Nithyananda ashram in child rights row

Santosh Kumar R B : Bangalore, Thu Sep 26 2013, 04:57 hrs


The Bidadi police in Ramanagara district are probing alleged violation of rights of 47 children at an ashram of controversial godman Nithyananda.
The Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (KCPCR) had lodged a complaint on September 19 after it was allegedly prevented from verifying the alleged violation.
The complaint also follows failed efforts by the KCPCR and the Women and Child Development Department to persuade the district authorities to check the plight of children at the ashram.
Gurneeth Tej, Director of the Women and Child Development Department, wrote to the Deputy Commissioner of Ramanagara district on July 2 to act against alleged illegal activities at the ashram and rescue the 47 children.
"The issue is very sensitive. You should take necessary action to rescue the children from the ashram on priority. Give proper directions to the Superintendent of Police," he wrote.
KCPCR chairman Umesh Aradhya said the commission received a complaint from an unknown person on July 21 that children at the Nithyananda Bidadi Ashram were not receiving proper education and were being subjected to mental harassment.
A team of the KCPCR headed by Shivaraje Gowda and Edward Thomas went to the ashram on July 29 to verify the allegations but were denied access.
"A woman disciple, who introduced herself as advocate Ragasudha, abused the KCPCR team," Aradhya said.
He said Ragasudha also rejected a KCPCR summons.
The KCPCR subsequently filed a written complaint with the Ramanagara Superintendent of Police Anupam Agarwal to take necessary action against the advocate for preventing the commission from discharge of its duty.
On Agarwal's orders the Bidadi police registered a case on September 19.
"Whenever we receive complaints of violation of child rights, we inspect such places. The Bidadi ashram should also allow our team to inspect the children. We would appreciate the ashram if there is no violation of child rights. But they are preventing us. We will do our duty with police protection soon," Aradhya said.

NITHYANANDA'S MASTER PLAN EXPOSED?!


[Watch Video Part 3 and the comment shared below, after the videos]

In this special program TV9 reveals Nithyananda's master plan to escape from facing the law - AVOID THE REAL MEDICAL TEST (FOR IMPOTENCE) ORDERED BY THE COURT in Karnataka, but at the same time claim innocence based on some documents submitted?!

Nithyananda has been claiming for a long time now that he is impotent, incapable of sex, etc, and therefore claiming innocence in the rape and sex abuse charges filed against him by the Karnataka CID in Nov 2010. He has even been producing documents, medical test reports, etc one after another, claiming that he is like a child of 6-10 years age! The latest step in this master plan is a document by a US doctor, claiming that Nithyananda is impotent and like a child.

But the question that people are asking is - IF NITHYANANDA IS REALLY IMPOTENT AND INNOCENT AS HE CLAIMS, THEN WHY IS HE AVOIDING THE TESTS ORDERED BY THE COURT FOR ALMOST LAST 3 YEARS? Why did he not cooperate with the CID when they had been summoning him for almost 2 years, forcing the Karnataka court to order him (1 year back) to subject himself to a Voice test and his medical test for impotence?

So what is his MASTER PLAN?! Is it to AVOID TRIAL AND ESCAPE THE LAW - by confusing the public and the judiciary with such documents, instead of direct methods to prove his innocence (i.e. subjecting himself to court approved tests by a court-appointed panel of experts)??

Part 1



Part 2


Part 3



We would like to share with the readers a very relevant and interesting comment regarding this same topic, received from an anonymous reader. 

Overheard an interesting discussion/analysis about Nithyananda in a coffee shop recently. One can guess that the coffee shop friends are closely following the Nithyananda case, including the latest document published – a US doctor’s views on  Nithya’s sexual impotency! The key points of their discussion are below:

Nithya could have walked in and taken established,  simple, direct test to prove his impotency, in the last two years. Why has he not done that? It could have avoided the court ordering the test, but that also he has been avoiding for the last one year! Is it because of the additional voice test that can confirm his audio record, where he confessed and justified his intimacy with the woman in the video?  

The original video has been authenticated by FSL, the foremost forensic lab in India. In addition, an internationally renowned and India's topmost forensic expert Mr. Chandrasekaran of Bangalore has authenticated the original video in print media and through TV channel. If Nithya has no sex urge and is like a 6-10 year old boy, then what was he doing with an adult female in the video?

In the publicized report the Dr claims that the low blood count would have been developed over a period of time. Now again the question is how long back can the results be extrapolated, since the complaint of abuse is several years before the blood test? Interestingly, the friends even jokingly remarked – “God only knows whose blood was tested and labeled as Nithyananda’s!”

They referred to the testimony of another male victim, which they had seen in a leading kannada channel alleging Nithya’s sexual abuse of him for several years in the name of spiritual liberation. 

They also talked about many herbal treatment that can correct or impair the sexual hormonal balance. Also the side effects of many allopathic drugs and even cigarates, can reduce the blood counts. Interestingly impotency itself is not uniform, as there are many persons who are sexually provoked with a few partners but sterile with most others (and that may include their wives too). And in an interesting twist, it seems over indulgence or excess masturbations can lead to lowering of sex hormone counts!!

They referred to media report revealing that Nithya had been using condoms and the victim herself has procured it for him! This clever move would certainly insulate him from any risk of STD, in case the victim has any!

They parted saying that Nithya has all the money to spend on all indirect and complex tests (rather than simple direct test) and also seek foreign experts to testify as if they are the ultimate!


These youngsters seem to have analyzed the whole issue threadbare out of academic interest, but it is indeed very educative and relevant.

SAGA OF GODMAN, SEX AND MONEY

The self-styled Godmen are the most famous and the most controversial. Their devotees treat them like God or incarnation on earth. These Godmen do everything to appear like a God, to further increase their aura. They portray that they are agents of God and professing gospel for rest of the humanity. At least, some people even believe them. As has happened many times before, their devotees are once again feeling cheated.
These so called Godmen have been accused of doing things which are not even humanly. In the latest case, Asaram Bapu has been accused of sexually exploiting a minor girl. It is still early to say, if the accusations are correct or not, but one thing is sure that he has tried his level best to delay the legal proceedings. First he accused the victim of being characterless and whole episode being a political conspiracy, then he proclaimed of being ill, then it was told that he is impotent, and at last, he tried to create pressure through his numerous followers.
All these Asaram’s efforts created a public perception that he was trying to subvert the legal process. Now even his bail application has been cancelled. The Supreme Court questioned why everybody seems to be his slave?
India is known to be a country of saints. There is no shortage of these saints and the people, who believe on those saints. The saints are supposed to be oasis of goodness in a world of evil, so to increase faith in God. It is not that all saints are fraud, still some decent saints are left (at least I hope so).
Asaram Bapu is not the first God-man to be accused of unholy acts. Here is list of others who have been accused in past list.

  •  Nithyananda has been entangled in sexual-related controversies. His sleazy video clips with a Tamil actress were telecasted in 2010. Later, he was accused of duping a NRI lady of millions.

  • Sant Swami Bhimanand was arrested with two air hostesses and accused of running a prostitution racket.

  • Swami Premananda of Premananda Ashram, Tiruchirapally in Tamil Nadu was sentenced to life imprisonment for rape and murder
  • .
  • Swami Amrit Chaitnya was arrested in 2008 for raping minor girls and cheating an NRI woman.

On one side, there is faith and devotion and on other, there are professional saints. Many saints speak fluent English and use management lingos. Their appointments are scheduled months in advance. Everything is done to create aura for people who are not use jargons and increase their followings.
Babas are very busy. The big and mighty want to meet him. Baba professes to not care too much about the money. According to him, money is just a myth. But he himself has not been able to get out of same myth. His consultation fees, popularly known as darshan fee, is thousands of rupees.
Babas have empire of their own. Thousands of people work for them. Roles are clearly defined, from attracting new followers (marketing and sales) and organizing satsangs (operations) to live TV telecast (PR) and taking care of followers’ queries (Human Recourse). They have full-time PR officers working on image building and publicity through print, TV, internet and merchandize. The babas are paid for speeches and appear in inaugurations, just Bollywood star.
Number of these self-professed Gods is steadily increasing. Why should not? The aura created around these babas is doing the trick. The followers, who have since childhood heard tales of Ram and Krishna, think they have found next incarnation of Vishnu.
In Bhagwat Geeta, Krishna said that, kalyug will come when human beings will start worship other human being. That is happening now.

The author is a Hindu by birth. He is a self-professed atheist and cynic.

நள்ளிரவு நிர்வாண பூஜை!

நள்ளிரவு நிர்வாண பூஜை!
'உண்மை அல்லாதவற்றை உண்மை என்று நம்பச்செய்து, மக்களை ஏமாற்றி போலி ஆசாமிகள் பலன் அடைவதற்கு காரணமாக உள்ள பில்லி சூன்யம், ஏவல் வேலைகள், குறி சொல்வது போன்றவை தடை செய்யப்படுகிறது’ - இப்படி ஒரு சட்டத்தை மகாராஷ்டிர மாநில அரசு நிறைவேற்றி இருக்கிறது.
 இந்த ஏமாற்று வேலைகளைத் தடைசெய்ய வேண்டும் என்று தன் வாழ்நாளின் பெரும்பகுதியை செலவிட்டுப் போராடிய சமூக சேவகர் நரேந்திர தபோல்கர், இதன் காரணமாகவே படுகொலை செய்யப்பட்டார். அதன் பிறகுதான் மகாராஷ்டிர அரசின் அறிவுக் கண் திறந்தது. நரேந்திர தபோல்கரின் ரத்தத்தில் நனைக்கப்பட்ட காகிதங்களில் அச்சாகி உள்ள இந்தச் சட்டம், பலவீனமான மனிதர்களின் மூட நம்பிக்கைகளுக்கும் அவர்களை சுரண்டிப் பிழைக்கும் போலி ஆசாமிகளுக்கும் அடிக்கப்பட்ட கடைசி ஆணியாக இருக்கும் என்பதில் சந்தேகம் இல்லை.
பகுத்தறிவின் தாய் பூமியான தமிழகத்திலும் வட மாநிலங்களுக்கு கொஞ்சமும் குறைவு இல்லாமல், மூட நம்பிக்கைகள், அதையட்டிய ஏமாற்று வேலைகள் சூடுபிடித்துள்ளன. அன்றாடம் செய்திகளில் வெளியாகும் சாமியார்களின் சல்லாபச் செய்திகளும் நரபலி சம்பவங்களும் நிர்வாண பூஜைகளும் இதற்கு சாட்சி.  
மக்கள் இந்த அளவுக்கு மதிமயங்கிப்போகக் காரணம் என்ன? பெரியார் திராவிடர் கழகத்தைச் சேர்ந்த வழக்கறிஞர் குமாரதேவனிடம் பேசினோம்.  
''பில்லி சூன்யம், ஏவல், பெண்களை வசியம் செய்வது என்று சொல்லப்படும் விஷயங்களில் துளியளவும் உண்மை இல்லை. ஆனால், திரைப்படங்கள், ஊடகங்கள் போன்றவை இவை உண்மை என்பதுபோல் ஒரு மாயத் தோற்றத்தை சமீப காலங்களில் அதிகமாக உண்டாக்குகின்றன. அதன் காரணமாக படித்தவர்கள், பணக்காரர்கள், தொழிலதிபர்கள் என்று மேல்தட்டு மக்களும் தொடர்ந்து ஏமாறுகின்றனர். பில்லி சூன்யம், ஏவல் வேலைகளைச் செய்யும் நபர்களில் குற்றப் பின்னணி கொண்ட கிரிமினல்கள்தான் 90 சதவிகிதம் பேர் இருப்பார்கள். அல்லது, வீட்டை விட்டு துரத்தப்பட்டவர்கள், உழைத்து வாழப்பிடிக்காமல் வீட்டை விட்டு வெளியேறியவர்களாக இருப்பார்கள்.
அடிப்படையாக அவர்கள் சில விதிகளைப் பின்பற்றுகிறார்கள். பிளாக் மேஜிக் எனப்படும் கண்கட்டு வித்தைகளில் சிலவற்றை கற்றுக்கொள்கிறார்கள். எண்ணெய் சட்டியில் கையை விடுவது, வாயில் இருந்து லிங்கம் எடுப்பது, கைகளில் விபூதி வரவழைப்பது என்று சில வித்தைகளைப் பயன்படுத்தி தாங்கள் கடவுளின் சக்திபெற்றவர்கள் என்ற எண்ணத்தை அப்பாவி மக்களிடம் விதைக்கின்றனர். அதை நம்பி பிரமித்துப்போகும் மக்கள், அந்தச் சாமியாரிடம் தங்களை முழுமையாக ஒப்படைத்துவிடுகிறார்கள். பிறகு, அந்தச் சாமியார் சொல்வதுதான் அவர்களுக்கு வேதவாக்கு. அப்படி ஆன பின்புதான், அவர்களை நம்பி சொத்துக்களை ஒப்படைப்பது, பெற்ற குழந்தையை நரபலி கொடுத்து புதையலைத் தேடுவது, குழந்தை பிறக்காத பெண்கள் ராத்திரி பூஜைக்குப்போவது என்று பல பைத்தியக்காரத்தனங்களை செய்கின்றனர்.
இந்தச் சாமியார்கள் செய்யும் கண்கட்டு வித்தைகளை, உரிய பயிற்சி இருந்தால் யார் வேண்டுமானாலும் செய்யலாம். அதை பகுத்தறிவு இயக்கங்கள் அறிவியல் பூர்வமாக பலமுறை நிரூபித்துள்ளன. ஒரு தேர்ந்த மேஜிக் நிபுணன், இந்த சாமியார்கள் செய்வதைக் காட்டிலும் பல அற்புதங்களைச் செய்கிறான். அவர்கள் அதை மேஜிக்காகவே செய்கிறார்கள். சாமியார்கள் தங்களின் சக்தியால் செய்கிறோம் என்று ஏமாற்றுகிறார்கள்.
உன்னைக் கொலை செய்துவிடுவேன், உன்னைத் தாக்கிவிடுவேன் என்று ஒரு மனிதன் இன்னொரு மனிதனைப் பார்த்துச் சொன்னாலே அது சட்டப்படி குற்றமாகிறது. அதுபோலவே, 'பெண்களை வசியம் செய்ய வேண்டுமா? குடும்பத்தைப் பிரிக்க வேண்டுமா? எதிரிகளுக்கு சூன்யம் வைக்க வேண்டுமா?’ என்று பத்திரிகைகளில் விளம்பரம் செய்வதையும் குற்றமாகப் பார்க்க வேண்டும். அவற்றுக்குத் தடை விதிக்க வேண்டும்'' என்று கொந்தளித்தார்.
பல தலைமுறைகளாக குறி சொல்வதையே தொழிலாகக் கொண்ட குடும்பத்தைச் சேர்ந்த செல்வராஜிடம் பேசினோம். ''எங்கள் பரம்பரைத் தொழிலே குறி சொல்வதுதான். அதனால், மற்றவர்களைவிட இது எத்தனை பெரிய ஏமாற்று வேலை என்பது எனக்கு நன்றாகத் தெரியும். எந்த ஒரு செயலையும் தொடர்ந்து ஒரே சீராக செய்யும்போது, அதில் சில நுணுக்கங்கள் நமக்குப் புலப்படும். சில பயிற்சிகள் கைவரப் பெறும். அதுதான் இந்தத் தொழிலின் முதலீடு. இந்தத் தொழிலில் ஈடுபடுபவர்கள் முதலில் தங்களுக்கு என்று ஒரு பாணியை உருவாக்கிக்கொள்வார்கள். எங்கள் சமூகத்தினர் பரம்பரை பரம்பரையாக கம்பளியை உடலில் போர்த்திக்கொண்டு குறி சொல்லி வருகிறார்கள். இப்போது புதிதாக சிலர், சாட்டையால் அடித்துக்கொண்டு குறி சொல்வது, குடித்துவிட்டு குறி சொல்வது, தலையில் மிதித்து குறி சொல்வது என்று பல யுக்திகளை பயன்படுத்துகின்றனர். மற்றவர்களில் இருந்து தங்களை வித்தியாசப்படுத்திக்கொள்ளவே இந்த வழிமுறை. கூடவே ஆளை பயமுறுத்துகிற சாமி படங்கள், சிலைகள், பம்பை, உடுக்கையையும் பயன்படுத்துவார்கள். இதெல்லாம் உளவியல்ரீதியாக எதிராளியின் உறுதியைக் குலைத்துவிடும் தன்மை படைத்தவை.
காலம் காலமாக இதே வேலையைச் செய்வதால், சாமியாடிகளுக்கும் குறி சொல்பவர்களுக்கும் உளவியல் ரீதியாக சில கணிப்புத் திறமைகள் இருக்கும். குறி கேட்க வருபவர்கள் உட்கார்ந்திருக்கும் நிலை, அவர்களின் முகத்தில் தெரியும் வாட்டம் போன்றவற்றை வைத்து சில அடிப்படையான விஷயங்களைச் சரியாகச் சொல்வார்கள். உதாரணத்துக்கு, குறி கேட்க வந்திருப்பவரின் உடன் பிறந்தவர்கள், பெற்றோர் பெயர், மனதில் நினைக்கும் பூ போன்றவற்றை சரியாக கணித்துச் சொல்வார்கள். அப்படி சரியாக சொல்லும்போது, குறி கேட்க வந்தவரின் கண்களில் தெரியும் மாற்றங்களை, ஆச்சர்யங்களை சரியாக கணித்து பிடித்துக்கொள்வார்கள். அதன் பிறகு குறி சொல்லிகள் எதையும் கேட்கவே தேவை இல்லை. குறி கேட்க வந்தவர்களே அனைத்தையும் வரிசையாக ஒப்பித்துவிடுவார்கள். இப்படி சில அடிப்படை விஷயங்களை சரியாக கணிப்பது என்பது எல்லோருக்கும் சாத்தியம்தான்.
மேலும், இவர்களுக்கு பிளாக¢ மேஜிக் எனப்படும் கண்கட்டு வித்தைகள் தெரியும். உதாரணமாக ஈரச் சாணிக்குள் வெள்ளைப் பாஸ்பரஸை வைத்து, 'இதை ஈரம் காய்வதற்குள் உன் எதிராளியின் வீட்டில் எறிந்துவிடு’ என்பார்கள். அப்படிச் செய்யும்போது, அந்தச் சாணி காய்ந்தவுடன் வெள்ளைப் பாஸ்பரஸ் தீப்பிடித்து எரியும். அதனால், எதிராளிகளுக்கு சேதமும் பீதியும் உண்டாகும்.
ஆண், பெண் வசியம் என்று கேட்டு வருபவர்களிடம், சில போதை வஸ்துகளை பிரசாதத்திலோ தீர்த்தத்திலோ கலந்து கொடுப்பார்கள். இதற்காக சில மூலிகைகளையும் பயன்படுத்துவார்கள். போதை வஸ்து தன்னுடைய வேலையை காட்டும்போது, சில நாட்களுக்கு மருந்து கொடுத்தவர் சொல்வதைக் கேட்பார். அல்லது பேயறைந்தவர் போல் திரிவார். அந்த சமயத்தைப் பயன்படுத்தி நாம் சில காரியங்களை சாதித்துக்கொள்ளலாம். ஆனால், நிரந்தரமாக யாரையும் மயக்கத்தில் வைத்திருக்க முடியாது. இதுதான் ஆண், பெண் வசியம். மாய மந்திர வசியம் மூலம் ஒரு பெண்ணை ஒரேயடியாக வசியம் செய்துவிட முடியும் என்றால், ஐஸ்வர்யா ராய் உள்ளிட்ட அழகான பெண்களை இந்நேரம் எத்தனை பேர் வசியம் செய்திருப்பார்கள்!  
அதுபோல் குறி சொல்லிகள், 'உங்களின் பிரச்னை இன்னும் மூன்று அல்லது ஆறு மாதங்களில் சரியாகிவிடும்’ என்று உறுதியாகச் சொல்வார். அதற்கு பல பரிகாரங்களைச் சொல்லி லட்சக்கணக்கில் பணம் வாங்கிக்கொள்வார்கள். பொதுவாக எந்தப் பிரச்னையானாலும் அது, சில  மாதங்களில் இயல்பாகவே சரியாகிவிடும். அப்படி ஆகும்போது சாமியார் சொன்னதால்தான் சரியானது என்று நம்பிக்கை அவர்கள் மனதில் வலுக்கிறது. அதற்காக இவர்கள் சொல்வதை எல்லாம் அவர்கள் செய்கிறார்கள். பணத்தைக் கொட்டுகிறார்கள்.  தனித்தன்மை இல்லாத மனிதர்களுக்கு வாழ்நாள் முழுவதும் அந்த நம்பிக்கை தேவைப்படுகிறது. அவர்களை ஒரு சிலர் தவறாகப் பயன்படுத்திக்கொண்டு பணத்தைப் பறிப்பது, தங்களின் உடல் இச்சையை தீர்த்துக்கொள்வது, நரபலி கொடுப்பது போன்ற வேலைகளைச் செய்கின்றனர்'' என்றார்.
மகாராஷ்டிர அரசின் சட்டம் பற்றியும், குறி சொல்லிகள் மீதான புகார்கள் பற்றியும் பி.ஜே.பி-யின் மூத்த தலைவர் இல.கணேசனிடம் கேட்டோம். ''உலகளாவிய அளவில் இதுபோன்ற நம்பிக்கைகள் எல்லா மதங்களிலும் எல்லா இனக் குழுக்களிடமும் உள்ளன. ஒருவரின் எதிர்காலம், அவருக்குள்ள பிரச்னைகள் மற்றும் அதற்கான தீர்வுகளை கைரேகையை பார்த்துச் சொல்வது, முகத்தைப் பார்த்துச் சொல்வது நமது நாட்டிலும் தொன்று தொட்டு இருக்கிறது. ஆனால் எல்லா துறைகளிலும் போலிகளும் கலப்படங்களும் நுழைந்துவிட்டதைப்போல், இந்தத் துறையிலும் போலிகள் வந்து விட்டனர். எல்லா துறையும் தரம் தாழ்ந்துவிட்டதைப்போல், இந்தத் துறையும் தரம் தாழ்ந்துவிட்டது. போலியைக் கண்டறிந்து அவற்றை மட்டும் களையெடுக்க வேண்டியதுதான். அந்த வேலையை சீர்திருத்தவாதிகளும் உண்மையான ஆன்மிகவாதிகளும் செய்ய வேண்டும். மாறாக சட்டம் எல்லாம் போட்டு இதுபோன்ற நம்பிக்கைகளைத் தடுத்துவிட முடியாது'' என்றார்.
உண்மையான ஆன்மிக நம்பிக்கைக்கும் மூட நம்பிக்கைகளுக்கும்¢ நிறைய வேறுபாடுகள் உள்ளன. ஆன்மிகம் என்ற பெயரில், மனித மனத்தின் பலவீனங்களைக் குறிவைத்து தாக்கி பலனடையும் போலி சாமியார்களுக்கு தமிழகத்தில் எப்போது தடை விதிக்கப்படும்?
ஜோ.ஸ்டாலின்

Nithyananda Video - BCCC to issue revised order against Star Vijay




Fresh order soon against TV channel

The Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) has withdrawn its order asking a channel to apologise to actress Ranjitha Menon and conveyed to the channel that no apology scroll needs to be run until a revised order is passed.

The BCCC had earlier issued the order following a complaint from the actress that the channel had telecast a programme that had shown her in bad light.

The BCCC, a self-regulatory body of television channels, after receiving a submission from STAR Vijay channel has told it that “our earlier order stands withdrawn and you need not air the said apology scroll from 12 noon on September 9.”

The body, headed by former Delhi High Court Chief Justice A P Shah, said fresh directions for airing the apology scroll would be communicated to them soon “through the revised order.”

The actress had complained against the broadcast of certain video clips in a programme titled ‘Nadanthadu Enna–Kutramum Pinnaniyum’ (what happened--crime and background) telecast on March 21 last year by STAR Vijay.

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry had forwarded the complaint to the BCCC. — PTI

No dearth of godmen: Asaram Bapu after his arrest for sexual assault on a minor

How Devotees Are Brainwashed Into Fandom

  • Systematically create a sense of powerlessness in the person
  • Control the physical and social environment; control the devotee’s time
  • Keep the person unaware of what’s going on & how he is being changed step by step
  • Manipulate rewards, punishments and experiences to check the expression of the person’s former identity
  • Manipulate rewards, punishments and experiences to promote conformity
  • Set a closed system of logic, a hierarchy permitting no feedback, with top-down orders
***
If you for some reason decide to surrender in devotion to Swami Nithyananda, the following anecdote is likely to be part of your initial lessons. It’s one he keeps recounting to the multitudes at his ashram in Bidadi, near Bangalore, curious and eager to have his wisdom rub off on them: A professor happens to visit a Zen master. While the master quietly serves tea, the professor blabbers on about Zen. The master keeps filling the visitor’s cup till it started overflowing. The professor blurts out, “It’s full! No more will go in!” “This is you,” the master says. “How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
Become empty first. This is one of Nit­hya­nanda’s first commandments. It’s also probably one of the most essential. As devotees drop their critical defences, he fills them with his worldview, his aura to transform them into loyal followers. This model of indoctrination is not unique to Nithyananda. Across India, for that matter elsewhere, one of the first sermons that godmen will drill into devotees is, outsource the thinking to the guru while devotees free their minds in pursuit of the blissful feeling of spirituality. As Bhargavi Hemmige, a research scholar at Mysore University who spent some time at Nithyananda’s ashram out of academic curiosity, recollects, “He kept telling us not to use our minds. It’s a monkey that misleads, he told us.”

Others who have gone through the cycle of recrimination and defence include Satya Sai Baba, the late Osho, and Baba Ramdev
What else but complete control over the mind can explain the ineluctable hold India’s godmen have over their devotees? So much so, grievous accusations of colossal financial transgressions, rape and child abuse, even murder do not seem to diminish their faith. On the contrary, in the case of Asaram Bapu, a godman mired in controversy and recently arrested by Rajasthan police on charges of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl, they seem to shore up their belief in defiance.


“For devotees, it isn’t a matter of right or wrong. It’s about protecting the one who protects them. That’s all that matters to them.”Indira Sharma, President, Indian Psychiatric Society


As Asaram evaded imminent arrest, throngs of his followers gathered at Jantar Mantar in Delhi to push for his release and sounded the battle-cry from a makeshift stage. “Our fight will go on until the conspiracists give up trying to tarnish Bapu’s image. We should send a clear message by amassing at the next satsang in such large numbers that there should be no place left for us to sit,” said one, to loud roars of approval from the crowd. “Our victory is certain. Only then will we leave,” exclaimed another devotee. “I have not eaten a thing in 48 hours, but gurudev is giving me the strength to go on and I can for another five days.” At Jantar Mantar, they spend most of their time chanting ‘Hari Om’; in other places, Asaram’s devotees have blocked roads and railway tracks and even assaulted media personnel. Godmen and controversies have been bedfellows for long in India but this poses no threat to their cult appeal (see box for some of our flourishing gurus and the controversies associated with them). At the Jantar Mantar demonstration, an Asaram devotee from Himachal Pradesh began to tell Outlook of his indebtedness. “Even if Lord Shiva himself appears and tells me not to believe in Bapu, I will tell him I cannot give up. I know what I have gained from him. He has saved me from committing suicide. So, even if he kills off the entire world, Bapu will still be god for me. It’s another matter that he will not do something like this,” he says, before he’s whisked away by other followers angry with the media. Asked what was so special about Asaram, Akanksha Bhatnagar, a 20-year-old mca student from Delhi, gushes with a twinkle in her eyes, “You will realise when you come to one of his sermons. I have no words to express.” For his devotees, Bapu is akin a body of water—you can thrash him as much as you want, there will be a few splashes, but nothing that will affect him. “I am sure he will come out shining even brighter after this episode,” Bhatnagar adds. Ask devotees of other godmen, like Sai Baba, Ramdev, Jayendra Saraswati or Nirankari Baba, and you are likely to get the same mix of uncritical reverence that borders on irrationality.

“Swami Nityananda kept asking devotees not to use their minds. He kept telling us that. He said the mind is a monkey that misleads.”Bhargavi Hemmige, Researcher, Mysore University


How is it that godmen manage to win such unquestioning submission? Interviews with devotees, some of whom have fallen out with their gurus, detail an elaborate spiel that gurus have in place to control a devotee’s free thinking capabilities. The initial assault on independent thinking often comes with sleep deprivation: devotees are often allowed no more than four hours of sleep. What is thought of as a part of the frugal character of ashram life actually undercuts a devotee’s critical thinking. This is combined with a heavy work schedule and unreasonable deadlines that overwhelm a person’s routine. “This just doesn’t leave any time for you to sit and reflect. And the moment you do, you fall asleep,” says Anushka Gopal (name changed on request), a Bangalore-based woman who spent five years at the ashram of a popular south Indian guru but chose to walk out after his sexual misconduct was caught on tape. Another cog in the brainwashing machinery is a pseudonym that goes on to become the ‘real’ identity of the person. The change is subtle but its long-term impact is drastic when it comes to erasing a devotee’s past. This is demonstrated effectively in the case of 35-year-old hotel management guru Santosh, now known as Shantimayananda after “great healing and transformation”. His parents unsuccessfully petitioned the Karnataka High Court to have him come back from Nithyananda’s ashram in Bidadi, where he has been living for six years now. “He has no concern for his mother and father, he simply thinks Nithyananda is god,” says Munnur Krishnamurthy, his distraught father.


“As publications in-charge for the guru, I once went to Tamil Nadu and bought and burnt several copies of a magazine that spoke against him.”Lenin Karuppan, Whistleblower on Swami Nithyananda


The next stage is to have older devotees perpetuate the guru’s aura and suppress an acolyte’s individuality. What the group believes is what you should believe, they are told. Meanwhile, the guru does his bit by instilling the ideal of gurubhakti and the fear of gurudroha. “He kept brainwashing devotees by saying all sins can be forgiven—but not guru­droha,” says Hemmige. To add more enigma to their aura, several of them even take to dressing as gods—Nithyananda often pretends to be Shiva-like and Asaram and Kripaluji takes on a Krishna-like get-up. Prabir Ghosh, a noted rationalist from Calcutta who claims to have taken on several hundreds of godmen, says all of them inevitably make claims of possessing some supernatural power—another important component in their marketing strategy. Rationalists argue that what is merely a placebo effect is often touted as a miraculous cure. One devotee at Jantar Mantar said Asaram cured her mother of breast cancer. Devotees also seek to protect their belief (and thus self-interest) by perpetuating the guru’s cult and refusing to buy into accusations of wrongdoings. “For them it’s not an issue of right or wrong,” says Indira Sharma, president of the Indian Psychiatric Society. “It’s as basic as protecting the one who protects you. It’s all what matters to them.”

Many followers come from a religious background, exposed to a reverential following of gurus. Then there are some hapless souls who submit to faith afresh. But the well-oiled machinery at ashrams is powerful enough to work on the minds of those with advanced degrees in science (who often possess a fine streak of credulity)  or  even without any of the circumstantial or emotional baggage that makes some people prone to unquestioning submission to a strong guru figure. “To the more sceptical devotees, the guru would say don’t believe what he says. When we realised he was not trying to sell us  his ideas, we became more receptive,” says Gopal, who studied at top engineering institutions in India and the US. “All this while, I had no idea I was being subjected to psychological slavery. It’s a kind of mind trickery,” she adds. It took her six months to realise her guru could be wrong. The revelation of the sex tapes was what finally led her to walk out of the ashram.


“The disciple longs to merge into a powerful, wise, perfect self-object—the guru. The guru is great. Partaking of his power, I am great too.”Katharina Poggendorf-Kakar, Scholar who has studied godmen


There is also the obvious influence that money power can bring for these gurus. Lenin Karuppan, who is now acknowledged as the whistleblower who leaked the sex tapes that allegedly feature Nithyananda and a Tamil film actress, recounts how he himself once helped snuff out dissent as the publications-in-charge for the guru. When Nakkeeran published an article that the guru deemed unfit for the public, he rushed to Tamil Nadu, and along with Nithyananda’s followers, he bought about a lakh copies and burnt them. But even he has words of praise for Nithyananda’s “mesmerising oratorical skills and knowledge of Hindu religious texts”.  Katharina Poggendorf-Kakar, a Goa-based scholar who has studied godmen in India, says devotees often attribute exaggerated positive qualities to their guru—unlike adults in a mature love relationship, who are in touch with their partner’s realistic qualities and failings­. “They deny unwanted characteristics that cause a ‘split’ in the mind. The disciple longs to merge into a good and powerful, wise and perfect self-object­—which is the guru. In other words, the guru is great, and thus, participating in his power, I am great too,” she elaborates. “The violent outbreaks by stern believers in support of their guru, as we have seen in Asaram’s case, are linked to this: accepting that the idealised self-object has failed means also accepting one’s own failure, which might lead to a disintegration of the self, which needs to be fought off by denying any (countering) facts and better knowledge.”
It’s not difficult to imagine that perhaps it is this systematic domination of the mind of the devotee that lay behind a poster at a Jantar Mantar that read, “Nigorey bhi kah rahey yeh baat, bapuji hai paak saaf (Even the most stubborn proclaim that Bapu (Asaram) is squeaky clean).”

Fifty shades of godmen

Sunday, September 8, 2013

Asaram Bapu's arrest on the charge of raping a minor girl is the latest in a series of sex scandals involving India's sadhus and godmen. V. Kumara Swamy and Sonia Sarkar on why gurus often get away with their sexcapades
Asaram Bapu has never shied away from talking about sex. There are YouTube videos that show him dispensing sex advice to his devotees. "Don't have sex during amavasya, purnima, Shivaratri or Holi. A child conceived on these days will be born handicapped," he warns. "Even if a child is not conceived, intercourse on this day will lead to impotence and the man could face several other problems," he adds helpfully.

But lest his devotees should despair, he tells them that there is also a right time to do it. "If a child is conceived between 12.30 and 2.30 during the day, he or she will go on to become a very intelligent person."

There's more. A booklet meant for his followers says that masturbation or homosexuality in men leads to wastage of energy, thus making them physically and mentally weak.
Unfortunately, the man who gave out such "valuable" sex advice is now embroiled in an unsavoury sex case — arrested by the Jodhpur police for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl in his ashram.
Of course, this isn't the first time criminal charges have been levelled at Asaram Bapu. In 2008, two young boys died in his ashram in Motera in Gujarat. But his trusted lieutenants say the charges against him are all fabricated.

"There has been a conspiracy to malign him for many years," says Asaram Bapu's media manager Sunil Wankhede. According to him, Asaram doesn't have any sexual desires as he is not a "common man". "He is a sant (saint). And saints don't have sexual desires," he asserts.

Though gurus or godmen in India have huge followings and are usually considered holy and utterly blameless, allegations of sexual misconduct and depravity on their part crop up with regularity.

Take Swami Nithyananda of the Dhyanapeeta Charitable Trust in Bidadi, near Bangalore. In 2010, local television channels aired footage that showed the swami in a compromising position with a Tamil actress. The same year, Aarthi Rao, a former follower of Swami Nithyananda, filed a complaint with the criminal investigation department, Bangalore, alleging sexual harassment by him.

Nithyananda was arrested but freed in 53 days. The case is now before the court.
"In India, godmen wield a lot of power over their devotees, which is a heady feeling. They have the money power and influence. So they begin to believe they can get away with anything," says Rao.
Rao, an engineering graduate of Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, and a software engineer, joined Swami Nithyananda's ashram and even changed her name to Ma Nithyananda Premeshwari Mayi.

She also signed a "non-disclosure agreement" that had a clause saying that the existence of such an agreement could not be revealed to anybody. It went on to state that the programme could involve tantric secrets associated with male and female ecstasy, nudity, access to visual images, graphic visual depictions, and descriptions of nudity and sexual activity.

Followers being sworn to secrecy is a common practice of godmen. In 2006, Vikas Joshi alias Swami Vikasanand was arrested with more than 60 CDs full of sleaze material. An influential guru in the Jabalpur area, he was with three women, one of them a teenager, when he was picked up from a city hotel.

"He had told the women who were close to him that any revelation of their sexual activities could have adverse consequences for their families or themselves," says a Madhya Pradesh police official who investigated the case.

Called "Saahab" by his followers, Vikasanand used to give pravachans (sayings) and bless his devotees wearing Ray-Ban glasses. "He claimed that he had tantric powers to cure every human misery. And his devotees, many of them well-educated, believed that," recalls the official.
Though most of his women followers refused to testify in court, Vikasanand was convicted by a Jabalpur fast track court in 2010 and is now in jail.

In another case involving Delhi-based Shreemurath Dwivedi alias Ichchadhari Sant Swami Bhimanand Maharaj Chitrakoot Wale, six women, including two airhostesses, were arrested for allegedly running a prostitution racket from his ashram.

So why do so many "godmen" get embroiled in sex scandals?

Experts say that it is the blind faith of their devotees that enables these "gurus" to influence them. "We Indians are great believers in miracles and feel that somebody can get us out of our miseries. This is the prime reason we fall for these godmen," says Prabir Ghosh, general secretary, Science and Rationalists' Association of India, Calcutta.

Sociologist Dipankar Gupta agrees that godmen prey upon the vulnerability of their followers, especially women. "Once the women are drawn in, it is easy for these godmen to force themselves upon them," he says. But he adds that sometimes, these sexual relationships are "consensual".
Naturally, the devotees dismiss all such allegations. Wankhede, for one, claims that Asaram Bapu never had sexual desires even when he was young. He also insists that Asaram's ashram is absolutely safe for women. "Men and women don't even sit together here," he says.

Then why did Asaram call the 15-year-old girl to his room? "Don't fathers meet their daughters?" he retorts. "To him, all younger women are his daughters and older women his mothers."

Asaram's devotees are equally insistent that the guru has been falsely accused. Take Rukmini Devi, who has come all the way from Kurukshetra in Haryana to pick up ayurvedic medicines for her ailing husband from Asaram's sprawling ashram on Vande Mataram Marg in Delhi's ridge reserve forest. She says all allegations against her beloved "Bapuji" are baseless. "Bapuji has been trapped by his enemies who are jealous of his popularity," says Devi.

Experts say, however, the belief that so-called godmen are above sexual impulses is totally false. "Their sexual desire is no less than that of an ordinary man," says andrologist Sudhakar Krishnamurti.
Others say that so many incidents of rape or sexual assault by godmen happen because they deprive themselves of a natural sex life. "Since they don't engage in self-stimulation or masturbation, they are left with no alternative but to molest or rape women to satisfy their sexual urge," says Mumbai-based sexologist Prakash Kothari.

Not only that, many godmen visit andrologists to deal with their sexual problems. Krishnamurti, who is also a member of the Sexual Health Committee, World Health Organization, says that the most common problem with godmen is erectile dysfunction. He also says that many come to him wanting to know how they can "perform better" with multiple partners.

Kothari asserts that some of these godmen also take drugs to enhance their sexual prowess. "Many of them confess that they want drugs to be able to perform better at sex," he says.
Shantum Seth, who had once accused a godman (who died a few years ago) of indulging in sexual misconduct, says that there is nothing wrong with them having a sexual urge, but that they should have a responsible sexual life. "Godmen should set an example by behaving responsibly as there are millions who follow them," Seth asserts.

Some godmen get away with their unpleasant acts simply because they enjoy political clout. "With the support of politicians, these godmen get a space to play. That's the irony," says sociologist Gupta.
It will be interesting to see if Asaram Bapu's case grinds on and fades into irrelevance. But one thing is certain, as long as these "holy" men enjoy the blind faith of thousands of followers, it will always be easy for them to indulge in unholy practices.

Summary:

BCCC (Broadcast Content Complaints Council) has issued an order regarding the Nithyananda scandal CD. The order questioned the authenticity of the video. The case against Nithyananda is currently pending in court, and the forensic report from FSL Delhi finds the video to be authentic. Under the circumstance, it is very unfortunate and I will be appealing to the BCCC reconsider this order, says Lenin Karuppan.

Recent Developments in Nithyananda Case

In a press meet today, Lenin addressed the media in Chennai to discuss the recent developments in the Nithyananda Case. See below for videos of the press meet and a brief summary of its content.






 



I thank all the media for coming here today. In a democracy you are rightly called as the fourth pillar. You have been playing a vital role in exposing many scandals - economic, political, social - and safeguarding the common man.

A few days ago news was published that a popular TV channel has been ordered by BCCC - a voluntary regulatory body controlling media, to apologize for telecasting “morphed video” of Nithyananda. As whistle blower in the case against Nithyananda, I submitted the original video to the police. I have personal knowledge of it and if I don’t speak now, the truth will be distorted.

I believe the BCCC was not presented with all facts and evidence. Hence I have appealed to BCCC to kindly look into this matter along with available evidence including Forensic Reports of the original video. The Council can also directly contact FSL Delhi or Karnataka CID for further details regarding the charge sheet and evidences. If required, I am also willing to appear before the Council and provide all necessary information and documents. It is unfortunate that the BCCC order can be misused by Nithyananda and his team for false propaganda. Already the news circulating in the past few days is misleading the public into believing that the video is morphed, which is far from the truth. As the case is still pending in Karnataka court, this could seriously distort the truth and even misguide the Hon’ble court. If Nithyananda is really innocent, I challenge him to prove it in a trial without any further delays.

NITHYANANDA VIDEO IS AUTHENTIC: 3 independent sources/experts have confirmed that video is NOT edited, NOT morphed and NOT altered in anyway– (1) the best forensic lab in India, Forensic Science Lab (FSL), Delhi by Govt. of India, (click here to see the FSL report) (2) Independent Forensic Expert from USA, a former senior special agent, worked for US Army Criminal Investigation Command & US Air Force Special Investigations, and testified in numerous courts in USA (click here to see USA forensic report) (3) Another nationally renowned, legendary  forensic expert with more than 50 years experience and has solved many major crimes – Padma Bushan Prof. Dr. Chandra Sekharan (click here for Dr. Chandra Sekharan's view). Refer links for the forensic reports.

AUDIO CONFESSION ABOUT THE VIDEO: Nithyananda himself pleaded with me to remain silent about the video and confessed that “its consensual sex between two adults and it is not legally wrong”. Interestingly, it means at that time he was an adult and not a 6-year old, as subsequently claimed! An audio recording of this confession is also part of the evidence in the Charge Sheet (click her to see audio recording transcription from the Charge Sheet). It is no wonder that Nithyananda has been stalling the voice test and his medical test for the past 3 years.

LATEST CLAIMS OF IMPOTENCE: Recently he claimed (in his website) that a doctor in USA has certified him to be impotent. Nithyananda has not visited USA in past 3 years! Clearly the doctor in USA did not conduct any tests on Nithyananda in USA. His statements are purely based on some reports given to him by Nithyananda, claiming it to be his test. But whose blood test report was actually sent?? And if you believe these test reports and doctor certificates, then why has he been avoiding for 3 years the simple medical test ordered by the Karnataka court? What is he afraid of?

HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION: After the charge sheet, several false cases against me the whisltblower, the victims and also targeting other key witnesses. Review the Timeline, it is clear every single case is filed in retaliation, either directly by Nithyananda or indirectly thru his blind followers. Cases are also filed against more than 50 media & even social activists who raised their voice against him. The Courts and legal process is being abused to threaten and intimidate everyone into silence. Responsible media is doing great work by continuing to expose the fraud in public interest.

MISUSING HINDUISM, BLOT ON REAL HINDU SAINTS: He claims to be a great Hindu saint working for the revival of Hinduism. Isn’t it surprising there are many complaints of “land grab” against him in Tamil Nadu, filed by ordinary Hindus? He claims he is establishing Hindu temples across the world. Everyone has seen how he destroyed his own Hindu temple in his Tiruvannamalai ashram, after receiving HR&CE notice. Suddenly a holy temple became “just a warehouse for stone statues” - the same stone statues for which daily puja, abishekam, arati, etc, was performed, and collected lakhs in donations from innocent trusting Hindus! Is this the conduct of a real Hindu saint? Or is he misusing Hinduism to communalize the issues? As Narendra Modiji said very aptly, it is nothing but a blot on Hinduism.

I assure you that I have no vested interest, but I act only in public interest, as I am myself an ardent devotee of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. I have great respect for genuine sanyasis, great saints and gnanis like Ramana, Ramakrishna, Swamy Vivekananda, whose lives were open book which inspires millions all over the world.

I pray that the Governments should take strong and swift action to bring out the truth. First and foremost tax-free status given should be withdrawn with effect from March 2010 till he is proved innocent by a court of law and absolved of all criminal complaints. Next the finances, largely contributed by innocent trusting public, should be managed by a govt. or court appointed panel of trustees and not allowed to be misused by him.

I appeal to media to continue to support truth so that public can be alerted and saved from becoming victims of fraud in the name of Hinduism.
