Swami Touts His Lack Of Brain Waves
File under: The Siddhi of PR
Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda, a 27-year-old swami on his 2005 world tour, has "astounded" a biofeedback specialist with his lack of brain activity. "The world is not going to believe this!" said the specialist and "leading researcher," Dr. William Collins.
Sure. Either that or conclude there's just not a lot going on up there.
Sri Nit [Ed.note: As we've just now dubbed him] appears to be presenting himself as a pastiche of Swami Vivekananda, Paramhansa Yogananda and our favorite hugging mommy surrogate, Ammachi. While his dashing good looks are more than enough to offset his potential lack of mental capacity, they may also end up his undoing. Such a handsome and virile young man may be tempted into dalliance, and then canoodling, which is one short step away from a full-blown guru sex scandal.
That possibility—along with the leading man qualities of Sri Nit [Ed.note: We wouldn't be surprised if he has his own makeup artist]—make him well worth watching. If he can get some traction with the satsang junkies, he definitely has a shot at the top ten. He could even be the first swami to cross over to the MTV generation. We'll know Sri Nit has made it after he makes his first cameo in a gangsta rap video.
