The topic of the sex scandal of the South Indian guru Nithyananda is still hot. On TV they could not show the whole tape of this scandal as India’s restrictions for TV are high but as you know the internet nowadays is very quick and open and this is how everybody can now see the whole and uncut video online. Many of his devotees and followers are very disappointed and angry and even started riots.
Here in India it is a general belief that a Swami, a Guru, who walks around in saffron coloured clothes, should be living in celibacy. This is why people are angry. If you see that original video, you see how disrespectful he actually is towards the woman who is with him. While she is caressing him, he is watching TV, not even paying attention on the sexual activities going on. There is no love at all, he even disrespects the sexual act. You can see that this is nothing special for him, a daily event that someone takes care of his sexual desires and satisfies him orally. This is not a one-time event! But his followers believed in him.
Last year, when we were travelling in America, it was his followers who misbehaved with me and who got angry when I talked against this guru-ship and this fake Swami Nithyananda. I also wrote in my diary about this, about the wealth that is being displayed and the enlightenment that is being sold. I openly wrote and said how I did not appreciate this and his followers turned against me very quickly. You can read more about this on this and the following pages:
I do not have any connection with this group anymore but I am sure that his followers throughout the world are busy working on defending him if they haven’t turned away from him. As I said yesterday, it would have been good for him to come into public and give an honest statement, it would have spared many people’s feelings.
