Oh Rajiv!

File under: The Siddhi of PR

Today a member of the Guruphiliac Facebook page turned up with this:
It was also reported that an American devotee who had fallen out of the ashram was working in association with Jody Razdik who specializes in guru bashing at a prominent web site. He was being helped by an Indian based in San Diego, who was once very deeply involved inside the Nithyananda organization but had turned malicious.
It's in an article by Rajiv Malhotra, who's been trying to be the pope of American Hinduism for like, forever.

Well, Mr. Malhotra, we'd like to offer a few corrections. While it's true that I know a former member of Nithyananda's inner circle, he was not from San Diego, although he was in California while Nithyananda was in Los Angeles. What is absolutely untrue is any accusation of maliciousness on the part of this former devotee. He never spoke ill of Nithyananda to me, not once. He was, however, acutely disappointed to see his former hero and mentor turn into such a showman. In fact, his refusal to speak any ill about his former master was a considerable display of honor and dignity, considering the circumstances.

Also, just to make it clear, I bash gurus who use they idea they have magic powers to make themselves famous. Nithyananda is a completely clear and pure example of this. It is this fact, and only this fact, that has been the impetus for my writing about him as I have.

I still cannot understand why Rajiv Malhotra wants to defend this Nithyananda.

Recently he & his followers were physically assaulted by enraged people in India.

Yeah, Jody, I read that piece when the swami PR machine was in full damage control mode - spearheaded by Mr. Malhotra. I remember being astonished at the preposterous insinuation that I was some sort of pro-Christian double agent in cahoots with you.

I was actually going to write to Mr. Malhotra recommending that he ought to first fact-check before pulling conspiratorial stories out of his ass (or worse, listening to the ashram spin machine about me and my motives,) but decided I had better things to do with my time.

Unlike my former guru, I'd never stoop so low to get my 15 minutes of fame.

Hi Jody,

I read about the law suit won by Klim against this charlatan aol SSSSSRavishankar.

BUT I very emphatically feel from my heart the entire credit for exposing this SSSSSRavishankar (the most difficult person to be defeated among the charlatans slippery being close to Democrats,alleged brahmin blahblah in my opinion) entirely belongs to you JODY alone along with Chuck,Ellen, Stuart and OTOH(ontheotherhand).

I have my own valid reasons to say so.Am not launching into all of them but only one important reason.

I started posting a lot of comments in Klim's blog. Typically many Indians went ballistic against me calling me "racist and anti Indian " knowing fully well I am also an Indian ( hindu brahmin if one wants to slot further hah the great pursuers of Vedanta indeed).

Unlike you Jody & Chuck Klim purposely deleted a lot of my comments. Very pertinent ones. But allowed inane bitchy totally irrelevant ones.

Just as you developed "Nithy fatigue" I got bitterly disenchanted with Klim.

None of these klims etc have the chutzpah , panache above all DECENCY of you JODY !

Hence my heartiest thanks congratulations to JODY & CHUCK alone!You prove you have Ma Kali's Grace in abundance.

Howdy Anonymush,

Chuck says "Hay, and think you! Jody is and likely always will remane quite a pistol! Don't here much about She She anymore. May be he's hidin his light under a bushel or too busy wrestlin his own hogs. The boy sure seems like a light weight! If he'd had any real powers he'd have done somethin about that voice of his! Should have took up smokin camels or pall malls to put some gravel in it!

Any who, I appresheate bein linked to Jody and in my heart will always reguard him as a good feller who is fully deservin of the good that comes his way.

Adios, I must mount my rusty mule and away!

Yore sadal pal,

Chuck

Thank you very much Chuck !

Within India you never know what is really happening. Latest reports say Nithy is NOT in prison. On the contrary has been consulting astrologers soothsayers ( strange isn't it) & is doing elaborate oblations in Nellaiappar Temple Thirunelveli( very ancient Siva Temple very sacred with interesting Sthala Puranams ) for disabling his opponents.

Where does he get the gumption to thumb his nose ? His nexus with people in high places & huge fan following. Many in India always remain unperturbed by such sexual abuses , blackmagic & so on. Many politicians themselves consult these charlatans.

Bombay's alleged underworld don Haji Masthan matter of factly said:-

" Most of these film producers & directors fall at my feet for financing their movies".

He was right as I have seen a photo of Raj Kapoor touching Haji Masthan's feet published in a magazine in my childhood.
