Swami Nithyananda Keeps Falling
File under: Gurus Doin' Time
The gobs of counter-propaganda lobbed into the internets by his devotees have been unsuccessful. Swami Nithyananda is in some serious shit now:
Police said the charges were slapped on the basis of details filed by Central Crime Branch (CCB) police of Chennai and Coimabatore and also statements given by a former devotee of Nithyananda, who surrendered before the Tamil Nadu police earlier this month.The depth of the pit that Nithyananda has fallen into is utterly astounding, epic, even almost divine. As high as he placed himself on his multiple gold thrones, as many times as he put his own picture higher than that of Ramakrishna and the other saints he was piggybacking on; all this seems to have gone into the formula which has determined the measure of his crash back to Earth, making the karmic geometry of this thing is off the chain.
Based on these statements, police said two cases have been registered with other accusations under sub-sections. The sections included cheating, rape, defiling place of worship and public nuisance among others.
PS: It just occurred to us that all this might not be as serious in India as it is in the States. Perhaps greening the right palms can be an adequate remedy for the swami. Please correct us if we're wrong.
