarcasm in that particular statement. (Sarcasm is irony taken even further, just in case that word bothers you.)
    Also, I'd ask you not to confuse me and the June 8, 8:29 PM poster. You either give me too much credit by assuming I could write in that style, too, or blatantly assume that's how I usually write.
    Come to think of it, I do like your idea of me having multiple personalities.

  16. news flash!!!!

    Nithy gets bail....what next????

  17. "No witness against Nityananda in rape case."
    What next? A blog post. What else could it be?


* * IMPORTANT * * After submitting a comment, SCROLL DOWN to see if your comment was submitted or not. Sometimes it takes two or three submits before your comment is submitted. Thanks for your efforts.

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.
