PSBoomBoom Shut Out

File under: Gurus Doin' Time and The Siddhi of PR

We're a little late bringing this to you, but Kreepalu (Kripalu Maharaj) protegé Swami Prakashanand Saraswati was denied permission to live at his Texas ashram as he awaits trial on child sexual molestation charges:
A state judge has again denied the request of Prakashanand Saraswati to be permitted to live on the ashram he founded near Driftwood, south of Austin.

The 79-year-old Hindu guru, known among his followers as Shree Swamiji, is accused of groping two minor girls in the 1990s. Although he has been allowed to travel freely before his trial, Prakashanand is prohibited from setting foot on the property of Barsana Dham as a condition of his parole.

Judge Charles Ramsay on Monday rejected the guru's argument that excluding him from the Hays County ashram was a violation of his First Amendment right of religious freedom and association. Prakashanand made a similar request in late August, which Ramsay also denied. A pretrial hearing in the case is set for Jan. 21.
You may recall that one of Swami's devotees put up $10,000,000 bail to ensure Boom Boom's appearance at trial. Given the current financial landscape, we imagine it's worth about half of that now. But we must tip the turban to the Swami's devotees for doing such a magnificent job with their online whitewash. You've got to scroll down pretty far to get any hints about the Swami's alleged darker tendencies.

Me too. His org is known to "get to" witnesses against their gurus, so maybe they feel they've "handled" the gals who would be testifying against him.

Hey guys, here's the real scoop on Praconanand and Kreepalu:
Kreep is distancing himself from Pracon now that Pracon has been arrested. This news comes directly from Kreep’s devotees. So this means Pracon is not welcome back in India. He keeps trying to go there, but gets told to get back to the U.S. I guess Kreep decided he's received enough millions and women from Pracon's Western mission. Now he is kicking him to the curb and throwing him under the bus. This is a huge irony, since they are both the criminal fake gurus.
So Pracon is on his own - paying high-priced lawyers to keep trying to let him back into Barsana Dham -- two hearings so far and both types "Motion Denied."
Looks like he made a tactical error by choosing his passport over access to Barsana Dham at the very first hearing. Dang, shouldn't a divine being have seen that coming?

Latest news just in - Prakash's lawyers have filed for an appeal on his latest denied request to be let back into his ashram -- he just can't stand not being able to get inside those gates where he controls the world to his benefit, desires, and whims. He's trying to say he's required to "preside over services" and if he can't, then his First Amendment rights are being violated. Well if you call showing up late and sitting on a throne having people view you for 15 minutes "presiding?" ... well that's the least of their lies. It's not exactly the letter of the law. But jkp plays fast-and-loose with the law anyway -- and has for decades: Black money, anyone?

'Kreep is distancing himself from Pracon....'? Interesting! Is this the case? How reliable is your source? If it is true then the game may very well be up, depending on the outcome of the court case of course. I presumed that Swamiji would head for India once the court case is over and if he gets off. It's a big if I know but with all of their money and power I would not be surprised if he walks free. I hope this is not the case......what do any of you think about the odd on him going down?
