The 29-year-old swami, with a penchant for the meditative techniques of Osho alias Rajneesh, according to a devotee, runs a flourishing ashram at Kallugopahalli, between Kengeri and Bidadi off the Bangalore-Mysore highway.
“In his discourses, swamiji used to say, ‘I am here to show you that you are divine.’ Consciousness has proved that he is also human to the world in his own way,” recounts the devotee after watching the “sting” video.
The video has already been branded a “sex scandal” although like with the N.D. Tiwari video, it could be argued that there is nothing palpably illegal with an adult being caught in a compromising position with another consenting adult. But if you argue that, you could argue anything.
The mission statement of Dhyanapeetam says “the goal of Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s advent on planet earth is to spread the inner science of enlightenment by delivering physical health, mental wellness and spiritual awakening to all beings irrespective of their race, gender or nationality.”
The homepage of the Nithyananda Youth Foundation website promises to help members to become “a Buddha of the inner world and Bill Gates of the outer world“.
