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.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.
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.
