Police suspect plaint against Lenin false

Bangalore, Dec 30, DHNS:

Suspecting foul play, an attempted rape ''complaint'' filed by a female devotee of Nithyananda against Lenin Karuppan, the man who blew the whistle on the godman in March this year, was treated as a “petition” by the Bidadi police station on Thursday.

The police suspect that the “complaint” by the devotee, A Pushpa, alias Supriyananda, could be an “instrument” to malign Lenin who, in a sting operation, had exposed Nithyananda’s romp with a Tamil actress.

The police’s suspicion stems from the very contents of the complaint according to which Lenin allegedly threatened Supriyananda while she “was walking towards the bus stop on the Bangalore-Mysore highway along” with two other Nithyananda devotees “at about 8 am” on December 30.

When the police tried to verify Lenin’s location, they found that he was in Chennai and not present in Bangalore or anywhere near Nithyananda’s Bidadi ashram over the past seven days.

 The police officer who Supriyananda spoke to called up Lenin and satisfied himself that he was actually in Chennai. Sources close to Lenin in Chennai told Deccan Herald that he was aware of Supriyananda’s “petition” and that he was contemplating filing a defamation suit against the devotee.

This forced the police to treat the complaint as a petition in which Supriyananda, originally from Kadalur district in Tamil Nadu, alleged that Lenin tried to molest and rape her a “couple of days after Guru Poornima” some time in July 2009. According to Supriyananda’s statement, a copy of which is available with Deccan Herald, Lenin allegedly took photographs of her in the nude on his cell phone.

The next evening, Supriyananda’s statement says, Lenin “showed” her the “pictures on his cell phone and warned me not to disclose the previous day’s incidence”. She claimed she “could not file this complaint earlier” because she was “fear stricken”.

CD featuring Nithyananda and me morphed:

Bangalore, Dec 30, DHNS:

Tamil actress Ranjitha, who in March this year was shown to be in a sex romp with Nithyananda, on Thursday described in a complaint before a Ramanagara magistrate that the video featuring her and the godman was ''morphed''.

According to the complaint against Lenin Karuppan, whose secretly videographed romp between Nithyananda and Ranjitha was televised by news channels on March 2 this year, the “morphed video” was used to “blackmail and extort money” from her.

In this context, the complaint — a copy of which is with Deccan Herald — says that in “furtherance of a conspiracy” Lenin “created a video with a man resembling Shree Nithyananda Swami and a woman having intimate relationship with him”.

Police sources said Ranjitha’s complaint appeared to be a concerted effort to deny scientific evidence in the form of tests on the CD by the Hyderabad-based Forensics Science Laboratory. The FSL report had categorically concluded the CD was genuine.
Actor avoided police

Ranjitha’s complaint comes six months after she gave a statement to the Karnataka CID, which is investigating charges of rape and other sexual offences made against Nithyananda by Lenin.

 After the scandal involving Nithyananda and Ranjitha went public, she avoided the police and officers had to travel to Chennai to record her statement in which too she had denied being the woman featured in the CD.

When contacted, Lenin reacted saying Ranjitha’s complaint was false. “Everything in that complaint is false and I will take appropriate legal steps in the days to come,” Lenin said.
Molestation

The actress’ complaint recounts how Lenin would allegedly “pursue the complainant by unnecessarily coming and stationing himself near her and stare at her awkwardly”. It says that on February 13, 2010, Lenin, to her “shock and disbelief”, showed her poorly shot videos of his molestation of two Brahmacharinis on his laptop”.

Without mentioning a date, the complaint suggests that Lenin allegedly tried to molest and rape Ranjitha at the Bidadi ashram and subsequently tried to blackmail her by demanding Rs 2 crore.

நான் நிரபராதி என்பதை கோர்ட்டில் நிரூபிப்பேன்-நித்தியானந்தா

திருவண்ணாமலை: நான் நிரபராதி, எந்தத் தவறும் செய்யாதவன் என்பதை கோர்ட்டில் நிரூபிப்பேன் என்று திருவண்ணாமலையில் முகாமிட்டுள்ள குஜால் சாமியார் நித்தியானந்தா கூறியுள்ளார்.

திருவண்ணாமலைக்கு தனது 34வது பிறந்த நாளையொட்டி வந்துள்ளார் ரஞ்சிதாவுடன் அந்தரங்க கோலத்தில் இருந்து சிக்கி, தலைமறைவாகி, கைதாகி, தற்போது ஜாமீனில் வெளியே வந்துள்ள நித்தியானந்தா.

நேற்று காலை அண்ணாமலையார் கோவிலுக்கு அவர் போன போது பெரும் திரளான மக்கள் கூடி போராட்டத்தில் ஈடுபட்டதால் தப்பித்தோம், பிழைத்தோம் என்று பின்வாசல் வழியாக ஓடிப் போனார் நித்தியானந்தா.

இந்த நிலையில் நேற்று கிரிவலப்பாதையில் உள்ள நித்தியானந்தாவின் ஆசிரமத்தில் ஜீவன் முக்த சமுதாயம் செய்வோம் என்ற பெயரில் ஒரு உரை நிகழ்த்தினார் நித்தியானந்தா.

அப்போது அவர் பேசுகையில்,

33 ஆண்டுகளை முடித்து 34-வது ஆண்டில் காலெடுத்து வைத்துள்ளேன். கடந்த 10 மாதங்களுக்கு பிறகு முதல் முறையாக பொதுமேடையில் ஏறி தமிழில் வாய் திறந்திருக்கிறேன்.

தங்கள் துறையில் இருப்பவர்களை தாக்குவது அரசியல். ஆனால் எந்த தவறும், வம்பும் செய்யாத நம்மை அழிக்க நினைப்பது ராட்சச தன்மை.

120 இடங்களில் நமது வழிபாட்டு தலங்கள் உள்ளன. அதில் தமிழ்நாட்டில் மட்டும்தான் 17 இடங்களில் வழிபாட்டு தலங்களை கொளுத்தி இருக்கிறார்கள், 7 இடங்களில் சன்னியாசிகள் மீது கொலைவெறி தாக்குதல் நடத்தி இருக்கிறார்கள்.

எல்லோருக்கும் இழைக்கப்பட்ட அநீதியை தமிழக முதல்வருக்கு எங்கள் உணர்வை உருக்கி கடிதமாக எழுதி வைத்துள்ளேன். அதில் உங்கள் கண்ணீர், வேதனை எழுதப்பட்டுள்ளது.

அந்த கடிதத்தில் எனது ரத்தத்தால் கையெழுத்து போட்டு அனுப்ப இருக்கிறேன். ஒரு லட்சம் பக்தர்களும் ரத்த கையெழுத்து போட்டும், ரத்தத்தால் கைநாட்டு வைத்தும் அனுப்புகிறோம்.

கோடி கணக்கில் பணம் கேட்டு மிரட்டப்பட்டேன். மிரட்டிய நபர்கள் யார் என்பதை கோர்ட்டில் தெரிவிப்பேன். அவர்களின் மிரட்டலுக்கு பணியவில்லை. அதனால் பக்தர்கள் மிரட்டப்பட்டு அவர்களிடம் இருந்து மிகப்பெரிய அளவில் பணம் பறிக்கப்பட்டது. அதற்கு போதிய ஆதாரம் இல்லாததால் அமைதிகாத்தோம். இதற்கு மேலும் சொல்லப்படாமல் இருந்தால் அது சொல்லாமலேயே அழிந்துவிடும் என்பதால் உலகின் முன் பகிர்ந்து கொள்கிறேன் என்றார் நித்தியானந்தா.

பின்னர் செய்தியாளர்களின் கேள்விகளுக்குப் பதிலளித்தார் நித்தியானந்தா.

டி.வி.யில் வெளியான சி.டி. உண்மையா, அதில் இருப்பது நீங்கள்தானே என்று செய்தியாளர்கள் கேட்டதற்கு, எனக்கும், அதற்கும் எந்த சம்பந்தமும் இல்லை, அவை சித்தரிக்கப்பட்டவை. நீதி மன்றத்தில் நான் நிரபராதி என்று நிரூபிப்பேன் என்றார்.

ரஞ்சிதாவைப் பார்த்திருக்கிறீர்களா?

சரி, ரஞ்சிதாவை பார்த்திருக்கிறீர்களா? ரஞ்சிதாவை உங்களுக்கு எவ்வளவு நாளாக தெரியும், அவரை நீங்கள் நேரில் சந்தித்திருக்கிறீர்களா? என்று கேட்டதற்கு, ரஞ்சிதா எனது பக்தை. அவரை ஒரு வருடத்திற்கும் மேலாக தெரியும். அவர் ஆசிரமத்திற்கு வந்து சென்றுள்ளார் என்றார்.

உங்களது பெட்ரூமில் கேமரா வைத்தவருக்கும், உங்களுக்கும் என்ன உறவு, அவருடன் என்ன மாதிரியான மோதல் ஏற்பட்டது என்றுகேட்டபோது, அவர் எனது சீடராக இருந்தார். கருத்து வேறுபாடுக்கான காரணம் எதுவும் தெரியவில்லை என்றார் நித்தியானந்தா.

உங்களிடம் யார் பணம் கேட்டு மிரட்டியது என்று கேட்டபோது, சி.டி.யை வெளியிடாமல் இருக்க பணம் கேட்டார்கள். கெட்டபெயரை ஏற்படுத்தி, புகார் கொடுத்து சட்டரீதியாக மிரட்டுவோம் என்று கூறினார்கள் என்று தெரிவித்தார் நித்தியானந்தா.
English summary

Nithyananda seeks MK’s intervention

IRUVANNAMALAI: Controversial godman Nithyananda on his first public address (Satsang) on his 34th birthday celebration at his ashram premises here on Wednesday said he has written to Chief Minister M Karunanidhi about the attacks continuing on him and his devotees.He also expressed confidence that the chief minister would take steps to safeguard him and his devotees. The godman poured out for more than three-and-a-half hours, his frustration on the attacks on him by the media.“After the video, I have become the most viewed spiritual leader on Youtube,” a beaming Nithyananda said adding “it became more popular than US president Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal”.He wondered how it became so popular and had such a wide reach though it did not have any explicit content. On the video reportedly taken on December 23, 24 and 25, last year, and made public on March 2, this year, he claimed, “It is a fully morphed, misinterpreted and manipulated with no element of truth in it”.  “After all these happenings I am enthralled to see the gathering who have come here to listen to this 33-year-old youth”. However, he failed to explain why he maintained silence over the issue over for the last 10 months. He lamented that the life of a woman (actress Ranjitha) was tarnished.  “Some people claiming to represent the media demanded crores of rupees besides threatening me but when I did not bend to their demands and preferred fighting them spiritually they carried out with such false propaganda, he said.  While he promised to answer all questions raised by the devotees he later said that he would maintain silence.

Nityananda greeted with black flags, அண்ணாமலையார் கோவிலில் நித்யானந்தா ஏற்படுத்திய பரபரப்பு

திருவண்ணாமலை : பிறந்தநாளை முன்னிட்டு, அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர் கோவிலுக்கு வந்த சாமியார் நித்யானந்தாவை கண்டித்து, கோவில் முன் கறுப்புக் கொடி காட்டி ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் நடந்ததால், பரபரப்பு ஏற்பட்டது.

சாமியார் நித்யானந்தா, நடிகை ரஞ்சிதாவுடன் படுக்கையறையில் இருப்பது போன்ற, "சிடி' வெளியாகி, பெரும் சர்ச்சையை ஏற்படுத்தியது. அப்போது, திருவண்ணாமலை கிரிவலப்பாதையில் உள்ள இவரது தியான பீடம், பொதுமக்களால் தாக்கப்பட்டு, பின் மூடப்பட்டது. இதனால், அவரது சொந்த ஊரான திருவண்ணாமலைக்கு ஒன்பது மாதமாக வராமல் இருந்தார். 20 நாட்களுக்கு முன் தியான பீடம் திறக்கப்பட்டது.

நித்யானந்தாவின் 34வது பிறந்த நாளை ஒட்டி, திருவண்ணாமலை அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர் கோவில் மாட வீதியில், 108 பால் குடம் எடுத்து, வீதி உலா வந்து, தியான பீடத்தில் அவரது சொற்பொழிவு நடத்த ஏற்பாடு செய்யப்பட்டது. சாமியார் நித்யானந்தா வருகைக்கு எதிர்ப்பு தெரிவித்து, பல சங்கங்கள் சார்பில் திருவண்ணாமலையில் நேற்று முன்தினம் கண்டன போஸ்டர்கள் ஒட்டப்பட்டிருந்தன. நித்யானந்தாவின் வருகைக்கு பலத்த எதிர்ப்பு இருந்ததால், நித்யானந்தாவின் பிறந்தநாளை முன்னிட்டு பால் குடம் எடுக்கும் நிகழ்ச்சி ரத்து செய்யப்பட்டது. பகல் நேரத்தில் வந்தால் பாதுகாப்பு இருக்காது என அஞ்சி, அதிகாலையில் கோவிலுக்கு வந்து சுவாமி தரிசனம் செய்து திரும்ப திட்டமிட்டு, அதிகாலை 5 மணிக்கு அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர் கோவிலுக்கு சாமியார் நித்யானந்தா, சீடர்களுடன் வந்தார். அப்போது, சில சங்கத்தை சேர்ந்தவர்கள், கோவில் வடக்கு பக்கமுள்ள அம்மனி அம்மன் கோபுரத்தின் எதிரில், அதிகாலையில் கறுப்புக் கொடி காட்டி ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் நடத்தினர். இதை அறிந்த சாமியார் நித்யானந்தா, கிழக்கு பக்கமுள்ள ராஜகோபுரத்தின் வழியாக உள்ளே சென்றார். பின், தியான பீடத்தின் சார்பில் ஏற்பாடு செய்யப்பட்டிருந்த அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர், உண்ணாமுலையம்மன் அபிஷேக பூஜையில் பங்கேற்று வழிபட்டார்.

அதை தொடர்ந்து, கோவில் இரண்டாம் பிரகாரத்தில் உள்ள அருணகிரி யோகி மண்டபத்தில், நித்யானந்தா மற்றும் அவரது சீடர்கள் சிறப்பு பூஜை செய்தனர். அங்கு ஒரு மணி நேரம் பூஜை நடந்தது. அப்போது, வெளியூரை சேர்ந்த நித்யானந்தாவின் சீடர்கள், 1,000க்கும் மேற்பட்டோர் வழிபாட்டில் கலந்து கொண்டனர். நித்யானந்தாவின் சீடர்கள் நூற்றுக்கணக்கானோர் அவரை சுற்றி பாதுகாப்பில் ஈடுபட்டனர். இரண்டாவது பிரகாரத்தில் உள்ள திருக்கல்யாண மண்டப வாயில் படியில் நித்யானந்தா அமர்ந்து, சீடர்களுக்கு ஆசி வழங்கி, விபூதி பிரசாதம் கொடுத்தார். அவரது சீடர்கள், காலில் விழுந்து ஆசி பெற்றனர். நித்யானந்தா வெளியே வரும்போது, கறுப்புக் கொடி காட்ட, ராஜகோபுரத்தின் அருகே, கறுப்புக் கொடியுடன் சிலர் திரண்டதால், பீதியடைந்த நித்யானந்தா, தெற்கு கோபுரமான திருமஞ்சன கோபுரம் வழியே வெளியே சென்றார். விடாமல் பின்தொடர்ந்து சென்ற சில சங்கத்தினர், ரமணாசிரமம் அருகே, நித்யானந்தாவின் காரை வழிமறிக்க முயன்றனர். இதை சற்று தொலைவிலேயே பார்த்த நித்யானந்தா, காரை வேறு பக்கமாக திருப்பி கிரிவலப்பாதையில் உள்ள ஆசிரமத்திற்கு சென்றார். இதனால், திருவண்ணாமலை முழுவதும் பெரும் பரபரப்பு ஏற்பட்டது. கிரிவலப்பாதையில் உள்ள நித்யானந்தா பீடத்தில், மாலை 5 மணி அளவில் நித்யானந்தரின் சொற்பொழிவு நடந்தது.

பக்தர்களுக்கு அனுமதியில்லை

* நித்யானந்தாவுடன் வந்த அனைவரும் வெளியூரை சேர்ந்த பக்தர்கள். சொந்த ஊரான திருவண்ணாமலை பக்தர்கள் எவரும் கலந்து கொள்ளவில்லை.

* கோவிலுக்கு நித்யானந்தா வருவதையொட்டி, மூன்று டி.எஸ்.பி.,க்கள் உள்ளிட்ட நூற்றுக்கும் மேற்பட்ட போலீசார், கோவிலை சுற்றி பாதுகாப்பு பணியில் ஈடுபட்டனர்.

* கிரிவலப்பாதையில் உள்ள நித்யானந்தா பீடத்திற்கு அசம்பாவிதம் எதுவும் ஏற்படாதவாறு, பலத்த போலீஸ் பாதுகாப்பு போடப்பட்டிருந்தது.

* நித்யானந்தா கோவிலுக்கு வந்ததால், அதிகாலை 4 மணியிலிருந்து 7 மணி வரை பக்தர்களை கோவிலுக்குள் போலீசார் அனுமதிக்கவில்லை; வெளியூர் பக்தர்கள் மிகவும் பாதிக்கப்பட்டனர்.

* கோவிலில் இரண்டாம் பிரகாரத்தில் அருணகிரியோகி மண்டபத்தில் சிறப்பு பூஜை நடந்தது. "இது போன்று மற்ற பக்தர்களுக்கும் சிறப்பு பூஜை செய்ய அனுமதிப்பார்களா?' என்று, அங்கு வந்த பக்தர்கள் கேள்வி எழுப்பினர்.

* கோவிலினுள், "நித்யானந்தருக்கு ஜெ...' என்று கோஷம் எழுப்பியது, முகம் சுளிக்கச் செய்தது. அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர் கோவிலினுள் அண்ணாமலையாரை மட்டுமே வாழ்த்தி கோஷம் எழுப்பி வழிபடுவது ஆகம விதி வழக்கம்.

Nityananda greeted with black flags
Chennai, Dec 29, DHNS:

Controversial godman Swami Nithyananda was on Wednesday greeted with fierce black-flag protests at his home-turf, Tiruvannamalai, in Tamil Nadu.

Nithyananda, out on conditional bail and against whom the Karnataka Criminal Investigation Department (CID) had recently filed a massive 430-page charge-sheet in the Ramnagaram Judicial Magistrate court, was visiting his “Dhyana Peetam” ashram at Tirunvannamalai on the occasion of his birthday.

The tainted Swami faced a large group of volunteers and cadres of the two Communist parties and Left-wing organisations who waved black flags and shouted slogans, protesting his sexual misconduct, according to sources.

They urged the ancient Arunachaleshwarar Temple authorities not to allow its hallowed precincts “be defiled” by the presence of Swami Nithyananda.

Black Flag demo against Nithyananda’s visit to temple

[ Date : Dec 29th, 2010 ]
A Black Flag demonstration lead by CPI(M) workers, was held in the temple town of Tiruvannamalai in Vellore district of Tamil Nadu when self-styled Godman Nityananda, who was recently caught on video in a sleaze act, visited the Lord Arunachaleeswara temple today.
Reports received at the police headquarters here said the black flag demonstration, condemning his visit, was staged by workers of CPI(M), Tamil Nadu Farmers Association and the members of the All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA).

About 40 CPI(M) activists and a few AIDWA members assembled at the Northern side entrance of the temple and staged a black flag demonstration thinking that the disgraced Godman might enter the temple from there.
However, Nityananda entered the temple through the southern side entrance. After having a darshan of Lord Arunachaleeswarar and his consort, he left the temple by the same entrance.
When he was proceeding towards his ashram, he spotted a group of farmers association members staging a black flag demonstration near a school.
Sensing trouble, he directed the driver to take a different route and reached his sprawling ashram where a large number of his ‘devotees’ were present.

Agitation against Nithyananda arrival at Tiruvannamalai.

Nithyananda 34th Birthday was celebrated at his Ashramam at Tiruvannamalai on 29-12-2010. Indian women’s organization, Indian Youth Democratic Federation and Progressive writers Association agitated his arrival at Tiruvannamalai and raised slogan against him.
 
Saint Nityananda’s episode has already been unveiled by Sun Tv in its video broad cast on 2-3-2010.. As Nityananda, a saint’s pervert activities have been caught up in the camera, the time he was indulged in sexual activities with some actress.
 
Sun TV has broad castled thro’ a video clip on 2-3-2010 which opened the ugly face of the Nityananda with a film actress, and every half an hour this was broad castled by Sun TV throughout the world and being guilty Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam never have guts to come forward to stop the action of Sun TV.
 
Swami Nithyananda, arrested for rape and other criminal charges, got bail on Friday [11-6-2010]. The Karnataka High Court granted conditional bail to him and his close disciple Swami Bhaktananda. Justice Subhash B Adi while allowing the two bail petitions filed by Nithyananda has asked him to furnish a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two local sureties. Not just that. The court laid down several other conditions — that Nithyananda should not leave the place without the permission of jurisdictional court and mark his attendance once in every 15 days at the jurisdictional police station. “He should not indulge in any teachings or preaching except yoga. A spiritual head should be free from all attachments and denounce world. However, it is not for this court to dwell on that issue. The public is already sensitized by media in this regard. Affecting and hurting religious feelings is more serious than a stab injury. “Actress Ranjtha, the woman in the CD, has so far not been questioned as she is in the US. The video footage showing arrested self-styled godman Nithyananda Swami in a compromising position with a Tamil actress is “genuine”, a top CID official said Thursday. “The video footage is genuine. It is untampered and there is no indication of alteration in the video. As far as image comparison is concerned, that is still to be done,”
 
CID’s Deputy IGP Charan Reddy said. The CD was sent to Central Forensic Science Laboratory Hyderabad for analysis where it was found to be authentic, he said.
 
We are also reminding Nithyananda that as per Court verdict, he should not indulge in any preaching or teaching except Yoga. He must also repent for his past sinful activities and take forgiveness for his sins from God and then only he will attain peace of mind.

திருவண்ணாமலையில் விரட்டியடிப்பு : பயந்து ஓடிய நித்யானந்தா


பல சர்ச்சைகளில் சிக்கிய  பிறகு நித்யானந்தா முதன் முறையாக இன்று தனது பிறந்த ஊரான திருவண்ணாமலைக்கு வந்தார்.

2010 மார்ச் மாதம் நடிகை ரஞ்சிதாவுடன்  இருந்த சிடி வெளியாகி நித்தியானந்தாவுக்கு பல தரப்பில் இருந்தும் கண்டனங்கள் வந்தன. பெண்களுடன்  ஒப்பந்தம் போட்டு அனுபவித்ததும் வெளியானது.

நித்தியானந்தா மீது அவரது முன்னால் சீடர் லெனின் கருப்பன், சல்லாபத்தில் இருந்த நித்தியானந்தாவை நான் தான் ரகசியமாக வீடியோ எடுத்தேன் என பரபரப்பு கிளப்பினர்.

இவர் தந்த புகாரை வைத்து பெங்களுர் போலீஸார் வழக்கு பதிவு செய்து அவரை கைது செய்து 1 மாதம் சிறையில் வைத்திருந்தனர்.

தற்போது ஜாமினில் வெளியே வந்திருக்கும் நித்தியானந்தா அந்த விவகாரத்திற்கு பின் வெளியூர்களுக்கு செல்வதில்லை.

ஆஸ்ரமத்தில் இருந்த படி சத்சங்கம் நடத்தி வந்தார். டிசம்பர் 29ந்தேதி நித்தியானந்தாவின் ஜென்மா நட்சத்திரம். அந்த தேதியில் உலகின் எப்பகுதியில் இருந்தாலும் திருவண்ணாமலை வந்து அண்ணாமலையாரை தரிசித்து விடுவார்.

அதன்படி இந்த ஆண்டும் திருவண்ணாமலை வருவதற்கான ஏற்பாடுகளை செய்யப்பட்டது. கர்நாடகா நீதிமன்றம் தந்த உத்தரவையடுத்து இன்று திருவண்ணாமலை வந்து அண்ணாமலையாரை தரிசித்தார். விடியற்காலை 5 மணியளவில் கோவிலுக்குள் வந்த நித்தியானந்தா 7.50க்கு புஜைகளை முடித்துக்கொண்டு வெளியே சென்றார்.

நித்தியானந்தாவின் வருகைக்கு சி.பி.எம், ஜனநாயக வாலிபர் சங்கம், அனைத்திந்திய மாதர் சங்கம், தமுஎகச அமைப்பு போன்றவை எதிர்ப்பு தெரிவித்து கறுப்பு கொடி காட்டின. இதனால் பயந்து போய் ராஜகோபுரம் வழியாக கோயிலுக்குள் வந்தவர், பின் கோபுரம் வழியாக வெளியே சென்றார்.
 கிரிவலப்பாதையில் அமைந்துள்ள அவரின் ஆஸ்ரமத்திற்கு முக்கிய சிஸ்யர்களோடு காரில் புறப்பட்டார்.
செங்கம் சாலை வழியாக சென்றவரை அங்கு மறைந்திருந்த சி.பிஎம்., ஜனநாயக வாலிபர் சங்கம், தமுஎகசவினர் சண்முக பள்ளியருகே கறுப்பு கொடியோடு காத்திருந்தனர். அவர்களை கண்டதும் பயந்து போன நித்தியானந்தாவின் கார், அவரின் கார் பின்னால் வந்த சிஸ்யர்களின் கார்கள் சடன் பிரேக் போட்டு நின்றன.
பின்னால் ரிவர்ஸ் எடுத்து திரும்பவும் நகருக்குள் காரை செலுத்தி அவலூர் பேட்டை சாலை க்கு போக்கு காட்டி பின் வேலூர் சாலைக்கு சென்று காஞ்சி சாலை வழியாக அவரின் ஆஸ்ரமத்திற்குள் போய் சேர்ந்தார் நித்தியானந்தா.
பயந்து பின்வாங்கி போன காரை கண்டு அவரது சிஸ்யர்கள், பக்தர்களே அதிர்ந்து போயினர்.

பாலியல் புகாருக்கு உள்ளான நித்யானந்தா கோயிலுக்குள் வந்ததால் புனிதம் கெட்டுவிட்டது என்று ஆர்ப்பாட்டக்காரர்கள் கூறியுள்ளனர்.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
நித்தியானந்தாவின் ஜென்ம நட்சத்திர புஜை இன்று காலை 5.30 மணியளவில் திருவண்ணாமலை அண்ணாமலையார் சன்னதியில் நடைபெற்றது, அதன் பின் உண்ணாமலையம்மன் சந்நதி, நவகிரக சன்னதியில் நெய் விளக்கு என தொடர்ந்து வணங்கி வந்தவர். கோவில் பிரகாரத்தில் உள்ள அருணகிரி நாதர் சந்நதி முன் அமர்ந்துவிட்டார்.


20 நிமிடங்களுக்கு மேல் அவரின் தலைமை நிலைய சீடர்கள் நடத்திய சிறப்பு புஜையில் அமர்ந்து தியானம் செய்தவர் கடைசி நிமிடத்தில் கண் கலங்கி அழுதவர் அவரின் பின்னால் அமர்ந்திருந்த 1000த்திற்கும் அதிகமான சீடர்களுக்கு தெரியாமல் கண்ணீரை துடைத்துக்கொண்டார்.


அதன் பின் கோவிலின் ஒரு பகுதியில் அமர்ந்து அவரின் சிஷ்யர்களுக்கு விபுதி தந்து ஆசிர்வாதம் செய்தார். நீண்ட நேரம் கோவிலில் இருந்ததால் கடுப்பான காவல்துறை அவரை அங்கிருந்து வெளியே அனுப்பியது.

Protest against Nithyananda in tiruvanna malai -SUN TV NEWS UPDATE-1-2-3












திருவண்ணாமலை: தனது 34வது பிறந்த தினத்தையொட்டி திருவண்ணாமலை கோவிலுக்கும் தனது ஆசிரமத்துக்கும் வந்த 'குஜால்' சாமியார் நித்யானந்தாவுக்கு எதி்ர்ப்புத் தெரிவித்து போராட்டங்கள் நடத்தப்பட்டன.

இதனால் கோவிலில் இருந்து வெளியேறுவதிலும், ஆசிரமத்துக்கு செல்வதிலும் அவருக்கு பெரும் பிரச்சனை ஏற்பட்டது. போலீஸார் மற்றும் பக்தர்களின் பாதுகாப்புடன் அவர் பத்திரமாக ஆசிரமம் போய்ச் சேர்ந்தார்.

ஆண்டுதோறும் தனது பிறந்த நாள் விழாவை திருவண்ணாமலை கிரிவல பாதையில் உள்ள தனது ஆசிரமத்தில் நித்யானந்தா கொண்டாடுவது வழக்கம்.

மேலும் பிறந்த நாளன்று அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரர் கோவிலில் அவர் சிறப்பு பூஜைகள் செய்வதும் வழக்கம்.

இதற்காக இன்று காலை 4.30 மணிக்கு அவர் பெங்களூரிலிருந்து திருவண்ணாமலை வந்தார். அவருடன் சுமார் 1,000 சீடர்கள் கார், வேன், பஸ்களில் வந்தனர். அவரது வருகையையொட்டி கோவிலில் பலத்த போலீஸ் பாதுகாப்பு போடப்பட்டிருந்தது.

காலை 4.50 மணிக்கு அம்மனி அம்மன் கோபுரம் வழியாக திருவண்ணாமலை கோவிலுக்குள் செல்ல முயன்ற நித்யானந்தாவுக்கு எதிர்ப்புத் தெரிவித்து மார்க்சி்ஸ்ட் கம்யூனிஸ்ட் கட்சியின் ஜனநாயக வாலிபர் சங்கம், அனைத்திந்திய மாதர் சங்கம், தமிழ்நாடு முற்போக்கு எழுத்தாளர் சங்கம் அமைப்பினர் ஆர்ப்பாட்டம் நடத்தினர்.

இதையடுத்து அவர் ராஜகோபுரம் வழியாக கோவிலுக்குள் அழைத்துச் செல்லப்பட்டார். கோவிலில் அருணாச்சலேஸ்வரருக்கு நடந்த சிறப்பு அபிஷேக ஆராதனையில் பங்கேற்றார்.

பினனர் உண்ணாமலையம்மன் சன்னிதி, நவகிரக சன்னதிக்குச் சென்ற நித்யானந்தா கோவில் பிரகாரத்தில் உள்ள அருணகிரிநாதர் சன்னிதி முன் அவரது சீடர்கள் நடத்திய சிறப்பு பூஜையில் பங்கேற்றார்.

தொடர்ந்து அங்கு தியானத்தில் ஈடுபட்ட அவர் திடீரென கண் கலங்கினார்.

அதன் பின்னர் கோவிலில் உள்ள திருமண மண்டபத்தில் அமர்ந்து பக்தர்களுக்கு ஆசி வழங்கி விபூதி, குங்குமம் தந்தார். அவர் மிக நீண்ட நேரம் அங்கேயே அமரவே, அவரைப் பார்க்க பெரும் கூட்டம் கூடிவிட்டது. இதையடுத்து அவரை போலீசார் வெளியேறுமாறு கூறினர்.

இதையடுத்து காலை 7 மணிக்கு திருமஞ்சன கோபுரம் வழியாக கோவிலை விட்டு வெளியே வந்த நித்யானந்தா கிரிவல பாதையில் உள்ள தனது நித்யானந்தா தியானபீட ஆசிரமத்துக்கு கிளம்பினார்.

ஆனால், நித்தியானந்தாவின் வருகைக்கு எதிர்ப்புத் தெரிவித்து மார்க்சி்ஸ்ட் கம்யூனிஸ்ட் கட்சியின் ஜனநாயக வாலிபர் சங்கம், அனைத்திந்திய மாதர் சங்கம், தமிழ்நாடு முற்போக்கு எழுத்தாளர் சங்கம் அமைப்பினர் அங்கு கறுப்பு கொடிகளுடன் கூடி நின்று கோஷமிட்டனர்.

பிரச்சனையாகிவிடும் என்ற அச்சத்தால் மீண்டும் நித்தானந்தா கோவிலுக்குள் சென்று திருமஞ்சன கோபுரம் வழியாக வெளியே வந்தார்.

அங்கிருந்து காரில் தனது ஆசிரமத்துக்குப் புறப்பட்டார். அவரது காருக்குப் பின் சீடர்கள் கார், வேன்களில் வந்தனர்.

செங்கம் சாலை வழியாக சென்ற அவருக்கு மார்க்சி்ஸ்ட் கம்யூனிஸ்ட் கட்சியின் ஜனநாயக வாலிபர் சங்கம், அனைத்திந்திய மாதர் சங்கம், தமிழ்நாடு முற்போக்கு எழுத்தாளர் சங்கம் அமைப்பினர் மீண்டும் கறுப்பு கொடி காட்டி கோஷமிட்டனர்.

சாலையை அவர்கள் மறித்தபடி நின்றதால் நித்யானந்தாவின் கார் திருப்பப்பட்டு வேலூர், காஞ்சி சாலைகள் வழியாக ஒருவழியாக ஆசிரமத்தை அடைந்தது.

NITHYANANDA - Ex-members Sharings

Thanks to the author and others who are commenting their experiences and thoughts with the purpose of helping out others. Please do keep sharing. I have just lost my job, money, health and peace of mind with all these happenings. But many say they have lost their married life, relationships and whole lot of many more things. I'm feeling sorry for those and ofcourse for myself. I pray god to get our peace of mind back and make us stronger.

I have seen nithyananda  arrogance, pride, ego, need for excess of money for all the programs (I haven't had the chance to attend IA, LBE programs because of money and long vacation requirements) several times when I have been a participant and volunteer. The very first time I noticed his arrogance (if i can say so based on my perception) was when a participant in Oklahoma City program asked him 'How can he rate about the movie 'Lagaan' since he says he has renouced everything and without having access to money and not having chance to watch movies'. nithyananda continuosly tried to torture the participant with his replies for the entire session. (But I also noticed that he is being kind at the end of the session ?!) I haven't really liked much about putting malas with this pictures, bracelets and saying Nithyanandam to everyone, marketing to several people even when doing the programs. Once some once persisted me to do a paada pooja which was for $2000. I was pushed so strongly by a sincere inner circle devotee, but my mind for some reason didn't accept. Many a times, I have questioned why the programs has to be so expensive as nithyi's  himself says he has got his spiritual experiences without cost. I have even asked him directly once in a volunteer meeting, but was diverted with his answer somehow. But i didn't care for them a whole lot, as i gave more importance to make my spiritual understandings better than giving attention to those trivial things and rituals.

But my spiritual mind which has seen the peace through the meditation (LBP, ASP, NSP) still needs more convincing is basically asking for more evidence and proofs on these allegations. I'm trying to follow closely this blogspot to educate myself, I check this blog almost every day.

I'm reading and keeping on hearing that Dharmananda is trying to call ex devotees  to insist on the truths by giving them the proofs. I'm just wondering when would the common disciple(who has benefitted from the meditations and teachings but still not sure about what's going on, what's right/wrong?) get the evidences apart from the video with Rxxxxx  in youtube?  My sincere request would be keep asking ex devotees to keep sharing their experiences. Any close disciple and devotee would relate to the experiences other devotees sharing as we have all gone through the same setup and protocol. I'm still thankful for someone who gave half of the cost ($300) for one of the programs, since I went all the way to the program in US but couldn't pay the full money. I'm thankful for many devotees and many of nithyi's  teaching and mentally going through a lot of pain after all these bad news and messages coming out.

Please help me and other people in confusion to get more clarity! And I keep staying this to Dharmananda and others who are doing these brave acts, "please stay safe"!


I believe I'm still in illusion. From an NRI participant who has been very serious disciple (bot not an inner circle to know more truth) spending a lot of time, money and dedication for the mission and programs. I'm ready to share many of my bad/good experiences if required by keeping my anonymous nature.

Nithyananda, the Sex Swami, had an forgettable year

Two ‘gurus’ had the most forgettable year. ‘Swami’ Nithyananda spent nearly three months in jail after being arrested on charges of rape, unnatural sex, criminal intimidation, criminal conspiracy, cheating and the like. All this after his former driver Lenin Karuppan released videos of the ‘swami’ with a Tamil actress.
Nithyananda first avoided arrest by quickly going into hiding. Then, in an interview to a TV channel, he said he had been in a ‘trance’ when caught on camera and didn’t know what he was doing. Later, he said he was trying out experiments that society found ‘unusual’. Except that it was later found out that he had had several of his disciples sign non-disclosure agreements about these experiments. Hmmm…very unusual, indeed.
Of course, the ‘swami’ has clawed back, having obtained bail, then access to his big bank accounts, and even the right to preach again!

NITHY'S EPISODE (A SUMMARY OF EVENTS) PART-3

Click here to read Part 1
Click here to read Part 2


Getting back to you Nithy!! Let us ponder on some of the issues of the time. During your run and hide days, some of your close devotees suggested that you return and make yourself available to the police for any interrogation. You were told that there is no legal case against you as there was no complainant. The police were only investigating based on the F.I.R filed by Dharmananda which was a list of serious allegations. The chances of your arrest were slim. But you would not listen. Your advocate was promising you an anticipatory bail. Infact you were insisting that you would return only after getting an anticipatory bail.


You were scared of getting arrested. Infact when the doctor from L.A asked you, why are you scared of arrest? After all, Lord Krishna was born in jail and Gandhiji never had an issue going to jail for a cause.You timidly replied that at your age you could not risk an arrest and imprisonment. In reality you were scared that all your misdeeds and sleaze activities would stand exposed. You were scared that you would lose all what you created and earned by way of cheating gullible devotees.


During this time, many Ashramites and close devotees who had surrendered to you, wanted to get to the bottom of the matter. They were confused. On one side you were apologizing, while admitting that you had a relationship with the woman in the video (widely believed to be Ranjitha) and assuring that in future no such thing will happen. On the other side, you were giving press interviews from your hideout alleging that the video was partially morphed. These are school boy tactics Nithy and when trust is lacking people see through the lies.This is when Dharmananda started contacting directly and indirectly many true, sincere and important Ashramites and devotees. He had and still has startling evidence. Verifiable. It was verified by some of your ex-Ashramites, Acharyas and devotees by meeting the victims and their parents.


Your modus operandi of sexually exploiting both men and women was simple. Your care taker secretary would call for and send the honored man/woman to do seva to you. It was glorified that only the chosen few had such an oppurtunity. The seva meant massaging the legs and then the contact was pushed closer. You Nithy would confide (more like remind) that you were an Avatar of Shiva or Krishna and through close contact he/she would experience enlightenment. This was legally rape through cheating and deception. Could he/she resist you in such a situation? NO. Once the job was done you ensured that the Non Disclosure Agreements were signed when the girls were still in a state of shock and trauma. Several dozens were victimized. Why is it, Nithy, that in almost all cases we found that the parents of the girls/boys were not informed about these documents? Moreover, the girls were strictly told not to inform the parents, lest their path to enlightenment may also get affected. THIS WAS THE INCARNATION OF SATAN AT WORK. Your date of birth is a lie, your Parivrajaka is a lie, the gift of land at Bidadi is a lie, the age of the Banyan tree at Bidadi is a lie. You are a diabolical liar, a megalomaniac, power hungry and to a degree self deluded. You deserve to be locked up.


You could have avoided arrest if you were in Bangalore. As you were absconding, a warrant was issued and hence arrested. The Non Disclosure Agreements put you in a dock and had to spend 53 days in police and judicial custody. So sad. When you were arrested, Sachitananda was in the U.S. The few Ashramites still holding out at Bidadi wanted to run away. It was Ma Sachitananda a.k.a Ragini who persuaded the few Ashramites and Brahmacharies to stay on. Then you changed your Advocate and brought in new fellows from Mumbai along with a senior advocate of Bangalore. Finally you were released. Then your true colors started showing up along with your coterie and partners in crime viz. Sadananda, Bhaktananda, Sachitananda, Ma Sachitananda and Ma Sadananda. Not to forget Sri Manishananda, Pranananda, Gyanananda, Atma Prabhananda and the second circle consisting of Bhaktika, Priyananda, Achalananda, Shantananda, Prematma, Gnanatma, etc. Include the new comers desperately seeking attention like Madhavi, Arpit Singal (Turiananda) etc.


Nithy, initially you did a good job. In the second week of June you neutralized the press to the extant that too much negativity was not written. You hired a battery of lawyers, all famous and first rung advocates in Bangalore. Smart move. Their court presence made an an impact on the Judges. In short your money was now really talking. You weighed your chances. In our conservative society will any family lady complain? No. The only irritant was Sri Vimalananda. He was part of the F.I.R and he could talk. Also the L.A managers Sahaj, Sevaka and Jothir were found unreliable. Sachitananda was promptly dispatched to the U.S to take care of them and he took real good care. He got their resignation and also got them to sign a confidentiality agreement. These cowards are still shivering. He had a different solution for Sri Vimalananda. Everyone knows and it's in the news, how he was taken care of. The family most devoted to the temple did the job. Vamalananda was in contact with the family till July 2009. Now, suddenly Nithy made them to wake up. Wonder why after nearly 1.5 years. These one and half years Nithy was blackmailing him. Now Vimalananda who is part of the F.I.R was imminent to give a statement to the C.I.D. Nithy appears to have moved faster than poor Vimalananda. Nithy, now you were feeling safer. No complainant, no evidence, no witness.


All angles were very well covered. You got back to your old ways. Your arrogance was showing. There were statements made in the Ashram that any one who stood against Nithy would not be spared,not even the police. There was NO talk of right or wrong and if Nithy should be made accountable for his misdeeds. You were getting impatient to get back your devotee base. Your lawyers managed to get the court's permission to preach. There was no stopping you and your lies. But you din't realize that your sins were also catching up with you. You made your first STRATEGIC MISTAKE.


You delivered the FREEDOM TALK instead of a "Speech Of Repentance". On that day when we were all watching, you should have had the courage to admit your mistakes and apologize for betraying all your devotees, Acharyas and Ashramites. Shamelessly you spoke saying that even when you were in police and judicial custody one part of your system was always at peace and you could think of only compassion. Did you not feign heart pain and get admitted to the hospital to avoid lock up? The police will attest to the fact that you were crying and having blood in your motions and a doctor had to be called in. Had it not been for Bhaktananda giving you moral support, strength and company you would have been a broken man. Yet you were claiming Divinity and projecting yourself as an incarnation. The world has not seen such hypocrisy for long.


There were number of calls and e-mails from devotees who donated land, temples and cash to return back the gifts as promised by you. You were at your diplomatic best, sweet talking and your coterie playing it hard and refusing to return the gifts. The incident of the elderly 70 year old sick lady from Hyderabad is so vivid. She had come to get back the Temple she donated at Hyderabad. She was subjected to a security body check . Made to wait for hours. You spoke sweetly as a policy but your coterie consisting of Bhaktananda, Ma Sachitananda were rude, humiliating and abusing her family. How was you and your coterie's behavior at the time of her donating the temple? You were sucking up to her. AVATARA PURSHA, how do you explain this behavior? She is in her last days and your managers refuse to take her calls and now you have dragged her to court. Same is the case with the donor of 45 acres of land at Rajapalyam, Tamil Nadu. Same is the story of Maheshwara of L.A who stood guarantee of $2.5 million for the L.A temple. The doctor from L.A was snubbed by Sachitananda when he requested return of a huge cash donation (to divert to a genuine charitable organization).


Do we need to tell you that Paramahamsas don't cling to gold, property and wealth. Shame on you, are you going to take this wealth to your grave? From the day you were released on bail every Brahmachary and Ashramite is closely watched.They are afraid to speak on their mobiles. Such is the power and control of your inner circle with your blessings. It will not last long.


Simultaneously you announced Living Enlightenment and N.S.P programs and launched an advertising and press meet campaign. Through some cheap local political leaders you planted a news saying that Dharmananda was a Christian and that his given family name was Lenin. You also planted news of a great Christian conspiracy in collaboration with Lenin to defame you and Hindu Dharma in general. Essentially you wanted to gain the sympathy of the Hindutva forces to support you. This you did knowing very well that Lenin was a Hindu and was given the name Lenin by his father who was a staunch communist. Is it not a rule in your Ashram that every Brahmachary has to submit all his certificates including Date of Birth, Caste and academic degree. Dharmananda's certificates which indicates that he is a Hindu, personal effects and car were in your custody till about 20th of March. You sent them back to Dharma along with his car hoping that this gesture will appease him. Trying to take advantage of his Christian name you played the Hindutva card which seemed to work initially and has become a dud now. Dharmananda was the only bhramachary who joined ashram with his car and surrendered it to you along with all his other worldly possessions. You made him in charge of Galleria and also honored him by making him your personal chauffeur. After the expose you denigrated him and called him a small time driver. This goes to show the compassion and loving nature of an Avatara Purusha.


A team comprising of Sadanananda (Aiyya), Gyanananda and Pranananda were sent to Tamil Nadu to give a string of talks and press meets describing the whole expose as a lie and it was indicated by them that the whole video was morphed and digitally altered. In support of this, your team kept referring to the movie "AVATAR". The living enlightenment and N.S.P programs conducted by you were nothing but brainwashing sessions where emphasis on seva was made. Sadly, the only seva your inner circle goons made them do was to call up about 100 ex- devotees every day and ask them to come back to the cult. They got tired of doing this. Many were seen complaining in private. To attract ex-Brahmacharies and new recruits you introduced a new system of paying salaries to Brahmacharies. A number of old Brahmacharies were called up and given this incentive. These were acts of desperation. However, some attendance started improving largely from rural Tamil Nadu solely due to the efforts of the homeopathy doctor Mr. Chandran and a few others. We are aware that you rewarded him with a new MUV the Mahindra Bolero for his good work and to keep him in good humor.


Efforts were made like how political parties in India mobilize crowds. Free transport, free stay, free food, free holiday and darshan and blessings of the Master. The crowds generated were about 25 percent of the pre-expose crowds. Let's recall those good old days when you were at the height of arrogance and intoxication of wealth and money. You started demanding Rs 25,00,000 per day (that’s 25 lakhs/day!!) for your presence. Recall the kalpataru and N.S.P cancellations made at Vijayawada, Baroda, mysore and few other places just because the organizers failed to raise the said numbers. The threats of cancellations made for programs held at Hyderabad, Mysore and other centers for failing to reach the targeted numbers. Also recall the incident at Singapore when the Organisers could not collect your targeted amount, your Sadananda shamelessly demanded and collected the difference amount from the organizer. You have all the weaknesses of ordinary mortals. You are afflicted by Pride, Ego, Arrogance, Jealousy and above all greed and lust and yet claim to be a rare Avatar and Incarnation. I just feel sorry for the people still around you.


Let's now see the enactment of the new drama staged by you known as the Name Giving Ceremony. I could understand that, to keep up the morale of the brainwashed flock and reward their loyalty for sticking with you during your hiding days and later during your lock up days, you had this ceremony. Good thinking! but a few thinking people among the Bramacharies and Ashramites could see your devious mind at work. Some of the well known and truly respected names among your earlier devotees were Sri Nithya Advaitananda (your biographer) and Ma Nithya Manisha (your yoga mahacharya). Since they turned against you after having known the truth from Dharma, you divested them of their names. Sri Nithya Advaitananda was well known to most devotees in India and abroad, having written over 30 books for you including your biography. Ma Nithya Manisha needs no introduction having managed your yoga department and handled various workshops in your absence. She was an asset for your organization. In your new Name Giving Ceremony you picked up an incompetent, brainwashed, monkey faced idiot and gave him the name of Sri Advaitananda and next you picked up a rash, emotionally dysfunctional, power hungry and attention seeking lady from Hyderabad (Nominated and recommended by Ma Sachit/Ragini) and gave her the name of Ma Manisha. This you have done to create confusion in the minds of all devtees mostly ex-devotees and visitors familiar with the well known names when they correspond with them. It was a subtle way to let all devotees know that they are still with you. I wonder why you didn't name any one as Sri Nithya Dharmananda or Sri Nithya Kaivalya or Sri Nithya Maheshwara.


We could see that by the end of July and August your confidence level started going up. Your arrogance was surfacing. The police could not come up with any concrete complaint, witness or evidence. It was advantage Nithy because he knew that no Indian lady would risk her reputation in a rape case. By then your advocates were assuring you that your application to quash the F.I.R would be upheld in the High Court. Sri Sachitananda would regularly lead a team of Brahmacharinis and a few Brahmacharies dressed in your trademark costumes to the High Court to make a subtle impression on the Judge. For all your public talk, of excusing Dharmananda and feeling only compassion for him, we knew that it was only a matter of time before you would get back at him. You did precisely that. We (All 57 participants and Ashramites) were forced and induced to lodge a police complaint against Dharmananda for trespass etc. by Bhaktananda and others. Most of us didn't like doing this as we knew that Dharma did not trespass. It would be like accusing Bhaktananda or Sachitananda of trespass. After all Dharmananda was a resident of the Ashram so how could he be accused of trespass? Not happy with the complaint, as the police was not taking action, you prevailed upon your senior devotee Anjula Jackson and 4 others to file a private case on the same grounds against Dharmananda in the Ramnagar court. By this one vindictive act we realized that Nithy's time was drawing near. It soon happened, during mid September, the police announced and read out a few passages of a rape complaint received by them in the open court. There was shock and silence amongst the inner circle. Putting up a brave front, you orchestrated a melodrama in the Chit Sabha. We remember, it was late afternoon and you sent in Bhaktananda first. While announcing that a false complaint was lodged against the incarnation of Nithy, he promptly pulled out a pin, pierced his thumb and made out a declaration in blood of his unflinching support to Nithy till last breath. He prevailed upon every one in the hall to do the same or at least to write in red ink. We were about 150 participants in the hall and most of us wrote it out in red ink while some fools pierced their thumbs to write in blood. Just then Nithy entered the hall and ridiculed and half admonished Bhaktananda for his foolish and
emotional behavior and like a martyr declared that he would take care of himself saying that all great masters had to undergo such persecution. The whole drama was so well enacted,as if well rehearsed. I vividly recall, in 2009, when one of the participants asked Nithy in a lighter vein, had he not become a swamy what profession he would have chosen. In a flash he answered "an actor". It was acting par
excellence!!


For any independent, logical thinking mind it becomes clear that you have perpetuated a Cult and many were caught up in it, surrendering their mind, body and soul to you.You always demanded VITARKA (absolute and unquestionable surrender to the Master) from your devotees for spiritual progress. In 2005 you would talk about you being an avatar of Shiva or Krishna only to your ashramites and close devotees. Your inner circle diligently reinforced your Godhood to other ashramites and devotees. Slowly in 2006 you started dropping hints publicly about your Avataric Mission. Your inner circle (partners in crime) started spinning stories about sighting Lord Shiva at dusk after evening prayers and you acknowledged the same indicating that you were his incarnation. During 2006 and 07 the strength of Brahmacharies and Brahmacharinis started increasing thanks to your N.S.P and A.S.P programs. The course material for them was prepared and Guru Puja, Pada puja and Arati to the Master (you) became mandatory. In 2008, you started to claim that in one of your previous Avataric Incarnations, you were none other than Arunagiri Yogeshwara himself, who was considered an incarnation of Lord Shiva. Then you started the Inner Awakening programs and claimed to give Abhaya like how Lord Krishna gave Arjuna on the field of Kurukshetra.It became mandatory for all Ashramites, devotees and participants to do Guru Puja, Pada puja, Arati and publicly elevate you to the level of God himself. Your marble statues started making appearances and were distributed to all centers for daily puja and associated rituals. At one point you even instructed your ashramites to address you as ‘Bhagawan’ just like Ramana Maharishi! Nithy, surely and gradually you built
yourself to the level of a God Head in the public eye.


It was continues brainwash especially to all Ashramites and Brahmacharies. You were continuously advertising and roping in new devotees and expanding your so called mission. In fact you were only creating a cult empire of your own, where you would be sitting on golden thrones, carried around in palanquins and live a double life of indulgence and debauchery on one side and posing as an Incarnation to the devotees and participants on the other side. This is how cults work all over the world. Now, during the past few months you took this to a much higher level, because it's a matter of your survival. Now you are called as the The Rare Avataric Enlightened Master who happened on Earth.


Dharmananda was also very much a part of your cult totally brainwashed. It was a blessing from Almighty, that he could finally see you with better awareness and expose your fraud. In the process, he saved many families, marriages, lives and society at large. He deserves credit, hats off to him. Have you not tried to pay off Dharma? Induced him with an offer of setting up an Ashram for him. Have you not offered hefty sums to buy him off? Everything is on record. Most men would have been tempted by your offers, but this man, though living in adversity has stood up for upholding Dharma. Perhaps, the world still moves, because of sincere, honest and selfless men like him. I suppose it was his karmic duty to be born, only to bring down the fraud that Nithyananda is. This is the only reason that most of the senior ex-devotees, Acharyas and Ashramites are morally supporting and backing him. The police have also realized this and are doing their best and have done a great job so far.


We need to give the devil his due. You have inspired a large number of people in to the spiritual line, you are an excellent speaker, and very sharp when it comes to reading people (which you use very effectively to manipulate everyone). Some of the ex-devotees, are unable to break off from you because of the experiences they had in your presence. This in no way qualifies you to divinity.The fools don't understand this. It's possible that you have achieved certain powers, but you certainly have not progressed to a higher spiritual plane. There are some siddhis you may have acquired and employ them on people who are in your presence. To an extant your malas and bracelets also have similar efficacy. But what people fail to realize is that more than any powers it is purely your clever marketing and sales pitches about your healing and other miraculous powers that has created the faith for people. And its their own faith that has healed them (the classic placebo effect healing as you yourself claimed to Dharmananda and Sadananda once) or given them spiritual experiences. What most people don’t know or never hear is that for every 1 person you (supposedly) healed, there are 5 that did NOT get healed, but very conveniently, you will blame it on them and say its their karma to not be healed! You are simply misusing your siddhis, large knowledge base and oratory skills to deceive people, enrich yourself, amass wealth and indulge in lustful activities.


RAVANA was also a great siddhi indulging in similar things. You are much worse than him. You have abused dozens of women and men. Cheated and deceived devotees and took donations from them claiming to be a Avatara Pursha.


Now that the charge sheet is filed, your game plan is simple. Just delay the judicial process. At every level you are planning to seek an appeal in the higher court. Until the chargesheet was filed, you and your lawyers were blaming the CID for causing undue delays, you wanted to close the whole matter swiftly and return to your business. But now that there are actual victims and witnesses that have come forward, you want to cause endless delays in starting trial! You were all through challenging the F.I.R and now you are going to challenge again, the F.I.R, the process of police investigation and also the maintainability of the charge sheet at the High Court in January 2010. Fortunately for you, the Indian Penal laws give lot of scope to the accused to resort to such abuse of the legal system. You are going to fully exploit it. Can we expect any thing better from you?


Nithy, since you claim to be a Rare Avataric Incarnation and a Swamy of highest standing don't you think it's your duty to address the Moral issue rather than fight a protracted legal battle while trying to harass and intimidate any witnesses and victims, in your efforts to sabotage the case itself? How are you different from any common criminal who normally uses similar tactics? For once we all devotees (both ex-devotees and new devotees) request you to be man enough and go through the trial in the court and come clean of the charges at the earliest. If you are really innocent, prove it in court. Why are you (an Avatara Purusha, a great enlightened master) afraid to stand trial and prove your innocence in court? Let the truth come out in court, we are tired of your tricks, tactics and lies.


BE BLISSFUL!!!

CID on the lookout for Nithyananda’s disciples

The CID is on the lookout for two more disciples of Swami Nithyananda, the self-styled godman involved in a sex-tape scandal, following non-bailable warrants (NBW) on the two by a Ramanagaram court.
The disciples are identified as: Nithya Sadananda alias Dhanashekharan and Nithya Maa Scahidananda alias Ragini. Both had been issued NBWs and the CID has been asked to produce them before the chief judicial magistrate Ramanagaram.
The duo was arraigned in the case relating to Swami Nithyananda as co-accused. The NBW was issued on December 9 and the CID is required to produce them before the court before January 6.

Godman’s story in celluloid soon

December 20th, 2010
DC Correspondent

The Swami Nithyananda scandal will soon be made into a movie by BJP leader Mr Madan Patel.

“Many people have shared their nightmarish experiences with me, so I already have sufficient material. But I am still open to more people talking to me about the issue, so that the film gets more depth,” said Mr Patel.

Since the sex scandal became public, Mr Patel has been keenly following the issue. “Since then I have come across lot of people who have narrated to me how they have been cheated and fooled by Swami Nithyananda, so I decided to make a movie as that will expose him totally. The hunt is now on for a Nithyananda look-alike so that I can cast him in the lead role,” said Mr Patel. He feels that only a look-alike can bring the desired effect so he is frantically searching for someone who will fit the bill.

Titled Satyananda — The true story of Nithyananda, the film will probably be on floors after January 14. “This is an inauspicious month, so we will be starting only after Jan 14,” added Mr Patel.

He said that the episode had shaken the faith of many devotees. “We believe that Swamijis are next only to God, but this one episode has tainted the faith and belief of thousands of devotees. This one person has actually brought a bad name to the entire clan of Godmen,” said Mr Patel.

He added that he would not bend to any influence, pressure or threat from anyone to stop this movie. “I know there will be pressure on me to stop this movie, but I will not give in to pressure,” said Mr Patel, who will be directing the film himself.

Swami Nithyananda disciples face wrath of locals

Published: Friday, Dec 17, 2010, 11:46 IST
By Rakshita Adyanthaya | Place: Bangalore | Agency: DNA

Swami Nithyananda could be one of the most searched topics on Google, but the controversial godman and his disciples look averse to more publicity by the media. On Thursday, when he was leaving the Ramanagara sessions court, photojournalists captured his images. His disciples, however, caught up in a tiff with the media and locals.

The locals left the disciples severely beaten up. Nithyananda’s disciple accused that the attack was pre-planned.

Around 11 am on Thursday, after the hearing, Nithyananda with other disciples accused in the chargesheet, Nitya Bhaktananda and Nitya Sachidananda, were returning, when the media stopped them. Nithyananda’s advocate Srikanth said, “One of the disciples Jai Eshwar hurt his finger and screamed for help, when suddenly the mob spread rumours and chased Eshwar a distance and beat him up. So far we haven’t lodged any complaint and suspect this was pre-planned.”

The media alleged that the disciples were trying to block the cameras and were manhandling them.

The CID had chargesheeted Nithyananda for rape, unnatural sex, cheating, criminal intimidation and conspiracy on November 27. The 430-page-long chargesheet is before the CJM, Ramanagara.
Hearing on the case has been posted to January 6, 2011.

Initially, the case was adjourned to December 30 as the counsellors argued that the CID was yet to trace the two other accused Nitya Sadananda and Maa Sachidananda. Also certain cases are in Tamil and needed translation which would need some time.

‘Nithya called himself god of boons’

Naveen Ammembala
First Published : 18 Dec 2010

BANGALORE: Tainted Swami Nithyananda who reportedly claims to be Varadamurthy (the god of boons) compelled his devotees to wear a neck piece and bracelet with his photo and assured that it would protect them from all evils.

An officer of the Criminal Investigation department said the swami also asked his men to perform pada seva (worship his feet) and paduka yatra (carry his footwear on head).

A CID officer said Nithyananda himself needed protection as not only the CID but also the public who were angry with his alleged misdeeds, including exploitation of men and women in the name of enlightenment, for calling himself Ramakrsihna Paramahamsa, Avathara Purusha, etc.

One of the witnesses in the chargesheet filed against him in the Ramanagaram court said he made the mistake of believing him not just a Guru but as God.

Thousands of people who were his devotees and disciples, many of them highly educated and almost twice the swami's age, accepted him as god, says the statement in the chargesheet. "Like them, I also made the mistake of believing that he was God, that he was infallible and that he was the embodiment of truth and compassion," says the statement.

The chargesheet says Nithyananda exploited many of his disciples psychologically, mentally and physically by claiming to be god.

Nithyananda reportedly hinted his devotees to do his arathi, pada puja and suprabhatam in his praise. The arathi song at the temple was "Om Jai Nithyananda", a CID officer said. In the early morning hours, a "Nithyananda suprabhatam" song in Tamil, specially written for Nithyananda and describing him as God, was played at the temple and worship areas.

On Guru Poornima, senior disciples sat at his feet and performed puja of his feet, while brahmacharis did arathi.

The brahmacharis also carried his footwear on their head and walked from village to village explaining to villagers about him, said a CID police official.

In 2006, he declared a photo of his to be the Varadamurthy and declared that if anyone prayed to his picture, their prayers will be answered, says the chargesheet. He also declared himself an avatar purusha (God's incarnation as human being) and encouraged people to chant his mantra "Om hreem Nithyanandaya namaha" and promised his devotees he will protect them, said the officer.

Nithyananda: Sex and the single Swami

I am Krishna and you are my Gopika," sounds like an appalling pickup line, but if the Karnataka police are to be believed, it was frequently employed by 33-year-old Swami Nithyananda or Paramahamsa Nithyananda of the Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam at Bidadi, Karnataka, to seduce his female devotees.

Swami Nithyananda

The 430-page chargesheet filed by the Karnataka CID on November 27 against Nithyananda was prompted by the complaint of a young lady (whose name and identity has been withheld by the CID as part of the witness protection programme) accusing the swami of sexual abuse at the Bidadi Ashram, 37 km from Bangalore, and in other locations. Her complaint says Nithyananda insisted on "seeking moksha through sexual union" with several female devotees by claiming to be incarnations of various gods. The swami made them sign non-disclosure agreements (NDA) forbidding them to reveal sexual details. The signed NDA (in the possession of INDIA TODAY) states that "the volunteer understands that the programme may involve the learning and practice of ancient tantric secrets associated with male and female ecstasy, including the use of sexual energy for increased intimacy/spiritual connection, pleasure, harmony and freedom. Volunteer understands that these activities could be physically and mentally challenging and may involve nudity, access to visual images, graphic visual depictions and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity, close proximity and intimacy, verbal and written descriptions and audio sounds of a sexually oriented and erotic nature."

The agreement also absolves the ashram of any wrongdoing with an additional clause in the NDA: "By reading and signing this document, volunteer irrevocably acknowledges that he/she is voluntarily giving unconditional acceptance of such activities and discharges the leader and the foundation, and anyone else not specifically mentioned here but directly or indirectly involved in the organisation, management or conduct of any such programmes from any liability, direct or indirect, arising from such activities." A further sentence states that the "volunteer also affirms that he/she does not find sexual or adult-oriented material associated with the practice of any tantric rituals or any other adult material to be offensive or objectionable."

DIG Charan Reddy of the CID says no court would admit an agreement like this, "full of illegalities, but we are quite sure that by the time the victims signed it, they had already been exploited or brainwashed with not much of a chance to protest." The cops claim to have snagged video clips showing the godman in compromising positions with at least five women-a charge the ashram scoffs at. "It's difficult to put a number to his victims, but I would guess not less than 15," says Reddy. After the chargesheet was filed, summons on the case number 204/2010 in Ramanagaram court were issued to Nithyananda, his aides Sachitananda and Sadhananda aka Ayya, the man in charge of the ashram's Tamil Nadu operations. Summons have been also issued to Ma Sachidhanantha aka Ragini who runs the Hyderabad branch of the ashram.
The police have seized documents, videos and other incriminating objects from the Bidadi ashram to be produced as evidence in court. The Dhyanapeetam, however, insists that investigating officers have only taken hard drives pertaining to the ashram's publications department, which contain no incriminating evidence.

The sex sanyasi gained instant notoriety in March 2010 when Sun TV aired a tape of him allegedly cavorting with Tamil starlet Ranjitha. His ashram was set on fire by protesters and the godman, accompanied by Sachitananda and Bhaktananda, fled to Solan, Himachal Pradesh. They were arrested in April and granted bail after three months for lack of evidence proving that the sex video was authentic; even if it was, it showed consensual sex between adults. Dhyanapeetam ashramites allege that the present chargesheet is another attempt to discredit the swami after the sleaze tape charges failed to stick. "There is no technology in the world that can verify the recording as authentic, I challenge you," says Swami Sachitananda with a perceptible American accent.

The tape was reportedly leaked to the TV station by Nithyananda's disgruntled driver Dharmanandha or Lenin Karuppan who filed the complaint against the swami on March 4 with Commissioner of Police T. Rajendran in Chennai. The case was transferred to Bidadi police station on March 14 and on to the CID on March 18. The Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam is fighting back with counter cases and by allegedly releasing information that is meant to discredit opponents. In another police complaint filed by Lenin, Nithyananda is accused of sodomising a former devotee from the US, Vimalananda. Vimalananda has not filed a formal complaint but the CID's hope that he would depose at Nithyananda's trial was dashed when Vimalananda was charged for child molestation in the US last week. Lenin insists that the ashram conspired to have Vimalananda arrested, while the Dhyanapeetam mocks the CID for being short-sighted in trusting a paedophile. "Nithyananda's is an organised cult. They have filed 53 cases of conspiracy against me saying that I had released the video. But I didn't do it," says Lenin. Apart from rape, Nithyananda also faces charges of land grabbing, gold smuggling, violating the Wildlife Protection Act and foreign exchange regulations, all of which the ashram has refuted. "Our accounts are perfectly in order, and can be inspected by anyone," says Bhaktananda. "This is not the 1980s when gold smuggling was lucrative. Now, there is no price difference, so it wouldn't make business sense for anyone to smuggle gold. Why should we do it?"
Nithyananda
Nithyananda's Bidadi Ashram set a fire by protesters
The police say that a probe will be initiated into the wealth of Nithyananda and the ashram. The swami is alleged to have amassed Rs 140 crore in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. He loves to sit on a 24k gold-plated throne wearing heavy gold chains. The ostentation and scandals have turned many disciples against him. Once a Nithyananda acolyte, US-based businessman Maheshwara, disillusioned with the sex video, wants the swami to pay back the $2.5 million he spent on a land mortgage for the Nithyananda Foundation in the US. "Donations are not meant to be returned," says Bhaktananda. "In any case, Maheshwara has been sending feelers about wanting to come back. All are welcome here, even those who have fallen out." Nithyananda, born Rajasekaran to poor parents in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, made it big as the 'child swami' in less than eight years. His younger brother Gopi aka Nithyeshwar, 30, manages the swami's finances and of the ashrams abroad. He also runs an import-export business named Nithyananda Import Export, registered at the Bidadi address. Nithyananda's usp is speaking English well and dressing up like Swami Vivekananda while swearing he's an reincarnation.

Q: What is your reaction on the formal complaint against Nithyananda by a former female devotee who has accused him of rape?
A: The way I understand the law, an incident has to occur, then there is a complaint, then an FIR is filed, after which the investigation takes place, which culminates in a chargesheet, followed by court proceedings and then there is a trial and a verdict. In this case, however, everything starts with not a complaint but an FIR. But what we have here is a complaint cloaked in secrecy. A witness whose identity will not be revealed and who will "come to the court, if and when required".
Q: There is the question of protecting the woman in question because the cops think you might intimidate or influence her to turn hostile or threaten her into withdrawing her complaint.
Bhaktananda(Left) and Sachitananda
Bhaktananda(Left) and Sachitananda
A: In the original complaint there is no word called 'rape', it has come as a creative invention of the officer in question. On July 23, we were told that Section 376 and 420 had been dropped. The CID has stated that the woman came on August 16 and 17 to lodge her complaint. The CID had several opportunities to inform the court of this development, which they did not. When the judge said he would quash the proceedings, the DIG decided to make the complaint public. It looks like they had something to hide and that they came up with this complainant quite mysteriously.
Q: Would you explain why a spiritual ashram would ask its devotees to sign a non-disclosure form with objectionable clauses?
A. We work all over the world. We have centres in 35 countries. We work in the US, Singapore, Malaysia and many other countries. We have many people who claim Swamiji's content, speeches and videos as their own and sell it; we wanted to protect ourselves from that. Secondly in the USA there are places where depictions of Ganesha and Devi's are considered pornographic and we do the Abhishekam. So these NDAs were created mostly to protect ourselves in the West. It might have been worded incorrectly, in fact I'm sure I've signed it but I haven't even read it. Also asking anyone to sign that document is not illegal, it is a holistic document, and we are not even lawyers, having the document is not illegal, the document is not implement able. Indulging in the activities would be illegal, but we'd like to state once and for all that never have we ever indulged in any activity that can be considered illegal or immoral in this ashram. We are simple people who only want to meditate. This is such an onslaught on our lives, but hopefully this too will pass!

Godman's disciples attack journalists

Staff Reporter
Bangalore: Tainted godman Nithyananda on Thursday appeared before the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in Ramanagaram in connection with the alleged sex scandal cases against him. The charges were levelled against him by his former driver Lenin Karuppan. His disciples Nithya Sachchidananda and others also appeared before the court. Judge Pushpavathi heard the case. Later, around 20 disciples of the godman attacked mediapersons present within the court premises in an attempt to shield Nithyananada from them. They reportedly manhandled the media representatives. The people who had gathered at the court then thrashed the disciples, who escaped.
Sridhar, an activist, told The Hindu that Nithyananda had allegedly brought with him anti-social elements from Tamil Nadu to the court, disguised in saffron robes. He said this was not the first time that the tainted swami's disciples had behaved this way.
Recently in Bangalore, disciples barged into Press Club and attacked Lenin Karuppan, who was briefing mediapersons.

Sex swami's men scuffle with media

They were trying to stop cameramen from taking pictures of their guru

Frustrated over swami's Nithyananda's sex romp wide coverage, disciples of Swami Nithyananda scuffled with the media camera crew to stop them videotaping their guru, during his appearance at the court yesterday.


Shot to fame: Disciples of Swami Nithyananda tangled with a media
camera crew to stop them videotaping their guru outside the Ramnagar
session court, where the swami was presented yesterday.


The incident occurred at Ramnagar session court when Nithyananda along with his associates appeared before the Ramnagar sessions court.

Nithyananda has been summoned to appear before the sessions court after the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) filed a chargesheet against him, accusing him of having sex romps with his disciples, criminal intimidation and hurting religious sentiments recently.

When Nithyananda stepped after the court posted the case to the next hearing, a group of media persons tried to take his video for which his associates tried hard to stop to whisk him away.

During the melee, an associate, identified as Ishwar, scuffled with a camera crew leading to heated arguments followed by a scuffle. Sensing danger, Nithyananda hurried towards his SUV and sped away leaving his associates behind.

However, no complaint has been filed in this regard. Ramnagar Superintendent of police said, "Though there is a general security cover in the court premises, we have not received any information on this incident," he said adding that the police were not even informed about Nithyananda's visit to the court yesterday.

It may be recalled that a local schoolteacher had hurled a slipper at Nithyananda while he was brought to the session court by the CID, a few months ago.

Nithya calls himself Ramakrishna

BANGALORE: The tainted Swamiji Nithyananda calls himself an incarnation of Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and wears saree to dress up like a 'devi' (godess), says the chargesheet filed by the CID against the swami in court.

Nithyananda who has been accused in a sex scandal reportedly also had sex with selected female disciples.

According to a source in the CID, he performs the Nithyananda Jayanti (his birthday celebrations) at his Bidadi Ashram every year in December.

On December 31, he dresses up like 'devi' and gives 'devi darshan' to a restricted audience, said the source.

Nithyananda also claims to be Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa who wore saree to perform pooja.

Nithyananda reportedly asked his disciples to come to his quarters for "special blessings" in private and asked them to perform oral sex on him, the source said.

The swami reportedly claimed that he was an incarnation of god and that he wanted to do many great things for humanity. Sources said he claimed that being in samadhi let him detach his soul from his body and by being physically intimate with a female, he got back his soul in the body.

He also assured the disciple that she was helping him restore his soul back into his body and doing great service to mankind, a CID officer said.

He also said in his birthday celebrations that he was going to live a long life, 125 years in his physical body, sources said.

"He named many great past masters and claimed that all had relationship with women for the same reason," said the CID officer. "Nithyananda, who was using disciples for his lust in the name of Shiva, devi, etc. cannot be compared to Ramarishna Paramhansa. That great Guru Paramhansa had guided women to become enlightened in the right way, seeing and making them their Gods and Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa actually elevated his wife to the status of God."

The CID officer said this tainted swami "was a fraud who exploited his disciples in the name of spiritual enlightenment".

The swami, who called his female disciples as daasi, Paravathi or other names and called himself the master, Shiva, Dakshina Murthy, etc. was exploiting them, he said. During interrogation, he had admitted that he had sex with more than a dozen devotees, including men. He also told the officers that there were many devotees who stood in queue (women in the left and men in the right) and I used to hug them, said sources.
