Nithy's Naughtiness Reaches California

File under: Gurubusting

The sky keeps falling on Swami Nithyananda's head. Now it's a case filed in California by another of the now many disgruntled devotees:
In his complaint to California state Attorney General Jerry Brown on March 25, McKellor [former Swami Nithya Praba] has brought serious charges of sex, fraud, financial irregularities and physical abuse of devotees in the US against Nithyananda. Copies of the complaints are in the possession of Deccan Herald.

Like Lenin Karuppan, who exposed the sex videos featuring Nithyananda and a Tamil actress and also accused him of "raping" or having sex with other women in his Bidadi ashram, McKellor has claimed that at least on one occasion he "was placed as a guard in front of the door to make sure that no one, repeat no one, disturbed him and his lady guest".

While McKellor has not disclosed the date when he was asked to guard Nithyananda's room, he does mention that it took place when the godman headed a two-day workshop in a Sanatan Dharma temple in Norwalk, California. McKellor, who is a Hindu, alleges that Nithyananda "ate his meals or rested alone with young attractive (women) followers" in his private quarters at the cult organisation's Norwalk and Montclair ashrams.
Wow. Like Elin Woods or Sandra Bullock, the bad news just keeps coming for those devotees who gave their all to Nithyananda. It now seems all he really ever had to offer was a booby-trapped bhakti. May their pain soon resolve itself into wisdom.

Sri Nithyananda:

Please answer the following questions raised from your Resignation Video..

Who are these leading acharyas you met at the Kumb mala? Give their names and how they are

You said you would act according to their council? Who is made of this council?

How do we know that from seclusion you are not going to run your empire?

Who are the present Boad of trust members? Who are this reoriented board of trustees and Sadhaka?

Why can't you talk now as a present witness that future talking as independent witness?

Jody, I shore am a shadow of my own self. My teeth are givin me a fit! So when I see this Nitwityananda fellow smilin with those perfectly white tombstones he had been blessed with it irks me. The boy looks like my Uncle Luther, if he was whiter and had a bunch of moles clustered around his mouth! Luther weren't no good neither so it goes to show you why they would look so much alike!

PS I am always around. I just aint got much to say no more!

I see they've removed the "vedictempleokc" website. I'm sure the place has been packed up and shut down, which is too bad, I know at least one progressive Buddhist group that did joint activities with them. Not a lot of places where whiteys interested in Indian religion can comfortably just walk in, learn, and explore. Oh well, I'm a Pure Land Buddhist anyway LOL

Thank God , America alone can crack down. It is certainly not corrupt as India is & has been for many years.

What is galling is his total lack of remorse. Look at the smug smile on his face. Must have been emboldened by rajiv malhotra's advice. I would be glad if America cracks down on rajiv malhotra & his entire coterie whose contribution to peace & harmony is zilch.

Did he give a series of lectures on yoga in the flushing temple in NY in 2008?

This McKellor chap is sure nuts. He spent $400,000 on *one* course and an "enlightenment certificate"?! I could buy a huge house for that price. This guy gets what he deserves.
